The Indian Premier League (IPL) met its conclusion last night with the Sunrisers Hyderabad winning their maiden title. Just like every season in the past, this edition was also a bumper hit where fans were treated with some intriguing contests, especially in the second half of the tournament when the fight for the top 4 slots became intense. It was a fantastic season for the Indian players too. They reaped the benefits of playing in home conditions and came out as match-winners for their respective teams. Therefore, it would be interesting to see how a lineup consisting of only Indian players would look like. So, here in this list, we try to list out the best possible Indian XI of the tournament.
1. Virat Kohli – RCB (C):
No words can describe the way Virat Kohli performed this season. Despite a disheartening loss in the final, Virat swept away the post-match presentation ceremony. He batted in a Bradmanesque form and plundered 973 runs in 16 matches to finish as the Orange Cap holder. He had an inspirational run this season, leading his team from the bottom half of the table to the finals almost single-handedly.
