Top 10 teams of the new IPL season

For all intents and purposes, each of the ten groups has been placed into two gatherings – comprising Group A and Group B. In Group A- there are teams Mumbai Indians (MI), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Rajasthan Royals (RR), Delhi Capitals (DC), and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), while in Group B, Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Punjab Kings (PBKS), and Gujarat Titans (GT) have been added.

Let us take a sneak peek at all these teams:

1. Punjab Kings (PBKS)

[Spent: 47.55 Crore| Purse Left: 45 Lakh | Squad: 25/25 | Overseas: Players 7/8, Indian Players: 18]

Batters: Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal, Prerak Mankad, Bhanuka Rajapaksa

Bowlers: Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh, Sandeep Sharma, Ishan Porel, Rahul Chahar, Vaibhav Arora, Nathan Ellis.

Strengths: Good mix of accumulators and power hitters. Mayank Agarwal and Shikhar Dhawan offer solidity at the top. In Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, and Odean Smith, Punjab have the potential to be the best six-hitting side of the season.

Weaknesses: Onus on Rahul Chahar to do the heavy lifting in the spin department.

2. Mumbai Indians (MI)

[Spent: 47.90 Crore| Purse Left: 10 Lakh | Squad: 25/25 | Overseas: Players 7/8, Indian Players: 14]

Bowlers: Jasprit Bumrah, Basil Thampi, Murugan Ashwin, Jaydev Unadkat, Mayank Markande, Tymal Mills, Jofra Archer, Riley 

Meredith, Mohd Arshad Khan.

Strengths: Have retained most of the successful batsmen from past seasons. Skipper Rohit Sharma will open with Ishan Kishan while the middle order will have Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard & Tim David. Bumrah is the pace ace.

Weaknesses: No Trent Boult, Quinton de Kock, Rahul Chahar or Pandya brothers, who were all instrumental in Mumbai winning the title in 2020 in the UAE.

Strengths: Rashid Khan and skipper Hardik Pandya’s broad bat.

Weaknesses: Batting looks thin. Too dependent on allrounders. Will Pandya be fit to bowl or even lead in all of the games?

Bowlers: Josh Hazlewood, Mohammed Siraj, Jason Behrendorff, Chama Milind, Karan Sharma, Siddharth Kaul.

Strengths: Freed of the captaincy, Virat Kohli will be itching to make runs. Have done well to acquire Du Plessis, who is now the leading captaincy contender.
