Seriously Delhi looks strong. Look at this line up. This is my line up for the first game of Delhi.

 

Gambhir

Roy

Pant

Munro

Maxwell(Spin option at Kotla)/Iywr depending on combo

Morris(Allrounder)

VijayShankar(Allrounder)

Rabada(Bowler who can hit)

Mishra

Avesh 

Shami/Nadeem/Boult. depending on the conditons and where we are playing. Boult can play to drop Munro or Maacwell. Still batting remains solid.

 

Strong team. Thats one crazy battinf line up of hitters and great bowling strength.

Agree mostly. DD seems to be the strongest squad on paper.. Some very exciting players..

 

CSK fortunately had a better Day 2 of auctions.. Have a lot of back-ups.. Hope Dhoni uses them well for different conditions, instead of playing with the XI every time. Very excited about Santner (I know he won't get a lot of games, but was very impressed with his performance in the T20 WC and the Ind-NZ tour. He is handy with the bat as well)

 

Rooting for CSK (as usual), DD (for the awesome talent) and KXIP (for Ashwin.. well, he is family)

Yes depending on combo, I would leave out Maxwell or Munro and play Iyer or Boult, whateve required.

 

Rabada play most games as our bowler.

Best team is Sunrisers Hyderabad.

 

Very balanced lineup. Bat deep, lots of flexibility in bowling, and a proven combination of players.

 

Warner is a top 3 batsman every single year. Bhuvneshwar kumar is a top 3 bowler every single year.

 

They know how to win games, they'll be really difficult to beat.

 

 

Making gambhir captain is a good move. Dilli needed indian leadership, and the most successful teams usually have strong indian leadership. But this team wont win the league, its a brand new team and they havent played together. Combination ka kuch pata nahin

 

 

 

Yeah, time will decide. Delhi had a good side in the first couple of seasons in IPl and we did well but could not win it all. I am sure we will reach the playoffs. Who does what during playoffs no one knows. I do feel gambhir will keep the team together. We needed someone.

 

I hope DD management doesn’t surprise us and come up with a new captain. Can’t imagine anyone other than Gambhir.

Dravid isnt the coach anymore.  he resigned after conflict of interest allegations and is full time India A and U19 coach now.

DD fast bowling looks a million dollars

but they dont any good Indian fast bowler. Shami has never been good in IPL, has been worse than Umesh and Aaron in IPL and other Indians like Avesh are unproven.

My analysis on just their weakness

 

1. DD very little. Probably main is  1 death bowler specialist with Boult. And a relatively inexperienced middle order trio.

2. SRH again very little. Probably their lack of finishers, and little firepower other than Warner will hurt them

3. KKR not much either. But new captain and leader is key. Only 1 all rounder

4. CSK is a case of are they still good enough? They lack any firepower. they aren't going to get aggressive starts and don't have good seam bowling attack. A lot of out-of-form players

5. RCB, they dont have a go-to bowler at death overs. And they don't have any quality batsman at lower order particularly if their top order collapses

6. MI. Just one quality top order batsman Rohit. Cummins is a bad buy, he has no defensive yorker. And they also have no quality spinners.

7. KXIP, again lack of leadership and captaincy brains. Their middle order batsman are out-of form and have a non-existent fast bowling attack.

8. RR, too many one-season wonders. No quality spinners, and fast bowlers either. Far too many weakness in this team especially if your 2nd best Indian is Unadkat and he will be leading your bowling attack. It's asking for troubles.

Morris is a gun death bowler and I think Rabada can do the job too with his inswinging Yorkers. Their middle order includes Iyer, Maxwell, Pant and Morris. I don't see many middle orders better than this for a T20 game.

Contrary to the belief,i think MI have the best team followed by DD. This time around there's no team that's gonna runaway and leave behind the rest .

csk have an old team and they'll be heavily reliant on their bowling especially bravo and wood. 

My predictions for play offs 

MI,DD,SRH

My analysis of the teams.

Quote

Chennai Super Kings

Total players: 25
Number of overseas players: 8

Openers: Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson, M Vijay
Middle-order batsmen: Suresh Raina, Kedar Jadhav, Ambati Rayudu, Chaitanya Bishnoi, Sam Billings, Dhruv Shorey
Wicketkeepers: MS Dhoni, J Narayan
Allrounders: Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Monu Kumar Singh, Kshitiz Sharma
Wristspinners: Karn Sharma, Imran Tahir
Fingerspinners: Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell Santner
Fast bowlers: Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, KM Asif, Kanishk Seth, Mark Wood, Lungi Ngidi

Possible starting XI: 1 Shane Watson/Faf du Plessis, 2 M Vijay, 3 Suresh Raina, 4 Kedar Jadhav, 5 MS Dhoni (capt & wk), 6 Ravindra Jadeja, 7 Dwayne Bravo, 8 Harbhajan Singh, 9 Shardul Thakur, 10 Imran Tahir, 11 Lungi Ngidi/Mark Wood

Overall their bowling looks stronger than batting this time

Key Factor: A lot is going to depend upon Raina's form as you feel a lack of firepower in the batting. 

Weakness: Watson is not really the force he was and batting order of Vijay/Dhoni/Rayudu/Jadhav has a lot of question marks. 

Strength:  Spin bowling.  They have complete spin attack. Bhajji is still a very effective T20 bowler and Tahir in form (If not Karn can step in who has been taking a lot of wickets) Sharma would be great. Dhoni is the best spin bowling captain ever and if they prepare spin pitches that may their way into playoffs. They have a decent pace attack also. 

Smart Picks: Bhajji, Deepak Chahar, Asif, Wood, Ngidi  

No so smart Picks?: Jadhav

Delhi Daredevils

Total players: 25
Number of overseas players: 8

Openers: Colin Munro, Jason Roy, Gautam Gambhir, Prithvi Shaw, Manjot Kalra
Middle-order batsmen: Shreyas Iyer, Glenn Maxwell
Wicketkeeper: Rishabh Pant, Naman Ojha
Allrounders: Chris Morris, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Gurkeerat Singh, Daniel Christian
Wristspinners: Amit Mishra, Rahul Tewatia, Sandeep Lamichhane
Fingerspinners: Jayant Yadav, Shahbaz Nadeem
Fast Bowlers: Harshal Patel, Mohammed Shami, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan, Trent Boult, Sayan Ghosh

Posible starting XI: 1 Colin Munro/Jason Roy, 2 Gautam Gambhir (capt), 3 Shreyas Iyer, 4 Rishabh Pant (wk), 5 Glenn Maxwell, 6 Vijay Shankar, 7 Chris Morris, 8 Shahbaz Nadeem/Jayant Yadav, 9 Amit Mishra, 10 Kagiso Rabada/Trent Boult, 11 Mohammed Shami

Key Factor: They have potentially a lot of X factors with the likes of Maxwell,Pant, Munro, Roy, Rabada, Boult, Shami, Morris, Mishra. But these kind of players are very hit or miss. Maxwell had a great year followed by an average one. So a lot depends on how many of these shine among the more reliable/anchor players like Gambhir, Shaw, Nadeem

Weakness: Experience which can be handy when in playoffs so a lot depends on Gambhir

Strength:  Top order explosive players (Kishan, PAnt, Roy) and Fast bowling. They will prefere a spicy pitch for likes of Rabada,Boult,Shami,Avesh 

Smart Picks: Rabada, Shankar, Gambhir , Shaw, Avesh, Roy

Not So Smart Picks?: Tewatia

Kings XI Punjab

Total players: 21
Number of overseas players: 7

Openers: Aaron Finch, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle
Middle-order batsmen: Karun Nair, Yuvraj Singh, David Miller, Manoj Tiwary
Wicketkeepers: Akshdeep Nath
Allrounders: Axar Patel, Marcus Stoinis, Manzoor Dar
Wristspinners: Mujeeb Zadran, Pardeep Sahu
Fingerspinners: R Ashwin, Mayank Dagar
Fast bowlers: Ankit Rajpoot, Mohit Sharma, Barinder Sran, Andrew Tye, Ben Dwarshuis

Possible starting XI: 1 KL Rahul (wk), 2 Aaron Finch/Chris Gayle, 3 Karun Nair, 4 Yuvraj Singh, 5 David Miller, 6 Marcus Stoinis, 7 Axar Patel, 8 R Ashwin (capt), 9 Mohit Sharma, 10 Andrew Tye, 11 Ankit Rajpoot/Barinder Sran

This is one of the teams that feels incomplete and I think they overpaid for a couple of players which got them short in the end. 

Key Factor: This is going to be test of Rahul and Nair as top level players. Team is going to depend fully on them with likes of Yuvraj, Gayle now on the wane. A lot will depend on how good Stoinis and Miller in the middle order. 

Weakness: Bowling does not feel like a complete unit yet which can take a lot of wickets. Mohit and Ashwin are not top level T20 bowlers right now and they are depending a lot of Guys like Tye and Axar 

Strength:  Decent Middle order of Nair, miller and Stoinis who is in great hitting form. 

Smart Picks: Stoinis, Nair, Miller, Tiwary, Mayank

Not So Smart Picks?: 12.5 crores for Axar Patel

Kolkata Knight Riders

Total players: 19
Number of overseas players : 7

Openers: Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Cameron Delport
Middle-order batsmen: Shubman Gill, Ishank Jaggi, Nitish Rana, Apoorv Wankhade, Rinku Singh
Wicketkeepers: Dinesh Karthik
Allrounders: Andre Russell, Javon Searles
Wristspinners: Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav
Fingerspinners: Sunil Narine
Fast bowlers: Mitchell Starc, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi, Vinay Kumar, Mitchell Johnson

Possible starting XI: 1 Chris Lynn, 2 Shubman Gill, 3 Robin Uthappa (capt), 4 Dinesh Karthik (wk), 5 Nitish Rana, 6 Andre Russell, 7 Piyush Chawla/Ishank Jaggi, 8 Sunil Narine, 9 Mitchell Starc, 10 Kuldeep Yadav, 11 Kamlesh Nagarkoti/Shivam Mavi/Vinay Kumar

Key Factor: They have made a big call of dropping Gambhir and now they depend on likes of Uthappa and Karthik to carry this team. It is going to be very interesting as these two have always failed to graduate to the next level and it is not like they are young potential (like in case of Pandey, Nair, Rahul) so there is not going to be a dramatic improvement.  

Weakness: Batting. They really will be hoping Lynn and Russell have a very good season else they will struggle to put up big scores. 

Strength:  Bowling overall looks very promising and possibly best unit if all are fit. Kuldeep, Narine and Starc are topmost bowlers in this form. Chawla has done well and they have very exciting duo of Nagarkoti and Mavi

Smart Picks: Gill, Mavi, Nagarkoti

Not So Smart Picks?: No one but they actually have a very small squad

Mumbai Indians

Total players: 25
Number of overseas players: 8

Openers: Evin Lewis Middle-order batsmen: Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, JP Duminy, Siddhesh Lad, Sharad Lumba
Wicketkeepers: Ishan Kishan, Aditya Tare
Allrounders: Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Ben Cutting, Tajinder Singh
Wristspinners: Mayank Markande, Rahul Chahar
Fingerspinners: Anukul Roy, Akila Dananjaya
Fast bowlers: Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman, Pat Cummins, Pradeep Sangwan, Jason Behrendorff, MD Nidheesh, Mohsin Khan

Possible starting XI: 1 Evin Lewis, 2 Ishan Kishan (wk), 3 Rohit Sharma (capt), 4 Suryakumar Yadav, 5 Kieron Pollard, 6 Hardik Pandya, 7 Krunal Pandya, 8 Ben Cutting/Akila Dananjaya/Mustafizur Rahman, 9 Pat Cummins, 10 Rahul Chahar, 11 Jasprit Bumrah

Key Factor: They have a decent squad and I think it is better than one that won last time (They have the best retentions). Key is for the young picks like Lewis and Kishan to pick up. Last year's success was built around Bumrah and Pandya brothers and their form is going to be key.   

Weakness: Spin bowling is very untested and they would rely on likes of Cummins, Bumrah and Fizz to take wickets. 

Strength:  Pandya brothers - These two guys have potential to be together in Indian team. Krunal batted better than Hardik last year and Hardik has got lot more exposure. They also have the best T20 bowler in Bumrah. 

Smart Picks: Cummins, Fizz, Sangwan

Not So Smart Picks?: No one

Rajasthan Royals

Total players: 23
Number of overseas players: 8

Openers: Ajinkya Rahane, D'Arcy Short, Rahul Tripathi
Middle-order batsmen: Steven Smith, Aryaman Birla
Wicketkeepers: Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Prashant Chopra
Allrounders: Ben Stokes, Stuart Binny, Jofra Archer, K Gowtham, Jatin Saxena, Mahipal Lomror
Wristspinners: Zahir Khan, Shreyas Gopal, Midhun S
Fingerspinners: Ankit Sharma
Fast bowlers: Anureet Singh, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni, Dushmantha Chameera, Ben Laughlin

Possible starting XI: 1 Ajinkya Rahane, 2 Rahul Tripathi, 3 Steven Smith (capt), 4 Sanju Samson, 5 Jos Buttler (wk), 6 Ben Stokes, 7 Jofra Archer, 8 K Gowtham, 9 Shreyas Gopal/Ankit Sharma/Mahipal Lomror, 10 Jaydev Unadkat, 11 Dhawal Kulkarni

Key Factor: Can Rahane and Smith be top level T20 players. Likes of Smason, buttler and Stokes have to come in earlier and have bigger impact on the game. also can you build a bowling attack around Unadkat and Kulkarni. 

Weakness: Bowling feels little incomplete and likes of Unadkat have to really justify their status. 

Strength: Middle order of Stokes, Samson, Buttler

Smart Picks: Buttler, 

Not So Smart Picks?: Unadkat

Royal Challengers Bangalore

Total players: 24
Number of overseas players: 8

Openers: Brendon McCullum, Manan Vohra
Middle-order batsmen: Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Sarfaraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, Pavan Deshpande
Wicketkeepers: Quinton de Kock, Parthiv Patel
Allrounders: Moeen Ali, Colin de Grandhomme, Chris Woakes, Aniruddha Joshi
Wristspinners: Yuzvendra Chahal, M Ashwin
Fingerspinners: Washington Sundar, Pawan Negi
Fast bowlers: Kulwant Khejroliya, Umesh Yadav, Aniket Choudhary, Navdeep Saini, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Mohammad Siraj, Tim Southee

Possible starting XI: 1 Brendon McCullum/Quinton de Kock, 2 Manan Vohra/Parthiv Patel (wk), 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 Sarfaraz Khan, 5 AB de Villiers, 6 Moeen Ali/Colin de Grandhomme/Chris Woakes, 7 Washington Sundar, 8 Yuzvendra Chahal, 9 Umesh Yadav, 10 Nathan Coulter-Nile/Tim Southee, 11 Mohammad Siraj/Aniket Choudhary/Navdeep Saini

Key Factor: Can Indian batsmen step up to support Kohli. Sarfaraz, Manan, Mandeep have a big role to play. 

Weakness: Fast bowling has promising names but are they best for this format especially for Chinnaswamy. Saini, Aniket, Yadav are promising bowlers but you wonder if they will get carted around on flat pitches. 

Strength: Kohli and AB and the best batsmen in the world and team will rely a lot on them. They have a good spin attack this time with Chahal getting good support from Sundar and M Ashwin. Bangalore lately has aided spin little more off late and it may be a good thing for them. 

Smart Picks: Chahal, Sundar, Saini, Siraj, Khejroliya

Not So Smart Picks?: They have been smarter this time with not overpaying for anyone. Woakes is only risk they took.

Key Factor: Big opportunity for Pandey and his chance to show he is one of the best. Their bowling is more untested and likes of Thampi, Khaleel need to step up at big stage. 

Weakness: Middle order does not look very strong  

Strength: They have two of the best playes in Warner and Bhuvi who won them the cup some time back. 

Smart Picks: Khaleel, Williamson, Brathwaite, Shakib, Thampi

Not So Smart Picks?: No one

Your bowlers will go for runs. Even mishra is wicket taker but can leak runs.

 

but more obvious, is your middle order. The indian trio are all inexperienced, no international pedigree. And maxwell, morris arent be your key batsman. There batting is not consistent at all.

7. Mumbai indians

27073100_1650954041633017_35868595000602

 

Starting Lineup Mumbai Indians- 
Lewis, Kishen, Rohit , Pollard, duminy , Krunal, hardik , chahar, cummins, bumrah, sanghwan

I think Cutting is better option than Duminy. he can score quick 25-30 runs & can bowl 2-3 overs in middle. he can bowl 2-3 overs as good as Sangwan if not better.

 

Cutting for Duminy & SKY for Sangwan. that will make both batting & bowling even stronger.

 

With 6 proper bowlers (excluding Pollard) Rohit can manage 20 overs. there are going to be few bad high scoring overs, which they have to manage by scoring more runs with long batting line up.

 

I am happy with the way MI Playing 11 is looking :nice:

 

Duminy, Mustafiz, Jason & Tare are back up players.

 

plus

 

Unsold players = back up :winky:

Why do you need backup? You can easily call any unsold player to replace injured one for the season.

Delhi as always looks strong on paper but wait dravid will screw them, out of all those IPL seasons this csk attack with lungi wood and asif looks strong, batting apart from billings is lol,rest are all OK, just can't wait for IPL gonna be best IPL season ever I guess.
A) Dravid is not the coach ponting is.
B) gambhir is the captain and that has been made clear, that is why he asked kkr not to RTM him.

My analysis of the teams.

 

Delhi Daredevils

Total players: 25
Number of overseas players: 8

Openers: Colin Munro, Jason Roy, Gautam Gambhir, Prithvi Shaw, Manjot Kalra
Middle-order batsmen: Shreyas Iyer, Glenn Maxwell
Wicketkeeper: Rishabh Pant, Naman Ojha
Allrounders: Chris Morris, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Gurkeerat Singh, Daniel Christian
Wristspinners: Amit Mishra, Rahul Tewatia, Sandeep Lamichhane
Fingerspinners: Jayant Yadav, Shahbaz Nadeem
Fast Bowlers: Harshal Patel, Mohammed Shami, Kagiso Rabada, Avesh Khan, Trent Boult, Sayan Ghosh

Posible starting XI: 1 Colin Munro/Jason Roy, 2 Gautam Gambhir (capt), 3 Shreyas Iyer, 4 Rishabh Pant (wk), 5 Glenn Maxwell, 6 Vijay Shankar, 7 Chris Morris, 8 Shahbaz Nadeem/Jayant Yadav, 9 Amit Mishra, 10 Kagiso Rabada/Trent Boult, 11 Mohammed Shami

Key Factor: They have potentially a lot of X factors with the likes of Maxwell,Pant, Munro, Roy, Rabada, Boult, Shami, Morris, Mishra. But these kind of players are very hit or miss. Maxwell had a great year followed by an average one. So a lot depends on how many of these shine among the more reliable/anchor players like Gambhir, Shaw, Nadeem
Weakness: Experience which can be handy when in playoffs so a lot depends on Gambhir
Strength:  Top order explosive players (Kishan, PAnt, Roy) and Fast bowling. They will prefere a spicy pitch for likes of Rabada,Boult,Shami,Avesh 
Smart Picks: Rabada, Shankar, Gambhir , Shaw, Avesh, Roy
Not So Smart Picks?: Tewatia
 
his domestic stats are good. 6d539163005bc22a01d277217128132a.jpg8fb2e9f0be369cc4a2cbf04f279c8b7b.jpg

Cutting has barely bowled in BBL. He has batted at 6. He has bowled 5-6 overs whole BBL.

yeah at 6 he was their 4th top run scorer with 192 runs at 152 SR in 9 innings. SR was 2nd best after Lynn's 162.

 

in 15 overs he took 5 wickets with ER of 10.

 

ER was very high but i feel that coach & team management should think or work with him to make him more economical & take advantage of his fast bowling in teams favour.

Your bowlers will go for runs. Even mishra is wicket taker but can leak runs.

 

but more obvious, is your middle order. The indian trio are all inexperienced, no international pedigree. And maxwell, morris arent be your key batsman. There batting is not consistent at all.

Morris, Rabada, Shami, Mishra and Nadeem is one of the best attack in this IPL. Everybody goes for runs in T20 but you can't find a better attack than this one. How many teams have experienced Indian middle order batsman? Pant and Iyer are very talented and both played extremely well last season. Vijay Shankar is one of the best batsman in Indian domestic circuit. DD has at least 4 batsmen that can decide the game on their own : Roy/Munro, Pant, Maxwell and Morris. No other team has this sort of explosive batting line up.

You should check their economy rates.  They are primary attacking bowlers, and don't really have the defensive yorkers in their core bowling. Your bowling attack can leak runs. And I have put DD as the best team on paper so it's not like I don't rate DD. Just one or two weakness pointed out, and you can't digest it.
