The Indian Premier League (IPL) is undoubtedly the biggest carnival in India and is ready to kickstart from Saturday, September 19. From time to time, IPL has witnessed many nail-baiting last-over finishes and thus it is often referred to as the best against the best.
There will be no limitations to the elation of the fans if a match gets tied and a Super Over is played, as the contest between the two best teams is extended and then they can see their favorite stars in action one more time trying to take their team over the finish line.
In the recent times, due to the immense competition in cricket, many matches witnessed the Super Over including the World Cup final last year. In this article, let us discuss about three franchises who have strong batsmen to represent them in the one-over eliminators if they happen.
Here is the list of teams with best batsmen for Super Over in IPL 2020: –
Royal Challengers Bangalore
Their best options: Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Aaron Finch.
RCB are certainly having one of the best batting lineups in the league with the likes of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Aaron Finch and Moeen Ali in their squad. With the depth in their batting lineup, RCB are having a decent chance of churning out some high scores in the coming IPL season.
The highest run-scorer in the history of the IPL, Kohli is a synonym for the word ‘class’ and scored four centuries in IPL 2016, becoming the only player to do so. Coming to this IPL, Virat has built more muscle in the lockdown and is getting ready to smash the ball powerfully along all the corners of the ground.
De Villiers is one of the most dangerous batsmen ever to have played the game and won many games single-handedly for his team. Considering his unorthodox shots and his skills with which he times the ball, he is the most difficult batsman to bowl, and having him in the Super Over puts RCB in a very good position.
RCB can rely on Finch if they lose a wicket in the super over considering his hard-hitting ability with the bat. Moeen Ali is also a good option for RCB to bat in the super over if the team management looks for a right- and left-hand combination. With all these tremendous players at the top, RCB can post a high score on the board in the Super Over.
