The IPL festival is about to start on April 9 and the teams have always felt the pressure of the big stages over the last 13 editions of the tournament. The IPL 2021 is scheduled to be held in six venues in India namely Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Delhi, and Ahmedabad.
This will be a big year considering the mega auction coming up next year and the franchises will be looking for the players that will be retained ahead of the auction. The last IPL edition was a massive success and the BCCI will be looking to go one step better this year. Here are the 5 biggest chokes in the tournament.
5 Biggest Chokes In The Tournament:
Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore 2016 final:
The IPL 2016 final was a big day for both the teams who haven’t won an IPL trophy until that and pressure played a huge part in deciding the outcome of the match. Sunrisers batted first and Warner got off to a blistering start with 63 off 38 deliveries. Ben Cutting’s 39 off 15 balls allowed SRH to finish off in style with a massive score of 208 onboard.
RCB had an excellent batting lineup and they believed that the job could be done. They started the chase really well with Gayle and Kohli dominating the proceedings. They were cruising at 114/0 at the halfway mark until Gayle was dismissed and an array of wickets fell post-Gayle’s departure. Eventually, they lost by 8 runs after being on the verge of winning and middle overs was a nightmare for the RCB batsman where they lost a cluster of wickets.
