The world’s biggest cricketing extravaganza is about to commence on May 30th. The participating nations have already selected their top 15 that will be a part of the squad. While some of them left the IPL mid-way to join their team’s practice sessions. Some stayed with their franchise until the final ball of the 2019 season of this incredible league was bowled.
Now that the Indian T20 tournament is in the books, the teams are focusing on bringing their best players to form. Performers form is the make or break state for any team. When the stakes are as high as being called a member of the World Champion team the team members will perform to perfection.
There was a time when Sachin Tendulkar, Kumar Sangakkara, Glenn McGrath, and AB de Villiers were considered pivotal in their team’s growth or vice-versa. This time around the players have changed, but the basic remains the same. With that in mind, let’s take a look at 5 top run scorers heading into this cricket tournament.
