IPL 2020 is going to start soon and all the eight franchises are focusing to make their strong start in the new IPL season. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will host the complete IPL 2020 between 19th September and 10th November 2020.
Just like the Indian cricketers, the overseas cricketers are equally important for every IPL team. As an IPL team can choose a maximum of four overseas cricketers in the playing XI, every team generally tries to select their best four overseas cricketers in every game.
Well, some IPL teams have highly strong overseas cricketers and these teams majorly depend on their performances.
Here we are talking about the top three teams who are majorly depended on the overseas cricketers during the IPL 2020
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)
Australian cricketer, David Warner has returned to the captaincy role of the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) for the IPL 2020. Under his captaincy, SRH won their maiden IPL trophy in 2016 edition.
Their success in batting is currently hugely depended on the performances of the overseas cricketers. David Warner and English wicket-keeper batsman Jonny Bairstow are the most dangerous opening partners while their previous captain, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson has also the ability to control the innings.
They also have Mitchell Marsh and Fabian Allen, but they are unlikely to be the first-choice players. SRH middle-order batting success is majorly depending on the Indian cricketer Manish Pandey.
SRH have the strong Indian pace bowling line-up which makes the Aussie pacer Billy Stanlake as the second choice bowler for the side. However, Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan and/or all-rounder Mohammad Nabi are favourite for the spin-bowling option.
So, the overall success of the SRH team in the IPL 2020 is majorly depended on the overseas players.
