The Indian Premier League 2020 broke several records in terms of social media engagement and viewership this year. The 13th season of the IPL featured top-level competition. Almost every top cricketer on the planet participated in this competition. This year, the challenge was a bit different for all players.
Generally, the players have months of match practice heading into the IPL season, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Indian cricketers entered the tournament with zero match practice. The foreign players had played some games. Still, playing 14 matches in six weeks in the hot and humid conditions of the United Arab Emirates was a challenge for them.
Many big names struggled to get going in IPL 2020. However, there were also some standout performances in the league.
In this article, we will have a look at the one player from each team who impressed the most in the 13th IPL season:
1. Chennai Super Kings – Sam Curran
The Chennai Super Kings had a forgettable season in IPL 2020. The Chennai-based franchise had finished in the top four in every season that they played. Unfortunately, their campaign ended before the playoffs this year. That said, there were still a few positives for the three-time champions in 2020.
While Ruturaj Gaikwad won everyone’s hearts with his hat-trick of half-centuries in the last three matches, all-rounder Sam Curran delivered the goods in both departments. Dwayne Bravo was unavailable for the first few matches, which prompted MS Dhoni to give the Englishman his maiden CSK cap.
Curran starred for the team in their win against the Mumbai Indians. He ended the season with 13 wickets in 14 matches. Besides, he also scored 186 runs at a strike rate of 131.91. With his all-round brilliance in IPL 2020, the southpaw has cemented his place in the Chennai Super Kings for the next few seasons at least.
