We are a nation of cricket crazy people. The sport is our religion we tend to follow it pretty dedicately. Cricket is one game that brings all the Indians closer to each other. But if Indian states play against each other, then there is no end to aggressive cheering even at homes.
Indian Premier League (T20) 2016 welcomes two new teams this year Gujarat Lions and Pune Rising Supergiants. It’s exciting to anticipate their performance given that they are a mixed bunch. Adding to that thought, here is a list of 5 T20 teams that are bound to do well this season:
Led by Suresh Raina, the western teams holds a lot of promise this year. With the newly-married Ravindra Jadeja and Dinesh Karthik, things do look bright for the team. Other powerful members are Aaron Finch, Brendon McCullum and Dale Steyn. Even though it is a temporary team in the league, it is still fun to see them perform and how!
The best thing about this team that it’s led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni! The cool-as-a-cucumber captain is in great form, along with Stephen Fleming who is an all-rounder himself! Other strong names attached to PRS are Kevin Pietersen, Ishant Sharma and Faf du Plessis.
This Rohit Sharma led team has always been strong. It has a fantastic line-up of players such as Lasith Malinga, Harbhajan Singh, Tim Southee and Jos Buttler. Let us see how the settled squad will perform in the upcoming matches good, we assume!
The Gautam Gambhir led team looks hard to stop from winning the trophy right now. With exceptional players such as Piyush Chawla, Manish Pandey and Robin Uthappa already on the team, KKR also acquired hard-hitting batsman like Colin Munro to add strength to their bench. Smart planning, we must say!
The team is led by “Bad Boy of Indian Cricket” Virat Kohli – who is having a dream run since the start of 2016. After his smashing performance at ICC World T20, it is obvious that the southern team is in pretty good hands. Other strong players in the team are AB de Villers, Shane Watson and Stuart Binny, along with Chris Gayle.
