These players have lived up to the expectations thus far in the T20 extravaganza.
The first four weeks of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is done and dusted. All teams seemed stronger on paper and due to their bad execution on the cricket field, some teams were standing at the bottom of the points table.
While Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals are fighting for the top position in the points table, Kings XI Punjab have constantly been at the 8th position from the second week of the ongoing season. RR, KKR, CSK, and SRH were still trying to find a perfect combination to get into the winning strike.
The coming few weeks of the tournament promise to be an exciting one as the teams like SRH, KKR, CSK, RR, and KXIP have to win most of their matches from now on to reach the playoffs.
Now, in this article let us try to build the best XI of players from the many top performers in the first four weeks of the tournament. A team have six bowling options with 5 regular bowlers and batting depth up to 8th position seemed to succeed in the tournament so far and we followed the same combination here.
Here is the list of Best XI from the first four weeks of IPL 2020: –
1. KL Rahul (KXIP)
The Karnataka born right-handed opening batsman is currently having the Orange Cap with him with 448 runs in 8 matches he has played in this season so far. But the Punjab franchise which he is leading is standing at the bottom of the table despite the skipper’s heroics with the bat.
Opening the innings with Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul is batting throughout the innings but due to the inconsistent middle-order, the Punjab franchise registered just two victories in the tournament so far. The inclusion of Chris Gayle strengthened their middle order and time will decide the fate of the franchise in the coming days.
KL Rahul has a magnificent batting average of 74.67. His strike rate is 134.84, and he has slammed 38 fours and 15 sixes in this tournament thus far. It will be interesting to see if the Karnataka-based star can turn things around in the second half of the season.
