Winners of the previous editions of the T20 League
The Indian T20 league first took place in 2008 and saw Rajasthan stun everyone under the leadership of Shane Warne to get the title. That, however, also proved to be the last time Rajasthan won the IPL and their wait for another IPL title continues till date.
In the next edition, held in South Africa due to it clashing with the general elections, Hyderabad based team Deccan scripted a remarkable turnaround to win the tournament after finishing last in the previous season. The 2010 season was the first time that Chennai could lay their hands on the trophy and they would repeat the feat again in 2011, 2018 and 2021, all under the same man – Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
A revamped Kolkata under Gautam Gambhir would emerge as the first challenger to Chennai’s dominance and win the coveted trophy twice in three years, defeating Chennai in 2012 and Punjab in 2014. But in between those two years, Mumbai under a young Rohit Sharma, clinched the trophy for the first time in six attempts. The franchise would go on to repeat that feat four more times in the next seven editions. They won again in 2015, 2017, 2019 and in 2020. Their 5 wins in IPL finals made them the most successful side in the tournament’s history. 2016 also saw a different Hyderabad based team lift the trophy to give Bangalore yet another defeat in the finals of the tournament. A new winner of the tournament came to the fore in 2022 when Gujarat, a team that was playing its first season of the tournament, enjoyed a dream run and defeated Rajasthan in the final to lift the trophy.
In this way, out of the existing 10 teams, only four have never won the Indian T20 League trophy. That small list includes newcomers Lucknow and three old-timers in Bangalore, Punjab and Delhi.
