The 2012 Indian Premier League season, abbreviated as IPL 5 or the IPL 2012 or the DLF IPL 2012 (owing to title sponsorship reasons), was the fifth season of the Indian Premier League, initiated by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)[3] in 2007 with the first season played in 2008. The tournament began on 4 April and ended on 27 May 2012.[4] Kolkata Knight Riders were the winning team, beating defending champions Chennai Super Kings by five wickets in the final.[5] This season the number of teams in the league went from ten to nine with the termination of Kochi Tuskers Kerala.[6]

Despite a slow start, IPL 5 earned a higher cumulative viewership than any previous edition of the IPL.[7] The cumulative reach for 74 IPL 5 matches was recorded at 163 million against 162 million for 73 matches in IPL 4, and the final match had a higher reach than any previous final.[7]The IPL 2012 edition was the most competitive season of which produced many nail biting finishes. In the 2012 season, there were 19 matches which produced results in the last over, and a couple of them produced results in the last ball. There were also 6 matches in which team won by a margin of less than 10 runs.[8][9] Near the end of the season, the season faced various hurdles including a spot fixing case, which allegedly included 5 players caught on a sting operation carried on by a local news channel.[10]

The top four teams of the tournament (Kolkata Knight Riders, Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Daredevils and Mumbai Indians) represented India in the 2012 Champions League Twenty20. The Fair Play Award was won by Rajasthan Royals, while Kings XI Punjab batsman Mandeep Singh was named the tournament's "Rising Star" and Kolkata Knight Riders bowler Sunil Narine was Player of the Season.[11]

Termination of Kochi[edit]

The IPL Committee terminated the Kochi Tuskers Kerala franchise after it breached the BCCI's terms of conditions. Under the terms of the agreement, each franchise has to submit a bank guarantee every year that covers the fee payable to the BCCI. The team, founded in 2010, was bought for INR1,550 crore and the consortium has to pay a bank guarantee of INR1.56 billion every year until 2020.[12] Despite this, the Tuskers' former players participated in this season's competition after being included in the players auction on 4 February 2012.

On 13 January, the BCCI asked the international players of Kochi Tuskers Kerala to register individual court cases against the owners of the Kochi IPL team with the BCCI included as a party to each case.[13]

The final between the defending two-time champions Chennai Super Kings and the first-time finalists Kolkata Knight Riders was held at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on 27 May 2012. While the Super Kings retained their team from the Qualifier, a hamstring injury to Knight Riders medium-pace bowler Lakshmipathy Balaji resulted the inclusion of Australian Brett Lee and this inclusion of another foreign player required the Knight Riders to leave out their former captain and wicket-keeper batsman Brendon McCullum of New Zealand to maintain the cap of 4 foreign players. Wicket-keeper batsman Manvinder Bisla was brought in to replace Brendon McCullum.[28]

After Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat first, openers Murali Vijay and Mike Hussey put on an opening partnership of 87 until Vijay was dismissed for 42 (from 32 balls) in the 11th over. Mike Hussey was joined by IPL's leading run scorer Suresh Raina and they scored at a brisk rate to reach 160 when Hussey was dismissed in the eighteenth over for 54 (from 43 balls). Suresh Raina who had scored an imposing 73 (from 38 balls) with five sixes was dismissed off the last ball as Chennai reached a formidable total of 190.[29] In reply, the Knight Riders lost their captain Gautam Gambhir cheaply for 2 in the first over. However, they recovered as Manvinder Bisla (89 from 48 balls) and Jacques Kallis (69 from 49 balls) added 136 for the second wicket. Soon after Bisla's dismissal in the 15th over, the Knight Riders lost wickets at regular intervals and after Kallis was caught out by Ravindra Jadeja off the bowling of Ben Hilfenhaus at 18.5 overs, the Knight Riders required 16 runs from the last 7 balls. Shakib Al Hasan appeared to have been caught by Murali Vijay off the very next delivery from Hilfenhaus but it happened to be a no-ball and amid the celebrations, Shakib Al Hasan had completed two runs and retained the strike and hit a four the very next ball. Needing 9 runs to win from the last over, Manoj Tiwary hit consecutive fours to secure victory for the Knight Riders.[30] Manvinder Bisla was declared Man of the Match for his 89 from 48 balls which included five sixes and eight fours.

Reception and controversies[edit]

Initial viewership[edit]

The first matches of the season had recorded an average Television Viewership Rating (TVR) of 3.76, 18.7% less than the previous season.[37] The viewership was also reportedly low for the opening ceremony with a rating of 1.3 TVR.[38] The decline was attributed to the number of matches being played, as the count stands at 76 among 9 teams.[39] The rating continued to fall as the cumulative number of people who tuned in to watch the first 16 games also declined from 127.40 million in 2011 to 122.44 million.

However, despite this slow start, IPL 5 garnered a higher cumulative viewership than any previous edition of the IPL.[7] The cumulative reach for 74 IPL 5 matches was recorded at 163 million against 162 million for 73 matches in IPL 4, and the final match had a higher reach than any previous final.[7]

Spot fixing[edit]

On 14 May 2012, an Indian news channel India TV aired a sting operation that accused five players involved in spot fixing. Reacting to the news, Chief manager of Indian Premier League Rajiv Shukla immediately suspended all five:[10] Mohnish Mishra, Shalabh Srivastava, TP Sudhindra, Amit Yadav, and Abhinav Bali (none of whom had played international cricket).[40] However, the report went on to claim that none of the cricketers were found guilty. On the reliability of the report, Rajat Sharma, the editor-in-chief of news channel India TV quoted that the channel had no doubts about the authenticity of the sting operation and prepared to go to court.[41]

Mohnish Mishra who was part of Pune Warriors India team for the season, admitted to have said that franchises pay black money, in a sting operation. Mishra was caught on tape saying that franchisees paid them black money and that he had received INR15 million (US$250,000) from the later, among which INR12 million (US$200,000)[42] was black money.[43][44] He was also suspended from his team.[45]
