3 IPL Team Who Can Win IPL 2019
Earlier there were speculations that IPL 2019 will be played outside India considering the Lok Sabha election in India at that time but BCCI has finalized that the complete IPL 2019 will take place in India only. And now IPL 2019 team squads and players list has been declared.
IPL is the biggest T20 tournament with big names from every major cricket playing country participating every year. The endless excitement and spine chilling cricket experience that it offers, keep the fans tied to their seats or TVs throughout.
And this is not it. There is a giant waiting for us after the IPL 2019 in form of ICC World Cup 2019 which is set to held this May in England. That doesn’t change the fact and hype that IPL 2019 is coming.
IPL is a tournament like the others and very different at the same time. All 8 teams will be competing for a span of 8 weeks in conquest of the IPL 2019 trophy but only the finest players plays in the IPL and the viewership is just insane as it can be compared to those mega football events.
In this article, we take a exclusive look at the 3 teams that can probably win IPL 2019 and lift the trophy.
Chennai Super Kings
Any team that makes a comeback after 2 year and is more dominating and dangerous, to the levels that they won the title, deserves a spot here. We are talking about the yellow army of Chennai Super Kings. Only team other than Mumbai to have won 3 IPL titles. They are the defending champions and our bet is there are maximum chances that they defend it this year.
Led by the one and only “Captain Cool” – MS Dhoni, Chennai is a squad full of match winners who stay hungry for more. They know pretty well about their capability and never settle for less.
Their core is their heart, probably the best core ever seen in T20 cricket with the likes of MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo, Shane Watson, Harbhajan Singh, Faf Du Plessis, and Ravindra Jadeja. When you have such stable quality in your core, what would you need other big names for? That’s why they didn’t go for any big name this year in the auctions. Although, they still signed Mohit Sharma back for Rs. 5 Crore.
Everyone would agree with us that this squad is super awesome. The perfect lineup with evenly awesome bench strength. The team of Chennai is going to be very hard to beat. Meanwhile, CSK has the chance to become the first team to win back to back titles.
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Mumbai Indians is the most successful IPL team ever. They have great ownership, great players throughout their journey, great administration and coaching staff along with 3 titles to their name. They are easily one of the best teams in IPL history if not the best and there are very good chances that they win IPL 2019.
Last year they were first amongst the prime contenders to win but Chennai stole all the glory. But they have plans this year and have started making amends as we saw during IPL 2019 auctions. They have made a lethal squad with the retained players and the players they bought at the auctions.
With Rohit “Hitman” Sharma leading the blue army and the recent inclusion of Yuvraj Singh, Mumbai is back into business. Lasith Malinga is also back into the blue squad and they made a smart move trading Quinton de Kock from RCB.
Not to forget that their core squad is already pretty formidable with Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Keiron Pollard, Jasprit Bumrah, Evin Lewis who have proved to be match winners and have done it many times before.
They have a perfect balance of experienced and young talented players that can change the phase of match at any time. Mumbai has a good chance to win their 4th title this year.
When David Warner was banned from playing Sunrisers Hyderabad was being considered as the underdogs but they emerged as the finest team of the IPL last year. Kane Williamson led SRH went all the way to the finals, too bad they didn’t win but gave us a glimpse of what to come and expect.
And now that David Warner is back, their strength doubles and they become the prime contenders for the IPL 2019 title this year.
Their core is different but talented for sure. With Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan and Shakib Al Hasan in their squad, they are a mixed bunch and unpredictable and that makes them very dangerous.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad officials made some good decisions in the auctions as well. They bought Martin Guptill (Rs 1 Crore), Wriddhiman Saha ( Rs 1.2 Crore) and Jonny Bairstow (Rs 2.2 Crore) in the IPL 2019 auctions.
They have legends such as VVS Laxman, Muttiah Muralitharanand many others included in the coaching staff.
On a given day, they can defeat CSK and MI as well at their own turfs. Mark the words, Sunrisers Hyderabad is going to do big in the IPL 2019 and is going to be very hard to defeat. If everything goes right for them, they may even win the IPL title for 2nd time in history.
These teams are our choices for the probable IPL 2019 winners. There is absolutely no guarantee as of who will win the IPL 2019 as of now.
