TATA IPL 2024: Record Breaking Thrills and Ultimate Watch Parties

Cricket fans, brace yourselves! The Tata Indian Premier League 2024 has been an absolute rollercoaster, a non-stop thrill ride of shattered records, jaw-dropping catches, and enough sixes to make your head spin. As we inch closer to the grand finale, it’s time to take a look back at some of the most mind-blowing stats of the season, and – of course – make some bold predictions on who can lift the trophy of the biggest domestic T20 cricket league in the world. If this is the way T20 cricket progresses, our ODI and Test format might get insecure very soon.

A Season of Broken Records.. Literally

This IPL season, the record books haven’t just been rewritten, they’ve been torn up and thrown out of the stadium like the sorry cricket ball.

Home Sweet Home Run: For the first time in IPL history, the first nine matches of the season saw every single home team emerge victorious. Talk about home-field advantage! Now Indian pitches are home to players from all around the globe.

Sunrisers Smashing It: The Sunrisers Hyderabad haven’t just raised the bar, they’ve launched it into the stratosphere. They set a new IPL record with a mind-blowing 287/3 against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, and they also hold the record for 3 out of 5 highest scores in IPL cricket history. This is not the first time RCB is in a record that they never seeked.

The Chase of the Century: The Punjab Kings pulled off the highest successful run chase in T20 history, chasing down a mammoth 262 set by the Kolkata Knight Riders. To make things even crazier, this IPL 2024 match also witnessed the most sixes ever in a T20 match – a whopping 42! Yeah you are reading it right, it is a single match statistic.

Show Me The Money! Mitchell Starc etched his name in IPL history as the most expensive player ever, sold for a whopping 24.5 Crore to the Kolkata Knight Riders. Take everything from us, the ODI trophy, the money, now just the IPL 2024 cup remains, “ye mat le jaana Starc”.

Powerplay Dominance: The Sunrisers Hyderabad, those record-breaking powerhouses, smashed their way to 107 runs in the Powerplay against the Delhi Capitals, the second-highest ever in T20 cricket. They’re also the first team to break the 100-run Powerplay barrier twice in a single season. Boom! When you include Travis Head and Pat Cummins with the likes of Henrick Klassen in the mix, you know the opponents won’t have a good time.

Who’s Taking Home the Trophies? 

Orange Cap (Most Runs): It’s a photo finish, The King takes it away yet again with an unmatched 700+ runs. Behind him is our young skipper Rituraj Gaikwad, following the footsteps of the legend no. 7. Although both the teams couldn’t make the cut, they gave us magical memorabilia of stellar batting knocks.

Purple Cap (Most Wickets): This one was a close call between two of our marquee Indian bowlers. Jaspreet Bumrah had an amazing run to show us he is ready for the world cup but our death bowling stalwart from Punjab, Harshal Patel took it away with a margin of just 4 wickets. Tied to Bumrah, was our Tamil Nadu’s leg spinner Varun Chakravarthy who didn’t win the cap but is eyeing to bag the cup this season. 

Highest Sixes in the Tournament: It had to be a player from Sunrisers Hyderabad, considering the rampage they have shown this season. And it is none other than. Abhishek Sharma. It looked as if he was batting like they’re playing a video game on easy mode.

The Final’s Fever Begin

It all comes down to this – the epic final between the top dogs Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad! KKR has had SRH’s number this season, but can the Sunrisers exact sweet revenge on the biggest stage of them all?

Get ready for some mind-blowing clashes! Will Mitchell Starc finally get the better of his Aussie mate Travis Head? Can Abhishek Sharma continue his ballistic hitting form against the wily Sunil Narine’s bag of tricks? And who will send more balls out of the park – the one and only Andre Russell or the unstoppable Heinrich Klassen?
