Which team has the highest probability to win IPL 2022?
IPL 2022 went completely unpredictable since two of the strongest teams Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings gave their worst performances. On the other hand, new entrants Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans remained consistent throughout the season. Rajasthan Royals out of 14 games won 9 and Royal Challengers Bangalore played 14 games out of which they won 8.
LSG led by KL Rahul had a very good start but they were disappointed by losing two games in a trot from the last five matches. Royal Challengers Bangalore had a decent performance in IPL 2022 but their batters like Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis had inconsistent performance in this edition which puts a question mark if they are going to qualify for the finals. Gujarat Titans led by Hardik Pandya have a well-balanced batting and bowling squad. Seeing their track record, it can be speculated that they will be appearing in the finale. Rajasthan Royals are the second team that has a higher chance of playing in the finale. Jos Buttler in the highest scorer in IPL 2022 with 629 runs and had a terrific form throughout the season.
If a match takes place between the two teams, the game will be a nail-biting one, if it’s decided by the consistency of the two teams in the past few matches, RR are in a better form, so they may win.
