Here we summarise results of the IPL final matches since their inception:
Some points of interest:
The IPL trophy has been won 5 times by Chennai and Mumbai
2 times by Kolkata and Deccan/Hyderabad
1 time by Rajasthan and Gujarat
Of the 8 teams which played in 2008, three have never won the trophy. They are Punjab, Delhi and Bangalore (though they have been runners-up)
An interesting meme here: Virat Kohli is a Punjabi living in Delhi who plays for Bangalore 🙂
Looking at the Man of the Match awards:
There is a mix of batsmen, bowlers and all-rounders.
The highest score by a MOM is 117* by S Watson in 2018
The best bowling by a MOM is 4-16 by A Kumble in 2009
The best all-round performance is probably 56 and 3-22 by YK Pathan in 2008
The only MOM who did not represent his country is M Bisla (2012)
Next is B Cutting (2016), who played for Australia in a few matches.
Both the Pandya brothers are here.
