The first three weeks of the Indian Premier League has been a treat for all cricket fans around the world. It is safe to say that the biggest cricket league in the world has got an ideal start. IPL. 2020 has successfully stepped into the fourth week of action. Most teams look settled and well-acclimatized.

Last-ball thrillers, one-sided contests, super overs as well as monumental comebacks- the league has seen it all and we’re done with just three weeks! This edition of the league has been very unpredictable. Teams looking better on paper haven’t necessarily gone on to win the games.

Many teams, who were supposed to perform well, failed to do so. Many teams, who were estimated to have a bad season, have managed to prove their critics wrong. Teams look to try out different combinations to see which suits them better before the business end of the tournament. A few teams have already shown their potential to adapt to different situations and found success.

In this article, we shall be rating all the teams based on their performance in the first three weeks:

It is safe to say that Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) have been the worst team of IPL 2020 so far. They have had a rather forgettable three weeks. Nothing seems to be working for them at the moment and they have managed to win just one out of their seven matches.

What’s shocking is that both the leading run-getters of IPL 2020 so far have been batsman from KXIP. KL Rahul and Mayank Aggarwal have scored a lot of runs but just can’t seem to get their team over the line. Mohammed Shami has been sensational for them as well. It’s still hard to answer why KXIP are struggling at the bottom of the table.

Their team management just don’t seem to trust their team combination and keep on changing their playing XI. Luck hasn’t favored them too. They lost a few games which they should have comfortably won. Only a miracle can see KXIP make the top four.
