King of the Pitch: Versus Rahul
Strengths: A balanced team with strength in batting, bowling and backed up by very good all-rounders. Narine, Watson and Rohit Sharma more than capable of posting big numbers in the tournament.
Weakness: A Nechim, M Hussey, I Pathan could be rotated/benched and if players get injured, the lack of bench strength in the team could hurt. Narine’s action problems could make him less effective.
