IPL 2017 stats review: From Ben Stokes' all-round show to Sunil Narine's love for dot balls

Mumbai Indians won the Indian Premier League (IPL) title for the third time by beating Rising Pune Supergiant in the final match at Hyderabad by one run. The tenth edition of IPL witnessed many gigantic sixes, dropped catches, three hat-tricks and five centuries. Some players like Rahul Tripathi, Rishabh Pant and Basil Thampi made the season big for them while big names like Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Rohit Sharma did not play to their potential. Ben Stokes proved his worth by winning three Man of the Match awards along with Most Valuable Player of the season prize.

This was only the second time that a team won the IPL title after losing the first qualifier match. Mumbai Indians did the same in 2013. MI have now won five finals in T20 cricket which is the second most by any team. Rohit Sharma has now won three IPL titles which is the most by any captain.

Here is a comprehensive statistical analysis of IPL 2017.

Mumbai Indians hit the most no. of sixes in IPL 10, while Kolkata Knight Riders hit the most no. of fours.
