VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL): Tickets, squads, schedule & more
The 12th edition of the IPL is now over, and what an exciting run it was!
Being a World Cup year, the IPL was bound to be fiery this time around - and boy did we see flames on the pitch. There was the phoenix that was Delhi Capitals. There was the comeback of players like Warner (692 runs!) and KL Rahul, and a match that got us talking about the spirit of cricket itself. The dramatic finale that closed the tournament was only fitting as Mumbai Indians bagged their 4th IPL title by a margin of one run.

VIVO IPL 2019 Season Overview: What happened this year?
To say IPL 2019 was dramatic would be an understatement. The opening weekend of this edition saw neck-to-neck matches between Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals, Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad. Defending champions Chennai Super Kings sent off the underperforming Challengers with flying wickets, as 10 players went out in 17.1 overs. The Challengers' poor performance continued until mid-season, after which they managed to step things up, winning 5 out of 7 matches.
By contrast, with great planning, Chennai's all veteran team made it through to the finals. However, younger players and better fielding would have benefitted the Dad Army as they lost the IPL title to Mumbai Indians. Then again, no one can forget Mumbai's Lasith Malinga last ball dismissal of CSK's Shardul Thakur with an amazing yorker!
Another great bowler was Delhi Capitals' Rabada who was vital in the death overs, and really helped Capitals make the play-offs after 7 years. He managed to deliver against hard-hitters like Andre Russell, whose superhuman batting (48 from 13 balls!) propped up the Knight Riders. The Kolkata franchise could have finished with a better spot on the points table if their bowling department and middle-order had been better organised.
Bowling got special attention this season with how Kings XI Punjab's Ashwin ran out Jos Buttler of Rajasthan Royals at 69 off 43. Fans, critics and cricket council members all started discussing the cricket rulebook, and the heart of the game itself. Rajasthan Royals had quite an emotional moment later on in the season with Shreyas Gopal taking a hat-trick in a rain-affected match (sending off Kohli, de Villiers and Stoinis). The tournament also saw excellent playing from the likes of Sandeep Lamicchane, Hardik Pandya, Chris Gayle, Rishabh Pant whose performances had fans singing their name in the stadium in every match.
