Dubai: Rohit Sharma led defending champions Mumbai Indians to an unparalleled fifth IPL title here on Tuesday, thrashing Delhi Capitals in the summit clash five wickets.

If last year's one-run win over Chennai Super Kings was an absolute cliffhanger, Rohit's aristocratic 68 off 51 balls made it an anti-climax with Mumbai Indians chasing the target of 157 in 18.4 overs.

We're lucky that we could come to work and entertain people watching at home," said MI's star pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who went wicket-less on Tuesday but snared 27 overall this season.

Five IPL titles are certain to make Rohit the undisputed 'Numero Uno' player-cum-leader in the IPL Universe. This edition was made more challenging by the Covid-19 pandemic and the bio-bubbles that players had to endure.

Rome wasn't built in a day and neither a champion outfit that has now won five titles out of the six finals it has played.

If Jasprit Bumrah wreaked havoc in the Qualifier one, Trent Boult (3/30) decided that final was his turn to inflict the damage and he did it with a first ball beauty that Marcus Stoinis will remember for years to come.

Nathan Coulter-Nile looked like a weak-link but got the dangerous Rishabh Pant (56 off 38 balls) at the nick of time to put the brakes.
