Each team is competitive in the Indian Premier League. Every season of IPL has a different story altogether. If one team is at the top of the table this season, they might finish last in the next one. It has a lot to do with the trading system as well. The players are traded every season and can change the dynamics completely. One great example is Glenn Maxwell to RCB from PBKS this season.
Most of the teams are dependent on a couple of players. When they don’t turn up well, it’s very difficult to cope up with consistency. When Andre Russell and Dinesh Karthik struggled last season, KKR couldn’t qualify for the Playoffs even though they had a solid team.
But there are times when teams are just about perfect. There’s hardly anything wrong with the team and if one key player doesn’t step up, someone else will.
Here are such IPL playing XIs from the past that looked completely invincible:
1. Mumbai Indians (IPL 2020)
Mumbai Indians has always been a really strong team. They have had a couple of players who have served the team for a long time. Kieron Pollard, Rohit Sharma, and Lasith Malinga are some of those names.
But they have never had a team just as good on paper and the field like they did last season. Rohit Sharma missed out on a couple of games and Mumbai still looked undefeatable. Pollard was the apt player to lead the team and he did a good job.
Players like Quinton De Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan were on top of the run-getters list. While Bumrah, Boult were in the hold for the Purple Cap all the time. Pandya brothers added spice to the mix and Pollard was at his vintage best himself.
