One gets the sense that Bangalore are top-heavy with Chris Gayle, Tillakaratne Dilshan and Kohli forming the order. Gayle in particular is their biggest trump-card and there have been occasions where his contributions have single-handedly determined Bangalore’s fate. His consistent big hitting can send jitters in the opposition camp. This time around, RCB batting unit would want to take some burden the West Indian power-hitter.
With AB de Villiers still engaged in the Ram Slam T20 with the Nashua Titans, Arun Karthik is likely to fill up the wicketkeeper's gloves. Indian discard Saurabh Tiwary and talented Mayank Agarwal would be looking to have a good outing thus helping their international and famed counterparts.
With Daniel Vettori and Muttiah Muralitharan in their squad, it is tough drop one of the two. But, with Murali Karthik coming in, Challengers might pick an all-rounder as the fourth foreign player from among Moises Henriques, Chris Barnwell, Daniel Christian and Andrew McDonald.
With a battery of Indian pacers in the line-up, Bangalore have a tough task of narrowing their options. Zaheer Khan, Rudra Pratap Singh and R Vinay Kumar may be the preferred options given their experience.
Mumbai have a very strong side on paper and have what it takes to go all the way. Sachin Tendulkar will be the man everyone would want to watch and he would bat alongside his new captain Ponting whose arrival may help Mumbai solve their opening conundrum.As much as nine opening combinations were tried out by Mumbai during IPL V.
Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik form a strong middle order. Rohit is their anchor and he has the task of guiding the innings.
Like Bangalore, Mumbai have a host of international all-rounders. Kieron Pollard would come in as they need his power hitting, bowling and impeccable fielding. Then there is a tough choice between Glenn Maxwell, the million dollar man, James Franklin, Dwayne Smith, Mitchell Johnson and Jacob Oram. In all likelihood, the fourth foreign player would be chosen from the names mentioned.
