The tenth edition of the Indian Premier League starts on April 5, 2017 with the first match being played between defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Over the years, the IPL has been the stage of some of the most prolific individual and team performances. From Chris Gayle’s ballistic entry into the tournament in 2011 that took Royal Challengers Bangalore all the way to the final, Yusuf Pathan’s whirlwind displays for Rajasthan Royals, the rise of David Warner first as a player and then a captain to the mystery that was Sunil Narine in the 2012 IPL season. Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders are the only teams to have won the tournament more than once with two victories each.
