The Chennai Super Kings will enter the tournament as the defending champions after winning their third title last season, beating the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the final.

Kolkata Knight Riders, with two IPL titles under their belt, will be another side to watch out given their plethora of youngsters they have in their team, while the Royal Challengers Bangalore will want to win their first after years of under-performance.

Others in action will be Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Daredevils and Kings XI Punjab, three teams who will be expected to turn things around after years of under-performance. Rajasthan have one title under their belt all those years ago in 2008 but the other two haven’t even won one.
