Best team in IPL – Ever since its inception in 2008, IPL has gotten better with each new season, and it never fails to entertain the fans. We have witnessed some of the greatest players play in one of the most reputed T20 tournaments around the globe. With two new additions to the pool of 8 teams next season, the tournament is only going to get better and exciting.
There are often debates in regards to which is the best team in IPL. One can safely that Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are a class above their rest when it comes to delivering consistent performances. Not surprisingly, the two sides are also the two most successful sides in the competition. Mumbai Indians have claimed five IPL titles, whereas, Chennai Super Kings, led by MS Dhoni come in second with four titles.
Mumbai Indians can be termed as the best IPL team over the course of the last 14 seasons, given that they have won the most number of titles, 5. Moreover, it is not just the titles the franchise have won, but their ability to deliver when it matters the most.
Mumbai Indians have played six IPL finals till date, triumphing on five occasions. Moreover, they have gotten the better of their rivals, CSK in three of these finals. Rohit Sharma assumed the captaincy role for Mumbai Indians in 2013, and since then the franchise have been a force to reckon with.
However, one must not take the credit away from MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings. They have managed to reach the playoffs in each season except one in 2020, where they were an utter disappointment.
|Chennai Super Kings||4||2008-2021*|
|Royal Challengers Bangalore||0||2008-2021*|
|Kolkata Knight Riders||2||2008-2021*|
|Pune Warriors India||0||2011-2013|
|Rising Pune Supergiants||0||2016-2017|
If Mumbai Indians is the best team in IPL, then CSK are the most consistent of all teams. CSK have alone managed to play 9 finals since the inception of the league. Moreover, they missed out on two seasons in 2016-17 due to match-fixing allegations.
Chennai Super Kings reigned supreme in UAE once again this year, as they claimed their fourth title after a thumping win over Kolkata Knight Riders. With the mega auction coming up before IPL 2022, there will surely be several changes being made in the composition of the teams.
