IPL 2023 Winning Prediction: The coming edition of the IPL is expected to be highly exciting, with the new defending champions, the Gujarat Titans, coming in with the hope of retaining their title. The champions of the first edition of the IPL might have upset their fans last year with their not-so-promising cricket in the finals, but they will be looking forward to this year’s auction to add some more power to their side and may be eyeing the cup this year.
With IPL favorites like CSK, MI, and KKR having a nightmare edition last season, they would surely be looking forward to this year’s tournament to fancy their chances at the cup. MI has maintained faith in their up-and-coming youngsters, whereas CSK continues to rely on an experienced group of players. Teams like KKR have been the most active in terms of trades, while the Sunrisers and Punjab Kings have made some difficult decisions for the betterment of the team.
With every franchise prepared for the upcoming IPL season, let’s take a look at the three teams with the best chances of winning the cup.
3. Lucknow Super Giants (LSG)
KL Rahul and his boys, who had a remarkable debut season last year, will be looking to have the last laugh this year. The Giants can be said to have the most promising batting lineup in the tournament, with all the balance that is required for this format of the game.
2. Gujarat Titans
Titans who were not the most hyped or anticipated tournament participants went on to win it thanks to their unwavering effort and dedication to the game. They might look like the most fragile squad on team sheets, but they are the most fierce opposition on the field.
Without a doubt, a capable man Pandya exemplified excellent leadership, dealing with all difficult situations with a smile and delivering with both bat and ball whenever his team needed him to.
With the new “captain crazy” on the field, the Titans will undoubtedly be looking to defend their title this season, and they are even expected to do so.
1. Rajasthan Royals
The Royals’ batting power was nearly indomitable last year, with Buttler leading from the front and being well supported by skipper Samson, young Jaiswal, and Padikkal, and finishing with some big hits from Hetmyer. Though they had such a convincing batting order, the Royals failed to score quick runs down the order and even struggled to find a fifth bowler, which led to their loss in last year’s finals.
With the world cup-winning English captain arriving with boosted confidence and the Royals captain having missed an opportunity in the Indian world cup squad despite good performances in recent games, both would be in the hunt to show the world what they are capable of. With RR having some chances in the auction to pick a hitter down the order, RR would inevitably be the favorites in this year’s IPL.
