11. Jasprit Bumrah

He is the bowler that every batter will be afraid of. Slower ones, yorkers, bouncers, in-swingers, out-swingers, and many more are all in his arsenal. He is another all-phase bowler who can play any role in the team.

10. Anrich Nortje

Anrich Nortje was one of the most economical and fastest bowlers in the IPL. After missing the first half of the season due to Covid-19, he returned in the second half with a blistering pace and superb control.

9. Harshal Patel

His pitch-perfect yorkers and deceptive slower ones were the main reasons for RCB’s best economy of 8.61 in the death overs of IPL 2021. He also possesses a wide Yorker and a slower bouncer. If the pitch is dry and slow, his cutters will be extremely difficult to play.

8. Rashid Khan

Rashid Khan, Afghanistan’s premier leg spinner, walks into any T20 side in the world. Since his debut, he has been consistent, and no one has been able to crack his variations. He has always excelled for his team and has befuddled opponents with his dextrous tricks

7. Mahendra Singh Dhoni (C & wk)

MS Dhoni, on his current form, makes the XI due to his captaincy and wicketkeeping abilities. MS Dhoni is the best tactical captain in the world. He can get the best out of even the sub-par bowlers, as he demonstrated in the IPL 2021.

6. Ravindra Jadeja

He has the experience of playing alongside Hazlewood in the IPL, so he must have some good ideas about all his variations and tricks. He has extensive international experience, making him a highly valuable player.

5. Shimron Hetmyer

Shimron Hetmyer had the highest strike-rate of 168.05 among all the batters in this season of the IPL. He batted at 5/6 for the Delhi Capitals and played the position of finisher, which was not his natural game, and he did an excellent job.

4. Moeen Ali

Moeen Ali, who was purchased for a hefty 7 crore by the Chennai franchise, repaid all faith and investment in him with his performance. In the IPL 2021 season, Moeen scored 357 runs and took 6 wickets.

3. KL Rahul

KL Rahul, who was purchased by the Punjab Kings (then Kings XI Punjab) for a hefty sum of Rs.11 crore, has proven to be a valuable asset for the Punjab franchise, carrying the fragile batting order, wicketkeeping, and captaincy duties all by himself.

2. Venkatesh Iyer

Venkatesh entered the IPL with a bang, scoring a quickfire 41* against RCB. Then he followed it up with another match-winning innings against the Mumbai Indians, scoring 53 while KKR chased 156 in 15.1 overs.

1. Ruturaj Gaikwad

Ruturaj Gaikwad has matured over the years and possesses all of the characteristics of a legendary player. He has played some extremely difficult innings in the IPL 2021, demonstrating his ability to be a mentally strong player.
