5 IPL players who are performing well in ILT20
5. Wanindu Hasaranga
The Sri Lanka international often plays well when the ball turns and relatively keeps low. The leg-spinner is very dangerous in the middle overs and has once again proved his calibre for the Desert Vipers in the ongoing ILT20.
In three matches so far, the 25-year-old has picked up six wickets at an economy of 7.81. He is captain Colin Munro’s main weapon with the ball and is delivering on a consistent basis. However, given that the condition is tailor-made for the cricketer, Hasaranga can aim to get better. He eventually can as he often proves to be very dangerous at the business end of a tournament.
When it comes to his IPL numbers, Hasarnaga was the second-leading wicket-taker in the 15th edition of the competition. He clinched 26 wickets from 16 matches and was simply phenomenal in the middle overs. Playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore, he will once again aim to destroy opponents in a similar fashion in the next edition of the league.
