Mumbai Indians (MI) became the first team to win four IPL titles and Rohit Sharma became the first player to be part of five IPL winning teams as Mumbai Indians defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Hyderabad with the joint-narrowest win margin by runs (1 run) in an IPL final.

It was the combined effort of Jasprit Bumrah, Rahul Chahar, and Lasith Malinga that aided Mumbai to trump CSK for the fourth consecutive time this season. Shane Watson’s knock of 80 runs went in vain as Mumbai denied MS Dhoni the 100th victory as a CSK captain in IPL.

There were many records created and broken throughout this IPL season. Let’s look at some of the standout stats from the 12th edition of the league.

Imran Tahir now holds the record of taking most wickets among spinners in an IPL season — 26 in 2019.
