Didnt see any other thread open for IPL 2018 discussions. Really excited for this season considering Csk are back.Although, not sure if they have a strong squad to win it. Have a feeling DD or Punjab may surprise as they both after a long time have a stable and a strong squad. Warner would be a huge loss for srh , Can't see them repeating the feat of 2016. Rcb are unpredictable but I still see them missing out in top 4 unless woakes and other bowlers stand up and support kohli and abd. RR like Delhi and Punjab are dark horse but Smith will be a miss. Mumbai are like Chelsea, win one season and have a stinker next season but they like always have a strong squad, wont be surprised if they win again this year. Kkr look the weakest. Can see them finishing bottom of the pile. Starc injured, Russell and narine not in their greatest form and Lynn injury prone. Dinesh kartik needs to have a blinder for the sake of kkr. In sum, this season looks very open and could have a surprise winners.
