Indian T20 Premier League 2022 Team List




The current defending champions and the most successful team in the tournament, Mumbai, have been a force to reckon with. They have won the league a record five times, 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, Chennai 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 last season and with Shreyas Iyer at the helm, will want to go one step further.




The team from Hyderabad came into existence only in 2012 but had quickly found its bearings in the tournament. They won the Indian T20 premier league in 2016 and, with David Warner as captain, have been one of the most consistent teams in the tournament.




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 have not once made it to the final even once since. Can they up their performance a notch in the upcoming season?



With the kind of fire-power 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 has stepped down as captain and RCB are yet to announce their new skipper. Can their fortunes change in 2022? Only time will tell.




The Delhi team too have never really lived up to their potential. They have had some of the biggest names in world cricket, but Delhi has qualified for the final only once in all these years. It remains to be seen whether that changes in due course or not.




One of the weakest teams in the competition, Punjab have shown promise, but it has usually been short-lived. The team has finished in the bottom half of the points table every season, barring 2008 and 2014 and are usually considered the weakest of all sides.

There have been many names picked up during this year’s Indian T20 league auctions, and you should be well versed as to which players have gone to which team this season.




The state of Gujarat has produced some amazing cricketers over the years and to get started once again in the IPL 2022, the new owners drafted one of their own men in Hardik Pandya. Ahmedabad had an excellent IPL 2022 mega auction and will be one team to look forward to. They have appointed Gary Kirsten, as their head coach. Former England opener Vikram Solanki will be the team director, whilst Ashish Nehra will be the bowling coach.




Lucknow Supergiants, owned by the RPSG Ventures, is the other franchise that take part in the tournament. KL Rahul will be leading the franchise for their first-ever season, as confirmed by the team owner Sanjeev Goenka. Marcus Stoinis and Ravi Bishnoi were the other two players that Lucknow grabbed before the auction.

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.
