IPL 2024 Was INSANE! Check Out These UNBELIEVABLE Stats!

The dust has settled on the IPL 2024 season, and the Kolkata Knight Riders have emerged victorious, hoisting their third trophy! Their dominance was undeniable, mirroring the record-breaking season that unfolded across the league.

IPL 2024 in Numbers

KKR’s Stellar Season:

  • Champions with a Minimalist Approach: The Knight Riders lost a mere three matches throughout the season, replicating the record set by Rajasthan Royals in 2008. Talk about a dominant run!
  • Russell and Starc Deliver Knockout Punch: The final saw a one-sided affair, with Andre Russell and Mitchell Starc bowling out Sunrisers Hyderabad for a measly 113 runs – the lowest total ever recorded in an IPL final! This paved the way for Venkatesh Iyer’s swashbuckling 52 off 26 balls to seal the deal for KKR.

Statistically Speaking: A Season of Extremes

  • King Kohli Retains Run-Scoring Crown (Despite the Grumbles): Virat Kohli silenced his critics by topping the run-scoring charts with a staggering 741 runs, albeit falling short of his own IPL record of 973 runs set in 2016.
  • Sixes Soar to New Heights: Get ready to raise your eyebrows! IPL 2024 witnessed a whopping 1260 sixes – the most ever in a single season, surpassing the previous record of 1124. Talk about a power-hitting extravaganza!

Individual Brilliance Lights Up the League

  • Narine Makes History (Again): Sunil Narine etched his name deeper into IPL folklore by clinching his third MVP award (2012, 2018, 2024). He now stands alone as the player with the most MVP titles in the league’s history.
  • Harshal Patel: The Purple Cap King (Twice Over): Harshal Patel bagged the Purple Cap for the second time in his career, finishing the season as the leading wicket-taker with 24 scalps. He joins an elite club alongside Dwayne Bravo and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who have also achieved this feat twice.
  • Chahal Joins the 200-Wicket Club: The ever-reliable Yuzvendra Chahal reached the coveted milestone of 200 wickets in the IPL, solidifying his place among the tournament’s legendary spinners.
