The Indian Premier League (IPL) has revolutionized the game of cricket since its establishment in 2008, with the standard of batting, bowling, and fielding increasing with each season. This has led to the creation of numerous awards to recognize individual and collective excellence.
In addition to celebrating outstanding performances, the IPL places significant emphasis on ensuring fair and honest conduct during matches. The “Fair Play Award” is given to the team that demonstrates the highest level of respect towards their fellow players, opponents, and match officials throughout the tournament.
The “Fair Play Award” is awarded based on three criteria, with teams receiving two points for good performance, one point for average performance, and zero points for poor performance. Each team can earn up to 10 points per match, with four points awarded based on how well they maintain the spirit of the game as assessed by the three umpires.
