The very first edition of IPL was won by Rajasthan Royals under the captaincy of Shane Warne. The team flourished as it was thoroughly well balanced with experienced batsmen like Shane Watson & Graeme Smith, a fierce batsman like Yusuf Pathan in the middle order and an ambiguous bowler like Sohail Tanvir were the backbone of Rajasthan Royals. Yusuf Pathan was seen playing the match of his life in the finals against Chennai Super Kings, contributing in both bowling and batting. Yusuf took the first 3 crucial wickets with a run rate less than a bowl and scored an amazing 56 from 39. Rajasthan Royals won by 3 wickets. 


Deccan Chargers under the captaincy of Adam Gilchrist won the second edition of IPL. The team consisted of some incredible players like Herschelle Gibbs, Andrew Symonds & Rohit Sharma. The most important role in the team was played by Pragyan Ojha where during the journey he took 18 scalping wickets in the tournament. Adam Gilchrist bagged a total of 495 runs in 16 matches and gained the second position in the overall highest run-scorers list in the season following Matthew Hayden. The team won by 6 runs. 


MS Dhoni ultimately lifted the IPL trophy after its near-miss in the inaugural edition. With an army like Suresh Raina, Matthew Hayden, Albie Morkel, Muralitharan, and Dhoni himself, the team was entitled to win right from the start. An absolutely brilliant performance by Raina proved to be the backbone of the team’s batting line up. It was his outstanding knock of 57 not out from 35 which brightened CSK’s road to glory in its final against Sachin Tendulkar’s led Mumbai Indians. The team won by 22 runs. 


CSK became the first team of IPL to have won back to back finals in the history of the tournament. The defending champions won the title against the batting champions, RCB. CSK defeated the batting champions with their own lit performer, Michael Hussey who played some of the most important innings throughout the tournament. Hussey and Murli Vijay’s opening partnership of 159 runs against RCB was one of the main reasons for CSK’s consequent win. CSK won by 58 runs.  


Kolkata knight riders won the fifth edition of IPL against the defending champions CSK. When CSK challenged KKR to chase a daunting 190, Bisla took it upon himself and responded with a smashing 89 from 48 balls. Run feast of CSK lead by Raina’s 73 from 38 wasn’t enough to stop the Knights from snatching away the title. KKR won by 5 wickets. 


Mumbai Indians lead by hitman himself Rohit Sharma, saw its first glory in 2013 by defeating CSK in the finals. MI demonstrated to be a clinically well-balanced team throughout the season. Players like Kieron Pollard, Lasith Malinga, and Mitchell Johnson proved to be a consistent part of the team’s playing XI. Mumbai Indians won by 23 runs. 


Kolkata Knight Riders (joined CSK) and became the second team to have won the title twice. If Manvinder Bisla was called the hero of the 2012 edition, this time Manish Pandey led KKR to its glorious victory by chasing a total of 199. Pandey scored a splashing 94 from 50. Kolkata Knight Riders, Robin Uthappa won the orange cap for scoring 660 runs in 16 innings. The team won by 3 wickets. 


MI became the third team after CSK & KKR to have won the IPL title more than once. The extraordinary balance of MI led them to lift the trophy once again. The batting unit consisted of marvelous players like Simmons, Rohit Sharma, Ambatic Rayadu and Kieron Pollard. The bowling unit was led by Slinga Malinga who took 24 wickets in the tournament but missed getting the purple cap as it was bagged by Dwayne Bravo who was a step ahead of him by scalping two extra wickets. The team won by a glorious 41 runs. 


Sunrisers Hyderabad saw a close win in IPL 2016 against RCB by just 8 runs. The season’s team journey was masterfully carved by the captain David Warner. But the spotlight was stolen by an astonishing partnership of Virat Kohli and Ab De Villiers in almost all matches. 4 centuries and 7 half-centuries were scored by captain Virat Kohli, leaving us in no doubt about the orange cap winner of the season. Sunrisers Hyderabad won by 8 runs. 


Mumbai Indians became the first team in history to have won the IPL title thrice. The team saw their first win in 2013 and second win in 2015. The victory margin by which Mumbai Indians won against Rising Pune Supergiant in the finals was just 1 run. Rohit Sharma, the hitman and the captain of Mumbai Indians were extraordinary. 


CSK became the second team, following Mumbai Indians to have won the IPL more than twice. The batting unit was led by brilliant Ambati Rayadu and Shane Watson. Dhoni, as usual, proved to be the best finisher of the game. The CSK bowling team was lucky to have MS Dhoni and Dwanye Bravo as their backbone for the bowling attack. The team won by 8 wickets. 


The 2019’s IPL finals saw the clash of titans, Mumbai Indians & Chennai Super Kings met again at the ground and fought till the last bowl. Malinga’s off-cutter ruined Shardul Thakur’s hope of scoring even 1 run in the super over, thus Mumbai Indians emerged as champions and won the title for the fourth time. The team won by 1 run. 


The 13th edition of IPL was won by Mumbai Indians against Delhi Capitals. The captain (Rohit Sharma’s) cracking knock of 68 runs in 51 balls lead the team to their fifth title as they drowned Delhi Capitals by 5 wickets in a one-sided match in Dubai.
