Strengths of KXIP IPL Squad 2018 for VIVO IPL 2018

The team is full of bowling options as they always have been. It is said that SRH wins their matches by betting up on their bowlers with batsmen doing the minimalistic work. Same is seen in the team of this year where they have bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Carlos Brathwaite, Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Nabi, Chris Jordan, Basil Thampi and Syed Mehdi Hasan. The team has some of the world class players in Kane Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner. Also, they have betted high on players from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and West Indies. The world class all-rounders in Shakib and Carlos Brathwaite gives them a decent batting middle order which can turn the table on opposition.

Weakness of SRH IPL Squad 2018 for VIVO IPL 2018

The middle order could be a cause of concern for the management as this middle order is highly unpredictable and they would need one of their top four to continue till the end. Players like Yusuf Pathan and Carlos Brathwaite are match winners but the uncertainty around their form would be a cause of concern for the team. The fragile middle order will put some extra pressure on the top order especially Warner to click and give them a formidable start to capitalize on.
