Hot Spot - IPL7 Preview - CSK, DD, KXIP & KKR
John Pennington and Chetan Narula look ahead to the Indian Premier League 2014 by focussing on Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Daredevils, Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders.
They look back at February's auction and assess how the teams and also attempt to predict how well they will fare on the pitch.
Will Chennai Super Kings miss Michael Hussey? Is Kevin Pietersen fit and if so, can he lead the Daredevils to a better finish than last year's?
Could the Kings XI Punjab, with Mitchell Johnson on song, be a surprise package? And could this be Yusuf Pathan's IPL?
Watch out for Chetan trying to change the tournament rules by having five teams enter play-off week and both try to keep up with exactly who has signed who at auction.
