The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League is all set to start on 9th April and fans are eagerly waiting for the season to begin.
Every team is looking strong before heading into the season and many cricket pundits started making their predictions for the season.
Former New Zealand cricketer and commenter, Scott Styris also made his prediction public. He ranked his teams in order.
Styris previously played for Deccan Chargers and Chennai Super Kings in IPL.
Although Styris played for CSK in IPL, he feels that Rohit-led Mumbai Indians will once again triumph and will defend the trophy once again for the third consecutive time.
Surprisingly he ranked Dhoni-led CSK at the bottom. CSK is arguably considered the strong team of IPL but they had a poor last season in late 2020 due to the absence of key players in the squad which includes Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh but both the players are returning this season and this will definitely impact the gameplay of CSK.
Here is the Scott Styris Prediction:

CSK replied to this Tweet As This and Styris apologized to CSK by sharing a GIF in his later Tweet.
