Which team has the best winning percentage in the IPL?

August 17, 2021

Cricket fans have much to rejoice as IPL is finally coming back again for this year, after being postponed midway in May. The board has already made the announcement about restarting the tournament from September 19, with a clash between the two top names: Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. The matches will take place in Dubai this time, and the teams are gearing up to battle it out on the pitch one more time.  

And if you are a fan who was truly sad at the sudden postponement of IPL, you have all the reasons to rejoice now. But before sitting in front of the TV on that day, let’s take a look at the winning percentage of IPL teams

  1. Punjab Kings 

The team from Punjab has joined the league under a new name and a better squad. It is presently under the leadership of K.L. Rahul, and the batting prowess of the team has shown remarkable improvement. With names like Nicholas Pooran, Chris Gayle, and Dawid Malan by their side, they have a good shot this time. The bowling attack by Mohammed Shami is also something to look forward to.  

The current winning percentage for the team is 32 percent, which might soon catch up to the other higher winning percentage of IPL teams. 

  1. Delhi Capitals 

Three times champion Chennai Super Kings were hammered away by Delhi Capitals in the opening match. Their team is stocked this time with strong hitters such as Ajinkya Rahane, Prithvi Shaw, Steve Smith, and Shikhar Dhawan, and bowlers like Kagiso Rabada and Umesh Yadav.

The team has not only been giving explosive performances but also has a winning percentage of 40 percent. 

  1. Kolkata Knight Riders 

The Knights started off well by defeating the formidable Sunrisers Hyderabad but soon faced a crushing defeat by Mumbai Indians. The defeat did not look good on the points’ board, but the Knights still have a winning percentage of 48 percent.  

After all, they have reached the playoffs at least six times and have two winning titles to their name. Having experienced names like Harbhajan Singh and Andre Russell in the squad also helps their chances this time. 

  1. Royal Challengers Bangalore 

They might not have the IPL team best winning percentage, but they are one of the best players of the IPL. This time, they have made a commendable start again by defeating the defending champion, Reliance-owned Mumbai Indians. 

In spite of having names, such as Yuzvendra Chahal, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers, and Virat Kohli, the coveted IPL trophy has always got away from the Challengers. However, if their performance against Mumbai Indians is anything to go by, they are going to have an explosive turn this year. The present winning percentage of Royal Challengers Bangalore is 49 percent. 

  1. Chennai Super Kings 

Chennai Super Kings are the three-time winners that have been on the winning side for 106 out of 179 games. The opening of the team in this year’s IPL was not that commendable as they were defeated by Delhi Capitals.  

Regardless of that defeat, under the leadership of MS Dhoni, the team has all the chances to win the title this time around. Their current winning percentage stands at 52 percent. 

  1. Mumbai Indians

Another likely contender for the trophy is the one with the best winning percentage of any IPL team: Mumbai Indians. They have emerged as the champions five times already, and this year might be adding one more cap to that feather. They have a commendable winning percentage of 57 percent.  

They have players like Suryakumar Yadav, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, and Hardik Pandya bringing their A-game to every match. In the fifth match of this year, they defeated Kolkata Knight Riders.
