Bowling a Super-Over is one of the toughest jobs in white-ball cricket and one not only needs special skills but also the incredible temperament to pull it off.
Over the years, we have seen several bowlers make their mark amid relentless pressure and against rampaging batters. Today we discuss death-overs’ specialist bowlers of each team that IPL captains turn to when it comes to the Super Over:
Here’s a look at Team Wise One Bowler Who Can Bowl The Super-Over in IPL 2021:
SunRisers Hyderabad – Rashid Khan
Normally, you’d trust a seamer to bowl the Super Over, but then, it is hard to give it to someone else when you have a champion like Rashid Khan in your team.
Khan is a once-in-a-generation bowler, someone who can adapt to any game situation thanks to his precocious skills and brilliant temperament, and match-awareness.
The issue, however, for Khan has been that his batters never give him enough runs to defend and that is a major reason why he has failed to take his team past the finishing line in all three instances.
Take, for example, this season’s Super Over against Delhi Capitals where he had just 6 runs to defend against the likes of Rishabh Pant and Shikhar Dhawan.
Khan did his best and even took the game till the last ball, but, alas, it was not to be as the lack of a big target, meant that both Pant and Dhawan did not have to take undue risk and deal in singles.
