The IPL 2020 is happening amidst the pandemic. Players from everywhere are coming back in the game after a long time. And this year, even fantasy cricket is creating a huge buzz among cricket fans.
The Indian Premier League gather around all the talented cricketers from around the world. It is what makes the tournament extremely competitive and entertaining. There are eight teams in IPL, and each has the best players from the globe.
The tournament brings massive talent in one place. This also affects the fantasy league because every team strives to reach the playoffs, making a tough competition for every player. With everyone in the squad having immense talent, it gets tough for some players to make it through the playing 11. This leads to hard choices, and even the most talented players have to be on the bench during the game.
Given below are the four players who are incredibly talented but had to be on the bench in Indian Premier League 2020.
1. Chris Lynn
The big-hitter and an opener, Chris Lynn, is a part of Mumbai Indians. Chris Lynn also holds a record of most sixes in BBL, making him a famous ipl fantasy player. In IPL 2019, Chris Lynn was a part of the Kolkata Knight Riders and had a strike rate of 139. This year he will be in the MI squad but is most likely to be on the bench.
Due to the batting line-up of Mumbai Indians, Chris Lynn is a backup for the team as there is Quinton De Kock and Rohit Sharma set at the top order. Also, MI follows the RHB-LHB batting option, which is unlikely to change.
2. Dale Steyn
One of the best fast bowlers, Dale Steyn, is a part of Royal Challengers Bangalore. Even last year, he played with the same team, due to some injuries he had to miss the matches and eventually the World Cup.
RCB has players like AB de Villiers, Aaron Finch, Moeen Ali, and Chris Morris. Aaron Finch is bought to take the load off AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli. While Moeen Ali is in the squad because of his all rounder skills.
The team is also focusing on Indian bowlers like Umesh Yadav, Mohammad Siraj, and Navdeep Saini, from which two of them will be in the playing 11. So, it is likely that Dale Steyn will be on the bench most of the season.
3. Ajinkya Rahane
The next player on this list is our Indian batsmen, Ajinkya Rahane. He was traded to Delhi Capitals from Rajasthan Royals. Delhi Capitals have a batting order that starts with Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, and Rishabh Pant, making it difficult to fit Ajinkya Rahane in.
Even Delhi Capitals have the LHB-RHB batting combination, so if Ajinkya Rahane opened with Prithvi Shaw instead of Shikhar Dhawan, it would disrupt the batting order.
This will lead Ajinkya Rahane to miss most of the matches sitting on the bench. Though Ajinkya Rahane has played a few games, so far, we don’t know if it will be permanent. But whenever he plays, he becomes a famous player on a fantasy cricket app.
4. Kane Williamson
Kane Williamson is one best batsmen in the world. In the 2018 IPL season, he scored 735 runs with a strike rate of 142. In 2019, he scored only 156 runs, and both seasons he was the captain. But, in 2020, he was released from the captaincy, so we didn’t get to see this kiwi on the ground at the beginning of the season.
He played in some of the games in the middle of the season but was later back to the bench due to an injury. We might get a chance to see him in the remaining matches. After all, he is also a famous player in fantasy ipl.
