  1. The Teams which I see qualifying for the next stage are:-

    SRH
    Hyderabad has shown there strength in both batting and bowling. David Warner and Johny Bairstow looks dangerous at the top with Vijay shankar coming at Number 4. There pace attack is lead by Bhuvi who gets tremendous support from the Afgan pair, Sandeep Sharma and S.Kaul.

    This team was my favourite for the title but the declaration by Cricket Australia and England Cricket will struck this team hard. David Warner and Johny Bairstow there leading batsman might miss the IPL second leg beginning from May1. But I think they will easily qualify considering their run till May 1.

    2. CSK

    Whenever we talk about qualifying for play offs, CSK is a team that needs to be included. They have qualified for playoff in every season they have played. Their batting looks lethal with Raina in form. Bowling is also good and on their day can win match for CSK.

    3. MI

    Mumbai Indians, another big gun of the business. And with in form Pandya brothers, they batting has destroyed even CSK in death overs. Line up with likes of Rohit Sharma, In form SuryaKumar Yadav, Mighty Yuvraj Singh, Bumrah and Malinga, this looks strong very strong on paper.

    4. DC or RCB

    Suprising?? Admit it, Delhi has been exceptionally good in the first two weeks of the tournament. Stacked up with young Indian talent this team has been on the aggressive mode till the start of IPL. Defeated Mumbai at their home, defeated KKR in super over and lost to KXIP due to a rare batting collapse (giving 7 wickets in a span of 7 to 10 runs), they look charged up and are looking to turn the tables around.

    And for RCB, I m shocked as well while writing the answer. But we should not write them off because they have lost 4 out of 4 matches. Remember MI has made a comeback after being in a similar situation, and that’s too two times. RCB needs to make few changes to the line up and boom they will be on the track again.

    Now predicting the winner,

    MI or CSK.

    Reasons- For SRH I explained why they can’t be winners according to me. For MI/CSK, they xan be winners because they have replacement for each and every player.
