Found a new champion 7 years ago
IPL had got the new champion 7 years back in 2013. It was then that Mumbai Indians won the title for the first time. Then the Chennai team was defeated by 23 runs in the final. However, some 2016 champions Sunrisers also consider Hyderabad as the new champion. We did not put her in this category, as she also won the title of Deccan Chargers under the captaincy of Adam Gilchrist in 2009.
Hyderabad team name and owner changed in 2013
In 2013, the franchise Deccan Chargers was renamed to Sunrisers Hyderabad. The team was then bought by Sun TV Network. The Sun group bought the Hyderabad franchise going through an economic crisis for Rs 425.2 crore. Earlier, BCCI canceled the contract of Deccan Chargers.
