Chennai Super Kings defeated the Mumbai Indians defeated the Chennai Super Kings by 1 run in what was an absolutely humdinger of a match in the final of the Indian Premier League at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, in Hydrabad.
Here are the list of all the winners :
David Warner of Sunrisers Hyderabad, with 692 runs in 12 matches walks away with the Orange Cap this year. Warner literally toyed with the bowling line-up of all the teams as he scored a total of 9 half-centuries in totality .The Orange cap is awarded to the best batsman of the whole tournament, which is determined by most numbers of runs scored. Warner also received a Rs 10 lakh prize money.
The Purple Cap winner this season was donned by CSK’s leg-spinner Imran Tahir, after he picked up a total of 26 wickets in 17 matches. With this, he became the most successful spinner in the history of IPL. He too received a prize money of Rs 1o lakh. It was a neck-to-neck battle for the Purple Cap, as Tahir just pipped Kagiso Rabada by 1 wicket. Taking nothing away from Tahir, he was relatively lucky as Rabada had only played 12 matches in the tournament.
The next highest wicket-taker was CSK’s Deepak Chahar with 22 wickets in 17 matches.
You always celebrate the winners at a time like this. But you have to pause and acknowledge a sensational campaign by #CSK.
