Five Players Who Can Lead Two New IPL Teams in 2020
With Indian Premier League (IPL) Governing Council mulling to introduce two new IPL teams for the twelfth edition of the lucrative league. We’ve already seen some captains getting off the radar, whereas, most of the leaders had inspired their teams to script the glory.
So far, twelve editions had witnessed ups and downs with Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians (MI) topping the title list with tour trophies. Also, MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings (CSK) had won three titles apart from two from Kolkata Knight Riders (CSK) co-owned by Shah Rukh Khan.
The professional domestic Twenty20 league had witnessed a sudden surge post-2010 after an ideal start to the cash-rich league. It had also witnessed ten teams partaking in the T20 league for a couple of editions which has already given the idea to organisers regarding the competition.
Notably, teams have had ushered many captains since the inception of the IPL. We’ve also witnessed some bizarre moves amid IPL seasons.
Meanwhile, cool, calm and composed skipper plays a pivotal role in setting up his team, whereas, aggressive captain subsequently adds more to the dressing room. Thus, the combination has equally a role to play in such competitions.
Here’s are the five players who can lead two new IPL teams in 2020:
The classical approach of the England captain Eoin Morgan could be handy in the shortest version of the game. Leading Englis team in the limited-overs’ leg, Morgan had evolved as a leader.
Known for his down to earth approach, Morgan is an astute thinker who digs deep to keep his troops ready for any challenge.
The 32-year-old Morgan had featured in 268 T29 in which he had amassed 5652 runs. Despite his average of 25.8, Morgan is the one who many would want to have a go as a team leader.
The southpaw had already featured in 52 IPL matches in which he had amassed 854 runs at an average of 21.35. He has four half-centuries to his name.
Besides, Morgan had represented Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
