It will not be easy though, as a lot of top franchises have added some much-needed reinforcements. Whether they are now able to perform or not is another thing. However, the fans will be hoping to see some good cricket. They have been waiting patiently for months during the pandemic and IPL 2020 was a relief for true cricket lovers.

Also, with the T20 World Cup coming up in India later this year, this is one of the biggest IPL tournaments in recent times. Not just Indian players and Pundits, but players from other countries know its importance as well. Let’s wait and watch who wins the title this time!!
