Indian batsmen have been in outstanding form in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2018). These days, young batters don’t show too much respect to bowlers in T20 cricket and believe in expressing themselves right from the first ball of the game.
Well, we can’t blame them too much because T20 is a very shot format and everything happens very quickly in the middle. One good (or bad) over can change the complexion of the game and this is why ‘big hitting’ has become a very important aspect of batting in T20 cricket.
In IPL 2018, Indian batsmen, both young and established, have been in outstanding form. The likes of MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and others have scored runs consistently for their teams and contributed in winning causes. On the other hand, the young guns like Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, Shreyas Iyer, Surya Kumar Yadav, Nitish Rana and other have impressed one and all with their good, consistent batting in IPL 2018.
In this post, we have shared some childhood pictures of some of the destructive Indian batsmen who are doing well in IPL 2018. Have a look and share with your buddies.
1) Rohit Sharma
The captain of Mumbai Indians is one of the most destructive batsmen in the world. In IPL 2018, he has been changing his batting position to accommodate other batsmen in the playing XI and this is one of the reasons why he has scored less runs than he usually does.
2) Virat Kohli
The dynamic and dashing captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has been scoring runs consistently but his team is not doing well.
3) MS Dhoni
MS Dhoni has been the biggest surprise package of IPL 2018. After facing a lot of criticism for his low strike rate and inability to finish the games, Dhoni decided to answer his critics with his bat, and in his famous yellow jersey. The King of Chennai has been smashing the ball as well as anyone can.
4) Sanju Samson
The young wicketkeeper-batsman from Kerela returned to his favourite IPL franchise Rajasthan Royal and made an impact straight away. He is one of the leading run scorers of IPL 2018 so far and has impressed one and all with his dynamic display of batting.
5) Hardik Pandya
Hardik Pandya is one of the most exciting all-rounders in world cricket. In IPL 2018, he has made a couple of good contributions with his bat and ball. Pandya’s career picked pace only after his good performances in IPL for Mumbai Indians.
6) Shreyas Iyer
The young captain of Delhi Daredevils in red-hot form in IPL 2018. He is one of the leading run scorers and has been anchoring Delhi’s batting department from number 3 position. After his good show in IPL 2018, many fans and pundits believe that he has made a very strong case for himself for selection in the national team.
