Top 11 Best Players In The IPL 2018! Who Is At #1?

Holla!! Its IPL season again, and the celebration of this season has already begun. The last moment thriller that CSK portrayed during the first match!! Would you forget that fastest fifty of KL Rahul? Who wouldn't want to witness the Gayle storm, be it for Bangalore or for Punjab? Kholi’s never-ending struggle to lift his team. This is IPL for you my dear friends, it has it all in it, the ups, the downs, the lowest scores, the highest scores, the fights, the laughter’s and many more. It’s a season of celebration indeed.

About 20 matches are coming to an end, we have tried to form our best 11 from these matches. It’s just our opinion and you have every right to point out anything wrong at us. I say again, these are just our opinions and only the first 19 matches were considered while compiling this team.

1. KL Rahul

His fastest fifty in Punjab's opening match just showed us what a dangerous batsmen he can be. Combined with both class and power hitting, he would be my strike batsman.

2. Chris Gayle

What a comeback by the universal boss, half century in the first match and a century in the 2nd match. If this man gets going then surely I would not want to be in the opposite team. The both dream openers who I would have loved if they had opened for the RCB.

Yes, the universal boss stands in non-strikers end.

3. Sanju Samon (Wk)

Although he doesn’t keep for his team, I couldn’t find a better wicketkeeper batsman other than him who could fill this slot. KL Rahul was there, but I’d rate him more as batsman than as a wicket keeper. And yes, we have Sanju Samson as our one down batsman.

4. Virat kohli (C)

This man, undoubtedly one of the best in the world, has the ability to take his team to the winning side single handedly. Even though he plays best as one down batsman, I think he has the maturity to play when his team needs. So, Samson comes ahead of Virat, who is most suited as a opener or a one down batsman. And yes, he’ll be our captain.

5. Nitish Rana

The talk of the town, already with 2 man of the match awards in 4 games, has the ability to strike big and also support players like Virat by rotating the strike. So, at number 5 comes Nitish Rana, who can bowl a few overs' as well.

6. Kurnal Pandya

The left arm orthodox bowler has the ability to change the match even with the ball as well as his bat. His ability to strike big is a big advantage to the team.

7. Andre Russell

The Jamaican all-rounder made a comeback with his 36 balls 88runs against CSK. His bowling is yet to come back to the track. But it’ll be just a matter of time with a level of confidence he is moving forward with. So, at number 7 we have our dangerous Andre Russell.

8. Dwayne Bravo

With the ability to change the match at any condition, he showed us what he can do in the opening match with Mumbai Indians. So, at number 8 we have Dwayne Bravo as our 3rd all-rounder.

9. Chris Woakes

I take him as our main bowler and not as our all-rounder, as we have a power packed batting line up, I don’t think it would come on his shoulder to finish the match. But, its IPL guys anything can happen here. The main contender for purple cap has shown his ability in bowling with a decent bowling average.

10. Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Having a best economy in the fast bowlers category, he is one of the best in this format. Yet to start his hunt for the purple cap, but I guarantee you, he’ll be in the top 5.

11. Mayank Markande

There were a lot of competition for this slot, but looking at the way he is bowling I could not miss out the present purple cap holder. So the leggie comes in for the 11the spot.

So, here we have our best 11 with a top fire packed opening, with a reliable middle order, and a dangerous finishers and class bowlers.
