IPL 2018: Key all-rounders for each IPL side
Three spinners, as well as five pace bowling all-rounders, made it to the list.
There is always a puzzlement in T20 cricket as far as team combinations are concerned, whether to go with the seven batsmen - four bowlers combination, or with a surplus batsman in the playing eleven. That is the reason why the teams opt for all-rounders in their side to provide much-needed stability, giving them sufficient batting depth and an extra bowling option as well.
Here are the best all-rounders from each IPL side, on whom the teams will lean on in the 2018 season.
#1 Dwayne Bravo (Chennai Super Kings)
The Carribean all-rounder is one of the most loved cricketers across the globe, having participated in almost every franchise-based league. He is the current record-holder for taking the most number of wickets (87) in the shortest format in a single calendar year.
