In the previous season, they were guided by Glenn Maxwell. They have not performed well in last few seasons. They are having bet players, David Miller, Manan Vohra, Axar Patel, Glenn Maxwell. They are having the best big hitter and deep batting lineup. But some times they have to face loss due to their weak bowling attacks. They need to add good bowlers in the squad that they could take wickets.
