Over the past 12 years, different teams have shown their high-level performances. But, at last, only the best triumphs. But, the beauty of IPL is that anything can happen. The 12 trophies of IPL have been shared by mainly three teams; Mumbai Indians have won four, three by Chennai super kings and two by Kolkata Knight Riders. So, who will win IPL2020? You can’t guess. But, the stats show which team is the ultimate champion of IPL. Let’s discuss the best team of the IPL, Mumbai Indians.

Mumbai Indians are owned by Mukesh Ambani and managed by his wife, Nita Ambani. In the inaugural IPL season, MI was the costliest team and spent Rs.111.9 million. They got Sachin Tendulkar as the Iconic player in their first season. In the Early IPL seasons, they weren’t as impressive due to a weak bowling line-up and over-dependency on few players.
The starting two seasons, they perform just okay and were out from the league stage itself. In 2010 due to efforts of Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, and Saurabh Tiwary, MI became the table-toppers but was defeated in the final by Chennai Super Kings. 2011 saw a team change that strengthened the batting line-up, MI qualified for the play-offs.

They won the 2013 IPL title in the wake of vanquishing Chennai Super Kings. They at that point proceeded to win the Champions League. This season changes the administration of Mumbai Indians, and Rohit became the lasting commander.
IN 2015, they won their 2nd IPL title. The opening fireworks of Lendl Simmons and Dwayne Smith gave the Mumbai Indians an upper hand in batting. They defeated Chennai Super Kings in the final.
