  • Middle order- Russell, DK, Morgan....as scary as any 
  • Good Indian bowling option with solid backups
  • Good spin attack- Narine, Shakib, VArun, Bhajji, Kuldeep 
  • Morgan the captain 




  • Lacks firepower in Top 3
  • Rana n tripathi will be batting in top 3 and they many weaknesses but then again in t20 u can get away
  • Lack of experience in Indian fast bowling 
  • Kuldeep form
  • Lack of good Indian batting options
  • Narine becoming 
  • Cummins isnt great at death, Lockie not at start




  • For DK to claim the spot in indian t20 side
  • Same for Rana and gill
  • Prasidh to go on next level 
  • Mavi n nagarkotti to pay off faith shown by KKR 
  • Shakib to announce his return
  • Morgan to own IPL 




  • Russell fitness
  • DK batting spot 
  • Gill's Start 
  • Varun.C second season test 
  • Russell weakness was found last season

Gill is big problem at top of the order unless he starts treating IPL as a T20 game rather than as ODI.


His strike rate (117) was like Rahane or probably even worse . KKR tried hitter in Banton but he failed in conditions very different to him.


Too add to opening issues of Gill, Tripathi joined Gill by playing at below par strike rate of 127.


I am surprised with Baz in the camp how is he allowing such mediocre approach by top order batsmen in power plays.



Pace bowling is a worry. Only 36 wickets were taken by pace attack comprising of Cummins, Prasidh, Mavi, Fergusson , Nagarkoti and Warrier. Pacers need to drastically improve their wicket taking performance this time.

Hope to see Venkat Iyer opening alongside Gill. Morgan & Baz should back this young duo this year to deliver. There is enough batting depth to make amends in case of failures.

Also Vaibhav Arora looks good, should definitely get a chance.

Most importantly I am looking forward to Kuldeep getting back in the reckoning. I have my doubts about Varun's success this year, batsmen will come out prepared.
