Rohit Sharma top-scored in the final with a knock of 68, an inning comprising of four maximums and five boundaries.
In the summit clash, Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer opted to bat and was the highest scorer for his side with an unbeaten half-century. He remained not out on 65.
Iyer was well supported by Rishabh Pant, who also scored a half-century — his first of the IPL 2020.
Delhi posted a below-par total of 156 for seven from their allotted 20 overs.
For Mumbai, Trent Boult was the pick of the bowlers. He returned with figures of three for 30.
Chasing 157 for the title, Rohit set the tone with a half-century and he was ably supported by handy contributions from Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan.
Mumbai chased down the target with eight balls to spare and became only the second team in IPL’s history after Chennai Super Kings to win back-to-back titles.
