Mumbai Indians to storm to Indian Premier League glory

Cricket fans across the globe will be licking their lips for the imminent T20 feast of the Indian Premier League, and yet again a plethora of world-class players will flock to the eight competing teams, and we are all set for yet another epic tournament, as last year's winner Sunrisers Hyderabad aim to retain their crown.

We focus our attentions to all eight teams and pick out their potential star players, while also select possible frailties within their ranks, before selecting our top tip for the event, which starts on April 5 and goes right through to May 21.

Tips Mumbai Indians to win    Best Bet @ 11 / 2  

Delhi Daredevils - 9/1 with Betfred

Star Player: Quinton de Kock

One To Watch: Kagiso Rabada

Verdict: One of the outsiders for the IPL, Delhi Daredevils are yet to taste victory in the event, and they are set to struggle once again, and a lot will be riding on whether South African hotshot Quinton de Kock can get them off a flier, but even then their bowling will lack strength, and they could be battling to avoid the wooden spoon. Predicted Finish: 8th

Gujarat Lions - 6/1 with Sky Bet

Star Player: Brendon McCullum

One To Watch: Dwayne Bravo

Verdict: Gujarat Lions will be blessed with some sublime batting talents, with Brendon McCullum, Jason Roy, Suresh Raina and Aaron Finch all set to be attacking from the start of the innings, and with Dwayne Bravo adding more depth to their side then they have to be considered. However, they may just lack that quality in the bowling department, and may just come up short. Predicted Finish: 3rd

Kings XI Punjab - 12/1 with Betway

Star Player: Glenn Maxwell

One To Watch: Martin Guptill

Verdict: Outsiders of the field, Kings XI Punjab may struggle the same way in which the aforementioned Gujarat Lions will, as while they have some phenomenal batting talent with the likes of captain Glenn Maxwell, Shaun Marsh, Martin Guptill and Eoin Morgan in their ranks, they will have a weak bowling attack, and that could well see them consigned to a lowly finish in the table. Predicted Finish: 7th

Kolkata Knight Riders - 7/1 with bet365

Star Player: Sunil Narine

One To Watch: Chris Lynn

Verdict: Winners in 2012, Kolkata Knight Riders will be able to call on the skills of West Indian spin sensation Sunil Narine, but while Australian Chris Lynn will be aiming to build on some spectacular Big Bash knocks they lack the strength in depth to go far in the competition, and will struggle against some of the more star-studded teams. Predicted Finish: 6th

Mumbai Indians - 11/2 with bet365

Star Player: Rohit Sharma

One To Watch: Mitchell Johnson

Verdict: Mumbai Indians have won two of the last four IPL tournaments, and yet again they will have a strong hand to play, but while most other sides are dominated by their batting threats, it's the bowling attack that stands out for Mumbai, with Mitchell Johnson, Lasith Malinga, Mitchell McClenaghan and Keiron Pollard set to provide a fearsome frontline, and with batting class from Rohit Sharma and Jos Buttler in the side, then they can be victorious at 11/2 with bet365 in this year's event. Predicted Finish: Winners

Rising Pune Supergiants - 13/2 with Sky Bet

Star Player: Ben Stokes

One To Watch: Adam Zampa

Verdict: An eye-catching blend of youth and experience, the Rising Pune Supergiants will have some heavyweight performers amongst their ranks with Ben Stokes, Steve Smith and MS Dhoni all set to feature, while Adam Zampa will be the attacking threat from a bowling perspective, and they could well have a superb tournament, before falling at the final hurdle against the Mumbai Indians. Predicted Finish: 2nd

Royal Challengers Bangalore - 4/1 with bet365

Star Player: Virat Kohli

One To Watch: Tymal Mills

Verdict: Last year's beaten finalists, Royal Challengers Bangalore will head into this year's IPL as the ante-post favourites, and it's no surprise with Virat Kohli, AB De Villiers and Chris Gayle within their ranks, and there's no doubt they will break 200 runs a few times during the tournament. But, they may just lack that quality within their bowling ranks, and while Tymal Mills is an eye-catching recruit they could just falter when trying to defend a score. Predicted Finish: 4th

Sunrisers Hyderabad - 6/1 with Betfred

Star Player: David Warner

One To Watch: Kane Williamson

Verdict: Sunrisers Hyderabad will go into this year's event as the reigning champions, and David Warner is sure to be trying to get them off to a flying start at the top of the innings, but while Kane Williamson will add more to their batting ranks, they may just lack the quality to retain their title, and could even miss out on a top-four spot. Predicted Finish: 5th
