Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Romario Shepherd were his victims. SRH could only manage three runs of the final over, giving Lucknow a win by 12 runs.

2. Shreyas Iyer (54 runs against DC)

An injury forced him out of the first half of IPL 2021 and Rishabh Pant was handed the captaincy. Although Shreyas Iyer made a comeback in the second half, Delhi continued to retain Pant as captain. Eventually, he decided to part ways with the franchise and enter the mega auction. He was picked by KKR for a whooping INR 12.25 crore and was later announced as their captain.

1. Kuldeep Yadav (4/35 against KKR)

His four wickets included Shreyas Iyer, Pat Cummins, Sunil Narine and Umesh Yadav. While, he was out of the second leg of IPL 2021 due to injury, Kuldeep almost warmed the bench for the last couple of seasons in KKR. The cricketer from Uttar Pradesh was not in his best of forms, and the franchisee did not back him either.
