IPL 2018

7 Apr 2018 - 27 May 2018

The eleventh season of the Indian Premier League started with a bang on 7th April at the Wankhede Stadium. The opening match between defending champions Mumbai Indians and the Chennai Super Kings ended in a last ball thriller win for the Yellow Army. With a lengthy IPL schedule, the fans are in for many such nail-biting matches.

 

CSK and Rajasthan Royals made their return to the cash-rich league after two years and made their presence felt. CSK stands on the top of the IPL points table, having won four of their five encounters. Clinching convincing wins, Rajasthan has three matches under their belt from the six played.

 

Defending champions Mumbai Indians have managed to win just one out of their five encounters. What has stood out is that, they lost two of the matches by a margin of just one wicket. Both CSK and SRH defeated them by a margin of one wicket.

 

Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina have been head-to-head in becoming the highest run scorer in IPL. With 4658 runs, Raina is just nine runs ahead of the Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Kohli. In the list of highest runs scorers of 2018, Kohli is currently on the second position with 231 runs behind RR's Sanju Samson, who has 239 runs.


In the second week, Chris Gayle and Shane Watson hit a century each. Gayle has scored 229 runs from just three innings, hitting two half-centuries and one century.


In the very first week of the IPL 2018, quite a few number of records have been broken by the cricketers. In the Chennai vs Kolkata match held at Chepauk, a total of 31 sixes were hit, the most in an IPL match till now. KKR hit 17 biggies, while CSK hit 14.

 

Kings XI Punjab’s KL Rahul hit a half-century against Delhi Daredevils in just 14 deliveries, making it the fastest IPL fifty ever. The previous record was shared between Yusuf Pathan and Sunil Narine, who hit 50 runs in 15 delivers.

 

With a half-century against KXIP, Delhi Daredevils skipper Gautam Gambhir became the second player after David Warner to hit 36 half-centuries in IPL. They both currently hold the record for most half-centuries in the IPL. However, Gambhir is yet to hit a century, while Warner has three to his name.
