About most wins in IPL by a team
Incepted in 2008 as an eight-team, league-cum-knockout tournament, the Indian Premier League (IPL) has revolutionised world cricket. The cash cow of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), IPL is the richest T20 cricket league and the most-watched around the world too, with the TV viewership for the tournament’s 2020 edition reaching 31.57 million impressions, the highest for any IPL season, according to the Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) India.
The standard of cricket elevates the IPL above every other T20 competition, while the team rivalries (Mumbai Indians v Chennai Super Kings, for example, is called the El Clasico of IPL) add more spice to a tournament that is not short of entertainment value.
