We are into the playoffs of IPL 2016. Gujarat Lions, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders are the top four teams. While RCB and GL play the first Qualifier at Bangalore. SRH will meet KKR in the eliminator at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, New Delhi. The winner of this match will have to play against the loser of the first Qualifier for a spot in the finals. As the matches frame out, here we have a look at the top 5 players to watch out for in the eliminator:
1. Sunil Narine:
Sunil Narine is back in form with his mystery spin and he showcased his skills in their last league stages match against the same team SRH. He bagged 3 wickets and gave away just 26 runs. Narine has an overall tally of 11 wickets in 10 matches in this IPL.

Normally, an off-spinner has the stock delivery, the arm ball and the faster one and if you are really good with the variation, you will have the doosra as well. In addition to these, Narine bowls the carrom ball, the top spinner, the leg-spinner and the leg-spinning googly, which makes him a mystery spinners in real sense. In a big match like this, Narine is expected to stand up for his team.
For SRH: Work him for singles, unless you are to the pitch of the ball or if you know exactly which way it’s going to turn.
For KKR: Bring him in the powerplay, attack with close in fielders.
