Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders were the other two teams to book a place in the playoffs. However, they failed to reach the finals.
Meanwhile, it was a horrific season for Virat Kohli led Royal Challengers Bengaluru who finished bottom on the points table. They had only three wins from their 14 games. However, with a new team, they will be eager to come out all guns blazing in this edition.
Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils had an average season but failed to win matches at the business end of the tournament. They are also two of the few teams to not win the much-coveted title. They will have an eye this year to put a hand on the trophy.
