Probable Playing XI in IPL 2018 Matches

What will be the best playing XI for teams in IPL 11?

IPL 2018 playing XI

IPL 2018 predicted XI of all eight teams is placed here. With a brand new IPL season coming up soon, and big changes to the teams taking part, it is time to take a look at who we think will be in the probably staring X1’s for each team. This should show us how strong each team is, and if they are capable of competing at the top in an attempt to win the IPL crown in 2018. These combinations do not take into account availability issues due to international commitments and injuries. The best playing 11 of IPL 2018 teams is placed below.

Probable XI for Chennai Super Kings

  1. Murali Vijay
  2. Faf du Plessis
  3. Suresh Raina
  4. MS Dhoni
  5. Dwayne Bravo
  6. Ravindra Jadeja
  7. Shane Watson
  8. Harbhajan Singh
  9. Shardul Thakur
  10. Deepak Chahar
  11. Imran Tahir

The Chennai Super Kings have brought back many fan favourites in their first season back in the IPL. With a solid batting line up they should do well, and they also have a good spin attack. However, their pace bowling options are a little thin, and it will be interesting to see how they combat that. They have the potential to compete, but the likelihood is that they will fall just short and finish mid table.

Probable XI for Rajasthan Royals

  1. Ajinkya Rahane
  2. Rahul Tripathi
  3. Steve Smith
  4. Sanju Samson
  5. D’Arcy Short
  6. Ben Stokes
  7. Jos Buttler
  8. Stuart Binny
  9. Gowtham Krishnappa
  10. Jaydev Unatkat
  11. Dhawal Kulkarni

The Royals are back in the IPL looking to make an impact after their suspension. They have put together a good batting line up, with three international players Steve Smith, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler all capable of hitting the ball a long way. However, they appear to lack a lot in the bowling department and that looks like it will cost them, they just don’t appear to have enough wicket takers in the team.

Probable XI for Royal Challengers Bangalore

  1. Brendan McCullum
  2. Quinton De Kock
  3. Virat Kohli
  4. AB de Villiers
  5. Parthiv Patel
  6. Chris Woakes
  7. Sarfraz Khan
  8. Umesh Yadav
  9. Washington Sundar
  10. Navdeep Saini
  11. Yuzvendra Chahal

The Royal Challengers Bangalore have a fantastic batting line up, one of the strongest in the competition who are likely to make the difference in the RCB playing 11. Not only do they have three top class overseas batsmen, they also have Virat Kohli, the best Indian batsmen. Their top four will dominate many teams this season, and should be fantastic to watch. Their bowling is not as good, but they are good enough to challenge and after disappointing last season they will be desperate to perform better for their fans.

Probable XI for Kolkata Knight Riders

  1. Chris Lynn
  2. Robin Uthappa
  3. Shubman Gill
  4. Dinesh Kartick
  5. Nitish Rana
  6. Kris Russell
  7. Sunil Narine
  8. Piyush Chawla
  9. Mitchell Starc
  10. Kuldeep Yadav
  11. Kamlesh Nagarkoti

The Kolkata Knight Riders have assembled their squad and unless many players perform at their very best, this looks sure to be a tough season for them. They have some nice players in the middle order, and Mitchell Starc will take wickets for them, but their overall bowling line up and their top order is poor. They are hoping that players can over achieve, but looking right now it looks unlikely they will be able to challenge at the top of the table.

Probable XI for Kings XI Punjab

  1. Chris Gayle
  2. Aaron Finch
  3. KL Rahul
  4. Yuvraj Singh
  5. David Miller
  6. Karun Nair
  7. Axar Patel
  8. Mayank Agarwal
  9. R Ashwin
  10. Mohit Sharma
  11. Mujeeb Zadran

The Kings X1 Punjab have struggled to perform in the IPL for the past few seasons now, and they have changed their squad once again to try and find the winning formula. On the positive side they have brought in experienced batsmen Aaron Finch, Chris Gayle, Yuvraj Singh and David Miller. However, those players are not the force they were of old, and cannot be relied upon all the time to perform. Alongside a suspect bowling line up, they look to be in for another tricky season in 2018.

Probable XI for Delhi Daredevils

  1. Gautam Gambhir
  2. Jason Roy
  3. Shreyas Iyer
  4. Glenn Maxwell
  5. Rishabh Pant
  6. Naman Ojha
  7. Chris Morris
  8. Gurkeerat Singh
  9. Amit Mishra
  10. Mohammed Shami
  11. Kagiso Rabada

The Delhi Daredevils have put together a squad that will make them competitive, but they may be lacking a real star to take them forward. They have good batting, and also good bowling, but another star name would potentially have made them great, and that is what you need to be to win the IPL. That is the reason why I think they will do ok, but ultimately fall just short of being a true challenger.

Probable XI for Mumbai Indians

  1. Rohit Sharma
  2. Evin Lewis
  3. Ishan Kishan
  4. JP Duminy
  5. Suryakumar Yadav
  6. Kieron Pollard
  7. Hardik Pandya
  8. Jasprit Bumrah
  9. Krunal Pandya
  10. Pat Cummins
  11. Mohsin Khan

The Indians have a strong batting attack led by Rohit Sharma, with the big hitting of Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya down the order. They are just as good when it comes to bowling, and we should see plenty of wickets taken by Jasprit Bumrah and Pat Cummins, two players who should lead this attack. They look to have a good all-round team, with strength throughout the lineup.

Probable XI for Surnrisers Hyderabad

  1. David Warner
  2. Shikhar Dhawan
  3. Kane Williamson
  4. Manish Pandey
  5. Yusuf Pathan
  6. Shakib Al Hasan
  7. Carlos Brathwaite
  8. Wriddhiman Saha
  9. Bhuvneshwar Kumar
  10. Siddarth Kaul
  11. Sandeep Sharma

The Sunrisers Hyderabad have put together a well-balanced squad that excels with both the bat and ball. At the top of the order they have some fantastic opening batsmen, they have power in the middle order and at the bottom they have a good group of bowlers led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar. With this group of players on the field, it is expected that the Sunrisers go close to winning the IPL this season.
