It’s been a great 1 month of WT20 recently which provided us with great entertainment, some of the matches were breathtaking, edge of the seat thrillers.Before one would get there breath back, starts one of the biggest T20 entertainment the IPL 2016, As all know 8 teams participating in the tournament, exclusion of 2 power houses CSK & RR, has made way to 2 new teams RPS & GL, So it becomes difficult to assume, how the new teams will perform, how the players will jell together. It becomes very difficult for anyone to choose 1 team from the present 8 teams as they carry abundance of talent,still I would like to make few points or strategy which might be of some use to pick a particular team on a given day.
As a predictor we usually look at
1. Balance of team
2. Players in form
3. Previous head to head stats
4.Home pitch advantage or away performance
5.Experience of individual to carry the team through
6. Confidence level of players & team If someone asks me choose a team, it would be difficult to pick a particular team before the start of the tournament, but still if I had choose means I could like to be on safer side,I would choose RCB, now the question arises why RCB? This year they have made some clear moves which were missing in the previous edition, Formidable top order, with current hot form of Kohli,strengthening of middle order by inclusion of Watson and Binny, inclusion of spinners how could be economical on turning as well as on flat tracks ( Badree & Chahal), raw place of Aaron, This team looks to be suitable for all kind of wickets, has players who can tear apart the opposition single handedly, middle order has become more stable with inclusion of all rounders in form of Watson and Binny, So for me the team appears to be more balanced,most of the players r in form,etc Team to watch out for this season is ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE
