It remains to be seen which teams will go on to sign the apt players at the IPL 2023 auction. In the process, we can also expect major bidding wars while going for top players.
Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings failed to qualify for the playoffs in the last edition of the IPL season. While MI hit the rock bottom of the points table, CSK finished in 9th place.
Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants were the two new teams in the last edition of the IPL. The two teams showcased their mettle on the group stage.
Rightly so, both teams made the cut for the playoffs. While Gujarat Titans finished on top of the points table, Lucknow Super Giants finished third on the table.
However, Gujarat Titans defied all the odds and qualified for the final, unlike Lucknow Super Giants who were knocked out by Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Eliminator. Gujarat Titans beat Rajasthan Royals in the final to win their first title.
