The 2011 Indian Premier League season, abbreviated as IPL 4 or the IPL 2011, was the fourth season of the Indian Premier League, the top Twenty20 cricket league in India. The tournament was hosted in India and the opening and closing ceremonies were held in M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, the home venue of the reigning champions Chennai Super Kings. The season ran from 8 April to 28 May 2011.[1] This season the number of teams in the league went from eight to ten with the additions of the Pune Warriors India and the Kochi Tuskers Kerala.

The tournament was won by the Chennai Super Kings for the second successive season, defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore by 58 runs in the final in Chennai, with the winning team's Murali Vijay being named Man of the Match. With this win Chennai Super Kings became the only team to have won the IPL on more than one occasion.[2] Despite Bangalore failing to win the title, one of the team's players, Chris Gayle was named as the tournament's best player. He scored 608 runs in twelve innings[3] – the most in the tournament – as well as picking up eight wickets, having joined the team after the start of the season due to an injury to another overseas player, Dirk Nannes.[4] Mumbai Indians' Lasith Malinga set a new record for most wickets taken within an Indian Premier League season, claiming 28 wickets during the campaign,[5] but Mumbai had to settle for third place in the tournament, having lost to Bangalore in the second qualifier. Chennai, Bangalore and Mumbai represented India in the Champions League 2011 tournament in September. The Fly Kingfisher Fair Play Award was again won by the Chennai Super Kings for topping the fair-play table.

Format[edit]

With the introduction of 2 new teams, a new ten-team format was created. This new format consists of 74 matches and was introduced as retaining the previous format would result in 94 matches, significantly greater than the 60 matches from the previous season, where teams compete in a double round-robin tournament. The knockout stage was changed to a playoff format. If a match ends in a tie, a Super Over will be played to determine the winner.

The ten teams are divided into two groups of five. In the group stage, each team plays 14 games: facing the other four teams in their group two times each (one home and one away game), four teams in the other group once, and the remaining team two times. A random draw was used to determine the groups and who plays whom across the groups once and twice.

Each team plays the team in the same row and the same column twice, and all others once. For instance, Pune Warriors will play Chennai Super Kings and the other Group A teams twice but the other teams from Group B (Kolkata Knight Riders, Kochi Tuskers Kerala, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals) only once. Similarly Kochi Tuskers Kerala will play Delhi Daredevils and the other Group B teams twice but all other teams from Group A only once.

Group A Group B
Deccan Chargers Kolkata Knight Riders
Delhi Daredevils Kochi Tuskers Kerala
Kings XI Punjab Royal Challengers Bangalore
Mumbai Indians Rajasthan Royals
Pune Warriors India Chennai Super Kings

Team winning a match will be awarded 2 points. The losing team will not receive any points. In case of a draw or no result, both teams will be awarded 1 point.

A four-game playoff stage following the Page playoff system is held after the group stage.[1] Four games will be played in the playoffs:[1]

  • Qualifier 1: between the teams ranked first and second in the group stage.
  • Eliminator: between the teams ranked third and fourth in the group stage.
  • Qualifier 2: between the loser of the Qualifier 1 and winner of the Eliminator.
  • Final: between the winners of the Qualifiers 1 and 2.

The top three teams from the tournament qualify for the 2011 Champions League Twenty20 while the fourth team enters the qualifying stage of the tournament. Due to the playoff format, the qualifying teams will be the top two teams of the group stage and the winner of the Eliminator in the playoff stage.[6]

Squads[edit]

Each team can have a squad of at most 30 players with a maximum of US$9 million to spend on purchasing players. . Choosing to retain players would subject to a reduction in their salary cap, reducing the amount they may spend on other players. All other players are added to the auction held on 8 and 9 January 2011.[1]

The catchment areas of the eight existing teams were changed to account for the two new teams. Catchment areas are nominated areas to help each side select their local players. Each team must select four players from their area.

A total of 12 players have been retained by all the franchises while the remaining go to the auction list. The retained players – who must have been part of the franchise's registered squads for the 2010 season – were valued at $1.8 million for the first player, $1.3 million for the second, $900,000 for the third and $500,000 for the fourth. Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings have retained the maximum of four players while the Kings XI Punjab, Deccan Chargers and Kolkata Knight Riders released all their players.[10] The RCB franchise owners only retained one player (Virat Kohli), but let go few key players - Rahul Dravid, Dale Steyn, Jack Kallis. These players emerged very consistent subsequently in the years 2012, 2013.

Pune and Kochi are new to the league. The auction for these teams was held at Chennai on 22 March 2010. These two bids, worth a total of Rs 3,235 crore, were more than the Rs 2,853 crore collectively paid for the eight franchises in the first auction, on 24 January 2008.[11]

The Rajasthan Royals, and the Kings XI Punjab were temporarily ejected from the league due to issues with their unreported ownership changes. The teams were reinstated with involvement from the High Court.[12] Their owners were broken into several legal entities when the BCCI required the incorporation of the companies.[13][14] Kochi was also at risk of ejection for the same reasons before BCCI cleared their new ownership pattern for the tournament.[15]

  • Chennai Super Kings won the toss and elected to bat.

In the final held at the capacity-filled [16] M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, the Chennai Super Kings won the toss and elected to bat on a slow pitch.[17] The openers, Murali Vijay and Michael Hussey opened by scoring a partnership of 159 runs. Murali Vijay proceeded to score 95 runs off of 52 balls including four fours and six sixes, for which he was later awarded the 'Man of the Match'. The Chennai score was also supplemented by 22 runs from the captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. A quick loss of wickets towards the end provided some consolation for Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Needing 206 runs to win, Royal Challengers Bangalore lost their opening batsman and Orange Cap holder Chris Gayle early to Ravichandran Ashwin. A frequent loss of wickets meant that Royal Challengers Bangalore were unable to build any partner runsships even though Saurabh Tiwary and Virat Kohli contributed 42 and 37 runs respectively and were subsequently able to finish only with 147 in their 20 overs with the last ball which was a six from Saurabh Tiwary thus making Chennai Super Kings The first team to win more than one cup .[18]

Winning captain Dhoni said that playing in the IPL just after the World Cup was tough and added that the fans were also "emotionally drained" after the India's win at the World Cup.[19] Opposing captain Daniel Vettori, who conceded that they were already on the back foot after letting Chennai score 205, said "Would have been a much better game if we could have put up a bowling performance like yesterday, but it was not to be. I think 200-plus was tough for us; 160-170 would have been chaseable."[20]

Chris Gayle won the Orange Cap for maximum runs in the tournament (608 from 12 matches) while Lasith Malinga who plays for the Mumbai Indians got the Purple Cap for most wickets (28 from 16 matches). Kieron Pollard was awarded for taking most catches in the tournament while Kings XI Punjab batsman Paul Valthaty was awarded the Best Individual Performance in the IPL for his 120 runs against Chennai.[21] The Rising Star of IPL was awarded to Iqbal Abdullah of Kolkata Knight Riders.[citation needed]
