IPL 2016: Five cricketers who might be playing their last IPL
When the IPL started, people said it was a young man’s tournament. But the aging stars have proved this adage wrong time and again. They have brought in their valuable experience in the shortest format of the game and have added a stability to this format’s volatility and a method to the madness.
However all good things come to an end and some of these old warhorses might well be playing their last IPL. Let’s have a look at five of them.
#1 Zaheer Khan
Zaheer Khan, 37, will be leading the Delhi Daredevils for the first time and might well be playing the IPL for the last time. “Zak”, as he is fondly called, has always been a natural leader in the past, even though he has never captained India. While playing for his country, the left-armer has always reduced MS Dhoni’s burden by shepherding the younger bowlers and even setting fields for them from time to time
Daredevils’ young fast bowlers like Mohd. Shami, Joel Paris, and Nathan Coulter-Nile would like to pick Zak’s brain while playing under him this season. The former Indian pacer has to bring in all his experience while leading this bunch of young and talented cricketers if the Daredevils are to spring a major surprise this season.
