The most anticipated, the most watched and loved IPL known as Dream11 IPL 2020, is slated to commence from 19th September,2020 in the UAE. IPL enjoys a massive fan-base across the world and is one of the most successful domestic leagues in the history of world sports.
Dream 11 IPL 2020 is going to be played in 3 bio secure venues in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah.The first match of the season is between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings in the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. In the last 12 editions of the Indian Premier League, Mumbai Indians have earned the tag of the best IPL establishment with four title wins and next to them is CSK, led by MS Dhoni, with three title wins. This makes the first match more interesting and does justice to the hype. Teams that make it to the play offs are also considered as tough competitors and it is always a cutthroat battle.
Here are the 4 teams that are likely to make the playoffs this season:
Chennai Super Kings: They had to deal with delayed practice sessions because 13 of their squad, including 2 players had tested positive. With Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina opting out of the season, CSK is in a tight spot. Before a ball has been bowled, they have lost their pillar in the batting just as their key bowler who conveys reliably in the powerplay. However, the team has its bright spot in the form of MS Dhoni, the captain cool, and Veterans like Shane Watson who knows how to perform under pressure and get the best out of their players. Dhoni has proved time and again that he can ace the role of a captain flawlessly.
Mumbai Indians: An obvious name, especially since they are the four-time champions. Rohit Sharma’s side will be resolved to showcase stellar performances once more. However, this is an even year and Mumbai Indians have made progress just in odd years, with their title wins in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019. This year, if the example rehashes, it will be proved that the jinx is real. On a genuine note, the absence of Lasith Malinga is a big blow, regardless of Bumrah’s essence.
Kolkata Knight Riders: KKR has some real stars on the team. Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Pat Cummins, Kuldeep Yadav, Shubman Gill, Dinesh Karthik, Lockie Ferguson, Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi have power and reasonable batting. In the bowling, their pace bowling arms stockpile is strong. Narine can hold the bowling end up, his wicket-taking ability is a given. Andre, needless to say, is a force of nature.
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Just because, Royal Challengers Bangalore have not won any title, we cannot forget that they have amazing players in their arsenal. Their batting line-up is solid because of the presence of Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers while they have power hitters in Shivam Dube and Moeen Ali. In the bowling, they have spinners in abundance and that may help them massively in the UAE. AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli together have done wonders in the past and it is safe to say that they are going to set new records.
