Since its start in 2008, the IPL 2023 has changed the way cricket is played. Every season, the players get better at hitting, bowling, and defending. This has led to the creation of a lot of awards to recognize both individual and team achievements.
At the same time, it is just as important to make sure that the games are played fairly and honestly. At the end of the competition, the “Fair Play Award” goes to the team that played the best. Teams get points for following the rules and showing respect to their teammates, opponents, and, most importantly, the match judges.
There are three things that determine how the points are given out. Two points for a team mean that they are doing well, while one or zero points mean that they are doing average or bad. Every match is worth 10 points. Four of them are given to teams based on how well all three judges think they kept the spirit of the game.
Who Has Won the Fair Play Award Maximum Times in the IPL?
The team that has won the most Fair Play Awards is the Chennai Super Kings, which has won the IPL four times and is led by the legendary Mahendra Singh Dhoni. CSK has won this award a record six times in the last 14 seasons, in 2008, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
This award has been won twice by the Rajasthan Royals (in 2012 and 2021), Sunrisers Hyderabad (in 2016 and 2019), and Mumbai Indians (in 2018 and 2020). In 2009 and 2017, the Punjab Kings and the Gujarat Lions, which is no longer a team, won.
When it comes to the IPL 2022 Fair Play Award table, the Chennai Super Kings are in first place with 140 points from 14 games. The Gujarat Titans, Punjab Kings, and Rajasthan Royals, who are all new teams, also have the same number of points.

What is Fair Play Award in IPL?
At the end of each IPL season, the BCCI gives each team the Fair Play Award based on how they behaved on the field. The factors include how well the team treated the other team, the cricket rules, the umpires, and, most importantly, how well the team stuck to the “spirit of the game” in the umpires’ eyes.
At the end of each match, the teams that played will get points based on these, and the team with the most points at the end of the season will get the Fair Play Award.
