Before the month long T20 extravaganza started, there were quite a few teams that were tagged favourites for the title. Since the tournament was being played on Indian soil, the hosts were outright favourites for the title given their brilliant run in the build-up for the tournament. It was surprising that none of the Asian teams made it to the final, thanks to the IPL helping foreign players acclimatise to the vagaries of Indian conditions.

Here we feature 10 of the biggest hits and flops of the tournament.
