In these seven games of 2020 IPL, we’ve seen some magnificent knocks, and here are 5 of the best matches of the first week of competition.
1. Ambati Rayudu
Ambati Rayudu has scored 71 runs from 48 balls in the first match of IPL 2020 against Mumbai Indians. In IPL 2020, Ambati Rayudu did not display any rust against his former team of MI in the season. He stepped up to hit 6 fours and 3 sixes in his innings in the absence of Suresh Raina.
Sadly, the batsman from Hyderabad suffered a blow who removed him from RR and DC. It is predicted that he will return for CSK’s next war with SRH.
2. Rohit Sharma
Rohit Sharma has scored 80 runs from 54 runs in the fifth match of IPL 2020 against Kolkata Knight Riders. Having followed announcing the opening of the IPL 2020 batting, Rohit Sharma showed some signs of form versus CSK in the opening of the year before being cheaply discarded.
In his second match against KKR, however, the MI skipper took Pat Cummins and co-skier apart, which was an inning with 3 fours and 6 sixes, to notch up 80 runs off in only 54 balls. Rohit’s innings were cut off and pulled off and guaranteed his side would end up winning 49 runs. The Indian vice-captain in white-ball appears to be having a prolific IPL 2020 season.
3. Marcus Stoinis
Marcus Stoinis has scored 53 runs in 21 balls in the send IPL 2020 match against Kolkata Knight Riders. Stoinis will possibly not open the innings, as he did in the Big Bash League with great success, but he blurs down against KXIP.
The Aussie player scored well to lead his team to a target of 157/8, that he would defend with a Super Over. The Australian player finished with figures of 0/56 in the four overs. Chris Jordan bore his attack to the brunt. Stoinis even bowled 3 consecutive points while Kings XI Punjab only required one run for winning the game at the above-mentioned Super Over.
4. KL Rahul
KL Rahul has scored 132 runs in total 69 balls in the sixth IPL 2020 match against the RCB team. Rahul has undoubtedly been playing the best innings to date in IPL 2020 to register by his former RCB squad, which is a captain’s highest performance, as well as the highest Indian ever.
His opponents’ captain Virat Kohli helped the KXIP skipper. But the death-acceleration master class led him to take over 80 runs from the last 5 overpasses of the innings. The RCB had never been in 207’s chase and came down to a 97-run humiliating loss.
5. Sanju Samson
Sanju Samson has scored 74 runs in 32 balls in the fourth match of IPL 2020. It came against the Chennai Super Kings. After a success over MI at the IPL 2020 season, CSK came in the game against RR with high confidence. But Sanju Samson’s score along with a bunch of just 1 four and 9 sixes, took it away.
The Kerala batsman liked the CSK spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Piyush Chawla in particular. The Men in Yellow were finally 16 runs short after a late attack by Faf du Plessis.
