The IPL 2020 chapter has finally closed. Memories were abundant in this year’s Indian Premier League and Women’s T20 Challenge.
From the diving efforts of Trinidad’s Nicholas Pooran and Thai’s Natthakan Chantam to Tewatia’s incredulous display and Mandhana’s stylish gameplay, we have had it all. To spice it up, there was also an incredible weekend of Super Overs and close finishes.
This IPL was full of ebbs and flows, highs and lows. It even taught us numerous life lessons.
But, how did it all end? An anti-climax, I would say.
Last time we checked in, the points table had turned upside down. Over the last weekend, every team except for CSK were still in the running.
Ultimately, net run rate came into play with SRH and RCB edging out KKR and KXIP to make it in the Top 4. The Playoffs ended up being one sided and once again, Mumbai Indians lifted the trophy, who were a class apart.
The Women’s T20 Challenge showcased women’s talent but once again, still no women’s IPL?
