Indian T20 Premier League 2022 Team List

Indian T20 Premier League 2022 Team List:


The five-time defending champions and the most successful team in the tournament, Team Mumbai has been a force to reckon with. They have won the league in 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2020. Rohit Sharma has been the captain of Mumbai each time they have been crowned champions, and with him at the helm once again, the franchise will be keen on adding another trophy to its already studded cabinet.


Before Mumbai went on a winning spree, Chennai was the most successful team in the T20 league. Chennai has won the Indian T20 league four times – in 2010, 2011 and 2022. With MS Dhoni leading the way yet again, Chennai had qualified for the playoffs every season they were a part of up until 2020 (Chennai was banned for two years in 2016 & 2017). 


Kolkata is third in terms of the most successful franchise in the Indian T20 Premier League. They won the coveted title twice – in 2012 and 2014, both times under the leadership of Gautam Gambhir. There has been a slight blip in their form over the last few years, but they are still very much a force to reckon with. Kolkata were the runners up in 2021 before the franchise brought in Shreyas Iyer at the helm. With him injured now, Nitish Rana will lead the side in 2023.


The team from Hyderabad came into existence only in 2012 but quickly found its bearings in the tournament. They won the Indian T20 premier league in 2016 and, with David Warner as captain. However, the team has undergone various changes with Warner and Kane Williamson, two of their most successful batsmen, now out of the side. South Africa’s Aiden Markram will lead them.


The team from Rajasthan have been the perennial underdogs since the start of the Indian T20 League. They won the inaugural edition of the tournament in 2008 but did not once made it to the final until 2022. They will be led by Sanju Samson once again as they look to repeat their performance.


With the kind of firepower Bangalore have had over the years, it is indeed a surprise that they do not have a single Indian t20 trophy to their name yet. In all these years, Bangalore, led by Virat Kohli, looks like a side that will certainly lift the title. But they haven’t. Kohli stepped down from the captaincy role with RCB announcing Faf du Plessis as their new skipper. The South African led the side to the playoffs in 2022 and will look to get one step further this time around.


The Delhi team has never really lived up to their potential. They have had some of the biggest names in world cricket but never won the title. Having qualified for the knockout stages three years in a row, Team Delhi finally finished fifth last season. They will be without skipper Rishabh Pant this season as well.


Team Punjab is one of the weakest teams in the competition, which has shown promise repeatedly but has usually been short-lived. The team has finished in the bottom half of the points table every season, barring 2008 and 2014 and is usually considered the weakest of all sides. An experienced Shikhar Dhawan will look to change fortunes of Punjab this time.


The defending champions will look to repeat the feat after shocking one and all last season. The new owners had drafted one of their own men in Hardik Pandya in 2022, and he did a fabulous job to lift the title and become India’s T20I captain.


Lucknow Supergiants, owned by the RPSG Ventures, had a promising opening season in IPL 2022 where they reached the playoffs. KL Rahul’s captaincy was an influencing factor for their first-ever season and the underperforming Indian batsman will be looking to shake off the jitters to early on.

Tips & Tricks to play Indian T20 fantasy cricket

Building a fantasy team is like any other task you take up in life. It requires meticulous planning, research, and time. Each player has his own set of skills, and you need to be mindful of the same. Here are a few tips and tricks to play the Indian T20 fantasy league on MPL.

  • Make the team pertaining to the Indian fantasy league: A lot of the players like Kagiso Rabada, David Warner, Steve Smith might be lethal in their home country, but it becomes a different ball-game in India. Always pick a player in your fantasy side that is expected to come good in Indian conditions. Check the performance of each player, even the domestic ones. You never know who can come good on a given day in the cricket T20 league.
  • Be mindful of the conditions: The conditions also play a massive role in deciding how a player will perform on a given day. If the overhead conditions are cloudy and it is a cold, wet day, always go for pacers in your team. In case of a hot and humid day, the pitch is likely to flatten out, and that will mean runs in abundance for batsmen. The venue where the match is being played should also be taken into account when setting up your fantasy team.
  • Research the uncapped players: Sometimes, the unknown entities are the ones that make the biggest statements. Whenever you select players, always keep one or two uncapped players in your fantasy XI as you never know who can turn out to be a trump card on the given day and turn the game on its head.
  • Choose your captain and vice captain wisely: You should be very careful while choosing the captain and vice captain as they give your 2x and 1.5 x the points, respectively. Your captain and vice captain more often than not define the outcome of your fantasy cricket team. Choose players who are likely to give you points in more than one facet of the game, such as an all rounder or wicket keeper.
