Shikhar Dhawan (10.5 credits)
Shikhar Dhawan has scored half of the Capitals’ runs in his last four games. The southpaw has slammed consecutive centuries in the IPL, calling himself an unparalleled feat, while his 61-ball 106 went in vain in the previous round. One of the most free-flowing batsmen in the current era, he becomes an impossible person to deal with once Dhawan gets moving. With an average of 66.42 and 465 runs he scored, only KL Rahul in the Orange Cap race is behind him.
Shubman Gill (9.5 credits)
Shubman Gill was one of the most outstanding batsmen in this year’s edition, with 312 runs in 10 matches at 34.66. Gill is a technically sound and articulate batsman, and has already played some breathtaking knocks. He has also shown a willingness to try to identify the holes consistently. With his wide range of strokes and a strong run of form behind him, Gill will be in the fight to be one of the game’s top performers.
Kagiso Rabada (9.5 credits)
Kagiso Rabada is a fast bowler that can bowl with ferocious pace, accurate lengths, and the ability to swing the ball with ease. No wonder he dominated the wicket-taking charts with his guile this year. At an average of 14.33, Rabada had 21 wickets scalped. Not to forget, he bowls the majority of his Powerplay overs, and an economic average of 7.58 in 10 games, speaks volumes about his discipline with the ball.
