M S Dhoni’s winning hug to Jadeja in the IPL 2023






This year, IPL has also given us a heartwarming picture that ruled the internet for many days, and that picture was Dhoni and Jadeja’s lifting moment after winning the 5th IPL title. In IPL 2023, CSK beat Pandya’s Gujarat Titans by 5 wickets.

It was expected that MS Dhoni would say goodbye to professional cricket after winning the IPL 2023 title for CSK, but the love and respect he received throughout the IPL 2023 season made him come back with high spirits for one more Indian Premier League season in 2024.

Virat Kohli’s broke the record of Sachin Tendulkar in the ODI








In 2023, Virat Kohli had an incredible year. Long-lasting joy will accompany Virat Kohli’s World Cup Semi-Final loss to New Zealand at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. In the process, Kohli broke Sachin Tendulkar’s long-standing record of 49 ODI hundreds with his 50th century. Virat Kohli scored a total of six ODI centuries in the year 2023. His 100 and their win took them to the ODI finals, but unfortunately, they got defeated by the Australian Kangaroos by 6 wickets.

Glenn Maxwell made 200 runs against Afghanistan








Glenn Maxwell, an Australian all-rounder, was the top ODI knocker when he chased down 292 against Afghanistan by himself. Australia was trailing 292 runs at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and was under pressure at 91 for 7. Maxwell’s knock is sure to stick in people’s memories. With 21 fours and 10 sixes, he amassed an undefeated 201 runs on 128 balls. Not only that, but he scored those runs with cramps. From 2012 to 2023, a 35-year-old Australian right-hand arm batsman participated in 138 one-day internationals.

The Trio of Indian Bowlers (Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammad Siraj)








2023 will always be associated with Indian dominance in fast bowling. Leading the charge were Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammad Siraj. Their incredible precision with the ball confounded all opponents. The six-for-21 run against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup Final was but one example of Siraj’s arsenal of skills.

Even though he was sidelined by an injury, Jasprit Bumrah wasted little time in doing his magic with the ball, helping India advance to the CWC 2023 finals. Speaking of Mohammed Shami, he was outstanding in the just-finished World Cup, taking 24 wickets and picking up 7/57 against New Zealand in the semi-final. He also lit up the 2023 IPL.

Entry of women’s cricket in the IPL








The Women’s Premier League was established in March 2023, and it lived up to the hype of being a thrilling match between teams where fans could watch them display their skills. The inaugural champions of the Women’s Indian Premier League were the Harmanpreet-led Mumbai Indians, who defeated the Meg Lanning Delhi Capitals team in the final match of the league.
