IPL Winner 2019: Mumbai Indians

The final of the IPL 2019 again saw the clash of the titans. Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings met again in the finals. The final went down to the last bowl.

Thus, Mumbai Indians became the champions for a record 4th time & became the most successful team in IPL history.

IPL Winner 2018: Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings became the second team to win more than two trophies in IPL. Veterans Ambati Rayadu and Shane Watson were the backbones of the batting unit.

IPL Winner 2017: Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians became the 1st team in IPL history to win the title more than two times. The first win was in 2013 and the second was in 2015. The victory margin of Mumbai Indians against the Rising Pune Supergiants in the final was just one run.

IPL Winner 2016: Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Sunrisers Hyderabad managed to win the final against Royal Challengers Bangalore by just 8 runs. David Warner masterfully crafted the team's journey through the season as a captain. But the season was more about the Virat Kohli (973 runs) - Ab de Villiers partnership in almost all the RCB matches. Virat scored 4 centuries and 7 half-centuries in the 16 innings he played! There should be no doubt about who was the orange cap winner for the season.

IPL Winner 2014: Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders became the second team to win the IPL trophy more than once. If Manvinder Bisla was the hero in the final of the 2012 edition, this time it was Manish Pandey's heroics that led KKR to chase a huge total of 199. Pandey scored a brilliant 94 from 50. Robin Uthappa from KKR won the orange cap for scoring 660 runs in 16 innings.

IPL Winner 2013: Mumbai Indians

The hitman, Rohit Sharma led Mumbai Indians to their first glory at the IPL. MI did so by defeating Chennai Super Kings in the final of the 2013 IPL. The side was clinically well-balanced throughout the tournament. The likes of Kieron Pollard, Lasith Malinga, and Mitchell Johnson were a consistent part of the team's playing XI.

IPL Winner 2012: Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders defeated the defending champions Chennai Super Kings in the final. With the KKR batsman left with the daunting task of chasing 190 in the final, Bisla took the onus of chasing on himself and replied with a swashbuckling inning of 89 from 48 balls. CSK's run feast led by Suresh Raina's 73 from 38 wasn't enough to stop the Knights from snatching the title from them.

IPL Winner 2011: Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings became the first team of the IPL to win back-to-back finals in history. The defending champions held the title against the batting titans of the tournament RCB.

MS Dhoni finally lifted the trophy after missing it in the inaugural edition. Suresh Raina, Mathew Hayden, Albie Morkel, Muralitharan, and Dhoni made CSK a strong title contender for the title right from the start of the tournament. Raina was brilliant with the bat throughout the tournament serving as the backbone of the team's batting lineup. It was his knock of 57 not out from 35 that lit up CSK's road to glory in the final against Sachin Tendulkar-led Mumbai Indians.

IPL Winner 2009: Deccan Chargers

The Chargers led by Adam Gilchrist won the second edition of the Indian Premier League. The team had some incredible hitters in them – Herschelle Gibbs, Andrew Symonds, and young Rohit Sharma.

Adam Gilchrist notched up a total of 495 runs in 16 matches and stood second in the overall list of highest run-scorers in the season behind Mathew Hayden.

IPL Winner 2008: Rajasthan Royals

Shane Warne led Rajasthan Royals to win the first edition of the Indian Premier League. A thoroughly well-balanced team with experienced batsmen like Shane Watson and Graeme Smith, an explosive batsman like Yusuf Pathan in the middle order, and a deceptive bowler like Sohail Tanvir were the backbone of the Rajasthan Royals in the first edition. But in the final against the Chennai Super Kings, Yusuf Pathan played the match of his life with contributions in both the bowling and the batting department. Yusuf first took 3 crucial wickets with a run rate of less than a bowl and scored a quickfire 56 from 39.
