All-rounders always play a very crucial role in a cricket match. In IPL history, we have experienced how the all-rounders play strong effective roles for their team.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has recently confirmed the timeline for the IPL 2020 as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will host it between 19th September and 10th November 2020. Now, the players are getting ready for this exciting IPL edition.
Here we are talking about the top five all-rounders who will be the centre of attraction in the IPL 2020.
Chris Morris (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
During the last pre-auction trading window, South African all-rounder Chris Morris joined his new IPL side Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) after his previous IPL team Delhi Capitals (DC) traded him out.
In the last IPL edition, Morris performed impressively with the ball in hand as he was the joint-second most wicket-taker for the DC despite playing nine matches (13 wickets). He was also in very good form during the BBL 2019/20, where the right-arm pacer finished as the joint second most wicket-taker (22 wickets).
So, the RCB is expecting some useful bowling from Morris in the upcoming IPL season. He is also a useful lower-order batsman who likes to smash the ball very hard.
After playing 61 IPL matches, Morris has taken 69 wickets, while the right-handed batsman has also scored 517 runs (average 27.21; strike-rate 157.62).
