What is the IPL Format?
Eight teams compete in the IPL, each representing a different Indian city. The 2020 competition sees the Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Capitals, Kings XI Punjab, Kolkata Knight Riders, Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrises Hyderabad swinging it out against each other. Each team will play each other twice (home and away) in a league format, before the top four teams enter the play-offs. The top two teams at the end of the league phase play each other one in one qualifier, and the third placed teams plays the fourth placed in another qualifier. The winner of the first qualifier automatically qualifies for the final. Then the loser of the first qualifier then plays the winner of the second qualifier in the Eliminator round. The winner of this match qualifies for the final.
The current IPL champions are the Mumbai Indians, who defeated the Chennai Super Kings by one run in the spectacular 2019 final. Mumbai are the most successful team in IPL history, having claimed the title four times.
IPL 2020 Auction
World No.1 Test match bowler Pat Cummins was the number one purchase at the 2020 IPL Auction, bought by the Kolkata Knight Riders for Rs155 million. Cummins’ fellow Australian Glenn Maxwell was picked up by the Kings XI Punjab, with the franchise splashing Rs107.5million on the 20-over all-rounder dangerman. Other top-line purchases West Indian paceman Sheldon Cottrel, and World Cup-winning England captain, Eoin Morgan.
High-profile Indian signings included Jaydev Unadkat and Varun Charkravarthy, who were sold to Rajasthan and Kolkata for the relatively low prices of Rs30million and Rs40million, after fetching the biggest bids at the previous auction. Under-19 World Cup team captain Priyam Garg joined Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Who are Favourites for the 2020 IPL?
But don’t be fooled into thinking the auctioned players are the only big names in IPL 2020. Hyderabad not only retained Warner and signed Priyam Garg, they also kept New Zealand talisman Kane Williamson and England’s Johnny Bairstow on their books. Meanwhile, MS Dhoni stayed loyal to the Chennai Super Kings, as did Faf du Plessis and Mitchell Santner. And even if the Dehli Capitals didn’t add a host of overseas superstars to their squad, the likes of Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Plant and Amit Mishra are capable of beating anyone.
But of course, if any of these teams are to triumph, they must steal the IPL crown from the formidable Mumbai Indians – whose fearsome line-up features the likes of Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah and Quinton de Kock.
