Vivo IPL 2018 Prediction
1) CHENNAI SUPER KINGS
The Mahi army again back after 2 yr of ban period, so the excitement level of Chennai fans is at topmost position. The Whistle Podu song is now spreading its sound all over India. But What the Cricket Diva’s said???? Chennai is having a less chance of qualifying for the playoff. WHAT ARE YOU JOKING!!!! No, The Stars have said so. But let me tell you one thing they are forgetting that, WHEN DHONI IS HERE THERE IS NO FEAR. So what they said is Mistry and obviously, Dhoni will create History. So now having a look on the Squad of KINGS,
As all hope, they have retained their star player Dhoni, Raina and Jadeja. But except this star players, they have used their two RTM card to bring back the Southpaw Faf du Plessis and D J Bravo. With these 5 stars in your team, anyone could say that its base is strong and they can qualify for the playoff and can get the title of IPL 2018.
Some other players like Ambati Rayudu, Murli Vijay, Shane Watson and Kedar Jadhav will boost the batting line up and also some of them can grab Wickets. Whereas if we look through the bowling line up its filled up with new youngsters, but some name like Harbhajan Singh, Karan Sharma, Sharadhalu Thakur and Imran Tahir gives it a right line up. With these star bowlers, the youngsters will improve in skill and bowling line up. So With Captain Cool leading all of them its a super team.

2) MUMBAI INDIANS
The Sachin’s army of IPL team under Captaincy of Rohit Sharma is now one of the strongest team in the IPL who has won 3 titles. But now the players have changed with many new names in it. As all know Mumbai has retained its 3-star players Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah. But along with these, they used their 2 RTM card to bring back Kieron Pollard and Krunal Pandya. While it look as a strong team as the Captaincy belt is under Rohit, let’s look throughout the new players bought.
So if we look at the batting line-up then many power hitters are added to the team like E Lewis the man who is in fabulous form in BBL. Ben Cutting the Southpaw who is the main reason behind the title win of SRH in 2016, for his last over fireworks. Another name the South African all-rounder JP Duminy who has a great season with Mumbai previously. So the batting line up is good for Mumbai, but the main problem is all are hard hitter if anyway Wickets are falling down then Mumbai have no such player who can stay at crease till the end, instead of this the players will try to go in there as usual style and a result of which they may lose all Wickets.
So now if we come across the bowling line up, then some name like Bumrah, Cummins and Mustafizur will focus a lot. With Bumrah and Mustafizur Mumbai can start their power play over to grab some Wickets and reduce the runs. Then after that remaining bowlers will do there task. But if the duo not able to grab Wickets from the beginning then it will be a great problem for the next upcoming bowlers, as they all will go for the huge run.
So overall, according to the IPL 2018 prediction, if we look at the team then it has a chance to qualify for the playoff but maybe it can’t win the title as per the Cricket Divas.
3) SUNRISERS HYDERABAD
The orange army Sunrisers Hyderabad is one of the teams that emerged as a strong team due to the Captaincy of David Warner and its Bowling line up. They have claimed their single title by defeating the Bangalore team. As all know that they have retained their star player David Warner and Bhubaneswar Kumar who are base of the team. After that, the crew used their 3 RTM cards on Shikhar Dhawan, Rashid Khan and Deepak Hooda. So now let’s look throughout new members of the team.
If we go through the batting line up, then the Opening pair is one of the best pairs in IPL with Dhawan and Warner. Who has most no of 50+ stand. But as always SRH is a bit weak in the middle order this time they have retained Manish Pandey to boost the middle order. So the young gun Pandey is in great form and make the team look more stronger. Some other name like Saha and Williamson is there who can bat in any condition. If Wickets are falling down then these duos can stay till the end to set an achievable target. Many other names like S Baby, Yusuf Pathan and Deepak Hooda makes the team look more stronger.
If we come to the bowling line up then as usually, Hyderabad did what they do in all season by picking up young bowlers who will have a major impact on the game. With Bhubaneswar and Rashid in the team and some other bowlers like Nabi and Shakib backing them up look like a dangerous bowling line-up which will destroy the batting line up of opponent. And with the young new bowlers Batsman will not able to read their ball so quickly will be another point for Hyderabad.
So overall, according to the IPL 2018 prediction, if we say Hyderabad is in a strong position like other teams, it will definitely qualify the playoff and can also win the title as per the Cricket Divas.

4) DELHI DAREDEVILS
Delhi the team of Red Devils who have not shown good performance in past season is now set up in a new way to start the IPL 11. As all know that they have retained the young guns R Pant and S Iyer with the all-rounder Chris Morris. These are the 3 players who have done well in the past IPL. But now if we look at the team then it is much stronger than ever it has. So let’s go through the team.
The main buy in the team is its Captain who will be Gautam Gambhir. Yes, the Delhi boy will now play for his State. So the man who claimed 2 titles as a Captain in KKR will now try to do the same for Delhi.
If we look at the batting line-up then some name like Gambhir, Maxwell and Roy will seem as experienced players who have the ability to go for big. But rather than this, all are new young guns who are in fabulous form in Ranji and under 19 games. So these young guns will definitely be a positive point for Delhi. They have players who can boost the runs when it needed. But one problem is if the young guns will fail then there will be no batting back up for Delhi which will be one of the great problems for them.
Now if we look at the bowling line-up then its look like a strong unit with Boult, Rabada, Shami and Mishra in it. Who will lead the team from the front side? While other Like Morris and Christian will do their job to reduce the run in death overs. But if they unable to get Wickets from the beginning then all will go for huge runs as no such good spin section is available on their team except Mishra.
So overall, as per the Cricket Diva’s IPL 2018 prediction Delhi will make it to the playoffs and one of the teams who can reach to the finals.
5) KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS
The Knight Riders quite proving their song ” Karbo Ladhbo Jitbo ” is perfect for them as they have own 2 titles till now. The army of SRK has done one of the huge change by releasing Gambhir from their team who won two titles for them. This news Shock all fans of Gambhir. So they have retained only two players Andrew Russell and Sunil Narine, Irrespective of their bad form in the past season. So now going throughout the team.
If we have a look at the batting line-up of KKR then Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Karthik and Chris Lynn are those players who look as experienced. But among these two only Lynn is in good form. So a huge matter of concern will be about the form of the duo Uthappa and Karthik. Andrew Russell may be a hard hitter but he will not always go for big runs. So its look a little bit weak in the batting section for Kolkata.
While if we go through the bowling line-up, with Vinay Kumar, M Starc and Johnson its seems to be a good fast attacking line up. With Chawla, Kuldeep and Narine backing them up with the spin section. With these 6 the bowling unit is looking much stronger than before.
So overall, as per the Cricket Diva’s IPL 2018 prediction, Kolkata may not be able to qualify the playoffs, as its batting order is not looking so strong to face any team.

6) KING XI PUNJAB
The pink army of IPL team who never been able to get a single title till now start IPL 11 with all new players. As from the beginning of the IPL always they start by winning but at last with a series of lose they unable to qualify for the playoffs. For this reason by only retaining Axar Patel, they have gone through the bidding process to grab new players. So now have look at the team,
If we go through the batting line-up then with some big name like Chris Gayle, Aaron Finch, David Miller and Yuvraj Singh its look to be a strong batting line up. But if we look all past performance then all are in their careers worst situation except A Finch who is in little above all of those. But if we talk about K L Rahul and K Nair then they are in good form and can able to boost the scoring. But one of the main things is that if some of these will go down early then no strong batting line up is there who can boost the run. That will be one major problem for Punjab.
If we go through the bowling line-up then with Stoinis and Tye its look a balanced opening pair to start up the power play overs. And also Tye is in great form as in BBL he has grab 3 hattricks in his name. So if he will continue that form and bowling line up then remaining will be History for KXIP. Also, Aswin and Mohit Sharma are backing them up. So from bowling line up its look like a strong team.
Overall, as per the IPL 2018 prediction of Cricket Diva’s Punjab may be able to reach the playoff but cant makes it to the finals. As only with a strong bowling line-up one can’t able to stay in the race for long.
7) RAJASTHAN ROYALS
The Royals team of IPL who are the 1st IPL title winners in 2008 seems to be not as a good team after that. As years past out they seem to be getting lower and lower. So after being banned for 2yrs now returning again to the IPL this year they have made a lot of changes in their team. Retaining Captain Smith only they have chosen to start with new players in a new way.
So if we look at the batting line-up then with some big names like Smith, Rahane, Rahul Tripathy and Sanju Samson who are in great form last season, now along their side to do the same as previous. But if these players will fail in any condition then there is no bating back up for Rajasthan. It will be a great matter of concern for them, which they have to handle very smartly.
If we go through the bowling line-up then two most of the expensive player of this season Ben Stokes and Jaydev Unadkat are along their side. Jaydev is in great form as in previous season he is in good form due to which RPS able to reach the final. And also with star bowler, Stokes who is an All-Rounder can bowl in death overs and boost the runs in lower batting line up. Due to these two players RPS able to reach the final. So all hope that again these duos will do so.
Overall, according to the IPL 2018 prediction of Cricket Diva’s Rajasthan can make it to the playoffs but they may not able to reach to the finals.

8) ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE
The Team that have big names in it, but never been able to grab the title even getting to the final twice. Now have with new players will going to start the season. As from the beginning its confirm that they will retain their star duo Kohli and de Villiers, but retaining the young gun Sarfaraz is one of the greatest surprises for their fan. But some of the fans are in dilemma that why they have not retained Big hitter Gayle.
So if we look at the batting line-up then with Kohli and de Villiers in it seems to be strong enough. But remember one thing with these duos in the team from a long they can’t able to get the title. So if we look at some new buys then players like McCullum, Moeen Ali and De Kock will be better. No matter of confusion in form of McCullum but the rest two are not in good form. So if Kohli, Devilers and McCullum will fail then the batting order of RCB will collapse.
If we look across the bowling line-up then it seems to be more stronger than before as with Chahal, Woakes, Umesh Yadav, Tim Southee, Coulter-Nile and Mohmad Siraj. They have a long line up so there will be no problem in bowling section of Bangalore. But if the Batsman not able to put a massive total on the board then these bowlers cant able to win the match for their team.
Finally, as per the IPL 2018 Prediction of the Cricket Diva’s, Bangalore may not be able to reach the playoffs, Somehow it will end up in the bottom 4 teams.
In the ongoing Auction, Cricket Diva’s said that in IPL 11 the 4 teams who will make it to the playoffs are Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai and one of the rest among KXIP, Mumbai and Rajasthan.
And hopefully, as per their prediction, two teams who will qualify for the finals will be DELHI AND HYDERABAD.
But as our assumption, all teams are strong in their position and all can make it to the finals, so as a fan of any team we just have to support our team till the end whatever may be its position in the end of the IPL. If we all encourage our team even if he is in lower from the beginning it will give him a more confidence to fight back and rise to the top of the table.
So be part of this IPL and keep encouraging your team because as we say,
“WHAT THEY HAVE SAID IS MYSTERY, OUR TEAMS WILL DEFINITELY CREAT HISTORY.”
