Munro is one Kiwi cricketer who recently smashed the Sri Lankan side by helping New Zealand’s team score 50 runs off only a scant 14 balls. With Indian conditions that favour batting and his ability to knock off sixes effortlessly, Munro is certainly a cricket player worth having on your radar.
AB de Villiers is captain of South Africa’s 1-day and test teams and his batting prowess tells you why. With a strike rate that is over 130, de Villiers is a pro at scoop shots and reverse sweeps, being able to play the entire field and effortlessly sweep the ball to the boundary.
Although Amir was banned by the ICC for his involvement in a spot-fixing scandal, the Pakistani player has bounced back rather strongly. Having recently taken 31 wickets in 24 T20 matches, the bowler is certainly one to reckon with.
This 25-year-old British batsman may not have as much experience as batting stalwarts from other teams, but what he lacks in years of experience he certainly makes up for in the talent department. Credited with the 3 quickest 1-day-international centuries for England’s team, Buttler was recently snapped up by Mumbai Indians for £3,85,000 to make a debut at the IPL.
As the Indian side gears up to bag the title for a second time, Virat Kohli has a key role to play. With a batting average of 51 and a strike rate of 136, Kohli’s fierce batting style and go-getter attitude is what can help the Indian team help eliminate competition.
