David Hussey, chief mentor of the Indian Premier League (IPL) side Kolkata Knight Riders has said that he doesn't have a favourite as every squad is "really talented" and has the capability to win the tournament. Hussey, while talking to the press said that he does not think there is any particular franchise as clear favourite in IPL 2020 as every team is "really really talented" and has some very good players, both domestic and overseas. 

The former Australian cricketer further added that the upcoming edition is going to be really difficult for some of the players because of the long coronavirus-induced break. Hussey said that many players are training after four to five months of break and will play in a foreign condition too, which might affect their game.
