The 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL) is just a couple of days away from the conclusion.
Chennai Super Kings have qualified for yet another final. They will be playing their 7th final in nine attempts. Now they will face either Sunrisers Hyderabad or the Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday to decide the winner.
Kolkata has looked a very good side and will be a challenge for Hyderabad on Friday. Meanwhile, the performance of some of the all-rounders has been the reason why Kolkata Knight Riders are on the verge of reaching yet another IPL final.
Sunil Narine and Andre Russell have been the trump cards for Kolkata. The all-rounders have also been quite effective for other teams. They have provided the much-needed balance which has kept the franchises in the positive state of mind.
On occasions, it had also allowed the captain to play an extra bowler or a batsman depending upon the situation of the match.
So with the competition set to end in a couple of days’ time, let us have a look at five best all-rounders from the tournament so far.
Shakib Al Hasan
The Sunrisers Hyderabad all-rounder has been quite impressive in the season so far. The southpaw has looked in good touch with the bat. He has also done the job with the ball in both powerplay and the middle overs.
Shakib has become a permanent fixture for Hyderabad and has been part of all the 15 matches they have played in the competition so far.
The southpaw has accumulated 188 runs at an average of 21. He has also been quite effective with the ball bagging 13 wickets in the competition at an economy rate of 8.01.
Sunrisers Hyderabad bought him for just Rs 2 crores in the IPL Auctions. He has been quite impressive and will play a critical role in Hyderabad’s knockout clash against the Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday.
