The new season of Indian Premier League is all set to begin in a few days and the excitement among the fans is in full swing. Everyone is gearing up to cheer for their favorite team.
For a tournament like the Indian Premier League, it is not easy to predict the winner as the tables can turn around any moment and can change the whole results, just like what happened last year for most of the teams.
The team that kicks the momentum at the right phase of the competition ultimately wins the game. The testimony of this fact is the team Mumbai Indians. We have seen struggling them at the bottom and then bouncing back in many seasons managing to win the title.
However, last year was bad for Mumbai Indians, they disappointed their fans by not being able to perform up to the mark. The fans are very anticipated for them to win this season of IPL. The top batsman and bowler in the team are Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah. Krunal Pandya is also one to watch out for this season, because of the amazing performances he gave last year.
Also, the cherry on top of the cake for Mumbai Indians this time is Yuvraj Singh, it will be very interesting to see if our world cup hero will be able to bounce back and make a solid comeback in the league.
And when we talk about bouncing back, how can we not talk about Chennai Super Kings? The team made a blockbuster comeback last year after a ban of two years and taking the trophy home. Chennai Super Kings is the most consistent team in the IPL history, making into the playoffs every tournament that they have participated in.
The team has the most interesting line-up with top level performers like Shane Watson, Dwayne Bravo, Brendon McCullum, Ambatti Rayudu, Lungi Nagidi, Faf du Plessis alongwith the experience of MS Dhoni and the IPL King, Suresh Raina. The team is all set for another blockbuster season and the yellow army of fans just can’t wait.
Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians are two of the most successful teams, which have always dominated the game. Coming up to their level is Sunrisers Hyderabad now, We all saw how they dominated the playoffs last year and were among the top four throughout the tournament. Rashid Khan, the one man army, is their biggest asset and the one to look out for.
With the decent batsmen line-up, including the fire-power West Indies trio of Sunil Narine, Carlos Braithwaite and Andre Russell, coming up next is Kolkata Knight Riders. This team has always been a surprise package in IPL. The way they went for horses over courses, their strategy for IPL 2019 was quite evident in the auctions. It will be interesting to see if the team will be able to pull off.
Talking about the teams, Kings XI Punjab, and Delhi Capitals. Though they have not laid their hands on the trophy yet, still they have enough fire-power this time in their line-ups to give tough competitions. And we never know the young lads in the team might dominate the game and turn the tables for rest of the teams.
Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals, one having the best superstar line-up with the blockbuster duo of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, and the other one not having as many superstar in the line-up, these two teams cannot be taken lightly in any aspect.
Virat Kohli is in full-form lately , the way he is smashing centuries and breaking records, maybe this is the year for him, and he finally gets his hand on the trophy this year.
All in all, it’s tough to pick one and call them the winners beforehand but going by the history, consistency and momentum, my bet is on Chennai Super Kings!
