IPL 2019: The biggest hitter of each team
The IPL is all about runs and entertainment for cricket fans. Big hitters are an integral part of T20 cricket and IPL is no exception. The teams which have enjoyed success at the IPL for a long time have had several big hitters in their ranks.
A team cannot hope to win T20 games without scoring a lot of runs. Hence, having clean strikers of the ball who are not afraid to take the attack to the opposition right from the word go irrespective of the nature of the wicket is extremely imperative. Hence, there is no wonder why these players are labeled as crowd-pullers.
In this article, we will take a look at the biggest hitter of every team in IPL 2019.
Rajasthan Royals - Jos Buttler
The Rajasthan Royals have two very fine England players Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler in their ranks, both of whom are gigantic strikers of the cricket ball. But given the performance in the last 12 months, Buttler has an edge over his fellow teammate Stokes. His IPL strike rate of 150 is the evidence of this fact.
Jos Buttler has been one of the most destructive T20 batsmen in modern-day cricket. Buttler is a 360-degree player who can exploit any corner of the ground with ease. His power, combined with elegance and charismatic technique is a wonderful treat to watch for the cricket lovers.
Sunrisers Hyderabad - David Warner
David Warner has been the best batsman for the Orange Army in their IPL history. Warner has always led from the front with the bat for them and has emerged as the Orange Cap winner in 2015 and 2017. Warner's consistency for SRH is unmatched and there are very few openers who are better than David Warner in IPL at the moment.
When it comes to big hitting, it is beyond doubt that Warner is the best SRH have got. Warner has the ability to provide quickfire starts even on slow pitches. His devastating strike rate ensures that SRH gets off to a flying start more often than not. His strike rate is 142 and has hit 160 sixes from just 114 games.
