The 2016 edition of the Indian Premier League saw Sunrisers Hyderabad being crowned as the new champions. No one at the start of the tournament would have even guessed that the Hyderabad outfit could go on to win the competition, considering their lack of big-name players in the squad.

Skipper David Warner had bigger plans and marshalled his squad, leading from the front to take Sunrisers to victory, he was helped by a fantastic bowling attack – by far the best attack in the tournament.

This year's IPL saw a number of matches being closely fought, with the best reserved for the play-off stages where all four games went down to the wire.
