Odds to reach the final – 7/5
Mumbai Indians is the most consistent side in the history of the IPL. They have won the most titles (5 out of 13 seasons), including 2 consecutive title triumphs in the last 2 seasons. The parameter of their consistency could be measured given their 5 title-winning campaigns came in the last 8 editions. They have arguably the strongest playing 11 in all of the IPL with the right balance of experience and youth. Mumbai Indians also have one of the strongest cores of the Indian players which makes them further resilient.
Mumbai Indians like to keep their structure intact with minimal changes. They have the most successful captain of the IPL in Rohit Sharma and a team with a winning mentality. They have every base covered in their squad from a destructive opening combination to a solid middle-order. Explosive finishers down the order provide the cutting edge to their menacing batting line-up. Their bowling is also well-balanced with the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, and Nathan Coulter-Nile.
One could point only a single weakness in Mumbai Indians set-up is the absence of a quality spinner. While Rahul Chahar is a decent leg-spinner, he is still inexperienced to be the lead spinner. His back-up in Piyush Chawla comes with a ton of experience but he is in the twilight of his career.
Mumbai Indians Squad:
Rohit Sharma (Captain), Rahul Chahar, Jayant Yadav, Dhawal Kulkarni, Quinton de Kock, Saurabh Tiwary, Aditya Tare, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Chris Lynn, Anmolpreet Singh, Anukul Roy, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, and Mohsin Khan.
Odds to win the title – 9/2
Odds to reach the final – 17/10
Formerly known as Delhi Daredevils, Delhi Capitals would enter the tournament as the early favorites to win the title. They are struck with a thunderous blow as their regular skipper Shreyas Iyer is out of the tournament with an injury, but they have an able replacement in Ajinkya Rahane to fill in the gap.
Delhi Capitals have improved a lot in recent years, and they have been consistently competing for the title. They reached the final last season but failed to clear the last hurdle. The capital-based franchise would hope for a better result this time around by lifting the IPL trophy under the tutelage of the Aussie great Ricky Ponting.
Just like Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals have a solid core of premium Indian players. They have instilled the exuberant of youth in their squad especially in their batting line-up. They have the most fearsome bowling unit with the presence of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Ishant Sharma, Ravi Ashwin, Axar Patel, and Amit Mishra. The acquisition of Umesh Yadav in the auctions has them further strong.
The only weakness one could see on the Delhi Capitals side is the inconsistent top order. Prithvi Shaw had a poor season last time around, and Ajinkya Rahane also failed to live up to his reputation. However, Prithvi Shaw would walk into the tournament behind a super-successful domestic season. The inclusion of Steve Smith would also add much-needed stability to Delhi Capitals’ batting.
Delhi Capitals Squad:
Rishabh Pant (Captain), Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Ajinkya Rahane, Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Avesh Khan, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Chris Woakes, Sam Billings, Tom Curran, Lukman Meriwala, M Siddharth, Marcus Stoinis, Praveen Dubey, Shimron Hetmyer, Vishnu Vinod, Ripal Patel, Umesh Yadav, and Steve Smith.
