Royal Challengers Bangalore

The RCB IPL has always been a thing as the team has participated in every IPL season since its inception. They started poorly in 2008, managing to reach only the 7th spot in the season's league stage and winning only four matches, two of which were against the Deccan Chargers, the worst-ranked team of the season.

However, IPL 2009 was a significant change, as Challengers managed to become runner-ups, losing to the Deccan Chargers by only 6 runs. As RCB IPL record shows, it was a big turn of events as the Deccan Chargers barely managed to pass the league stage with a better NRR than the next team — Kings XI Punjab, the today’s Punjab Kings.

The Royal Challengers had mixed results afterwards, and as you can see from the RCB IPL stats, they never managed to win the champion title, despite being runner-ups three times. As for IPL 2021, they had the same achievements as before, finishing in fourth place again. They lost the Eliminator match to the Kolkata Knight Riders by 4 wickets.

The RCB IPL team has changed things up a bit for the upcoming season, showing that they are pretty poised to finally win the champion title. RCB IPL record shows the team had a lot of glamorous names on their squad, but now many notable RCB players of great renown are gone, including Chris Gayle, Yuvraj Singh, and AB de Villiers.

SRH auction 2022 retained their captain Kane Williamson for 14 crore and last year’s star Umran Malik for only 4 crore. They also retained one more player, the all-rounder Abdul Samad for 4 crore. They wanted to start the new season differently, so they decided to retain only three players. Some of the notable new names they signed up include Nicholas Pooran (10.75 crore), Washington Sundar (8.75 crore), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4.2 crore), and Aiden Markram (2.6 crore).

They’ve added the experienced Faf du Plessis and placed him to lead the team. Thanks to him and Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, and Dinesh Karthik, the team’s batting side has a lot of heart and is likely the Challengers’ greatest strength.

However, they are also banking heavily on their younger Indian players and don’t have a good domestic spinner, which is one of the main reasons, aside from other RCB IPL stats, they are not the favourites to win the IPL 2022.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Sunrisers Hyderabad joined the IPL in 2012 and played their first season in 2013. This gave them less time in the Indian Premier League than most other teams, but they have certainly used it well.

The SRH records show that the team has reached the playoff stage six times, leaving only three seasons where they didn’t manage to pass the league stage. It’s certainly a significant achievement, and an even bigger one is that they won the championship in 2016. They were also runner-ups in 2018.

Unfortunately, the SRH stats for last season (IPL 2021) were quite bad. The team ranked last in the league, writing down their worst score in the IPL. What’s more, they only managed to win three matches out of the 14 played, and their NRR was -0.545.

The Sunrisers are likely looking to make things better after such an abysmal score in 2021. The team has taken some drastic changes, as they’ve let go of two of the brightest stars on the team — Rashid Khan and David Warner.

They decided to create an entirely new team with many youngsters, all playing under the phenomenal Kane Williamson — New Zealand’s biggest star. The batting side of the team should be much better as Aidan Markram and Nicholas Pooran are playing, two Punjab King stars with great stats.

Besides that, the Sunrisers’ squad is all the richer with the incredibly fast Umran Malik, the great pacer Marco Jansen, and the talented Bhuvneshwar Kumar. However, it’s worth mentioning that this talented young squad could potentially be a bad idea as they are largely untested, at least when the domestic lineup is in question. If that weren’t enough, two top bowlers of the team, Natarajan and Bhuvneshwar, are prone to injuries, as seen from their history.

All of this, plus the terrible score from last year, are likely reasons why SRH IPL 2022 won’t be a likely champion and why most major sportsbooks gave them bad odds.
