1. Gujarat Titans – Gujarat Titans have undoubtedly the best and the strongest squad in IPL 2022. They had great retention and despite being low on a budget in the Mega Auction, they were able to build the most powerful squad due to their cunning auction strategy. Titans are on top in IPL 2022 points table. They are performing consistently and have won 10 out of 14 matches. GT is the first team to qualify for IPL 2022 playoff.

The above-mentioned names are the key players in the GT squad and all of them are capable enough of delivering a match-winning performance.
The signing of Rashid Khan and Shubman Gill particularly has added a great deal of depth in the squad and they are expected to dominate in IPL 2022. Titans have also filled their ranks with Yash Dayal & Alzharri Joseph.
Lucknow Super Giants Chances To Win IPL 2022
Lucknow Super Giants – Like all 9 teams of IPL 2022, LSG had the 90 cr purse value ahead of IPL 2022 Mega Auction as they draft 3 players, and let’s just put it in this way they made full use of that massive purse value.
LSG has one of the strongest squads in IPL 2022 after GT and might even have the most balanced playing XI on paper. They have both a strong batting lineup and also a very strong bowling lineup.
D Chameera, Avesh Khan, M Stoinis, and Ravi Bishnoi make up one of the strongest bowling lineups in IPL 2022 while their batting lineup has T20 experts like KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock, Deepak Hooda, and Manish Pandey.
Lucknow Super Giants’ Differential Players in IPL 2022
Apart from the star players like Rahul, Quinton, and Avesh Khan LSG also signed some underrated gems like Ayush Badoni, D Chameera, and Bishnoi. The young uncapped player, Ayush has shown his class in some matches.
Our Prediction: It is true that both Gujarat Titans & Lucknow Super Giants are new teams but IPL 2022 might finally be their season. Their lack of title experience can not undermine the fact that they have two totally sensational squads.
Although both GT and LSG are equally capable of winning the title, we have to give a slight edge to Gujarat Titans just because of the fact that they have a slightly better squad and they have had a fantastic winning record this season so far.
Moreover, KL Rahul is a tested captain in the IPL unlike GT’s captain Hardik Pandya and this would give an advantage to LSG.
Gujarat’s performance in the tournament has been excellent so far, but Bangalore and Rajasthan are also strong contenders to win the title this year.
