The evolution of T20 cricket over the last decade has been surprising. From just being classified as a supplement to the longer formats, T20 cricket has undoubtedly become one of the toughest formats.

The fourth edition of the IPL witnessed the revolutionary phase of the fast-growing T20 format. The pacers relied more on the knuckleballs, spinners resorted to bowling the doosras, and the batsman employed the method of reverse sweeps – epitomizing the shift in the approach to the modern-day sport.
