IPL 2019 witnessed plenty of great performances, both, with the bat and ball. Alzarri Joseph’s best bowling performance in the tournament's history, Andre Russell’s incredible strike rate, David Warner’s 600-plus runs in the season, two South Africans topping the wicket charts, RCB’s poor bowling unit, Kings XI’s impressive top-order batting – there were many records set and broken in the season this time around.

We look at some of the standout numbers which defined the 12th season of the IPL.
