It is a good mixture of experienced players in important positions along with talented Indian young local players in every position.The bench strength is much stronger and there is a cohesive unit and great team spirit. We need to believe that we can finish the league at the top half and definitely aim to achieve nothing less than top 3. But for that to happen we need to be much stronger this season defensively as a team."
