The start of the new IPL season is full of interesting matches, including last year’s finalists Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals. This match will be one of the opportunities for a successful bet this season, but to make this right bettors should find and use useful information as much, as they can.
Influence of team composition on matches
Despite the fact that the IPL is held every year, all teams participate in the auction. As part of the auction, the team can retain up to 4 players and acquire new ones. Thus, it affects the approach to fielding players on the field, as well as the use of strong players previously retained. Since the auction takes place a few months before the start of the matches, bettors have the opportunity to get acquainted with the new line-up and player data.
As an example, this year the Chennai Super Kings retained MS Dhoni, one of the most experienced players and captains who led the team to victory last year. In addition, the team has been supplemented by experienced players whose age in most is equal to or above 30 years old. This means that these players have a high level of skill as well as the ability to react to difficult situations on the field.
Also, do not forget about the human factor on the field. As an example above, the high age of the players has both its pros and cons. The higher the age, the more the player is prone to fatigue on the field (especially when it comes to long matches) and injuries. So, in the Delhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings match, there is a very high age difference between the players, since the DK got more young players as a result of the auction, who are not so experienced but can be physically more resilient.
No less important is the psychological factor – both an individual player and the team as a whole. Both teams are highly motivated in this match as they made it to last year’s final. DC is particularly focused on winning the IPL 2022 as they have all the stats they need to win and also want to take revenge on the last game. This detail is a significant impulse that can improve the mood and unite with one idea, which leads to an increase in the overall moral tone. In addition, individual events in the life of a particular player can both give an emotional outburst, and vice versa, depriving the desire to win.
The impact of randomness on the playing field and players
The effect of luck and chance can also affect the outcome of the match. So, one of the main elements of a cricket match is the draw – before the start of the match, a coin is tossed and the captain who guessed correctly earns the opportunity for his team to attack first. And this is just one example of how chance can influence the course of the game.
Even sudden changes in the weather can change the course of events. For example, wind speed or light rain affect the reaction of the players, change the state of the field and the pace of the game. It is for this reason that some bettors place bets on specific segments of the match or even study the weather during the days before the match.
If we collect all the factors above, then in order to make a successful bet, it is worth analyzing in detail everything that is available to obtain the maximum benefit.
