Can't see a winner other than CSK to be honest.

Maybe KKR can challenge them but the rest two are just perennial chokers and will once again succumb under the pressure of finals.
Well KKR did try their very best to get into the elite chokers group.

So CSK vs KKR in the finals.

Prediction - DK will play a blinder in the final but will it be enough?

CSK's record in finals: 8 attempts; won 3, lost 5; success %: 38
KKR's record in finals: 2 attempts; won 2, lost 0; success %: 100
CSK vs KKR record in finals: 1 attempt; won by KKR (2012)

Stats tilt it in favor of KKR! And form and team composition also on their side.

But the sample size isn't enough though, as we're not a having a new winner, I'd rather want CSK winning...

Actually, there's a huge connection as there are a lot of people in my area blindly worshipping the team for an actor plus I didn't like GG either so it has stayed like I hate the team very much... Nothing against its fans, but idk why but I am just unable to have some positives for them... Anyways, good luck to you, hope that you are happy at the end of the tournament, we all will be happy if MS signs off with a trophy though.

My story as I have shared previously stems from loving Dada. Yes the actor behind the team is someone who I admired when I was younger. When GG took over, I was still happy as I liked him as a batsman and a leader. His off field nature is something I personally do not care like I do not care for any players or actors or leaders on what they do in their personal time. Plus being born in Mumbai and having attended so many Mumbai Indians games up until 2012, I had two teams.

I always love CSK but when Dhoni was leading India, I knew CSK would flourish under him. I was like I already support that chap in Indian jersey and have always done that, its time I follow someone else. I was a huge VK admirer but never liked his captaincy 1 bit so never supported RCB... DC, SRH/Chargers/RR/KXIP all had no connection with me whatsoever. The only time I might have supported KXIP was for Yuvi. I feel lucky to feel the connection with two teams in IPL in KKR and MI but KKR just edges out a little. Have gone through a lot with that team. First three seasons were brutal and the moment Gauti took over first play offs then champions in the next season.


On a different topic looking at the stats, DC and RCB are the only two teams who have qualified for the playsoffs half the time and not yet won a trophy. Hopefully one of them win next year.

I think CSK and RR have played only 11 seasons till date (not including IPL 2021). How do you get 12 seasons for CSK while 13 seasons for Rajasthan Royals? All the above teams have played 13 seasons (again, not including IPL 2021).
