IPL 2018: Best overseas players combined XI
Indian Premier League happens to be one of the most competitive cricket leagues in the world. With IPL entering into its 11th season, it is expected to be a cracker of a contest.
IPL has been a platform to which players from all over the look at as an opportunity. Right from the Indian uncapped players to the overseas players, the colossal league provides an ideal platform for everyone to showcase their talent.
The overseas players have made a massive contribution all these years with some swashbuckling performances in the history of the tournament, and are certain to play a big role again in the coming years as well.
Here we bring you the best overseas playing-XI for the upcoming edition of IPL.
#1 Brendon McCullum (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
'Brash' - that is the word, Brendon McCullum, easily the greatest of all the Kiwi glovesmen, and one of their finest batsmen, uses to define himself.
The explosive batsman from Dunedin has been one of the best openers in the limited overs format and especially in T20s.
With Chris Lynn's future in IPL unknown, Brendon McCullum would be an obvious choice as an opener.
IPL Numbers- Matches: 103 | Runs: 2754 | Avg: 28.10 | S/R: 131.08
#2 David Warner (C) (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
David Warner has been one of the best players in T20 cricket.
Having played much of T20 cricket, Warner is one of the most experienced players to meet the format.
Warner happens to be one of the batsmen who starts the innings cautiously and builds on it brick by brick with an explosive touch to it.
Thus, the Australian has to be an ideal choice as a left-handed opener in any T20 playing XI.
