Just before the playoffs, we are once again up with our ‘Team of the week.’
We have witnessed some of the remarkable performances in the previous week from all the teams. Here’s a look at this week’s ‘Team of the week’:
Team of the Week
Fans were expecting Chris Lynn to come back to his original form and finally he showed real class in the previous week. The Opener hammered in both the games he played with a decent strike rate as well. Apart from Lynn, we have a totally different man up the order this time in the form of Rahul Tripathi. He too impressed with his willow in the last week.
The SRH skipper Kane Williamson is not a new name in this list as he has been terrific in this year’s IPL. He is one of the foremost reasons for Sunrisers Hyderabad’s success in the IPL 2018.
So, not only in top order, we have a new entry in the middle order too in the form of Vijay Shankar. Though Delhi Daredevils have been out of the tournament, the youngsters of this side have impressed in almost every game & Vijay Shankar is one of them. Apart from him, this IPL has been a memorable one for the southpaw Rishabh Pant. His outstanding performance continued in the previous week also.
The 3rd batsman in this list is none other than ‘AB De Villiers’ who was unbelievable in the previous week like always. His innings against Delhi Daredevils was a top notch one!
We have opted for only one all-rounder this time! Moeen Ali impressed with his superb all-rounder skills last week. His innings against Sunrisers Hyderabad was even better than AB De Villiers. The way he was hitting the ball was so stylish and his inclusion in this list is because of that heroics only.
Folks! This time we have 4 bowlers in our list! Undoubtedly, the previous week belonged to the bowlers only where we saw some tremendous performances. Umesh Yadav made a superb comeback with his bowling after spending lots of runs week before previous week.
On the other hand, Lungi Ngidi was remarkable with his bowling, especially against KXIP yesterday, where he picked up 4 wickets for just 10 runs in his 4 overs. The other 2 bowlers are Kuldeep Yadav and Andre Tye who also bowled at their best.
