It has been 15 seasons, and it has never been easy to make IPL predictions. Predicting something in the T20 format in itself is a difficult task. This format makes the games unpredictable. You cannot simply expect which team will do good and which will get beaten badly. Hence, no one can say for sure whether a team will win the season or not. But we can make certain predictions based on the teams and records. And this is what we will try to do in this article. We will try to predict who can win the IPL 16 through different criteria. One criterion will be the team’s track record, while the other criterion will be the money they spent this time on the players. So without further ado, let’s get right into it.

Previous track record
One way to predict who can win IPL 2023 is the previous track record and stats. Of course, the unpredictability of the game stands, but stats are a good way to predict whether this team has it to win the tournament. Over these 15 years, we have had enough statistical data to determine which teams have won many more titles than the other teams. After a minor analysis, we came to the following conclusion. Based on stats alone, the teams below have a greater chance of winning the IPL 2023.
The team with the most wins in the IPL is Mumbai Indians. They have proved themselves over the years. MI has won a total of 5 IPL seasons. Their performances have been phenomenal in all of these seasons. They have had legends like Sachin Tendulkar as their mentor. Other than that, strong players like Rohit Sharma have been part of this team. Will they win this time as well? We can never know. But according to statistics, they do have the highest probability. Winning 5 out of 15 seasons is no joke.
Captained by the cool and calm MS Dhoni, who else but CSK is to have a chance to win this season? I think we do not need to talk about Dhoni’s captaincy. It is self-explanatory. He has been one of the greatest captains India has seen. Dhoni was able to win the 2011 CWC. But that doesn’t end here. He also has other records under him as well. But strictly speaking, in terms of IPL, he doesn’t fall short in this area. Under him, CSK has won 4 IPL finals, second only to MI. If we have to predict who will be in IPL 2023, then CSK is one of the top contenders.
Teams this year – Based on their auction purse.
Things don’t remain the same each time. In T20, the team that performs at that very moment wins. So, it is wrong to predict past stats alone. But what makes the team win a match, defying all stats and records? It is the presence of match winners. The players who add an X-Factor to the team. The teams who have that X factor perform better. Gujrat Titans showed that last year.
But getting such match winners and dark horses in IPL is costly, so those teams with the most budget tend to get the most impactful players in the auction. Let’s see which teams had the most budget in this year’s auction.
|Team||Budget (INR Crores}|
|Lucknow Super Giants||23.35|
|Chennai Super Kings||20.45|
|Royal Challengers Bangalore||8.75|
|Kolkata Knight Riders||7.05|
Based on this, we can say that the following teams have the strongest chance.
Sunrisers Hyderabad went in with such a huge sum of money. And they didn’t hesitate to spend it either. Among the top 15 expensive players in this year’s auction, they have 4 picks. Their most expensive players are Harry Brook and Mayank Agarwal. From this point of view, SH can win due to its strong team.
Punjab Kings were second only to SH regarding having a huge budget. But they bought the most expensive player this year, Sam Curran. Punjab’s team has been the fieriest and most energetic all these years. Will they be able to win this time? Well, let’s see
Lucknow Super Giants
LSG ended up third on the points table last year. So they already have pretty great momentum. But that is not the only thing they have this year. They spent a huge amount to gather some great talents this year. Based on this, they have a shot at the IPL 2023.
Good news For You, The India Squad For ICC World Cup 2023 is announced.
It is impossible to say which team will win a cricket match. And it is even harder to say which team can win a T20 match. The short format makes it easier for smaller teams to win as well. Over the years, we have seen some upsets from apparently weaker teams. So, all the teams have an equal chance at victory if they have what it takes to win a T20 tournament. And that thing is passion!
