Hot Spot - IPL7 Preview - MI, RR, RCB, SRH
John Pennington and Chetan Narula wrap up their preview of the Indian Premier League 2014 with the Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
They look at how the four teams have done at auction and then try to work out how that will translate into results on the pitch.
How much of a blow will it be for Mumbai to have lost Dwayne Smith and Mitchell Johnson? And how much pressure is Rohit Sharma under in his first full season as captain?
Will the Rajasthan Royals be able to spring a surprise again?
How have the Royal Challengers Bangalore ended up with a star-studded batting line-up but a relatively weak bowling attack?
And have the Sunrisers Hyderabad put the most balanced squad of all together?
Watch out for Chetan making a bold prediction as to how many runs the Bangalore side can expect to chase every single time they go out to bat.
