Kings XI Punjab bowling coach, Ryan Harris, has revealed that the current squad has a lot of firepower in their current batting order ahead of the start of the 2019 season of the IPL. Harris also went on to predict that Chennai Super Kings would, once again, be favorites to lift the trophy.

The new season of the IPL is just a day away and once again, just like last season, again Kings XI Punjabare easily one of the stronger sides in the 12th edition of the tournament. KXIP bowling coach, Ryan Harris, reckons his side has a formidable batting line-up and exciting all-rounders in their squad.

"It’s quite good. We had a couple of practice games and the team is looking in shape. The squad is slowly coming together and though we are missing some of the guys - couple in Australia and David Miller for South Africa - because of their different commitments, it is looking good for us so far.

"I think it is going to be somewhat similar. We have a good bowling attack but our batting is looking great with Mayank (Agarwal), KL (Rahul) and (Chris) Gayle. We have a lot of firepower at the top of the batting order. But bowling will also be good with Ankit Rajpoot looking in good shape," Harris said in a recent interview with Hindustan Times.

Harris, who represented Australia in 27 Test matches, also added that Chennai Super Kings will be the favorites in the coming season which will start on March 23.

"We want to make sure that we are consistent and we want to start the season well. We had a good start last year as well but we dropped the ball. We have to make sure that we maintain the consistency and the confidence. We know that we will lose some games but we needed to learn from those defeats and try to improve ourselves and focus on the next games.

"Well, it is tough to look past Chennai Super Kings. They are the reigning champions and they have a good squad. I will say Mumbai Indians will also be tough opponents. But, with the World Cup coming up, teams will lose players and it will come down to which team can recover in time," Harris added.
