    RR is heavily dependent on Buttler (like how Punjab won matches because of Rahul). Samson is like Gayle. So lots of similarities. KKR has much rounded team, but they have a tougher match against SRH in Hyderabad (Maybe SRH may experiment a bit in that match)! KKR will definitely eye for 16 points instead of NRR shootout... RCB should fancy against SRH in Bengaluru, and they should really lay a flat bed there and bamboozle SRH & totally negate their bowling (Only issue is Rain which can spoil the party for RCB).... Then RR vs. RCB will be a cracker (virtual QF, both teams looking for win + NRR). MI will be in a better position for fighting NRR as they play on Sunday, but Kings XI have two tough matches (MI, CSK), also they are not in a better shape now (unless CSK helps them out which cannot be ruled out)

    Hence this has to be one of the hard-fought IPL and the most interesting year ever, because of the curiosity left at the end! (Most of the times it used to look boring & dragging towards the end)

    I guess RCB fans will be supporting RR, because then their fate will be completely in their hands because they will be playing against RR, so it goes down to beating them (of course provided they win against SRH first) If KKR wins that can possibly put another team on 16 points and out of reach which they don't want to see... So go RR, go...

    Glad Buttler is getting all his form before RCB game (perhaps like Rahul)

    Lack of mental game (what batsmen is up to). Hence I would like to put these young players (both batsmen & bowlers) to first play test cricket, so that they can relax & get their techniques/skills upgraded to highest level... IPL level is completely different from under 19 level which usually contains below-par or skill-less opposition batsmen

    Rahane playing T20 is more painful than watching Laxman & Dravid doing for their respective IPL teams a decade back! I guess IPL is going to become more competitive in coming years to an extent that such players may not get selected by the franchisees anymore (young Indian talents emerging this year is an indication)

    Narine is good choice as opener , he usually does not waste too many balls , and plays a good cameo.
