The shortest format of the game, the T20 cricket, arguably has the most number of followers in the modern day cricket. The growing popularity of the format can largely be credited to the emergence of several T20 leagues across the globe. T20 League promises the audience a power packed three and a half hours of action with a plethora of big names on the cards for a game.

This is perhaps the solitary reason why the leagues have managed to garner immense popularity among the masses. Compare this to the longer formats, one cannot see the likes of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers playing for the same team. Neither is this possible in the T20Is. The only way this could happen was through a T20 league.

The year of 2017 saw a plethora of T20 leagues being played. In fact, the year end also saw T10 league surfacing up. While the future of T10 remains to be same, the future of T20 looks bright and fulfilling without a doubt. All these T20 leagues saw some very strong outfits emerging out to be the eventual champions.

Here we take a look at these champions outfits who were the best teams in their respective T20 leagues in the 2017 season. From the Indian Premier League to the Karnataka Premier League, the list features all the top teams:

Here are the best T20 teams of 2017:

Mumbai Indians created history by becoming the first team in the history of the IPL to win three championships. They had a dismal start to their 2017 campaign with a defeat against the Rising Pune Supergiant. However, they pulled their socks up to win 6 consecutive matches thereafter. Their skipper Rohit Sharma led from the front and aggregated 333 runs in the season.

But the real performers for them were opener Parthiv Patel and young gun Nitish Rana. Towards the fag end of the season, the Pandya brothers started peaking as welll. During the course of the tournament, they had some very tense games. This included a tie against Gujarat Lions. Jasprit Bumrah bowled a magninficent super over to seal the game for MI.

In the business end, Mumbai Indians lost to RPS in the Qualifier 1 – their third defeat in the season against the Supergiant. But they bounced back well to beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 6 wickets in Qualifier 2 and set up the title clash against RPS! In the finals, Krunal Pandya’s gutsy all-round show helped MI to win by just 1 run!
