Predicting the best and worst performer of all teams in IPL 2020
While teams have stalwarts to boast of, they also need to take care of players, who could end up faltering.

Best Performer- Kagiso Rabada
Kagiso Rabada was one of the primary reasons behind the Capitals’ impressive run last season. The speedster was DC’s standout bowler by a country mile. The pacer hardly let his skipper, Shreyas Iyer, down when he was brought on to pick up wickets. In 12 matches, Rabada churned out 25 wickets.
The pin-point yorker he bowled to Andre Russell in the Super Over at the Arun Jaitley Stadium remains to be an absolute spectacle. Rabada hasn’t had the best times ever since the IPL. But bearing in mind the quality he has, it’s a matter of time before the speedster gains back rhythm.
Worst Performer- Axar Patel
Axar Patel came to the limelight from the IPL itself, representing the Kings XI Punjab. The performances also helped him break into the Indian team. But gradually, he lost his mojo and isn’t in contention for a berth in the national side. The Gujarat cricketer has been playing IPL regularly.
Last year, he was a part of the Capitals and seemed off colour. In 14 matches, the left-arm spinner could only manage 10 wickets. Among the regular bowlers, he had the worst bowling strike-rate of 30.6, showing his travails. With the bat in hand, Patel managed a pretty mediocre average of 18.33.
