2016 Winners


2016 was a monumental season for the team. They defeated the strong Virat Kohli led Royal Challengers Bangalore in the finals and were crowned the winners. In the entire season, the team won 11 games. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the leading wicket-taker of the season who won the purple cap.

In the next season, Bhuvneshwar Kumar repeated his heroics with the ball, winning the purple cap. Captain David Warner too bagged the orange cap. But, the team lost to Kolkata Knight Riders in the eliminator.

Disappointed 2018 Finals


In 2018, David Warner was banned to play, hence, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson was made the captain. He led with the bat, scoring a massive 735 runs in the season and winning the orange cap. The team made it to the finals but ultimately lost to Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings who were making a comeback after a 2-year ban.
