So, that’s it. A tournament that spanned for almost 2 months is over in what seems like a blink of the eye. The IPL 2016 started off with a lot of one-sided affairs that became displeasing to seekers of entertainment.
However, as the competition gradually progressed, we got some fantastic games that made fans chew on their nails.
Be it AB de Villiers’ furious innings of 129 or Mustafizur’s art of bowling with brilliance in death overs, we have seen it all in the IPL. The tournament provided some glorious moments that will forever be stitched to the minds of fans.
And here are the top 7 moments from this year’s IPL…
#1 Mustafizur to Russell
There is no better sight for a bowler than watching a batsman lose his stumps to a delivery he bowled. However, if something tops that, it is witnessing the batsman fall to the ground while trying to defend his wicket.
Something like this happened with Sunrisers Hyderabad took on Kolkata Knight Riders.
Andre Russell was the most important player for KKR. His incredible power hitting in the final part of the innings is well complemented by his ability to bowl in the right areas. So when Mustafizur Rahman crashed his stumps while also making him taste the pitch, it was a sight to behold.
The 20-year old Bangladeshi bowled a solid yorker. The pace of it perhaps stunned the West Indian as he was completely out of position and desperately brought his bat down to stop the ball, falling over in the process.
