Indian Premier league – IPL winner and runner up teams list details with records and players performance information here. Previous IPL championship winners And runners up teams 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and specially who will become Champion in 2013?
In last 5 edition of Indian Premier League total four teams have won the IPL so far – Rajasthan Royals, Deccan Chargers and Chennai Super Kings (twice), Kolkata Knight Riders. This is an attempt to find the common thread between these 3 sides, and try and examine what it possibly takes to win the longest competitive league in cricket history.
First, on a team level (and on a scale of 0 to 5), the four champions till date register these as their
- Winner Teams – Rajasthan Royals (2008) – 1.95,
- Deccan Chargers (2009) – 2.06,
- Chennai Super Kings (2010) – 1.96,
- Chennai Super Kings (2011) – 1.95.
- Kolkata Knight Riders (2012)
The interesting exception here was Dhoni’s 2011 team – the defending champion – which performed erratically in the first part of the tournament and had a high failure rate. But they had two things going for them – one, no reliance on any specific player/s; a lot of players (8, to be precise) had an impact of over 2, which eventually made the team a cohesive unit. Two, quite a few of those players were big match players – who relished the big occasion and were fully turned-on for it when the time came.
It is very curious that in all four previous years, the team with the second-highest team impact at the end of the league phase went on to win the tournament. All four years – so it is probably not entirely a coincidence.Dhoni’s team clearly had proven players in this respect – whereas Warne and Gilchrist, as captains of the other two winning sides, had the ability to inspire their team-members by getting out the best from the younger players (a key contributor) and also performing at their best in the big moments.

Here’s a year-wise list of observations information:
IPL 2008 – Rajasthan Royals
(Captain – Shane Warne)
Warne led Rajasthan Royals as they made it to the knockouts with style winning 4 of their last 5 league matches, and topping the league table (Delhi Daredevils topped the impact charts though). Match-winning young players came into the fore – all suitably inspired by Warne to give their best – Shane Watson, Swapnil Asnodkar, Munaf Patel, Yusuf Pathan and Sohail Tanvir, along with Grame Smith and Shane Warne himself, all delivered with consistency and combined well as a unit.
Rajasthan Royals had the highest batting unit in the tournament at the end of the league phase. They also had the highest Strike Rate and Chasing impact and were the most consistent side in batting (lowest failure rate) at the end of the league phase. Graeme Smith, Swapnil Asnodkar, Shane Watson and Yusuf Pathan were amongst the high impact batsmen in the tournament. Watson and Pathan were the key batsmen with Strike Rate impact and Watson, yet again, was the key batsman alongside Smith with Chasing.
Rajasthan Royals had the 4th highest impact bowling unit in the tournament at the end of the league phase. They also had the highest Economy and Pressure Building (ability to build pressure with quick wickets) amongst all teams at the end of the league phase.
At the end of the league phase, they had the 2nd highest in the tournament behind Delhi Daredevils. Interestingly, they met DD in the semi-final and Watson’s all-round and Patel’s bowling performances KOd them at crunch-time.
6 of the Rajasthan’s players were high impact players (of 2.5 or more) in the tournament at the end of the league phase – the highest for any team. Shane Watson, Swapnil Asnodkar, Yusuf Pathan, Graeme Smith, Sohail Tanvir, and Kamran Akmal. Of these players, Watson, Asnodkar and Pathan delivered tournament-defining performances as well for Rajasthan Royals by giving high impact performances in the two knockout games.
IPL 2009 – Deccan Chargers
(Captain – Adam Gilchrist)
The side that had ended last in the IPL table in 2008 dramatically turned around their fortunes through Gilchrist’s captaincy and high impact performances from Andrew Symonds, Dwayne Smith and Rohit Sharma. The side scraped through the league matches to just qualify (4th team in the league table – but with the second-highest impact) for the knock-outs losing 3 of their last 5 league matches and both their last 2 matches. Once they qualified, Gilchrist led from the front in the semi-final against the highest impact side in the tournament to take them to the final.
Deccan Chargers had the 2nd highest impact batting unit in the tournament at the end of the league phase. They had the highest Strike Rate and were also the most consistent batting unit in the tournament till then. Deccan’s batting revolved around 4 foreign players – Andrew Symonds, Dwayne Smith, Adam Gilchrist and Herschelle Gibbs. Symonds, Smith and Gilchrist were also the key batsmen when it came to Strike Rate for the team – a crucial element in T20 cricket.
Deccan Chargers had the highest impact bowling unit in the tournament at the end of the league phase. They had the highest impact team on all bowling parameter and were also the most consistent bowling unit in the tournament at the end of the league phase. Their bowling revolved around performances from Fidel Edwards, RP Singh and Pragyan Ojha and even a vital contribution from Rohit Sharma.
They had the 2nd highest in the tournament at the end of the league phase behind Delhi Daredevils, yet again. Eerily, it is they, the eventual champions, who met Delhi Daredevils in the semi-finals, where brilliant performances from Ryan Harris and Gilchrist ensured that their team reached the final.
6 of the Deccan Chargers’ players were high impact players ( of 2.5 or more) in the tournament at the end of the league phase – the highest for any team. Andrew Symonds, Adam Gilchrist, Dwayne Smith and Rohit Sharma led the pack while Scott Styris and Chaminda Vaas contributed in between. Symonds and Gilchrist went on the deliver tournament-defining performances while Gibbs, Ojha (both in the final) and Harris (semi-final) also delivered tournament-defining performances for their team.
IPL 2010 – Chennai Super Kings
(Captain – MS Dhoni)
Dhoni’s team has had the lethal combination of individual brilliance as well as team cohesiveness. The team won a lot of games on team strength supporting the individual brilliance well, including the final against Mumbai Indians. They were inconsistent during the league phase though and it could have cost them a place in the knockouts – but they scrappily won 5 of their last 7 league games.
Chennai Super Kings had the highest impact batting unit in the tournament at the end of the league phase. Their batting relied on Murali Vijay’s consistency as an opener and Raina and Badrinath’s consistency in the middle order. While Raina and Badrinath absorbed a considerable amount of pressure for the team, Raina also was a key batsman alongside Vijay when it came to Strike Rate.
Chennai Super Kings also had the highest impact bowling unit in the tournament at the end of the league phase. Despite the fact that they were not the highest impact team on any individual batting or bowling parameter, it demonstrated the team effort that they could put with a lot of players contributing to the success regularly. Bollinger, Muralitharan and R Ashwin took charge of the bowling department while Jakati contributed very consistently.
They had the 2nd highest in the tournament at the end of the league phase behind Mumbai Indians who were much more consistent than Chennai Super Kings during the league matches. CSK faced MI in the final where a strong performance from Raina around vital contributions from all the players ensured that they edged past them.
3 of the Chennai’s players were high impact players (of 2.5 or more) in the tournament at the end of the league phase. Royal Challengers Bangalore and Deccan Chargers had a higher number of high impact players but only a couple of them could rise to the big match occasion and deliver – the main reason why both the teams failed in the semi-finals. Raina, Dhoni and Bollinger led the pack in the league games and also gave tournament-defining performances in the knock-outs while Badrinath gave a tournament-defining performance under pressure in the semi-final. Dhoni’s team was also very consistent as 16 of the players managed to have an of 1 or more in the tournament – a remarkable titbit, this.
IPL 2011 – Chennai Super Kings
(Captain – MS Dhoni)
Starting the tournament as defending champions, Dhoni’s team yet again started on a slow note, winning just 2 of the first 5 matches. However, they gathered momentum in the last 9 matches as they won 7 of them to be second on the league table (and also the second-highest impact side). In the playoffs, a familiar assurance came into the fore again, as they prevailed with something to spare.
CSK had the 4th highest impact batting unit at the end of the league phase. They also had the highest Strike Rate and were 2nd highest impact batting unit at absorbing pressure before the playoffs began. Their batting revolved around the joint efforts of 5 batsmen throughout the tournament – Hussey, Raina, Badrinath, Dhoni and Vijay. Dhoni led the pack on Strike Rate while Badrinath led them on pressure, performing complementary roles with great cohesion.
CSK had also the 5th highest impact bowling unit in the tournament at the end of the league phase, including the 3rd highest economy. Their bowling revolved around consistent performances from R Ashwin and high impact performances from Bollinger with the rest chipping away. Ashwin led the pack on economy while Bollinger took wickets consistently.
However, after combining batting, bowling and all-round impact of the team, CSK had the 2nd highest in the tournament at the end of the league phase behind Deccan Chargers. Astonishingly, DC never made it to the playoffs despite consistent performances from quite a few players as they lacked high impact players (2.5 or more).
3 of the Chennai’s players were high impact players (of 2.5 or more) in the tournament at the end of the league phase. Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders had a higher number of high impact players but Chennai produced the maximum number of big match performances in the tournament – a testimony to their players’ abilities in the big match scenario. For the first time in IPL history, all the 3 high impact players at the end of the league phase from the 4 IPL winning teams were also Indians – Dhoni, Raina and R Ashwin – the last two also producing tournament-defining performances (with Hussey, Vijay and Jakati joining them in the final with high impact performances).
IPL 2012 – Kolkata Knight Riders
(Captain – Gautam Ghambir)
A calm Gautam Gambhir was also seen shaking hands and behaving like a sportsperson. The winning captain expressed himself with words like “Mission Accomplished,” unlike what his team’s owner was doing elsewhere, calling his daughter and other girls in his family as “the cheer girls of IPL”.The tension was so much that KKR captain Gambhir till the time they won looked as if he was bombarded. But Manoj Tiwary hit two consecutive balls for four in the last over and celebration started, Shahrukh Khan (owner of KKR) was ecstatic as were the team players. For living in shadows for 4 IPL season they emerged in front of the stage and what a rising it was. Throughout the tournament KKR played superbly and fixed their spot in playoff just behind Delhi Daredevils. They defeated Delhi in the first Qualifier and went straight to IPL.
His banter seemed in bad taste against a team that won the IPL twice in the past, and even as a level-headed MS Dhoni was seen waving and thanking his supporters despite the loss.Clearly, SRK isn’t used to winning on field, and perhaps without a script to read out from, was making a mess of himself.
Earlier, CSK made 189-3 setting a tough target of 190 for KKR to win.KKR stumbled early when captain Gautam Ghambir was out for just one run on the board. An untested Bisla was sent in. It was a good choice. Man of the match Bisla made 89 off just 48 balls, and it turned out to be a match-winning innings.
CSK seemed to be on a roll earlier last night as they hammered 189-3 in 20 overs against the Kolkata Knight Riders.An electrified MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai was filled to capacity to support the men in yellow lift the Indian Premier League trophy for the third time.
Man of the match Bisla said: “I am feeling very happy that I played my part. I replaced Brendon who is a class player. His record speaks for himself. Due to Balaji’s injury, we had to leave him out, I am lucky that I got a chance. Till the last ball, it did not feel like we had made it. I don’t think I have hit as well, good to play this in the finals to help win it for my team.”
Here we have updated all the teams statistics for first five seasons. Chennai is the most successful team in IPL T20 history. They become champion in twice also they have winning percentage 59.37. And their lowest performance also Semifinal. The next team is Mumbai Indians. They have very good winning average but they not yet become a champion. Their winning percentage is 56.57. Lowest performance is 7th position in 8 team.

India can’t wait for the sixth season of the IPL to begin. And neither can we. This is going to be a three-way battle between Tariq Engineer, a closet CSK fan, who is rooting for Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals. Ashish Magotra, who is backing Chris Gayle to help Bangalore cruise to a memorable and unstoppable win and Abhilasha Khaitan, who doesn’t really back any team but wants the most fun team to be now which is that.
