Only 20 days are left for the new season of IPL to begin. Along with the preparations, speculations are also being made as to who will become the new IPL champion.
Although the situation will be clear only after the tournament starts but the analysis of cricket pundits has started from now. The IPL is being held at three international stadiums of the UAE this time.
The teams have to stay in the bio secured bubble and preparations are also going on. The IPL will be there but Indian people will be quite happy to see it on TV.
There are some IPL teams that have special performances. This happens every year in the IPL. The Chennai Super Kings team has traveled to the play-offs every time in the IPL. Apart from this, this team has traveled to the finals 8 times.
In this way, the performance of Mumbai Indians is also going on.Mumbai Indians is the only team to win the title four times. This time, which teams will go to the play-offs in IPL and which teams will have to go out, it will be worth noting. This article mentions three teams that will probably be eliminated before the play-offs.
3 teams in IPL will not play in play-offs
1) Kolkata Knight Riders
This team had won the title twice under the captaincy of Gautam Gambhir. After that, the performance of the team has gradually deteriorated. Fans like Chris Lynn have also been dropped.
Some new faces are in this team but they cannot be trusted so soon. The team rests on Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik. In such a situation, we can say that KKR will not travel till the play-offs this time.
2) Rajasthan Royals
The bowling of this team is the biggest weakness. Because of this, this time the team will probably not go to the play-offs. Players like Steve Smith, Ben Stokes and Jose Butler are in the team but there is no point in bowling.
All-rounder like Krishnappa Gautam has also been released from the team, so the chances of play-offs are greatly reduced.
3) Royal Challengers Bangalore
RCB have a trio of great batsmen in the form of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Aaron Finch, but the team seems inexperienced in bowling. Players like Mohammad Siraj, Navdeep Saini Pawan Negi etc.
will not have much impact on the opposition teams. Although Yuzvendra Chahal is experienced but traveling to the play-offs on the bowler alone is not an easy task.
