Yuzvendra Chahal has bagged a total of 23 wickets in the tournament at an economy of 7.54.
Prasidh Krishna has delivered some fine performances but has not been at his best and has leaked runs on some occasions. In 12 matches, he has 13 scalps at an economy of 8.19.
Kuldeep Sen was impressive in the first few matches but has returned wicket-less with an economy of over 10 in the last two matches.
The Kiwi pacer Trent Boult has to replicate his performance of the first half and would wish to pick up wickets in the powerplay overs.
Riyan Parag has had an average season yet again, barring a crucial knock of 56* against RCB, which helped Royals to secure a victory in that game. In 12 matches, he has scored only 135 runs at a strike rate of 153.40.
Ashwin has been intelligent with his variations to put the opposition batters under pressure. In 12 appearances, he has scalped nine wickets at an economy of 7.25.
Van der Dussen has scored only 22 runs in three innings. In the last league game, he remained unbeaten on 12 off 10 balls.
Devdutt Padikkal was shifted at number four to accommodate Jaiswal in the opening slot. This change has certainly brought the southpaw back into form as his recent two scores are read as 48 and 31.
Captain Sanju Samson has done well to provide contributions but has not been able to convert his starts into a big one, which has been his story for the most part of his career. In 12 matches, he has 327 runs at an average of 29.72, with two fifties.
Yashasvi Jaiswal has rather been average in the ongoing season. After an ordinary performance in the first three innings, he was dropped. However, the southpaw returned and smashed 68 off 41 balls against Punjab Kings (PBKS) and was named Player of the Match as well.
Jos Buttler has been terrific and is the leading run-scorer in the tournament with 625 runs at an average of 56.81, including three tons.
