IPL 2018: 3 debutant pacers who have impressed the most this season
The IPL has entered the most important phase where all the teams are battling hard to find a spot in the top four positions of the points table.
There have been proven performers for each team while some of the costly buys have failed to justify their price tag.
The batsmen have taken this season by storm as totals in excess of 200 have mostly been chased down. Most of the bowlers have had a season to forget as they have been belted away for runs badly.
However, there have been some exceptional pacers who have defied the odds and have managed to put decent performances to their name.
Here, we will look at those pacers who have impressed us the most.
#3 Liam Plunkett
Liam Plunkett has been in prolific form this season with the Delhi Daredevils. After initially going unsold in the auction, he was called up by the Delhi Daredevils as a replacement for the injured Kagiso Rabada.
Plunkett has continued to improve game after game. He has impressed everyone with his bowling exploits where he took figures of 3/17 in his first ever game in the IPL. His efforts went in vain as Delhi Daredevils failed to chase a modest target of 144.
Plunkett's combination of pace and swing has troubled most of the batsmen. He has played a total of 5 games so far this season and has taken 4 wickets at a steady economy of 8.72.
Delhi's fortunes could have changed had Plunkett been included in the XI as soon as he replaced Rabada.
