Success does not only depend on what happens on the field but also the atmosphere inside the franchise plays a vital role to be successful. Let’s look at a list of 5 successful teams in IPL so far.
#5) Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)
Replacing the Deccan Chargers in 2012, Sunrisers Hyderabad has been a successful and confident team and they occupy the fifth spot in this list. Although they have won the title only once in the year 2016 against the Royal Challengers Bangalore they have seen as a great threat over the years.
Led by the Australian pocket dynamo David Warner they play an aggressive form of cricket and have got the best bowling attack all these years.
#4) Rajasthan Royals (RR)
Rajasthan Royals is the fourth most successful team in the IPL so far. Apart from winning the title in the opening edition of the IPL, they have not seen as a great threat over the years.
They are not quite successful in the IPL because they rely heavily on foreign players. Apart from winning the title in the year 2008, they have also played the finals in the year 2015 and 2018.
#3) Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
Kolkata Knight Riders is the 3rd best team in the history of IPL and is successful in lifting the title two times. They have a record of most consecutive wins by winning 14 games continuously.

This team is not only about having only legendary and experienced players, they have also given opportunities to young talents in their team to dwell in the shadows of great players.
