IPL – Team Rankings

As promised yesterday, we are back again with the comparative performance of DC and KKR. However today our analysis will not be restricting to mere two team comparison. Instead we have come up with a broader platform where we have ranked all the teams based on their batting and bowling performance.

Batting ranks are based on the runs scored per innings and the strike rate of the entire team composition.

Want to know where your favorite team stands in terms of batting performance?


Kolkata Knight Riders as expected tops the list followed by Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils. Mumbai Indians has occupied the last position in the list. Not much surprises there, considering the fact that most of the stalwarts in cricket there played just average.


Rajasthan Royals has topped the bowling rank list. The team has got some amazing bowlers like Cooper and Chandlia and their clinical performances has been instrumental in a lot of their wins. KKR and CSK follows next. The 5th bowler crisis which hit Royal Challengers and led the team to play some very dismal matches has led them to occupy the last position in the list. This ranking is based on the team’s efficiency rate and their average wickets per innings.

Deccan Chargers has occupied the 8th rank in both batting and bowling performances.

In terms of fielding performances, RCB tops the list followed by the Royal Challengers and Kings XI. RCB has received tremendous support from its off beat fielders like Gayle and Dilshan.

Our analysts have also done a bit of researching to award bonus points to those teams and players who have exhibited some stunning performances during some very demanding situations which led their team to glory.

Kings XI Punjab tops the list here with the some over the top performances by Harmeet Singh , Gurkeerat Singh, Piyush Chawla and D B Das  during very critical situations. Performances exhibited by Pollard and Rohit Sharma of MI and Bravo and Albie Morkel of CSK in such high tense situations are also note worthy.

Our analysis has been based on all matches played till play offs.
