With the ICC World T-20 beginning in just 2 weeks, right after the conclusion of the IPL, the biggest domestic cricket league in the world, the IPL successfully managed to display the efforts of some of the best players in the world. These men will also be a part of the World T-20, and their IPL performance successfully helped put some hype around them. Let’s take a look at some of these players.
One of the most successful players in this year’s IPL is none other than the Punjab Kings captain KL Rahul. Rahul currently holds the orange cap for being the highest run scorer in this year’s IPL.
He won the orange cap in 2020 as well and has been in incredible form over the past year. His score of 132 in the 2020 edition of the IPL is the highest by any Indian in the tournament’s history.
Although wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler is no longer part of this year’s IPL, he made a huge statement before he departed from the Rajasthan Royals to play for his country. His score of 124 runs off 64 balls remains the highest individual score in this year’s IPL.
The vice-captain of Team England holds the longest streak of consecutive 50+ scores in IPL history with 5 and will be one of the key players for Team England.
The Mumbai Indians vice-captain has been in incredible form this year, with both the ball and the bat. His unbeaten 87 off just 34 balls along with 2 wickets with the ball against CSK is considered one of the best performances in IPL history.
He won man of the match yet again as he picked 2 wickets and scored 15 runs against the Punjab Kings. He will be the captain of the defending champions West Indies and will have a lot of eyes on him.
The Australian all-rounder has been destructive with both the ball and the bat. Maxwell is arguably in the best form of his life, with 5 half centuries in the IPL so far, more than any other player.
Along with his destructive batting, he’s also managed to pick a few wickets and will be a huge asset for Team Australia heading into the World T-20.
While talking about the recent success of Delhi Capitals, it’s impossible to leave out Kagiso Rabada. He has massively contributed to the success of his team over the last 3 seasons.
He missed out on the purple cap in 2019, finishing as the 2nd highest wicket-taker as he missed out on a number of matches that year. He ultimately won the purple cap in the next season. He has been one of the most successful players in the IPL over the last 3 years and will be part of the South African squad at the World T-20.
