Everything you need to kow about the 13h edition of the Indian Premier League, starting from 15 April 2020 - from team previews, squads and latest news to betting tips & odds. Find out who will win IPL 2020 today predictions.
IPL betting odds tell their own story in terms of who the most likely winner of the 2020 edition of the IPL is. Unsurprisingly, the usual trio of Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad are right up there at the top of the betting as favourites and it's not rocket science as to why that is.
They have an excellent squad of players, fine captains, strong results at home and a good track record of performing in the IPL year in year out. The smart money is on this trio finishing in the Top 4 and then battling it out in the Playoffs for the crown of IPL 13. If we really, really had to pick a side to go all the way it would probably be Chennai, but there's not much in it.
But who can join them as the fourth team to get out of the Group Stages? IPL odds have the Delhi Capitals as slight outsiders but that might be doing them a disservice. We really like their wonderful batting line-up where big hitters such as Shaw and Pant can blast away, knowing that guys like Dhawan, Carey and Iyer can play smart cricket and keep the scoreboard ticking over. We've already mentioned their slightly suspect-looking fast bowling department, but their batters and spinners should be more than good enough to at least get them to the Playoffs.
It might be worth chancing the Kings XI to finish rock bottom but if you want to be a bit braver, go for Bangalore at higher odds. Until they learn from their past mistakes, they're always vulnerable to having another disastrous campaign. You'd think that aside captained by Virat Kohli would do the simple things well, such as fielding, but year after year they disappoint their fans..

Three-time champions and last year’s runners-up, Chennai Super Kings, are among the favourites to win the 2020 IPL title.
MS Dhoni returns to the limelight as Chennai Super Kings’ captain, as they bid for a record-equalling fourth IPL title following a successful return to the tournament.
Banned for two years in 2016 and 2017 due to the involvement of their owners in the 2013 IPL Betting Case, Chennai have reached the final twice on their return.
Shane Watson batted them to victory in the 2018 Final, but they lost a thrilling match by one run to Mumbai Indians last time out. Chennai had finished second in the league table on both occasions.
Dhoni was their top runscorer last season, scoring 416 in 12 innings, while Watson and Faf du Plessis also made key contributions for the experienced Chennai team.
That experience also extends to their bowling attack, where 40-year-old Imran Tahir returns after taking 26 wickets last season to top the bowling charts.
The Chepauk wicket was a slow turner last season, making run-scoring difficult; spin is not uncommon, but there is usually a bit more pace to the pitch.
Despite an aging squad, Chennai Super Kings have been happy to largely keep things as they are. It means seven players aged 35 or over in the CSK squad.
David Willey and Sam Billings have been released from last year’s squad, but Sam Curran and Josh Hazlewood arrive as new overseas players after Chennai spent big in the IPL auction.
Their biggest buy was Piyush Chawla for ?6.75 crore and they also added R Sai Kishore as an extra spin bowling option too.
MS Dhoni will lead the team, despite his international career seemingly now being over.
Captain – MS Dhoni: Top scorer for Chennai Super Kings again last season, the captain and wicket-keeper-batsman has something to prove at this year’s tournament. Overlooked by India, the 38-year-old is still a man for big occasions as he looks to add to his 27 T20 half-centuries.
Shane Watson: Could not find his rhythm last year, having starred in the title win 12 months earlier, but his T20 record speaks for itself. The Australian’s half-century for Rangpur Rangers at the Bangladesh Premier League was his 49th in T20 cricket, and he also has six hundreds to his name.
Dwayne Bravo: Fit again, the West Indian all-rounder returned to the international fold to take five wickets in three matches against Ireland in January. Still a hugely popular player on the franchise circuit, he averages 23.89 with the bat in T20 cricket and 24.49 with the ball. He needs five more wickets to be the first to 500 in the format.
Imran Tahir: Even at 40, the South African international leg-spinner remains one of the top bowlers on the circuit. His bowling form during the Caribbean Premier League (16 wickets in nine games) and the Mzansi Super League (17 in 11) proved his enduring quality.
Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla, Imran Tahir
Chennai Super Kings have an extremely experienced squad, with key overseas quartet Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Dwayne Bravo and Imran Tahir all 35 or older.
MS Dhoni is 38, while other squad members include Harbhajan Singh, who is 39.
New overseas signings Sam Curran and Josh Hazlewood will have their work cut out forcing their way into this Chennai Super Kings squad as a result.
But that is a testament to their strength in depth with both the bat and ball.
Away from the overseas players, Shardul Thakur has established himself as a likely T20 World Cup player for India recently and Deepak Chahar’s IPL record speaks for itself too.
It is easy to see how Chennai Super Kings have reached the final in each of the last two seasons and it would not be a great surprise if they managed it again.
Chennai Super Kings have retained the experienced core of the their team and as long as they all live up to their reputations – and Imran Tahir’s recent form suggests he will at least – they are going to be among the top teams again.
Whether they have enough to claim the title remains to be seen, however – last year’s defeat could be replicated this time out.
Chennai Super Kings are 6.00 to win the 2020 IPL – which would mean a record-equalling fourth title – with Bet365. The are 5.50 to win the title with Betway, which makes them joint-second-favourites.
Delhi Capitals have never reached the IPL final but go into the 2020 tournament looking to build on last season’s play-off place.
Formerly known as the Delhi Daredevils, the franchise underwent some changes last season and, as the Delhi Capitals, reached the play-offs for the first time in seven years.
Coached by Ricky Ponting and captained by in-form Indian international Shreyas Iyer, the Capitals best finish is third place. They have never reached the final, but did finish top of the points table in the 2009 edition.
Bottom of the pile if 2018, they bounced back last year with some improved performances – Shikhar Dhawan’s return at the top of the order proving key as he hit 521 runs.
Rishabh Pant (488 runs) and Iyer (463) also placed in the top ten overall runscorers last season, while Kagiso Rabada proved an inspired signing as he took 25 wickets in 12 matches before succumbing to injury.
Dhawan, Pant, Iyer and Rabada all return for the 2020 season, but there have been a number of changes with some exciting, big-name signings announced for the new campaign.
The Arun Jaitley Stadium – part of the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground complex in New Delhi – does encourage some turn but the pitch is generally well-balanced and gives something to the batsman too.
Delhi have been busy in the build-up to the 2020 season, with their squad taking on a very new dimension even before this year’s IPL auction.
In the pre-auction trades, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ajinkya Rahane were acquired, while Sherfane Rutherford and Trent Boult were among those to make way.
Then, at the auction, having released nine players – including Colin Ingram, Colin Munro and Chris Morris – Delhi picked up some eye-catching overseas players.
English duo Jason Roy and Chris Woakes were both acquired, while Big Bash League star Marcus Stoinis joins up too, as do Alex Carey and Shimron Hetmyer.
On the domestic front, the signings of Lalit Yadav, Tushar Deshpande and Mohit Sharma round off the new-look squad.
Captain – Shreyas Iyer: Scored 463 runs last season, to follow the 411 he managed the previous season, and the India international will arrive at this tournament in good batting form following his excellent scoring for the national team against New Zealand.
Marcus Stoinis: One of the more eye-catching arrivals thanks to his batting form in the Big Bash League, in which he was one of the star players for the second consecutive season. Stoinis scored six half-centuries and one record-breaking 147* on his way to 705 runs in total.
Shikhar Dhawan: His shoulder injury – sustained while playing for India – could rule him out of the start of the tournament, but Delhi will be counting the days to his return. The opener hit 521 runs last season – including five half-centuries.
Kagiso Rabada: One of the players of the tournament last year, the South African took 25 wickets in just 12 matches, at an average of 14.72, before withdrawing due to injury. He recently took his 100th wicket in T20 cricket and he now has 105 from 76 innings.

*Injured for start of tournament – could be replaced by Prithvi Shaw
Delhi Capitals have never reached the IPL final, but they have taken a team which finished third last season and added plenty of quality to it.
Jason Roy, Chris Woakes and Marcus Stoinis all arrive as overseas signings for big prices – the Australian in particular is an exciting addition after his BBL form.
Add to that Ajinkya Rahane and Ravichandran Ashwin – both traded in before the auction – and you can see the rise in overall quality of this team.
One issue will be fitness, particularly with Shikhar Dhawan expected to miss the start of the tournament.
Kagiso Rabada managed 12 games last year before a back injury ruled him out, meanwhile – though he does not have a World Cup to manage his fitness for.
The new overseas signings also raises the question as to how everybody can be fitted in. Sandeep Lamichhane, Shimron Hetmyer and Alex Carey could be surplus to requirements early on – highlighting their strength in depth.
The Capitals have improved exponentially since last season, where their third place already highlight their capabilities.
They should be targeting a return to the play-offs at a bar minimum this season.
Delhi Capitals have added quality to an already solid-looking team, which reached the play-offs last year.
At a minimum, the Capitals should be able to reach the play-offs again and a bit of luck at the right times – plus their big-name new signings hitting top form – can turn that into a first ever tilt at the title.
Delhi Capitals are 8.00 to win the 2020 IPL for the first time with Bet365, while Betway – presumably mindful of their new signings – have priced the Capitals at 7.00 to win the title.
Kings XI Punjab are one of the teams still searching for a first IPL title, despite having topped the league in 2014 and finished as runners-up. They have not reached the play-offs in any of the last five seasons.
One of the least successful franchises in IPL history, Kings XI Punjab are still seeking their first ever Indian Premier League title.
Indeed, they have only reached the play-offs twice – finishing third in 2008 and as runners-up, after topping the table, in 2014.
In the five seasons since, they have finished bottom twice and were sixth last year and they go into this season having seen Ravichandran Ashwin depart.
They have no shortage of talent – KL Rahul was the top Indian run-scorer last year, with 593 runs, and arrives at this year’s tournament in excellent batting form.
Chris Gayle, meanwhile, returns aged 40 as he bids to add to the 490 runs he clocked last season too.
Mohammed Shami leads the bowling attack, meanwhile, and took 19 wickets last season but a run of four straight defeats – before signing off with a win – ensured they missed out on a play-off spot on net run rate.
Mohali’s PCA Stadium, with its 16 low-height (to avoid aircraft from Chandigarh airport) floodlights, has slowed down in recent years. The green pitch and lush outfield means fast bowlers can still take advantage, however.
Kings XI Punjab have torn up the squad list from last season, having sold Ravichandran Ashwin to Delhi Capitals in a pre-auction trade.
Kings XI brought in Krishnappa Gowtham pre-auction, and then set to work spending their ?42.7 Crore purse on some big-name acquisitions.
Glenn Maxwell, fresh from captaining Melbourne Stars to the Big Bash League Final again, was their biggest acquisition – he previously helped KXIP to the 2014 final.
Chris Jordan and Sheldon Cottrell bolster the pace attack options, meanwhile, while James Neesham arrived for a bargain price of ?50 lakh.
Among their Indian acquisitions, teenager Ravi Bishnoi – who impressed at the 2020 Under-19 Cricket World Cup – is among the more interesting new signings.
Captain – KL Rahul: Last season’s top Indian runscorer, Lokesh Rahul scored 593 runs in 14 innings, including six half-centuries and an unbeaten hundred. He arrives in fine form too, after some excellent performances for India against Australia and New Zealand.
Glenn Maxwell: Took a break for mental health reasons earlier this winter and showed the benefits of his time off when he returned to action for Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League. He contributed with bat and ball and continues to boast a 154.40 strike rate in T20i cricket.
Mohammed Shami: Topped Kings XI Punjab’s wicket-taking charts last season with 19 in his 14 appearances. The paceman’s preferred format is 50-over cricket, but he is still very capable of making his IPL mark.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman: The teenage spin bowler’s reputation continues to grow and the Afghan international arrives at the IPL on the back of wicket-taking stints in the Bangladesh Premier League with Cumilla Warriors and the BBL with Brisbane Heat.
KL Rahul (c, wk), Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell, Karun Nair, Krishnappa Gowtham, Mohammed Shami, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Arshdeep Singh, Ishan Porel, Ravi Bishnoi
Kings XI Punjab lost form at the key time last season, with four consecutive defeats in games 10-13. They recovered to sign off with a win, but it was not enough to prevent them missing out on the play-offs on net run rate.
And they could end up coming up short this time too. For all their eye-catching acquisitions, their overseas contingent will only make up four of their starting XI.
Add KL Rahul and Mohammed Shami to the mix and there is obvious quality on show, but it does not run as deep as some of the other teams in action.
Rahul’s run-scoring form, and the performances Glenn Maxwell showcased in the Big Bash League, means there should be some good times ahead this season for the Mohali-based franchise.
But whether those good moments arrive often enough, and consistently enough, to earn anything other than yet another league-phase exit, remains to be seen.
Kings XI Punjab have strengthened impressively, with Glenn Maxwell a particularly eye-catching signing to join the likes of KL Rahul and Mohammed Shami in the squad. They seem to lack strength in depth, however – while their overseas contingent is strong, they can only play four at a time.
Kings XI Punjab are ranked among the outsiders for the 2020 Indian Premier League, and the loss of Ravichandran Ashwin certainly does not help. They are now priced at 10.00 to win the title with Bet365 and a best price of 11.00 with Betway.
Kolkata Knight Riders are looking to get back on track after missing out on the play-offs for the first time in four years last season.
Two-time former winners and play-off regulars, Kolkata Knight Riders have a new coach in Brendon McCullum for the coming IPL season.
Still captained by Dinesh Karthik, they are looking to improve on a rare tournament in which they missed out on the play-offs last season – after finishing fifth on net run rate.
Champions in 2012 and 2014, they reached the play-offs in three consecutive seasons between 2016 and 2018.
This season, however, they have made some bold player decisions – including opting not to retain McCullum’s long-time opening partner, Chris Lynn.
They had plenty to spend in the IPL auction as a result, and they have gone big for the new season.
Kolkata Knight Riders have also retained last season’s star man too, with Andre Russell – who hit 510 runs at a strike rate of 204.81 and also took 11 wickets – set to be a key player once again.
As well as last season’s MVP in Russell, Kolkata Knight Riders also boasted the Emerging Player of the Season, Shubman Gill, and there is optimism ahead of their 2020 campaign as a result.
Kolkata’s Eden Gardens is one of the world’s most iconic cricket stadiums. It is a traditionally slower wicket, assisting the batsmen and the spin bowlers.
Kolkata Knight Riders’ released list was one of the more eye-catching ahead of this season’s Indian Premier League.
Big-hitting Aussie opener Chris Lynn, West Indian Carlos Brathwaite and experienced Indian – and former vice-captain – Robin Uthappa were all released and KKR went big at the auction.
Pat Cummins cost ?15.5 crore, but there was still plenty left in the purse for England captain Eoin Morgan and rising star Tom Banton.
Other acquisitions include Varun Chakravarthy and Rahul Tripathi, though economical bowler Chris Green’s signing was marred by the fact he was slapped with a bowling ban shortly afterwards.
Manimaran Siddharth and Nikhil Nak were also acquired in the IPL auction, but a further signing – Pravin Tambe – was subsequently deemed unavailable after the 48-year-old veteran was drafted (but did not play) in the T10 League.
Captain – Dinesh Karthik: Overlooked by India, the wicket-keeper-batsman may feel he has something to prove in this year’s IPL. He has scored 29 T20 half-centuries on his way to 5,708 runs in the format with a strike rate of 132.92.
Andre Russell: Last season’s IPL MVP, the all-rounder starred with bat and ball with some incredible innings and some key wickets too. There are always questions around his fitness, but when he is fit and firing there is arguably nobody better in T20 cricket. He most recently starred as Rajshahi Royals won the Bangladesh Premier League.
Eoin Morgan: The England captain lifted the World Cup last summer and will want to continue his good batting form at the IPL as he bids to add the ICC T20 World Cup to his trophy cabinet too. He has a strike rate of 131.52 in T20 cricket.
Pat Cummins: Kolkata spent big at this year’s IPL auction to acquire the Australian paceman, who sat out of this year’s Big Bash League. This will be his time to hone his T20 form then as he bids to add to his 92 wickets in 77 previous matches.
Shubman Gill, Tom Banton, Dinesh Karthik (c, wk), Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Varun Chakravarthy, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, Pat Cummins
Kolkata Knight Riders are play-off regulars at the IPL and have spent big this season to ensure they get back there after missing out narrowly in 2019.
Chris Lynn’s departure has been countered by the signing of England captain Eoin Morgan and big-hitting Tom Banton, while Pat Cummins now heads up the bowling attack.
Those three join Andre Russell as a formidable overseas quartet and that is without considering the likes of Sunil Narine, Harry Gurney and Lockie Ferguson who could all play a part this season too.
In fact, Narine could be preferred to Banton as opener, and both will put pressure on the other to ensure only top performances will be rewarded with a regular place in the team.
Russell was the star of the show last season and deserved a shot at the title, but he arrives at the IPL fresh from T20 success in Bangladesh already this season.
Dre Russ could be the key man again, particularly if he fires as spectacularly as last season, but Kolkata will hope their new signings ease some of the pressure on the West Indian.
If they do, a play-off place should be the minimum KKR expect at the 2020 Indian Premier League.
Kolkata Knight Riders have a fiercely-strong, well-balanced team and, if they can keep the likes of Andre Russell fit and firing, they can seal a top-four place.
From there, the question is whether they can out-do the very best teams – but that is where they may come up short.
Kolkata Knight Riders are 8.00 to win the 2020 IPL with both Bet365 and Betway, pricing them in the middle of the card with both.
Last year’s champions, Mumbai Indians, are favourites to defend their crown and win the IPL 2020 title.
Captained by Rohit Sharma, Mumbai Indians secured a thrilling a one-run win in last year’s final to win the IPL title for the fourth time.
It was the same margin of victory by which they beat Rising Pune Supergiant in 2017 to win their previous title, while they were also victorious in 2013 and 2015.
Quinton de Kock was their top run-scorer last season, hitting 529 runs, while captain Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav and all-rounder Hardik Pandya also passed 400 runs.
Jasprit Bumrah leads the bowling attack and took 19 wickets with an economy rate of just 6.63 runs per over last season.
Lasith Malinga is the Mumbai Indians – and the IPL’s – all-time leading wicket-taker, meanwhile, and the Sri Lankan took 16 wickets last season to move to 170 in total.
Traditionally an excellent batting wicket, full of runs, the Mumbai pitch can also grip and turn sharply on occasions.
The biggest news for Mumbai Indians at the IPL auction was the signing of Chris Lynn, with the big-hitting Australian set to join Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock at the top of the batting order.
Nathan Coulter-Nile also joins Mumbai Indians for this season, while Trent Boult and Sherfane Rutherford were traded in ahead of the auction.
Of the Indian players, Saurabh Tiwary re-joined Mumbai Indians in the auction, while Mohsin Khan, Prince Balwant Rai Singh and Digvijay Deshmukh were signed.
Mumbai Indians retained the core of their title-winning team, however – with the most notable released players including Evin Lewis, Yuvraj Singh and Alzarri Joseph.
Captain – Rohit Sharma: The India superstar has been in superb form since the last IPL, where he was a little inconsistent but still racked up more than 400 runs. He has most recently been in excellent batting form for India in New Zealand and is likely to pass 9,000 T20 runs during this year’s tournament.
Quinton de Kock: The South African wicket-keeper-batsman was Mumbai Indians’ top run-scorer last season and his batting form has been consistently good since too. Handed the captaincy for South Africa’s white-ball series with England, De Kock was man of the series in the ODI leg.
Jasprit Bumrah: It is not just that the Indian paceman takes wickets, but he keeps things so tight with the ball too. Bumrah was Mumbai Indians’ leading wicket-taker last season and his T20 record of 182 wickets in 157 matches, with an economy rate of 7.06 runs per over, speaks for itself.
Hardik Pandya: The star all-rounder is expected to be fit for the IPL, so the burning question will be whether he can hit the ground running and return to top form. Pandya took 14 wickets last season and smashed 402 runs. His strike rate of 191.42 showed how dangerous he can be when he gets going.
Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Chris Lynn, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga
Mumbai Indians have retained the core of last season’s title-winning team, packed with overseas experience and some of the cream of Indian talent.
Kieron Pollard, Lasith Malinga and Quinton de Kock all have international captaincy experience, while there is no shortage of big-hitting talent – particularly now Chris Lynn has arrived too.
The big question will be fitness. Rohit Sharma suffered a calf injury during India’s tour of New Zealand and Hardik Pandya – though expected to be fit – has played just two matches since last year’s World Cup.
If both are back to full fitness and back to their best, Mumbai Indians will take some stopping again.
There is still strength in depth in this Mumbai Indians team if they do not recover, but there is no question they are both key to their hopes of success.
There is also the question of how they will fit their overseas stars in – the core of last year’s team included De Kock, Pollard and Malinga and if all three start, there is only one place for Nathan Coulter-Nile, Trent Boult and Chris Lynn to fight over.
Sharma and Pandya’s fitness may dictate which combination of overseas players is deployed.
Nevertheless, Mumbai are the most successful team in IPL history and, while they have so far never successfully defended an IPL title, there is a first time for everything…
Mumbai Indians could not be stopped last season and their additions this year will only strengthen an already strong line-up.
They have a brilliantly-balanced line-up with some huge hitters at the top of the order, some valuable all-rounders and then some of the stand-out bowlers in the tournament too.
Mumbai Indians are 5.00 favourites to win the IPL 2020 title with Bet365 and Betway. The defending champions have never won two consecutive IPL titles, but having retained the core of last season’s team, this could be the year.
Rajasthan Royals, winners of the inaugural Indian Premier League back in 2008, will be looking to bounce back after finishing seventh following a disappointing 2019 campaign.
Back in the IPL after their two-year ban, Rajasthan Royals – who won the first ever IPL title – were fired to the play-offs by Jos Buttler in 2018.
His success was also their undoing, however, as it meant he earned an England recall and missed the play-offs, but the Royals could not reach those same heights last season and finished seventh.
Buttler and Ben Stokes return for 2020, but the Royals have suffered an injury blow regarding their third England star with Jofra Archer likely to miss most – if not all – of the tournament due to injury.
Captained by Steve Smith, the Royals have otherwise undergone some big changes for 2020 – last season’s top runscorer, Ajinkya Rahane, was among 12 players released.
Some of those were re-signed – Jaydev Unadkat among them – but this is will be a Rajasthan Royals team with a very different look as they bid to bounce back this season.
The Jaipur stadium, which also hosted last season’s Women’s T20 Challenge, tends to be an excellent wicket for batting with a lush outfield rewarding good strokeplay.
Rajasthan Royals purchased more players in the IPL auction than any other team, having released 11 players and signed 11 players back up. That list does include Jaydev Unadkat and Oshane Thomas, however, who – after being released – were both re-acquired.
Robin Uthappa was their most expensive purchase at ?3 crore, while they also picked up some bargains – including adding strength in depth to their overseas quota.
David Miller cost just ?75 lakh, while Tom Curran and Andrew Tye were each ?1 crore and, in light of Archer’s injury, could both prove more important signings than anticipated.
Among the other interesting signings was Yashasvi Jaiswal – India’s star batsman at the 2020 Under-19 Cricket World Cup.
He cost ?2.4 crore to prove his growing reputation and the 18-year-old could be a breakthrough star this season.
Kartik Tyagi and Akash Singh were also acquired on the back of their performances at the Under-19 World Cup, while Anuj Rawat and Anuruddha Joshi complete the list of incoming players.
Captain – Steve Smith: Made his long-awaited Big Bash League return to help Sydney Sixers to the title and will hope he can continue his superb cross-format batting form to lead Rajasthan Royals to success this season.
Ben Stokes: After a superb year in test and ODI cricket, England’s star all-rounder showed his T20 form with bat and ball in the series win against South Africa. It was a timely reminder of how key he can be for the Royals too.
Jos Buttler: Lacking form until he signed off from England’s T20i series with South Africa with a half-century. It was his form for Rajasthan Royals two seasons ago that led to his England recall in the first place.
Shreyas Gopal: The Indian all-rounder was Rajasthan’s top wicket-taker last season with 20 in 14 matches. His leg-spin has now brought 78 wickets in 58 T20 innings in total.

Jofra Archer’s absence is a big blow, but Rajasthan have his England team-mate Tom Curran – in such good form at the Big Bash League – ready to slot in for the paceman.
A Big Bash icon, Andrew Tye, is also among the options for the fourth overseas place – Steve Smith, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes look guaranteed to be the other three.
Buttler’s hitting will be key, and the fact he hit a half-century in England’s win against South Africa to regain some form could be a timely boost for Rajasthan.
Ben Stokes and Steve Smith are in fine form across all three formats too, and that overseas trio will be vital to Rajasthan’s hopes.
Their problem is a lack of domestic depth. Robin Uthappa arrives to add experience and Shreyas Gopal was in the wickets last season, but there is a lot of youth otherwise.
Yashasvi Jaiswal could prove a key signing given his form at the Under-19 World Cup – if not now, then certainly in the future.
The same applies to Akash Singh and Kartik Tyagi too, but as for the here and now, they are relying on players who have too often proved inconsistent.
Jaydev Unadkat is the classic example – initially released from his contract but resigned, he has signed for multiple franchises and often at big prices but his impact has been minimal too often.
All in all, Rajasthan have the star players to make a real impact on this tournament if they all fire together. If not, however, there could be too big a gap to make up to the top teams.
Jos Buttler hit top form to lead Rajasthan to the play-offs two years ago, but they relied too heavily upon him. In Ben Stokes and Steve Smith they have two of the most in-form players in world cricket to back him, but beyond their overseas stars their strength in depth may be what costs them.
Rajasthan Royals to win the 2020 IPL
Rajasthan Royals are outsiders for the 2020 Indian Premier League. They can be backed at 10.00 to win the IPL title with both Bet365 and Betway.
Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore continue their search for a first IPL title and will be desperate to bounce back from finishing bottom for the second time in three years last season.
Captained by Virat Kohli, Royal Challengers Bangalore have never really managed to live up to the expectations attached to boasting the national team’s most iconic current player.
Three times runners-up, they reached the play-offs on two further occasions too but the last three seasons have been fairly disastrous results-wise.
Bottom of the pile in 2017, they improved to sixth place in 2018 but again finished last in 2019.
This year, as a result, they have ripped up their overseas contingent and started again with the likes of Australia captain Aaron Finch now on board.
Kohli is their most iconic player, of course – one of only two to have hit 5,000 runs in IPL history, a feat he achieved last season as he scored 464 runs. AB de Villiers returns after scoring 442 last season, meanwhile.
With the ball, Yuzvendra Chahal took another 18 wickets last season to top the wicket-taking charts but it is perhaps telling that the next highest for the Challengers was Navdeep Saini on 11.
Nevertheless, with a new coach in Simon Katich – who replaced Gary Kirsten after his one year in charge ended so disappointingly – and some big new signings, there could be some improvement this year.
A combination of its higher altitude and the short boundaries, as well as a batting-friendly wicket, means there have been plenty of big scores in Bangalore over the years.
Royal Challengers Bangalore released 11 players from last season’s squad, including six notable overseas players.
That freed up space and budget for an overhaul for this season and in have come some big-name players as a result.
Australia captain Aaron Finch is the most notable, while Chris Morris’ bowling form at the Big Bash highlights how good the South African all-rounder can be too.
Dale Steyn, Kane Richardson and Isuru Udana bolster the pace bowling options, meanwhile, and Josh Philippe is a big-hitting wicket-keeper-batsman who was also in good BBL form.
Shahbaz Ahmed and Pawan Deshpande also arrive, though that does leave RCB with the smallest squad in this year’s tournament.
Captain – Virat Kohli: The India captain passed 5,000 runs in IPL history last season and he now has 8,900 runs in T20 cricket in total. That includes 64 half-centuries and five hundreds; the fact it is his least preferred format and he still produces those numbers is the most alarming statistic, however.
AB de Villiers: Only just behind Kohli on the run-scorers list for last season after five half-centuries, the South African icon has something to prove as he targets a return to the national fold for the T20 World Cup. He hit one half-century in his stint at the BBL but his Mzansi Super League form before that was excellent.
Aaron Finch: Perhaps the key signing for this season, the big-hitting Australia captain will open the batting and inject some serious firepower at the top of the order. His last two innings in this year’s Big Bash saw him hit 109 and 63* and he now has 8,803 runs in T20 cricket at a strike rate of 143.72.
Yuzvendra Chahal: The spinner topped RCB’s wicket-taking charts last season with 18 and he is another who can use the Big Bash to cement his international place too. Vying with Kuldeep Yadav to start India’s first game of the T20 World Cup, he the leg-spinner can ensure he is front of the queue with some big performances in this tournament.
AB de Villiers, Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli (c), Parthiv Patel (wk), Shivam Dube, Chris Morris, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Umesh Yadav, Dale Steyn, Navdeep Saini
Royal Challengers Bangalore have the smallest squad in this year’s IPL but they have replaced quantity with quality and Aaron Finch, Chris Morris and Dale Steyn could all be among the key acquisitions for this season.
Add that to the established quality already present – Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers being the obvious two, but also Indian internationals Yuzvendra Chahal, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar and Navdeep Saini too – and you have a very strong XI on paper.
Chahal, Dube, Sundar and Saini are auditioning to cement their place in India’s T20 World Cup plans so this is an important tournament for all four of them – and that could play in the Royal Challengers’ favour.
They also have an abundance of strength in depth when it comes to their overseas stars. The starting XI above, for example, does not include Moeen Ali or Kane Richardson, while Josh Philippe’s BBL form shows what he can do if called upon too.
It means they are not reliant on their veteran South Africans in Steyn and De Villiers playing every game – if there are any injury doubts, there are ready-made replacements.
Finch’s arrival is big too – his big-hitting ability is known the world over and he was in fine form in his most recent Big Bash League matches too.
If he and De Villiers can set the tempo at the order, backed by Kohli, on their batting-friendly home wicket, they can expect a much better season than last time out.
The key question is whether they can break the top four and a lot will depend on how their starting XI fares given they have a small squad.
Whatever happens, however, it is reasonable to expect a vast improvement on their last-placed finish in 2019.
Royal Challengers Bangalore have added real quality this year, and on paper they have a very strong-looking best XI.
The key will be consistent performances and it would not be a surprise to see them challenging for the play-offs until the final match-day. Unfortunately, recent history suggests they may just fall short, however.
Royal Challengers Bangalore, after their miserable season in 2019 and subsequent changes for this year’s edition, are priced at 8.00 with Bet365 and Betway to win the 2020 Indian Premier League.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, the 2016 champions and 2018 runners-up, will be looking to reach the IPL play-offs for a fifth consecutive season.
The youngest of the eight current IPL franchises, Sunrisers Hyderabad have enjoyed a successful time in the tournament since their 2013 debut.
Winners in 2016 and runners-up two years ago, they have been play-off regulars in recent years and are looking for a fifth consecutive top-four finish.
Last season, they were powered by the tournament’s top run-scorer, David Warner, who thumped eight half-centuries and one hundred on his way to 692 runs in total.
He and Jonny Bairstow, who scored 445 runs in ten innings, formed a formidable partnership at the top of the order as they ensured the team did not miss injured Kane Williamson.
Williamson – the key man in their run to the final the previous year – was injured at the start of last season’s tournament and then could not force his way in afterwards, but all three overseas stars will be key again this year.
Williamson has been named as captain again, of a team that retained the bulk of last season’s squad.
That also includes last season’s two top bowlers – Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan (17 in 15 games) and Indian paceman Khaleel Ahmed, who took 19 wickets in just nine matches.
Suspended Shakib-al-Hasan is the main absentee this year, but with 18 players on their retained list it was a quiet auction for the Sunrisers.
Named best ground and pitch last season, the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium tends to produces relatively flat wickets.
Content with last season’s squad, Sunrisers Hyderabad retained 18 of last season’s players, with only five players released. Those five were Deepak Hooda, Martin Guptill, Ricky Bhui, Yusuf Pathan and suspended Shakib-al-Hasan.
In their place, they filled their seven available slots but only one of their incoming players has played IPL matches before – Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh.
Fabian Allen is their other incoming overseas player, while their domestic signings included India Under-19 captain Priyam Garg – fresh from leading them to the World Cup final.
Virat Singh, Bavanka Sandeep, Abdul Samad and Sanjay Yadav were also signed.
Captain - David Warner: David Warner: Marking his comeback, Warner took Sunrisers Hyderabad to the winning pedestal in 2016, the maiden title of the team. The team has retained its roaring batsmen for a whopping Rs.12 crores this season. With 692 runs in 12 innings that include eight half-centuries and one unbeaten hundred, he is all set to assume his responsibility of being an excellent captain. Having won the orange cap twice, his destructive batting would definitely be worth a watch for all the IPL betting enthusiasts.
Kane Williamson: The New Zealand captain’s impact on last season’s tournament was minimal as he struggled with injury, but he was key in 2018 as Sunrisers reached the final. He won the orange cap that year, hitting eight half-centuries and scoring 735 runs in total.
Jonny Bairstow: The big-hitting English wicket-keeper-batsman formed a formidable opening partnership with Warner last season. His own contribution was two half-centuries and one hundred on his way to 445 runs in ten innings. His recent form for England in the shortest format was also good.
Rashid Khan: The Afghan spinner is still the number-one ranked bowler in T20i cricket. Over the last two seasons he has 38 IPL wickets in 32 appearances, and was back to his wicket-taking best in the Big Bash League for Adelaide Strikers recently too.
David Warner(c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Priyam Garg, Rashid Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Siddarth Kaul, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed
David Warner’s suspension in 2018 and Kane Williamson’s injury last season meant there was less selection pressure on the Sunrisers Hyderabad selectors.
Now, however, they must make a choice – it would be brave to leave out any of Warner, Williamson or Jonny Bairstow, but it does mean it could be difficult getting a good balance to the team.
Mohammad Nabi misses out this way, as does new signing Mitchell Marsh – both useful all-rounders.
Sunrisers have kept the core of the team that has reached the play-offs in the last two seasons but the big question is whether they can sustain that challenge this year.
If Warner or Williamson deliver the runs they have in previous years – ensuring Sunrisers have boasted the Orange Cap winner three seasons in a row – they certainly can.
But the big issue is their squad strength beyond those star players. Manish Pandey is playing for his T20 World Cup place, and will hope for big runs, while Khaleel Ahmed was in good wicket-taking form last season.
There is also Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has been plagued by injuries in the past year and will be desperate for some light at the end of the tunnel in that regard.
He is another who will ensure he is in T20 World Cup contention with a big IPL – making up for the time lost to injuries lately.
After four consecutive play-off places, however, could it be that Sunrisers Hyderabad have stood still too much while other teams have strengthened?
If their key players hit top form and their batsmen deliver again, they will be challenging the top four – but there are plenty of teams who missed out last season, who could pip them on their day.
Sunrisers Hyderabad’s quality has showed in recent years, with David Warner and Kane Williamson scoring key runs to lead them to the play-offs. But they have not changed much this season and if their key players do not deliver, this could be the end to their play-off streak.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are among the favourites to win the 2020 Indian Premier League. They can be backed at 5.00 to win with Bet365 and 5.50 with Betway.
If they reach the play-offs, Chennai Super Kings will be among the favourites to reach the final given their excellent record at that stage. Mumbai Indians start out among the favourites ahead of their title defence too, so they too look a good bet to reach the final based on reputation, new signings and past form.
Now in its 13th season, the Indian Premier League (IPL) is one of the world’s biggest sports leagues and the most successful T20 franchise cricket league.
Launched in 2008, the T20 tournament features eight teams – defending champions Mumbai Indians, alongside Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Capitals, Kings XI Punjab, Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Attracting the world’s top players every year, the 2020 tournament gets underway on March 29 and runs until the final at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on May 24.
With its brand value now closing in on US$7 billion, a broadcasting deal with Star India worth US$2.55 billion and Vivo’s annual sponsorship deal valued at US$61.7 million, it is one of the world’s richest sports leagues.
