IPL Teams

Many IPL teams have tried to conquer the IPL, but none have been as successful as the Mumbai Indians (MI), who have currently won the tournament four times, including IPL 2019. Their closet competition has been the Chennai Super Kings who have won the IPL three times.

Since its inauguration in 2008, the IPL has changed arguably change the way in which cricket is now viewed, the shorter version of the game has no become an entertaining spectator for everyone, not just cricket fans.

The IPL has spearheaded this rapid rise in T20 tournaments with a glitz and glamour approach to the game, from its incredible atmosphere at stadiums across India, to the star-studded IPL teams there is plenty for cricket fans to enjoy.

Whilst man cricket enthusiast will still argue the ultimate test of a cricket player is the longer format of the game, test cricket, none can dispute that T20 cricket has become extremely demanding both physically and mentally on the cricket players during the course of the tournament.

For the upcoming IPL 2020 tournament, there are currently eight teams on course to compete, although the number of teams in the IPL has fluctuated throughout the years, with a few teams collapsing due to financial problems.

IPL 2020 Teams

The IPL 2020 teams are now finalised. There were some big moves and some even bigger auction bids lead by Australia fast bowler Pat Cummins becoming the most expensive overseas signing in the history of the tournament after Kolkata Knight Riders acquired him for an  incredible Rs.15.50 crores.

Australian teammate, Glenn Maxwell was picked up for Rs. 10.75 crores by Kings XI Punjab. The Big Show moves to Holkar Stadium, Indore. Other large auction “items” were the West Indian duo of Sheldon Cottrell and Shimron Hetmyer going for Rs. 8.50 crores and Rs. 7.75 crores to KXIP and Delhi Capitals respectively. Aaron Finch was picked up by Royal Challengers Bangalore, Eoin Morgan and Pravin Tambe went to KKR, Yashasvi Jaiswal went to Rajasthan Royals for Rs. 2.4 crores.

With it definite at this moment in time there will be the same eight teams, there has been plenty of talk from the BCCI that they may add two new teams for the next edition of the IPL. With two cities, Ranchi and Ahmedabad, being hot favourites to become the two cities to be represented.

Both cities have produced some excellent players over the years, with likes of MS Dhoni, Ravi Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah and the Pandya brothers all coming from these cities.

Arguably, Pune could be another city to return to the IPL having been present in the tournament twice under two different monikers, Pune Warriors & Rising Pune Supergiants. However, whether they will be able to push aside or make and agreement with the BCCI on financial arrangements is a massive talking point, but it would be great to see such a city like Pune with rich sports culture make a return.

IPL 2019 TEAMS

The IPL 2019 teams line-up was unchanged from the previous year’s tournament. However, the owners at Delhi Daredevils had reviewed their team’s performance in the past years and were unimpressed as they had yet to win or make a mark on any IPL tournament. This led to Delhi Daredevils getting a brand makeover and began the 2019 season with a new name and new logo.

Transforming the Delhi Daredevils to the Delhi capitals, in hopes, this would ignite a new era for the team. A big factor and arguably the main reason for this revamp was the acquisition of 50% in shares in the DD teams by JSW Sports. With that said, the team’s line-up as followed for IPL 2019:

  • Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
  • Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
  • Mumbai Indians (MI)
  • Delhi Capitals (DC)
  • Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)
  • Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)
  • Sunrisers Hyderabad (SH)
  • Rajasthan Royals (RR)

So how did the Delhi Capitals team fair in the 2019 season, well they gave a valiant effort for sure. They didn’t have any player have outstanding achievement, but they did finish third only separated by Net run rate with CSK and MI. Delhi did well in winning their Eliminator match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SH) but fell short as their team lost gas against a strong CSK team. During this tournament, David Warner picked up yet another Orange Cap for most runs and he really outdid himself as he notched up 692 runs in only 12 matches.

The Purple Cap champion for the IPL 2019 season came from CSK as Imran Tahir, a talented leg spinner took 26 wickets in 17 matches. However, Imran Tahir couldn’t help CSK beat the Mumbai Indians (MI), in what was a blockbuster final between the two teams. With two of the most decorated teams in IPL history both with big-game players going head to head again for the fourth time in the tournament, it was only 1 run in favour of the MI teams which separated them in the final.

IPL 2018 TEAMS

The IPL 2018 teams saw a cut from 10 teams down to 8 as both Gujarat Lions & Rising Pune Supergiants not get an extension to their contracts from the IPL. Both Gujarat Lions & Rising Pune Supergiants were temporarily replacing Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) as both teams were handed a two-year suspension for illegal spot-fixing back in 2013. This was an incredible moment in the months leading up to the IPL, as there was a sea of players without a team and with the potential of joining another team. With that said, the line-up for the IPL 2018 teams was as follows:

  • Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
  • Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
  • Mumbai Indians (MI)
  • Delhi Daredevils (DD)
  • Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)
  • Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)
  • Sunrisers Hyderabad (SH)
  • Rajasthan Royals (RR)

For the second season running the Orange Cap for most runs was given to a batsman from the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SH) team, it was Kane Williamson who scored a whopping 735 runs within 17 matches with an average of 52.50. Although Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) didn’t manage to get past the group stages, it was their fast bowler Andrew Tye who took the most wickets in the tournament taking an impressive 24 wickets in 14 matches.

The two teams that topped the group stages were Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SH). It was also these two teams which made their way to the final. The final was not as tight as the previous year, as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) ran out winners comfortably chasing the SRH score with one and a half overs to spare thanks to showing stopping performance from Shane Watson, who scored 117 runs off just 57 deliveries.

The CSK team put in a hard shift throughout the tournament and all the players felt they had something to prove and owned it to their fans, after coming back from a two-year ban. Winning IPL 2018 tournament put them level with Mumbai Indians as both teams had now won three IPLs.

IPL 2017 Teams

The IPL 2017 teams battled it out to become the undisputed king of T20 with eight teams geared up and ready to give it their all. The IPL teams for 2017 were as follows:

  • Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
  • Mumbai Indians (MI)
  • Delhi Daredevils (DD)
  • Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)
  • Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)
  • Sunrisers Hyderabad (SH)
  • Gujarat Lions
  • Rising Pune Supergiants

The superstars of the IPL tournaments always tend to be batsmen as the spectacle of an onslaught of sixes and the ball flying out the park tends to be more memorable. However, when it comes to the deep end of the innings this is where the depth and strength of a team are tested in the field and with the bowl.

The 2017 season was somewhat of a break-through season for India’s homegrown Bhuvneshwar Kumar a young teenage prodigy who broke onto the cricket scene when he got Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar out for a duck. Kumar went onto play for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SH) in the 2017 season and finished the tournament as the leading wicket-taker with 26 wickets in 14 matches winning the Purple Cap.

Keeping with the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SH) team, they also had their overseas player, David Warner a coveted Australian hard-hitter, receive the Orange Cap as he racked up 641 runs in 14 matches achieving the most runs in the tournament. Unfortunately, despite the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SH) having two of the best individual performers in the tournament, victory was left for Mumbai Indian (MI) who beat new boys Rising Pune Supergiants in a thrilling final by 1 run. Thanks to some incredible depth bowling by Mitchell Johnson, he helped Mumbai Indians (MI) claim their 3rd IPL trophy.
