Expectations have been building up on IPL 2018, since the end of last IPL itself. Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals were set to return to the circuit after two years of suspension. From then on this question has been making rounds on social media, ‘Who’ll win in IPL 2018?’.

Since all the teams had to release all but 5 players. Auction was going to take place and the whole team was going to be revamped. So no one could guess the strength of teams.

After auction also this question is making rounds in social media.

What I wish to say here is that no one can predict the winers before the tournament commences. In the inagural edition of IPL, Rajasthan Royals were never considered a team having enough potential to win the cup. But they marched towards victory in style. Also you cannot predict whether a team will emerge as winners or not by their performance in the first few matches. In one of the seasons, Mumbai Indians didn’t perform up to the mark in the first few matches. But they emerged the champions of that season.

Let’s analyse the pros and cons of each team.

Chennai Super Kings:

The most popular team of IPL is entering the tournament after a court ordered suspension of 2 years. It still has the largest fanbase in India compared to all the other teams.

At the start of the season, I was looking forward to watching Delhi cuz they had the most exciting team, KKR cuz they had panned the auction out so poorly and CSK, cuz I bleed yellow xD.

As you can see now, Delhi are nowhere in the race for the title(Surprise surprise!! :p ) KKR have done a pretty decent job up-till now and their performance now towards the business end would say if the critics were wrong or right about the squad.

Now, We’ll jump into the question.

Ill try my best not to be biased towards CSK, but they really have defied the odds and have managed to perform well above everyone’s expectations. After the auctions, I have to agree that I was a bit disappointed and looking at all the other squads, I was intimidated and did not expect anything more than a 4th place(at max 3rd position) finish in the leauge. The Age factor and ‘Chennai Senior Kings’ did delude me from the fact that T20 is not the format that demands Strength and Stamina but demands more of mind and ability. The lads have put together an amazing season so far and MSD’s rejuvenation has given me new hopes that CSK might add more silverware to that trophy cabinet. Yes they do have their own backlogs but that has always been the story of CSK, they have never been that team which wins the match on paper and can boss the opposition completely, CSK has always been about close finishes, nail biting encounters and thrillers and so has been the story this year as well xD

The other team that has been pulling off wins from the blue, Sunrisers have had an amazing campaign so far, losing only 2 games and sitting comfortably on top of the table. I did expect David warner’s absence to leave an void in SRH’s batting and as expected, it has. But to see the bowlers stepping up, realizing that the batting department’s limitations is indeed amazing. SRH’s bowling unit can do a better job in defending earth than the Avengers in Infinity War xP. Everyone of them from Bhuvi to Basil Thampi have stepped up and put a performance they can be proud of this season. Clearly captain Kane is making his presence felt and is challenging Warner’s place as a captain for the following seasons.
