The entertainers of IPL


Alright, all the heart patients stay away from the television sets when either CSK or SRH plays. The nerve wrecking moments they are offering in their encounters are just amazing and surely heart pounding. So all you heart patients don't tune into either Star Sports or Hotstar when these two are featured.

After being banned from the IPL for last two years, the comeback of the mighty CSK was just amazing; they were sure about their strategy during the auction, but no one thought that the aged kings would wage such a war at this big stage.

Albeit the kings might be aged the experience they bring to the table is enormous and it is clearly evident in their approach this season. Managing to build the same core, CSK has been flamboyant in their approach.

With Rayudu being the sheet anchor across all the encounters, each senior player has stepped up during the time of crunch, shows the stability and balance of the team. Closing out on the positive side in almost all their encounters in the late 20th over has been the talk of the IPL so far.

Vintage Bravo, buoyant Raina, mesmerizing Dhoni, energetic Billings, talented Chahar, and unswerving Rayudu are the players behind whom the Super Kings are waging their battle.

While the story of CSK is all about chasing down the mighty targets, the Nawabs of Hyderabad are causing heart attacks by defending modest totals.

The Aftermath of Ball Tampering was pretty strict and Sunrisers has been the victim of it as their leader was banned from playing the IPL this season. With the reputation of being a solid bowling unit, the Sunrisers have lived up to their reputation by conceding least amount of runs and picking up most wickets this season.

Winning their last two encounters by defending 132 and 118 respectively, Sunrisers showed us how to go about with the things in such low scoring blinders.

While Bhuvi and big Billy led the attack in the initial encounters, it was all up to the youngsters to deliver in the last couple of matches as their experience campaigners were in the hut after being ruled out with injuries.

Sandeep Sharma, Siddharth Kaul, Basil Thampi, Shakib, and the wizard Rashid are the players who are sailing the ship of Sunrisers with Kane being the Captain of the ship.

Thus far CSK and SRH were the entertainers of IPL 2018. Will someone take up their role or will they continue in their roles respectively?

Substantial Delhi Daredevils

The team which has seen a lot of ups and downs in terms of their core stability is Delhi Daredevils. With the likes of Sehwag, Gambhir, Nehra, and Mishra, Delhi started off their campaign in 2008 as one of the favorites to win the championship. However, they just fell short of a couple of steps to clinch the title.

To further strengthen the things next year, Delhi signs in Dirk Nannes the quicky from Australia. Under the leadership of Gambhir DD topped the table and yet again dropped short of their maiden championship title.

From 2010 until 2017, Delhi has faced a lot of criticism for not performing up to their standards. Reaching playoffs only once in a span of 8 years is a record that needs to be flushed down the gutter. 2012, was one of their successful seasons among the last eight, thanks to the likes of Kevin Pietersen, Mahela Jayawardena, and Ross Taylor. 

With Delhi having a capricious core, it was all up to the management to establish a steady and a solid core; and they have …
