It's been 14years. Happy Birthday to the best thing that happened to Cricket... #IPL
The English are very good at inventing things. They invented the t20 league, nd allowed India to Hijack
We launched our own t20 league Idea was floated by Lalit Modi.
Indian giants Dada, Dravid, Laxman, Sehwag, Dhoni , Sachin became icon players, Shane Warne coached and Captained RR.
And the opening match was a treat for all the fans. Brendon hit 13 sixes in a t20 game, which was unimaginable in those days. Strike rate of 216 was unbelievable.
Swapnil Asnodkar and Kamran Khan were the find , Reality show winner Dinesh Shlunkhe rubs shoulder with Shane Warne and Grame Smith,
The Perfect rags to riches story.
Cricket meets Bollywood, and it became Blockbuster.
An Indian film star hugging a Pakistani Cricketer because they won at Kolkata... As a Cricket fan, it was amazing.
Andrew Flintoff earned 1.5 million dollar in 4 weeks, he went back said, I m earning more than footballers,
IPL moved to South Africa, Decan Chargers created history, Kumble's Jumbo Performance with the ball, making Gilchrist his bunny was the highlight of that season..
Some rear guard Performance from Rohit Sharma, Harmeet Singh, Rp singh helped DC immensely..
2010 was the year of CSK, the spectacular comeback . Mr IPL Suresh Raina played a key role along with Vijay. Bollinger nd Ashwin bowling in the Powerplay, nd the field set by Dhoni to dismiss Pollard was nothing short of brilliance. Nd finally the consistent team won the title..
Slowly it became a integral part of our Life, in 2013 something dramatic happened, just before the final, we saw this drak cloud , it's was absolutely disheartening.
Mumbai Indians won the title for the 1st time, but Indian Audience were sad with all these Scandals
As life goes on, in 2014 Kkr won the title for the 2nd time, in 2015 consistent Mumbai again edged past Csk to win for the 2nd time
We saw two new IPL teams in 2016, we saw Dhoni and Raina playing against eachother in a Cricket Field, for all the Csk fans, it was heartbreaking..
2018 was like a Bollywood Movie, as Csk wrote their own history, a new hero emerged in every game, and Captain cool went on to win the 3rd title.. the Dad's army proved everyone wrong. Experience has it's own value, they showed that with perfection.
2019 and 2020 was all about Mumbai Indians..they hardly gave anyone a chance, winning back to back titles they created history, 5 titles in 13 years speaks volume. they are most successful team captained by the most successful skipper called Rohit Sharma.
King 👑 Virat is on the verge of scoring 6k runs , he is the leading run scorer of this cash rich league, Srilankan Legend took 170 wickets, and that Malinga chant in Wankhede is unforgettable.
Australian David Warner won 3 orange caps as he emerged top scorer in 3 seasons.
This picture describes the greatness of IPL, A west Indian legend lifting a Srilankan giant after winning the title for Mumbai..
Dj Bravo mentioned Chennai as his 2nd home, A man from Jharkhand worshipped and termed as #Thala in down south.
IPL is an emotion.
India premier league is the best t20 league across the Cricketing world. The Quality of Cricket and the brand value is sky high..
Just one thing I can say, Cricket is blessed to have IPL.
As a genuine fan, I m following this league since the beginning, Proud to be a Fan @IPL ❤️

Top 6 Big Bill Overseas Flops in IPL:

The 13th Edition is just 6 Days Away.
Over the years we saw IPL becoming a global League.
Overseas players Played a massive role in IPL Success.

But Some Big Guys Failed to replicate his Reputation into Performance Despite having Big money.
1. Ben Stokes (RR 2018);
After a Stellar 2017 with RPSG , Stokes bought by RR for a Whopping 12.5 Cr.
But in 13 matches he Scored a mere 196 runs with a Strike rate of 120+.
With the ball just 8 Wickets...
Failed to justify the Pricetag. Seems like he lost his touch.
2. Andrew Flintoff (CSK-2009);
Sold for a Record 9.66 Cr by Csk During that 2nd edition. Flintoff was the big guy in the Cricketing Town in those days.
But Suffered a Knee injury Nd only played 3 matches.
62 runs with the Bat Nd 2 Wickets puts him in the Overseas Flops list

Underrated Xi of IPL..

Indian Premier League- Where Talent meet Opportunity..
It's been 12yrs ... Since 2008 The Cash Rich league witnessed loads of Talented players.
There have been some Outstanding performers , Who without getting much attention have gone about their Business.
1. Shaun Marsh-
The Former opener of Kxip Started that Inaugural edition with a bang ... Nd went on to win the Orange Cap...
He scored 2477 Runs at a AVG of 40 with 20 half Centuries...
Very Unfortunate that he hasn't given many chances in the last few seasons... @shaunmarsh9
2. Robin Uthappa;
He has been a vital Cog for KKR over the last 6 seasons...
He was the leading Run Scorer in that 2014 edition ... In his Career he scored more than 4000 runs with a good Strike rate of 131.
Such a gem but sadly he isn't as much talked in IPL..@robbieuthappa
