IPL: Previous Winners

The 2024 Indian Premier League season is the 17th edition of the world's biggest Twenty20 competition and to date seven franchises have lifted the trophy.

Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings are the dominant forces in the IPL, claiming five titles each, and they head the betting for 2024.

Mumbai are 5/1 to win the IPL this season with Chennai 5/1 and Gujarat Titans, who triumphed in their maiden campaign in 2022, 6/1.

The 2024 season starts on Friday 22nd March and we are looking back at the IPL's previous winners.

Chennai Super Kings (2010, 2011, 2018, 2021, 2023)

Chennai Super Kings have a phenomenal record in the IPL, winning the title on five occasions and finishing as runners-up five times.

They lost the inaugural final to Rajasthan Royals in 2008, but swiftly established themselves as the team to beat, winning back-to-back titles in 2010 and 2011.

The Super Kings were runners-up in three of the next four seasons, before reclaiming the trophy in 2018 when Australia opener Shane Watson's unbeaten 117 powered them to an eight-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Chennai continue to set the standard, emerging victorious in two of the last three IPL seasons. 

South Africa veteran Faf du Plessis was player of the match for his 86 in the 2021 final against Kolkata Knight Riders, before the Super Kings chased down 171 in 15 overs to win a rain-affected showdown with Gujarat Titans in 2023. 

Mumbai Indians (2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, 2020)

Chennai legend MS Dhoni, now 42 years of age, is set to captain the Super Kings again in 2024, but Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma has been replaced by Hardik Pandya.

Rohit led the Indians to five IPL titles, a record he shares with Dhoni, and his first triumph came in 2013 when he took over as captain from Ricky Ponting during the season.

Kieron Pollard's unbeaten 60 off 32 balls proved decisive in a low-scoring final against Chennai and Mumbai beat the Super Kings by 41 runs in the 2015 final, in which Rohit smashed a 25-ball half-century. 

Their third title was far less comfortable as they beat Rising Pune Supergiant by one run in a thrilling 2017 final in Hyderabad then, incredibly, repeated the feat in 2019 when brilliant death bowling from Jasprit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga sealed a one-run victory over Chennai.

Mumbai retained their crown in 2020 by defeating Delhi Capitals in Dubai and 2024 captain Hardik will be aiming to kickstart a new era of dominance for the franchise.

Kolkata Knight Riders (2012, 2014)

Kolkata Knight Riders are the only team other than Mumbai and Chennai to win multiple IPL titles.

They were victorious in 2012 when a second-wicket stand of 136 between Manvinder Bisla and Jacques Kallis helped them chase down 191 against Chennai, then again in 2014.

India opener Gautam Gambhir captained the Knight Riders in both title-winning campaigns and they nailed another excellent run-chase in the 2014 final after Wriddhiman Saha's 115 not out had taken Kings XI Punjab to a total of 199-4.

KKR's Robin Uthappa was the leading runscorer in the 2014 IPL, while West Indies spinner Sunil Narine was also outstanding for the champions, claiming 21 wickets with an economy rate of 6.35. 

Rajasthan Royals (2008)

A brilliant all-round display from Yusuf Pathan helped Rajasthan Royals land the title in the first season of the IPL in 2008.

Pathan took 3-22 against Chennai before top-scoring with 56 off 39 balls as Shane Warne's Royals clinched a tense three-wicket win off the final ball of their 20th over.

Warne's men were not among the pre-season favourites, but they won 11 of their 14 league matches and were worthy champions, with all-rounder Watson winning the player-of-the-tournament award and paceman Sohail Tanvir topping the wicket-taking chart. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad (2016)

Sunrisers Hyderabad have finished eighth, eighth and 10th in the last three IPL seasons, but they were a force to be reckoned with in 2016.

David Warner's 38-ball 69 helped them set Royal Challengers Bangalore a target of 209 in the final and the Sunrisers' top-class bowling attack held their nerve to seal an eight-run win despite an opening stand of 114 between Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle.

Gujarat Titans (2022)

The 2022 IPL season featured two new franchises, Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants, and Hardik Pandya's Titans enjoyed a superb debut campaign.

After finishing top of the league table, they beat Rajasthan by seven wickets in the play-off Qualifier and were too good for the Royals again in the final.

Skipper Hardik (3-18) and spinner Rashid Khan (1-18) restricted Rajasthan to 130-9 in front of more than 100,000 spectators in Ahmedabad and David Miller's unbeaten 32 took the Titans home with 11 balls to spare.

Deccan Chargers (2009)

Deccan Chargers were involved in the first five seasons of the IPL and they became the second winners of the title in 2009, when the tournament was held in South Africa.

Australia great Adam Gilchrist, the tournament's MVP, blasted 85 off 35 balls in the semi-final victory over Delhi Daredevils, before the Chargers edged out Bangalore by six runs in the final.

The Deccan squad included big hitters Herschelle Gibbs and Andrew Symonds, leading wicket-taker RP Singh and a young Rohit, who went on to win another five IPL titles with Mumbai.
