Former Indian cricketer Ajit Agarkar has expressed his views on the current standings of the top teams in the ongoing 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 so far in the UAE.
According to Agarkar, Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians are the two best teams in the ongoing IPL 2020 so far and are top contenders for the trophy this season in the UAE.
At the moment, MI and DC are the top two placed teams in the IPL 13 points table with 10 points from seven matches.
The former pacer was also confident that the MI, DC, and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will qualify for the playoffs while saying the fourth place will be taken by Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Agarkar said on Star Sports show ‘Cricket Connected’: “It’s such a close tournament, so many ups, and downs, but clearly Mumbai Indians & Delhi Capitals look like the two best teams – form-wise and personnel-wise. KKR, in my opinion, got a real bonus win against CSK. They are my third team. The fourth team for me is between Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad. I had CSK at the start of the tournament, but at the moment, these two teams look slightly better than what CSK is playing.”
Meanwhile, former England spinner Graeme Swann also believes that the SRH will qualify for the playoffs of IPL 2020, saying: “I’m definitely going with SRH cause Jonny Bairstow not only looks dapper with his ginger hair and the orange shirt, amazing, it shouldn’t go, but it does, but he’s also smashing it.”
Swann signed off by saying, “And my fourth team is going more with my heart than my head, Rajasthan Royals, Tewatia hit 5 sixes off that over and I fell for the Rajasthan Royals. They’ve lost all 3 games, they cannot get any worse. Ben Stokes is coming back. They are going to qualify.”
