Do you think these 'SOON ARRIVING' star players will change the equation?

Some of the teams are missing their star players. These are the players who are going to join their teams soon. Kolkata Knight Riders Brendon McCullum David Hussey Kings XI Punjab Brett Lee Shaun Marsh Delhi Dare Devils Paul Collingwood Daniel Vettori Royal Challengers Bangalore Kevin Pietersen Ross Taylor Cameron White Chris Gayle already joined KKR team and right away scored 75 runs knock though it failed to win the match it did have an impact. And with Gayle and McCullum, KKR can boast of one of the most terrific opening pair. Punjab will be banking on Brett Lee and Shaun Marsh. Delhi Dare Devils can have Collingwood and Vettori to give more depth. Royal Challengers also will be having Pietersen, Cameron White, and Ross Taylor. What do you think about these players joining their teams. Will it affects the equation of their respective teams considerably? Who do you think is going to benefit much?

I hope KXLP and DD will be good with the new stars... as all of us know BLR is in very strong position and riders no need to consider.... So now the matches will be very interesting... Vettori is a very good Bowler and a decent batsman.. he can make the difference with his bowling.

You are right, KXIP needs Brett Lee. It needs to be seen whether Marsh is in good touch or not. But there is no doubt that punjab will be tougher with these two guys. Actually Katich is what they might be missing. He was a good contributor for them. Delhi will surely looking for Paul and vettori. Vettori can make a good pair with Mishra and bowl tight overs that can have some effect on results. Happy Mylotting!

These players are surely gonna effect the equation....RCB is already on top and they will become even stronger with the addition of stars like KP and Ross Taylor.Being a delhi supporter I wud love seeing Collingwood and Vettori in the playing XI to provide some relief!

RCB will be looking forward to include Taylor I guess. He is a big scorer for RCB in IPL2. So he will definitely add some more depth in the batting. Delhi seems to be back on track as warner is playing really well and AB showed his form. It is just that they need to fix some things and they will be tougher to beat in IPL. Happy Mylotting!

hmmmm.Brendon McCullum and david hussey might find their spot in the playing XI but what kolkata needs is have charl langvelt back.it might boost their chances.they really have to change the way they bat.dont worry if they loose wicket but score over 8 an over in the first 8 overs and you can think of a big score. heard that marsh and lee might be available for the team today but not sure about it.it was marsh and hopes that gave the good start last season .lets see if marsh has the same form. pual and daniel are must for the delhi because you cant win matches by playing 4 best batsmen,2 ordinary batsmen and 5 pure bowlers who dont bat that well.they need alrounders and paul and daniel are thier best bet. do you really think RCB needs those guys? got kalis for solid opening and dravid if he fails.got hitters like manish pandey,uthappa and kohli in the middle and morgan ,boucher and kumars for the final assault.they dont wanna change the combo. bt it all depends on the form of the so-called soon arriving players

You are right, KKR needs to have aggressive approach in their batting, especially in the first 6 overs or so. Delhi is looking good after warner and AB showed good form. So new guys will add some more strength. As far as RCB, yes, at the moment they are looking like a settled team and doesn't need any changes. May be they will replace morgan with Taylor in the later stage of the IPL. Happy Mylotting!

Well not all the players changed the equation, it differed. Some extremely good and some didnot work out. So the benefit is 50/50.
