Key Players

Mumbai Indians

  • Hardik Pandya – Doing absolute justice to the term ‘All- Rounder’, Hardik Pandya is both a hard hitter and fast bowler. The most notable skill of this exuberant, confident man though, is the way he soars under pressure.
  • Jasprit Bumrah – Discovered by John Wright and led by the mad scientist of cricket, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah’s Yorkers are both a sight to watch and watch out for.
  • Kieron Pollard – The man has left us no space for doubt. With 420 runs and 10 wickets from 18 matches in 2013 IPL, 419 runs with an S/R of 163.67 and 41 from just 17 balls in the qualifier followed by 36 from 18 balls in the final, he’s the rock Mumbai Indians pull out for a banging finish.
  • Rohit Sharma – The first batsman to strike two double centuries in the ODIs, played an integral role in his former team, decan chargers, winning the title in 2009, also led the Mumbai Indians into a victory for two years as the captain and made some of the best IPL scores. But no statistics come close to translating the grace and elegance this man unveils on the pitch.

Chennai Super Kings

  • Shikhar Dhawan – His agile fielding skills and powerful batting make a perfect pick for IPL. Have had previously played for Delhi Daredevils, Mumbai Indians, and Deccan Chargers, and proving his worth in each, Dhawan is player that can be counted on.

Kolkata Knight Riders

Royal Challengers

Controversies

ipl 2018 tickets cheerleaders

Like any entertainment industry, IPL too had stirred up controversies. Some, however, got so juicy, they dominated the Indian media for months and were spoken about much more than the highest bids or IPL score. Here are a few top picks:

Slapsgiving 2008: All seemed calm as the players were shaking hands in the healthy spirit of sportsmanship after Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab match until Harbhajan slapped Sreesanth. Much was said and heard about the incident, although the actual reason for the outburst remains unknown.

The Dean Gets Expelled: IPL was considered to be Lalit Modi’s brainchild, winning him praise and appreciation for bringing India’s favorite game in a brand new package. When a BCCI set up a disciplinary committee that found Lalit Modi guilty of rigging bids, it ended with him being expelled and banned from working on any projects involving cricket.

Spot Fixing: Three players from Rajasthan Royals – Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan, and Ajit Chandila were arrested for allegedly being involved in spot-fixing. It led to the suspension of all three players and an eventual ban in 2013.

Tearleaders: South African Cheerleader Gabriella Pasqualotto started speaking up on the internet about the misdemeanor and inappropriate relations between cricketers and cheerleaders. Soon after the blogs started to garner attention, she was sacked and sent back home.
