5 Players to Watch out for this IPL Season

If you have been dedicatedly watching the current IPL Season, we are sure you already know why missing even a single match will be a regretful decision. The past SRH home matches have been exciting enough, with SRH winning over the opponent teams, to watch the remaining home matches live in Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium.


Wondering who makes this season a retreat to watch? Shikhir Dhawan, Chris Gayle, Yuvraj Singh, Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are of course the ones but that’s not it folks.  The list is long. Let’s look at a few more players to watch out, for this IPL Season.


1.Ben Strokes: Ben Stokes' powerful frame, aggressive intent with bat and ball and energy in the field brings him player to the list of the one of the players to watch out for this season. Playing for Rajasthan Royals this year; Ben scored a total of 316 Runs last season. Possessing an ability to take on the bowlers from the word – “go and test the batsmen”, Stokes is the X factor that an IPL team needed.


2.Dwayne Bravo: Former Captain of West indies; Dwayne Bravo is an all-rounder. This Right-handed batsman and right arm medium fast pace bowler, is known in the world of cricket as an aggressive batsman in the middle order and his "at the death" bowling. In his Career as a IPL player since 2008; Dwayne has scored a total of 1318 Runs and took 123 wickets. Guess that is why he has been retained by The Chennai Super kings since 2014. He, then played for GL in 2016 just before CSK took him back this season.


3.Sunil Narine:  In addition to being the first foreign spinner to take 100 wickets in IPL; Kolkata Knight Riders' Sunil Narine is a player envied by most for his game. With a total of 2113 Runs and 102 wickets in his kitty as an IPL player, Sunil also scored the joint-fastest IPL fifty getting to the landmark in just 15 balls last year. Sunil has been the top choices by franchises ever since his debut IPL Season in 2012. KKR’s perennial go-to man with the ball, this left-handed batsman & right arm off spin bowler was amongst the two players to be retained by the franchise this year.


4.Hardik Pandya: An all Rounder who bats right handed and bowls right arm medium fast; Hardik Pandya is a Mumbai Indians squad player to watch out for this season. Being the youngest brother of all Rounder Krunal Pandya; Hardik has cricket in his veins. n his debut IPL game against RCB, he hit a six off just the second ball he faced. However, his potential was truly known when he took Mumbai to victory with a quick-fire eight-ball 21 against CSK coming when the team needed 30 from two overs. In this IPL career since 2015, Pandya has scored a total of 430 Runs.


5.Manish Pandey: This flamboyant right-hand top-order batsman is the first Indian to score a ton in IPL with an unbeaten 114 while playing for the RCB in 2009 against the then Hyderabad team Deccan Chargers. Irony in life is- this season he is playing for Hyderabad based team Sunrisers Hyderabad. In addition to this; Pandey has been one of the most consistent run-getters in Indian domestic cricket and loves to hit big sixes to win the game. This Kannad batsman has scored a total of 2230 Runs in his career as an IPL player.
