· The team has always been a star in people’s eyes however their on-field performance has not been up to the mark. They have won the title twice but after that their performance has been disappointing.
· Jacques Kallis has been appointed as the coach of the team. He brings lots of experience with him and knows what it takes to win the match.
· Dinesh Karthik has been appointed the captain of the team.
· The team decided to retain two players from previous batches that are Sunil Narine and Andre Russell. Sunil is one of the best spinners and Andre is very good middle order batsman.
· The team is coming back after a two-year ban. Their fans have been waiting eagerly to see them play again and are not willing to see them lose any match this year.
· The team seems to have a weak bowling lineup as compared to other teams, so whether they will be able to take enough wickets or not, remains a mystery. Their weak bowling can lead them to lose despite having a line of good attacking batsmen in the lineup.
· They have batsmen like Buttler, Ben Stokes and Stuart Binny who have the capability to score big. They can bat with power, and help their team beat other teams easily.
