Commentators pick their top two teams for IPL 2023

Indian Premier League

The IPL has started in full swing from the 31st of March with everyone already having played their first matches.

While some have shown a solid all-round performance in the first game itself, the others have not been so lucky.

Furthermore, they have also showcased the strategies that they will be using throughout the IPL as well as their plans for winning the tournament.

On the other hand, the elite commentary panelists have also picked out their top 2 that can make it to the finals of the IPL.

Although it is still early days in the tournament, the panelists are pretty confident about their choices.

This season, Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore have been excellent in their first matches, both winning their respective games rather convincingly against their opponents.

Therefore, these two are looking tough to beat this season of the IPL and they can also enter the playoffs if they play in the same manner.

Let’s now take a look at the picks of the commentary panel.
