Virat Kohli

Full NameVirat Kohli
Playing Category Batter
Playing RoleTop Order Batter
Batting StyleRight-Hand Bat
Bowling StyleRight-Arm-Medium
Debut2008
Current IPL TeamRoyal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)

Definitely, like every other youngster, Virat Kohli also dreamed of representing his nation in the gentleman’s game. Admittedly, Kohli is regarded as an adventurous batter with a dynamic playing style and strong technical skills. Meanwhile, Kohli has a strategic playing technique, making him an excellent batter. Instead of attempting massive hits, he prefers to play grounded shots that get runs between deep square leg and mid-on.

Moreover, Virat is appreciated for his cover drives, and he remains very effective in the midwicket cover areas. Certainly, Kohli is good at fielding because he can move quickly and possesses confident hands. However, Kohli is vulnerable to wide off-stump deliveries. Ultimately, bowlers target him with such deliveries, notably in Test and ODI matches. Consequently, this susceptibility has led to Kohli’s many dismissals.

Jasprit Bumrah

Full NameJasprit Jasbirsingh Bumrah
Playing CategoryBowler
Batting StyleRight-Hand Bat
Bowling StyleRight-Arm-Fast
Debut2016
Current IPL TeamMumbai Indian (2022)
Jasprit Bumrah didn’t play IPL 2023 due to a stress fracture.

Jasprit Bumrah, indeed, gained fame because of his unorthodox bowling style, and his elbows are a little way out. However, his run-up is short and starts with small stumbling steps. Undoubtedly, Bumrah is regarded as one of the finest bowlers. He has an exceptional bowling average speed of 142 km/h and a highest speed of 153 km/h.

Bumrah has an odd, stiff-armed action, yet he can bowl fast and has a unique point of release. Indeed, these bowling attributes cause trouble for the batters to time the ball. Undoubtedly, he has proven to be a game-changer and is often used in crucial overs by the Indian team. He often throws Yorkers and short-length balls outside the off-stump.

Bumrah bowls front-on, and this bowling action gains speed from the shoulders and back, ultimately increasing the risk of injury.

Ravindra Jadeja

Playing CategoryAll-Rounder
Batting StyleLeft-Hand Bat
Bowling StyleSlow Left-Arm Orthodox
Debut2009
Current IPL TeamMumbai Indians

Ravindra Jadeja completely dominated the Indian Premier League in 2008 with his all-round heroics. Consequently, Shane Warne referred to Ravindra Jadeja as “The Rockstar”. Unquestionably, Jadeja is an eccentric fielder, a more than capable left-arm spinner, and a gutsy batter in a nutshell. Overall, Jadeja owns all the capabilities and traits of a utility cricketer.

Jadeja’s absolute skill is bowling, with an average of 24.34, the 22nd-best in history, with a cutoff of 200 wickets. Since he is the fourth-best spinner, usually with a higher standard than seamers, and the best left-arm spinner. Evidently, Jadeja is an exceptional all-rounder, yet sometimes stumbles under pressure and plays below his abilities.

Sanju Samson

Full NameSanju Viswanath Samson
Playing CategoryWicketkeeper- Batsman
Batting StyleRight-Hand Bat
Fielding PositionWicket-Keeper
Debut2013
Current IPL TeamRajasthan Royals 

Sanju is hailed as a natural talent with excellent batting tactics and wicket-keeping abilities. Samson has quick hands, solid forearms, and outstanding coordination between his eyes and hands, which makes him a superb ball-timer. Additionally, he is a naturally aggressive hitter who typically plays between cover and fine leg.

He rarely advances along the track to play strokes and prefers to remain motionless at the crease. He plays straight and favors hitting the ball straight over the bowler’s head. Moreover, Sanju is a skilled fielder who usually fields in the outfields but is flexible enough to field anywhere in the ground. However, he is not very good at playing rotating strikes.

Over the years, Samson has received a lot of criticism for his unpredictable behavior. He has also frequently been attacked for his shot selection and temperaments.

Bowling Style Right-Arm Off spin
Debut2006
Current IPL TeamRajasthan Royals

Additionally, he can also throw an arm ball and a carom ball, which he utilizes in shorter formats. In the 2013 IPL, he amazed everyone by throwing leg-breaks and googlies.

Ashwin began his career as an opener batsman. Nevertheless, his skill and variety with the ball shocked the best players in the world. Moreover, his tendency to stand tough in highly pressure-exerting moments of the game makes him an integral part of the team. The only weakness in his bowling is that he can’t bowl doosra because it forces him to bend and straighten his arm, which is hard for him.

Shubman Gill

Full Name Shubman Gill
Playing Category Batter
Playing RoleOpening Batsman
Batting StyleRight-Hand Bat
Bowling StyleRight-Arm Offspin
Debut2018
Current IPL TeamGujarat Titans

Shubam Gill is a right-handed top-order batter from Punjab who is well known for his passion for massive runs and huge stikes. Gill’s batting technique involves his front foot slightly open and his hind foot crossed while staying within the crease. Most of his strokes consist merely of shifting weight backward or forward.

However, Gill continues to struggle against Australian bowlers like Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazelwood, which results in his easy dismissal. In his early overs of the game, he is very vulnerable to length around off stump. If the ball bounces a little higher, he is prone to nicking off behind the wicket.

Mohammed Shami

Full NameMohammed Shami Ahmed
Playing CategoryBowler
Batting StyleRight-Hand Bat
Bowling StyleRight-Arm Fast-Medium
Debut2013
Current IPL TeamGujarat Titans

Mohammad Shami is a right-handed fast bowler with capability to swing the ball. Naturally, he tends to move the ball off the seam forward and backward by using swing and reverse swing. His average bowling speed is 140 km/h, and his fastest speed is 153.2 km/h. Shami’s bowling success comes from how his wrist moves during his run-up and movement.

When Shami is searching for wickets, he frequently goes to leg with a slight shift of line of attack to the left. Therefore, he is one of the most lethal bowlers because of his deadly combination of wicket-taking with a reverse swing. As a result, he is regarded as “unplayable” in some forms.
