IPL 2018: 5 Players who are the star performers after changing teams
These are the players who had a mediocre outing IPL last year but have performed exceptionally well in this season
Indian Premier League (IPL) has now reached in the second leg of the tournament and the competition is just getting intense with each and every match.
Teams like Chennai, Hyderabad and Punjab are sitting at the top of the league table. One of the main reasons why these teams have been so successful is the way team management had picked their players in the auction.
Players, who were not retained by their teams or the ones who had a mediocre IPL last season, were released by their respective teams. These players have now come out all guns blazing and are leading the charts with consistent performances.
Let us find out these players who have played amazing cricket up till now.
#5 Suryakumar Yadav (Mumbai Indians)
When it comes to Mumbai Ranji team, Suryakumar Yadav is the mainstay of this team and also captained the side in the past. In contrast, he played only one match for Mumbai Indians (MI) till now.
Initially, Suryakumar was in the MI team but was let go ahead of the IPL 2014 auction. He was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and since then, he had been the fulcrum of the team and played the finisher's role perfectly.
After a mediocre outing for KKR in the last season, Suryakumar was again bought by MI. He has been in a great form after acquiring the opening slot and has scored 283 runs in 8 matches with 2 fifties. He is now the trump card of this side and will play a crucial role going into the later stages.
