The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League(IPL) has come to its conclusion on a heady Tuesday night. Mumbai Indians have won the title for the fifth time – 2 more than the next best Chennai – and they become only the second team in the history of the tournament to defend their title- after CSK in 2011.
While MI looked the most complete and dominant team throughout the tournament, the rest struggled to put up their balanced eleven by the end of the league stage. Injuries dented some teams, and a few were muddled with some bizarre tactics by coach and captain. Here is a summary of how the teams fared this season.
Rating Performance Of All Teams In The IPL 2020
To put it in layman terms, MI was the most dominant team of the season. Rohit Sharma‘s side also has a claim to be the greatest T20 team of all time. The gulf between the table-toppers and the rest of the teams was huge as displayed in the magnitude of victories in the playoffs by Mumbai Indians.
Mumbai has been smart in the trade-offs and at the auction table before the IPL. Apart from their last league game versus SRH, they were never completely outplayed. They always had a perfect like for like replacement for each player in the first eleven. From Indian youngsters to overseas pros, every player who played in any game contributed to MI’s success.
