Mandeep Singh, a young batsman representing Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) has named his top five batsmen of the league so far. IPL has had a rich 12-year long history. It has seen a plethora of talent arise and has been a stage of producing world-class cricketers.
One among them has been Mandeep Singh. Mandeep began his IPL journey in 2012 and has been a decent talent. He has had the opportunity of playing with certain greats of the game including Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle.
Now, Mandeep Singh has come up with a list of his top 5 batsmen of the tournament so far, but he has made some interesting choices.
Mandeep Singh Picks His Top 5 IPL Batsmen Of All Time
Former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) player Mandeep Singh was asked to mention his top five batsmen in a recent Instagram live session with CricTracker. The Indian cricketer answered in a jiffy by including the likes of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle, David Warner and Andre Russell.
However, it came as a surprise to many that Mandeep’s list didn’t include ‘Mr. IPL’ Suresh Raina and his skipper, MS Dhoni. The two veterans have been a major driving force for CSK’s envious record in the cash-rich league, in terms of consistency with the willow in tough situations.
Dark Clouds Looms Large Over IPL 2020 Future
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is now looking at the October-November window for the IPL. But the move can be possible only if the ICC decides to postpone the 2020 T20 World Cup that is to be held in October, this year, according to some sources in the board.
On April 10, latest reports suggested that the BCCI is probing into the July window to conduct the IPL and it could take place behind closed doors.
However, all hopes have once again vanished as the BCCI. On Thursday suspended the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 indefinitely in the light of the coronavirus pandemic.
