The eighth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was probably among the closest fought ones. All the teams barring the Kings XI Punjab did really well this time around. Mumbai Indians, who won the title for the second time, went through a tough time during the first phase of the tournament but came back with a bang to seal a place in the play-offs. In the first qualifier against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), they displayed a flawless show which was then followed in the finals too that sealed the deal for them at Eden Gardens. 

Overall, the India Ka Tyohar nailed it this year and we can expect the same next season. But before it, let us get across to the highlights of the eighth season in numbers. It is not surprising that the players from CSK and RCB lead the charts!
