Strength: The team focuses on quality. Yet again this season after its comeback, they have invested in top players like the skipper Steve Smith while others players include Ben Stokes, Ajinkya Rahane and recent Big Bash league sensation D Archy Short, and Jofra Archer. These players will be the main difference this season.
Weakness: They are known for grooming young payers. However, it will be interesting to see how they handle raw talent this time around. Among bowling, they only have three specialist bowlers Ben Laughlin, Dushmantha Chameera and Ben Stokes. They have to rotate players very well in the ratio 4:7 throughout the season.
