Its been a little over two weeks since the Indian Premier League began this year and we’ve had so much drama already. About 11 games played so far in this season and we’ve had about 3-4 close finishes and most importantly 2 super overs. There is just has been so much drama and so much more to expect this year.
Despite it being just a week since the IPL, cricket pundits, experts and former players have started predicting the top four of this season based on the performance of teams this season. This time it’s former Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne who has predicted his top 4 teams for this season.

Shane Warne feels this year Rajasthan Royals, Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals will qualify for the playoffs since he finds all these four deserving and at the same time, all these sides are very balanced in their combination.
“Four teams, Rajasthan Royals. I think it’s hard to go past Chennai Super Kings, they will always be there or thereabouts. I think Mumbai Indians will be there too, they have got a very well-balanced squad and the fourth spot, I will probably have to lean towards Delhi Capitals.
DC has got a lot of firepowers so I think they’ll be the fourth team,” said Warne as quoted by Hindustan Times.
The former Royals skipper Shane Warner also hopes that Sanju Samson is a consistent performer this year. He further said how he will soon be playing all three forms of cricket for India very soon.
“I hope Sanju has a consistent tournament this year. If he has a consistent tournament this year, I think you will see him representing India in all forms of the game,” he added.
