IPL Season 10: IPL 2017 Teams List and Players
Last season of the Indian Premier League was undoubtedly its most exciting edition since the tournament’s conception. Not only a lot of cricket records were broken, but also the fans were kept heavily entertained throughout the season. The 2017 edition of the IPL is set to start from 5th April, as the BCCI revealed the schedule for the league. In this post, we take a look at how the eight teams have set up for this upcoming edition of the IPL. Let us take a look at some of the key players for every team.
First up are Gujarat Lions, who finished on top of the league table by sailing high on the backs of Suresh Raina and Brendon McCullum. They also had the likes of Dwayne Bravo, Dwayne Smith and Aaron Finch, who dominated the battling attack for the Lions and led them to finish the group stage with 18 points.
Next up are Delhi Daredevils, who built a squad comprising of many young players. Even though they had a poor form, Quentin de Kock, Carlos Brathwaite and Rishabh Pant showed a lot of promise for the future. Their bowling was quite strong too, with Zaheer Khan and Imran Tahir leading the way.
Kings XI Punjab once again finished at the bottom of the table, for their second consecutive season. They had a decent squad with the likes of Shaun Marsh and Glen Maxwell, who left the squad owing to injury and personal reasons. While others such as Hashim Amla, Murali Vijay and Mohit Sharma tried to handle the situation, their efforts ended in disappointment.
Considering their neighbors from the East, we have Kolkata Knight Riders who finished at the fourth place in the table. Gautam Gambhir captained the side brilliantly, while Andre Russell and Yusuf Pathan held the fort in the middle order. They also had Shakib Al Hasan and Sunil Narine in the squad, to balance their overseas performers.
Moving on to the Mumbai Indians, they entered the event as the defending champions. But their flair faded pretty quickly as they failed to get a grip. Lasith Malinga was ruled out from the season due to injury, while Mitchell McClenaghan and Tim Southee handled the bowling. Considering their batting, Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu and Kieron Pollard remained to be their key players.
As for their derby rivals Rising Pune Supergiants, they had a good squad which they eventually lost to injuries. Captained by M.S Dhoni, they boasted of players like Kevin Pietersen, Steve Smith and Mitchell Marsh. Their bowling was quite strong too, with Adam Zampa, R Ashwin and Ashok Dinda proving to be the impressive performers.
Moving on to the penultimate team, there’s Royal Challengers Bangalore, who were the runner-up. Their batting was the strongest in the season, with AB De Villiers and Virat Kohli dominating the show ruthlessly. They also had Shane Watson, Yuzvendra Chahal and Sreenath Arvind, to balance the team on the bowling front.
Lastly, there are the victors Sunrisers Hyderabad, who won the competition in great style.They were a consistent side with Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner leading the charge of the opening order, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mustafizur Rahman remained to be among the highest wicket takers in the League this season. The IPL Points table will be updated here match by match.
