IPL 2017 (Indian Premier League 2017) can be considered as the most entertaining IPL seasons due its outstanding bowling, amazing batting, and magnificent pinch hitting. The major advantage of IPL is the to the cricket world is the growing bond between Indian and foreign players. Sam Billings—England ODI and T20 opener—is one of the players who is very overwhelmed with tremendously talented players of India; he also shares his dressing room with his present IPL team, Delhi Daredevils, members.
Though Delhi Daredevils are, at present, at the bottom stair in the IPL points table, Billings trusts the four jewels—Sanju Samson, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, and Karun Nair. He also considers them as the most exhilarating players that India has presently.
In the present scenario, Sanju Samson is the highest scorer of Delhi Daredevils with 289 runs in 8 outings in the IPL 2017 season. Of these 289 runs, 102 runs in 63 balls against Rising Pune Supergiant were the highlighted one amongst all. Rishabh Pant, the young batsman and wicketkeeper, has also given few outstanding performances with his batting; hence, he is being considered as a would-be successor to MS Dhoni—India’s former captain and expert batsman and wicketkeeper.
Pant, who made his appearance this February, was also successful in giving good performances and prove his potential. The 16-ball 38 against Kolkata Knight Riders performance and the 36-ball 57 versus Royal Challengers Bangalore performance were among the highlighted ones in this IPL 2017.
Karun Nair from Karnataka though not in form in this IPL, but his unbeaten 303 against England performance in the 5th Test in December 2016 in Chennai made him famous and got him in talks.
Last, but not the least, Shreyas Iyer—a 22-year-old Mumbaikar—also gave a brilliant performance with his double century (202) against Australia in February in a tour game making his way clear for the four-match Test series.
Delhi Daredevils have experienced a “not-so-good” start in this IPL 2017 by losing 6 of the 8 games they played till now and coming at the bottom of the points table.
However, Billings believes that the 4 giants of the team will surely make a comeback and bring Delhi Daredevils back in the game. Delhi Daredevils will be playing against Gujarat Lions today and Billings hope that his assumption will come true.
