3 teams who are prime contenders to win IPL 2019
IPL 2019 is going to kick off in a couple of months. The hosting Country isn't decided yet due to the 'Indian General Elections' that are going to be held from March to April 2019. There is a strong possibility that the IPL could be held ' The United Arab Emirates' or 'South Africa'. These are countries that have previously hosted the IPL.
BCCI is still waiting to release the schedule for IPL 2019. They are trying to make sure they choose the location and schedule after analyzing all the aspects that could hinder its process going forward. If they decide to host it in India, they have to organize it in such a way that it does not clash with the election dates.
Fans can't wait to watch this season as there are going to be a lot of superstars playing the tournament together like always. It's a tournament that provides real entertainment for the fans from all over the world.
Although this season's IPL is going to get a little less attention, as the hype gets built around the 'World Cup' which is going to be held in England after the IPL finishes.
It's going to be a crazy tournament with the eight teams trying to win the IPL trophy. We look ahead and analyze three teams that are favourites to win the trophy this season.
#1 Mumbai Indians
Mumbai Indians will look to win the IPL crown for a record fourth time this season. They have already won the trophy in 2013, 2015 and 2017 and are one of the most successful franchises in the tournament.
They are again going to be one of the favourites to win the trophy as they have assembled a great squad with a mix of retained players and the players they bought in the IPL Auction last month.
Led by Rohit Sharma, they look like covered in every position. They traded Quinton de Kock from RCB before the IPL auction last month while they bought some high profile players like Yuvraj Singh and Lasith Malinga in the IPL auction.
They have added these players with some more names to an already impressive squad that consists of Rohit Sharma, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Kieron Pollard and many other quality players.
These players have the experience of winning the trophy together as they have shown that in previous years and it wouldn't be a surprise to see them lift the trophy again by the end of the season.
