With just four days to go for the mega event at MA Chidambaram stadium. Debates, discussions and predictions on the Bet rally and Dream 11 have already begun. Gautham Gambhir, former Indian left-handed batsman makes a prediction of those top-four teams that can qualify for the league.
Talking to Star Sports in the IPL analysis show aired on Monday afternoon (March 19), Gambhir picked four teams for the playoffs this coming season- “Mumbai Indians, Kings XI Punjab, Sunrisers Hyderabad, KKR,” to the fact that he had played for Kolkata Night Riders for more than 7 years he had forgotten to include his former team. It was Gambhir who had guided the Kolkata-based franchise to two IPL victories- 2012 and 2014 and gave KKR their cherishable moments in his captaincy reign.
Did he disappoint Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni fans? While Chennai Super kings were absolutely brilliant last year as they managed to win the title under the leadership of Dhoni who led a team with most 30-plus aged players, Well Kohli having trophyless run in IPL history with Royal Challengers Bangalore still remains a strong favorite to lift the title.
On other hand Matthew Hayden and Mitchell Johnson involved themselves in the prediction. The Veteran, Hayden picked “Chennai Super Kings, Kolkata Night Riders, Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad,” While Johnson picked “Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals”.
Well, IPL will kick off from March 23 in Chennai where defending champions Chennai Super kings will host Royal Challengers Bangalore. It is going to be one hell of a match, where lions meet the challengers for the mega event.” Boys are motivated well and looking forward for a great match” says MS Dhoni in the recent interview. Let us wish both the teams good luck.
