The Indian Premier Twenty20 Tournament showcases some of the best Indian Cricket talent on a world stage. The lightning speed of SAP HANA empowers us to swiftly build visualizations of historical T20 data in SAP Lumira. With a few simple clicks we can create a stunning visualization of the runs scored by Indian players for each of the nine teams in the 2013 season.

Mumbai led the league with the most runs scored by Indian nationals. The 1,600 runs scored by Indians were instrumental in guiding the “Duniya Hila Denge Hum” (“we will rock the world”) club to their first Championship trophy. Chennai, the side Mumbia defeated in the Championship match, were just six runs shy of the top mark. Meanwhile, the Indian nationals on the New Dehli side only scored 1,193 runs throughout the tournament.

SAP Lumira offers multiple options for Geographic visualizations. Check out the number runs scored by Indians per team depicted over a map of India.

Chennai, Juniper, Kolkata, and Mumbai all had dynamic duos of Indian batsmen last season. The 1,048 runs scored by Mumbai’s Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik topped the 1,009 combined runs scored by Chennai’s Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni. Mumbai’s powerful pair of batsmen were yet another reason why Mumbai celebrated in front of a packed house at the Eden Garden in Kolkata to end the tournament.

Which Indian batsmen will make a splash on the pitch this season?
