Death bowling is one of the toughest jobs for the fast bowlers as the batsman has developed so many shots and the old-fashioned yorkers remain the perfect solution for them. Lasith Malinga is one of the best exponents of the yorkers in the last decade and had a tremendous impact on various teams around the world.
The IPL franchises have realized that death bowling will be a key factor to their success in the tournament and it was evident in the auction that the good death bowlers have bagged hefty money. Chris Morris was the latest recipient of it going for a whopping 16.25 crores to the Rajasthan Royals due to one of his abilities being bowling yorkers.
IPL 2021: Rating All 8 Teams On The Basis Of Their Death Bowlers:
8.Royal Challengers Bangalore: 6.5/10
Royal Challengers Bangalore’s bowling attack has been taken apart by the opponents over the years and most of their success has been denied due to their death bowling being very poor. Morris did a good job last year at the death overs and it reflected in the results immediately as RCB reached the playoffs after three years.
RCB’s new recruit Kyle Jamieson will have to fill the tough shoes as RCB with his high price tag while Saini or Siraj will have to keep it tight from the other end. Kohli will be looking to have one over of Chahal in the death as he is the trump card in the bowling lineup. Kane Richardson, Daniel Sams, and Daniel Christian will be the other options for Kohli provided they make the playing XI.
