Chennai Super Kings


Chennai Super Kings is one of the much loved and followed teams in the history of the Indian Premier League. The team has a broad fan base across the country. Its consistency and continued excellence in the tournament over the years have been admirable. From day one, Chennai played very strongly under Mahendra Singh Dhoni. As a runner-up in the first season to qualifying 11 times out of 13 for the playoffs, CSK won the title 4 times.


Delhi Capitals


In place of regular captain Rishabh Pant, who sustained severe injuries in a car accident last year, the Delhi Capitals will be led by veteran Australian opener David Warner in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. Despite the strong start, the Capitals have underperformed in the IPL. Delhi fans are excited to witness the performance of their favorite team under the new captaincy of David Warner.


Gujarat Titans


Led by Hardik Pandya, by winning the IPL championship in the first season last year, Gujarat Titans created history. They replicated the accomplishment made by the Rajasthan Royals in 2008. After Rajasthan Royals, the Titans are the only other team to win the championship in their inaugural campaign. They had yet to offer the chance to take home the trophy after the IPL 2022 auction. The team defied the odds to win the championship in front of their home crowd in Ahmedabad. The Titans displayed impressive play throughout the season, winning 10 of their first 14 games.


Kolkata Knight Riders


Under Shreyas Iyer's captaincy, KKR will be one of the teams that will compete in the Indian Premier League 2023. For the first time in 2011, the franchise qualified for the IPL playoffs, and in 2012 and 2014, then won the tournament. And in the 2021 tournament, they were runners-up.


Lucknow Super Giants


KL Rahul is currently leading the team. The Lucknow team had a fantastic first season and advanced to the elimination round. But Lucknow's misfortune was that it lost to RCB. It will now be a battle to determine their IPL 2023 fortune, and they hope to win the IPL in the final match.


Mumbai Indians


Over the years, the Mumbai Indians have won two Champions League T20 and five IPL titles. As the team's captain, Rohit Sharma has performed admirably. Along with Cameron Green and Jofra Archer, who will be making their MI debuts at the upcoming edition, the two players currently on fire will be the ones to watch.


Punjab Kings


Shikhar Dhawan is the newest captain of the Punjab Kings in IPL 2023. Despite being a left-handed batsman, Shikhar Dhawan was the star opener for the Indian cricket team. He is the second-best batsman in IPL history. Sam Curran, an English all-rounder, became the most expensive player in IPL history when the Punjab Kings broke the bank to sign him in the IPL 2023 mini-auction for a record INR 18.50 crore.


Rajasthan Royals


Sanju Samson led the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2022 finals. The 28-year-old will again serve as the team's captain in the T20 league. Rajasthan Royals is the first team to win the first IPL title in IPL. The team won the first and only IPL title in 2008.


Royal Challengers Bangalore


The former captain of the South African squad will lead the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Faf du Plessis was the team's IPL 2022 captain after Virat Kohli. In the previous Indian Premier League season, RCB came in fourth place.


Sunrisers Hyderabad


David Warner led the Sunrises Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League the previous season. However, Aiden Markram, a South African cricketer, will captain Sunrisers Hyderabad instead of David Warner, who might supervise the Delhi Capitals. Markram, the 29-year-old batting all-rounder, was outstanding in the SA20 league, leading his side to the top spot and winning the tournament's player of the year award with 366 runs and 11 wickets.
