After 46 days of exciting T20 games among 8 teams, finally the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 edition has come to an end. After the league phases and playoffs, the Rising Pune Supergiant and Mumbai Indians are going to lock horns on May 21 in the season finale.

And now, a day ahead of the finale, let’s have a look that who remained the top performers in this season in all the different departments.
