Arshdeep, Rabada

Excellent Pace Attack: Arshdeep, Rabada and Woakes can do wonders with the new ball. Harshal and Karan are present in the team for death overs. Apart from these, options like Ellis, Rishi Dhawan and Vidvat Kavarappa are also available.

All-Rounders are also strong: Along with Curran, Woakes Livingston and Sikandar Raza, all-rounders like Rishi Dhawan and Harshal are in the team. Apart from these, including uncapped players, there are a total of 12 players in the team who can do both batting and bowling.

There is no dearth of backup players: The team has strong players at every batting and bowling position along with strong options. If a player is out of the league due to injury, the team will not face much problem compared to other teams.

Bairstow and Livingston

No consistency among foreign players: There is a lack of consistency in foreign players like Curran, Bairstow and Livingston. Which is a matter of concern for the team. Riley Rousseau also could not perform well in the last season of SA20.

Middle order is weak, new players: The middle order of the team is weak. Not only this, Jitesh Sharma has not been able to prove himself in the role of finisher. Most of the players in the team are new. Who may come under pressure.

No big name in spin bowling: There is no big name in the spin bowling attack of the team. The responsibility of spin bowling is on Rahul Chahar and Harpreet Brar. Who have not been able to establish themselves.
