IPL 2020 Teams
Indian Premier League is the only league in the world which has an exclusive window in ICC Future Tours Programme and each year as per BCCI spokesperson, IPL contributes more than 10 Billion Indian Rupees to the GDP of Indian Economy which shows how big of an event IPL 2020 has become over the past 13 years. For this year ipl 2020 teams and players are auctioned and retained in eight different franchises which are as follows.
- Chennai Super Kings
- Delhi Capitals
- Kings XI Punjab
- Kolkata Knight Riders
- Mumbai Indians
- Rajasthan Royals
- Royal Challengers Bangalore
- Sunrisers Hyderabad
Out of the above eight franchises, only the five franchises have been able to win the IPL title while the franchises which include Delhi Capitals, Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore have still not been able to win the big finale of world’s biggest T20 competition. In the IPL 2020, Team RCB would hope that they finally achieve something big under the leadership of Virat Kohli and Ab De Villiers who are the top two players any team would love to have but still the past 12 seasons for RCB has been below par which is a shocker for a lot of cricket fans worldwide. The tournament favorites for IPL 2020 would be Chennai Super Kings which is led by the Great MS Dhoni and Mumbai Indians who are the defending champions and led by the hitman Rohit Sharma who has had the excellent year 2019 he could ever imagine across all the formats.
