The forthcoming season of world's most popular T20 league isn't too far away, as it is scheduled to kick-off on March 23.
The cash-rich T20 league IPL has always been a great platform for cricketers from all over the world to showcase their aptitude and to make a name of themselves in the cricket world. Over the years, many players have shot to fame by performing well in this league.
Here, we will take a look at 3 T20 veterans who'll want to make a mark in the upcoming edition of Indian Premier League.
#3 David Willey (Chennai Super Kings)
A tremendous T20 all-rounder from England, David Willey is a skilled left-arm pacer and a devastating left-hand batsman. He is someone who can change the course of the match with both bat and ball.
The English all-rounder has a lot of experience of playing in the shortest format of the game as he has played a total of 171 matches in the format. He has picked 160 wickets at an average of 23.30 and economy rate of 7.89 from 148 innings.
His batting is equally good, as he has scored 2545 runs from 128 innings at an average of 24.23 scoring with an impressive strike rate of 140.76. He has smashed 11 fifties and 2 centuries in his T20 career. It shows how good he has been in the shortest format of the game.
In IPL 2018, David Willey came as an injury replacement for CSK and played just 3 matches in the tournament. His performance with the ball in these three matches was not impressive, as he took 2 wickets at a mediocre average of 47.5 with an economy rate of 9.5.
But this time he will surely want to make his mark and could set the IPL 2019 on fire if he gets enough opportunities.
