After a long time i am trying write something in my blog because i am very much happy of yesterday's result in ICC CWC 2011.
India won the cricket world cup 2nd time and whole country is celebrating it in their own style.

So, now its time for IPL4 as all team has changed because of new auction and two new franchises added it became a more interesting to analyze and rank all the teams so i have done it from my side. some people may have problems with that as they think some other team as their favorite but i done all this analysis based on key players in the team specially Indian players because there are only four players allowed in the squad of 11 so Indian players are very important in IPL. I am giving rank to all the teams with their key players and a brief review of my own if required.

Lets start us from the bottom

10. RR -> Warne, Botha, Collingwood, Tait, Ross Tylor, Watson, Dravid -> this team has a big name from international cricket but as the previous seasons they dont have big names from indian cricket which may hurt them a lot.

9. CSK-> Bravo, M. Hussy, Kulasekara, A. Morkel, Styris, Dhoni, Raina -> same problem as of RR.

8. MI -> Franklin, Henriques, Malinga, Pollard, Symonds, Sachin, Harbhajan, Munaf, Rohit -> this looks like a balanced team but still i didn't see a chances of MI to get going in IPL 4 as other teams have some young guns who can fire and take away game from them.

7. DC -> Sangakara, Duminy, KP, Steyn, White, Dhawan, Mishra, Ojha -> same as MI but they looks like a better bowling side with steyn and two indian spinners.

6. RCB -> Vettori, AB, Dilsan, Nannes, Pomersbach, Kaif, Zaheer, Kohli, Pujara, Tiwary -> more balanced side then DC but still batting is not good enough.

5. KXIP -> Gilly, Harris, D. Hussy, Marsh, Broad, Mascarenhas, Chawla, D. Kartik, P. Kumar, Nayar -> looks like a better batting side and may go a long way

4. Kochi -> Jaywardena, Hodge, B. McCullam, Murlidharan, O. Shah, Jadeja, Laxman, Parthiv, RP, Sreesanth -> this is a totally balanced side and we can see that they have quality of batsman, wicket keeper, fast bowler, as well as spin bowler.

3. Pune -> Mathews, Ryder, G. Smith, J. Tylor, Yuvi, Nehra, Pandey, Uthappa -> their bowling looks weak but after watching the bowling performance of yuvi in WC 2011 we can say that this team may win the IPL4.

2. DD -> Hopes, M. Morkel, Merwe, Warner, Sehwag, Irfan, Rao -> this team has two great all-rounders and two power house batsmans. so they can change the game.

1. KKR -> Haddin, Kallis, Lee, Shakib, Gambhir, Balaji, Yusuf -> after a disaster performance in previous seasons of IPL KKR is first time looks like a powerful team and a big contender to win this IPL as they have a powerful heater of the ball haddin and yusuf, then they have a long inning players like, kallis and gambhir, they have experienced fast bowlers lee and balaji, have a great all rounders like shakib, kallis and yusuf.

Readers view points are welcome.
I know many of you have many problems from my ranking but this is what i feel after analyzing teams on paper result may differ from the original standing in the tournament.
Lets see what happens.
