Hyderabad’s IPL beginning wasn’t the best; they finished last in the standings in their first season. However, under Adam Gilchrist’s guidance, they made a turnaround in the second season and eventually won the title. After two below-average seasons in 2011 and 2012, they found their form again in 2013, went by a new name, and after three years, made it to the playoffs once again.

The 2009 winners had to wait an additional seven years for their second trophy, but David Warner gave them the motivation they needed to overcome all obstacles in 2016. SRH is the fifth most successful side in the playoffs, having won five of 11 matches. After making significant changes to its team in the mega- and mini-auctions in 2022, the franchise is hoping for another outstanding season from its players in IPL 2023.

Royal Challengers Bangalore – 6 wins from 14 matches

One of the most well-liked teams in the game is Royal Challengers Bangalore, which has a significant global fan base. Like Hyderabad, RCB too struggled with a poor start in the first IPL season, ending seventh in the standings. Under the direction of Anil Kumble, they were placed second in the next edition. They have emerged as one of the tournament’s most consistent teams in recent years. For the last three years, they have qualified for the playoffs in a row. They’ve won six of the 14 knockout matches they’ve played. In IPL 2023, fans hope that the club will play boldly and break the curse to finally win the title. In 2011 and 2016, they made it to the final game, but they were unable to secure the title. RCB hasn’t won an IPL title in their 15-year history of the league, despite outstanding results in the group stage.

Kolkata Knight Riders – 8 wins from 13 matches | IPL Playoffs

With the help of a magnificent 158 off 73 balls from Brendon McCullum, KKR planted the seeds for the IPL to grow into the greatest Twenty20 competition in the world. As they failed to make the playoffs in each of the first three seasons, their performances, despite a stellar start, began to deteriorate. Under Gautam Gambhir‘s guidance, they achieved their first top-four finish in 2011, and they went on to win their first title that year.

In the 2014 season, the Knight Riders won a second trophy, making them the second team in IPL history to have won two titles. KKR has won eight of the 13 playoff matches it has played and is the third-best team in the knockout stages. They also advanced to the final of the 2021 competition but lost to CSK and fell short of capturing their third trophy.

After being an unremarkable team in the first two seasons, the Mumbai Indians grabbed the IPL by storm in 2010, reaching the final for the first time. They just missed winning the title, when Chennai Super Kings upset them in the final game. Mumbai won their first title three years later, after finding a new leader in Rohit Sharma. Mumbai’s success was the beginning of a juggernaut, and over the next seven years, they went on to win four more titles, making them the most successful franchise in the competition’s history. Mumbai has become one of the playoffs’ most formidable opponents, having won 12 of their last 18 matches. They experienced their worst season in 2022, finishing last in the points standings, and the five-time winners will be hoping to live up to their reputation this season.

Chennai Super Kings – 15 wins from 24 matches

MS Dhoni is renowned as the guy with the ‘Midas touch,’ as his keen leadership abilities can change games in his favor. And the cricketer from Ranchi has shown it time and again while leading Chennai to four IPL wins. CSK finished second in the first competition, falling by a narrow margin against the Rajasthan Royals in the final. They have been the most consistent teams in IPL history, having qualified for the playoffs 11 times in 13 seasons. The four-time winners have won 15 of 24 knockout matches, making them one of the most dangerous teams in the league. After finishing ninth in the previous season, the whole CSK squad will attempt to improve their performance in the current season. If they perform well, they will win their fifth title under MS Dhoni.
