There are so many incredible players that it’s really difficult to pick just 16 from all team. However, here are the names I would pick for my dream team, “2 from each team”:
Chennai Super Kings – MS Dhoni; he would be the captain of my team. Dwayne Bravo, an all-rounder who can fit in any role adequately.
Delhi Daredevils – Glen Maxwell, for his hard-hitting style and unmatched energy on the field. Chris Morris; because he is an amazing all-rounder that can provide team strength at the tail end!
Kings XI Punjab – Axar Patel; he can bat well and is a very good bowler. David Miller; because he is a great batsman and an outstanding fielder!
Kolkata Knight Riders – Robin Uthappa, a sensible batsman who can stay on the field and provide support to the entire team. Mitchell Johnson; although he has slowed down, I would still bet on his bowling.
Mumbai Indians – Kieron Pollard; he is a great all-rounder. Mustafizur Rahman; given his recent balling record, I would have to be a fool not to pick him.
Rajasthan Royals – Ajinkya Rahane; every team requires a sensible and consistent batsman like him. Jaydev Unadkat; to create the magic of pace!
Royal Challengers Bangalore – AB de Villiers; one has to be a fool to not pick him. Tim Southee; he would lead the pace attack from the front.
Sunrisers Hyderabad – Rashid Khan Arman; an upcoming bowler who has already made headlines with his amazing skills. Bhubaneshwar Kumar; a consistent bowler who can deliver in any condition!
As you can see, I am much high on the all-rounders. Plus, my team’s strength would be the batting. Now, as for who will be in my playing 11, here are the names I would bet my life with:
1. MS Dhoni (captain)
2. Robin Uthappa
3. AB de Villiers
4. Glen Maxwell
5. David Miller
6. Ajinkya Rahane
7. Dwayne Bravo
8. Bhubaneshwar Kumar
9. Tim Southee
10. Mitchell Johnson
11. Rashid Khan Arman
(Yes, I am well aware that a team can have only 4 overseas players. But since it’s my dream team, leave the rules)
