Drawling a line somewhere around the middle is a safe way to sit on the fence and to say that Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Rajasthan have got squads which look a mighty strong threat wouldn't be wrong.
Punjab too gives them a tough fight to sneak in. Another keeper in the ranks and they would have made it there. Chennai, Mumbai and Kolkata though seem iffy. But mind you, these are the Cricket Betting Tips Free sides who know to win championships, multiple times.
