IPL 2014: The Fearsome Finishers

So, cricket's annual festival is back again. Today, I would dedicate my article to the people, without whom, not only the IPL, but also the T20 format of the game would have been unsuccessful - The Fearsome Finishers. In this slam-bang format of the game, the last 5 overs are most watchable and interesting. And thus, a T20 team seems to be incomplete without good finishers. These players may give nightmares to bowlers. The openers set the tone of a match, but these are the players who execute the starts. Besides, these players are also known save a team after both the openers and the upper middle order fails. Here we would take a look at the best finisher of each IPL side.

#1 MS Dhoni

Arguably, the best finisher in the cricketing world, it will be Mahendra Singh Dhoni's 7th year as the captain of  the Chennai Super Kings campaign. Known for his trademark "Helicopter" shot, he is really a utility player as he can successfully handle the positions of the captain, wicket-keeper and certainly a "fearsome finisher"! His power-packed performance will certainly be a treat-to-watch for his fans. But his recent injury woes and form is a concern for the squad.

Besides, Dwayne Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja can also play a good hand at the tail end of an innings.
