Virender Sehwag top 5 batsman: The playoffs of IPL 2023 is also over. The final match will be played between Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings on Sunday. For almost two months, 10 teams were sweating it out for a trophy and now on May 28, it will be decided who will become the champion. So far this season, the fans have got to see stormy batting. Many young players earned a name, while veteran players also appeared in their colors.
Kohli and Gill’s names were not included
Former India batsman Virender Sehwag named the top 5 batsmen for this season but surprisingly, the names of Orange Cap holder Shubman Gill and RCB star Virat Kohli are not included in this list. Shubman Gill has scored 851 runs in 16 matches, which includes three centuries and four half-centuries. Whereas Kohli has scored 639 runs in 14 matches. Two centuries and six half-centuries also came out of Kohli’s bat.
Sehwag gave top number to Rinku Singh
Talking about his five Pandavas, Sehwag said, ‘I have selected such five batsmen who changed the equation of this IPL. My first one is Rinku Singh of KKR. He gave the team victory by hitting 5 sixes in 5 balls. Rinku has done the feat which no one could even imagine. The former opener further said, Shivam Dubey would be the second batsman in my list. He has hit 33 sixes, his strike-rate is more than 160. Didn’t do much last season but this time things are quite different.
Heinrich Klaasen also included in Sehwag’s Pandavas
The name of Yashasvi Jaiswal, who scored 625 runs in 14 matches, is also included in Sehwag’s list. After this, Sehwag took the name of Suryakumar Yadav and said, ‘He was not in form in the beginning but later he started doing well, that’s why I am keeping him in this list.’ The last name in Sehwag’s list was Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Heinrich Klaasen. According to him, Klaasen has tremendous ability to hit spin and fast bowlers.
