The Chennai Super Kings
Undoubtedly, the team ranks as the most consistent team and clear favorites each year. This year will be no different. In the just concluded IPL player auction, CSK has strengthened its squad by acquiring the services of a former spectacular player marking a return. Mohit Sharma was bought for a whooping INR 5crores. Sharma is back for his second cameo with CSK after spending an entire season with Kings XI Punjab. Sharma boasts a record of 84 matches in the IPL and has taken 90 wickets. This is quite a glamorous record and he is expected to replicate that form for CSK when they mount their title challenge this season.
They will always stand out as champions having won the first ever title of the IPL. They plan to mount a serious title challenge and have broken the bank to acquire the services of a top player in the IPL. Jaydev Unadkat was the second highest wicket taker in 2017. He is currently the most expensive buy in IPL 2018 and IPL 2019 as he was bought for INR 11.5crores and INR 8.4 Crores respectively. As a former player of Rajasthan Royals, he seems to have mastered his abilities and gained confidence in the IPL. Rajasthan Royals will heavily rely on the form of the left handed-medium pacer to uplift them to their previous status and glory.
Kings XI Punjab
This team has featured in every edition of the IPL live streaming and it is time to let the big bucks deliver the trophy they know they can win. By acquiring Varun Chakravarty, they have the joint most expensive player in IPL 2019. Chakravarty is a miracle worker in the eyes of many cricket lovers after he led his former team Siechem Madurai Panthers to the league title in the Tamil Nadu premier league.
Every team has strengthened its core by bringing in new players. Whether the expensive players will succumb or deliver is what pegs the mind of every sports fan today.
