who will win ipl 2018 – ipl 2018 match prediction
IPL 2018 will see fresh teams after one of the biggest auctions since the tournament’s inception took place in January. However, the strangest thing is that despite the reshuffling of players, the relative strengths of teams remained more or less the same. The Impact rankings of teams remained similar to what it was in the past. SRH, KKR and CSK did exceedingly well. RCB did a little better than previous years, while MI surprisingly slid a bit, despite retaining many of their key players. RR dramatically changed its slant of being a “smart buyer” of cost-effective players and bought some of the most expensive players this year, but consequently did not get their balance entirely right. DD continued making the same mistakes of the past.
The biggest mistake made by some teams was their continued preference of batting talent over bowling talent. Impact Index’s previous studies (one published in our book Numbers Do Lie) have shown that T20 teams with stronger bowling teams invariably do better than batting-heavy sides, and a couple of others have recently alluded to this too. Yet, DD completely messed up on this count, and ended up with the poorest bowling attack in the tournament, undoing a lot of the good work they did otherwise in the auction. Similarly, MI have slid from their pre-eminent position in the last few IPLs purely because of their mediocre bowling picks this time.
chennai super kings
kolkata knight riders
strong points of team
might get position of csk with their best balling line up and opening pair(edit:without warner not so),they were strong before this year also. And they became more powerful with improved middle order and all rounders like pandey, saha, williamson, morgan,they would crack playoffs. But at last they lose Warner which is big blow for them. So they are 5th.
1.chennai/srh:(a) chennai:with qtality spin and experienced batsman and magician skipper, they would be most powerful in home slow pitch. but without quality seamer they might flop outside. but, team is better than srh(without warner), rr, kolkata,punjab. so, this is my 4th team to crack.
The Chennai Super Kings return with some big names on their squad, including Indian stars MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja and Harbhajan Singh. When you add to those players, internationals like Dwayne Bravo, Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson, the Super Kings have built up a solid squad. Like the Royals, they should do well, but may lack the edge required to make it to the top.
according to me
sunriser hyderabad and chennai super kings goes into the final
sunriser hyderabad 43% chance
chennai super kings 29% chance
kolkata knight riders 25% chance
rajasthan royals 3% chance
