The twelfth edition of IPL has finally come to an end with Mumbai Indians securing a narrow one-run win over Chennai Super Kings in a thrilling final in Hyderabad. With 18 runs required from the last two overs, Jasprit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga did very well to defend. It is the fourth title win for them with the previous three coming in the years 2013, 2015, 2017 respectively. Bumrah was awarded the Man of the Match for his superb spell of 2/14 in 4 overs in the final.
While the season was a turn around for some of the teams, few sides had to struggle throughout the league stage. As it turned out, Delhi Capitals (DC) was the only new team to make it to the top four with the other three sides being consistent enough to run away with the victories.
Here we bring you the ratings of each team in IPL 2019 according to their performances:
1. Royal Challengers Bangalore – 4/10
The Virat Kohli-led side got off to a very poor start to the IPL 2019 as they went down by seven wickets to the Chennai Super Kings at the Chepauk. Yet again, they were over-dependent on Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers throughout the tournament. The two superstars did not disappoint the fans as they scored 464 and 442 runs respectively in the tournament.
But, they did not get consistent support from other batsmen in the team. Although, there were a few good performances by Parthiv Patel, Moeen Ali and Marcus Stoinis but only in bits and pieces.
There was no quality Indian middle-order batsman and the death bowling suffered massively as the likes of Umesh Yadav, Mohammad Siraj and Tim Southee were too expensive. The team ended with 5 wins and 8 losses in 14 matches and ended up at the eighth position in the points table.
