With the mid-season transfer window is on for the teams after the half-way mark of the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the matches are expected to go more down the wire. However, the next game of the ongoing season will be played between the two teams who are looking to get back to the winning ways after losing their respective last games, Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Rajasthan Royals (RR). While DD has only 2 wins under their belt and they need to win all the matches from now in order to qualify for the playoffs, RR has 3 wins to show but they also need to win 6 out of their remaining 7 games.
Despite the fact that both the teams are currently struggling in the ongoing season of IPL, one thing is for sure that they have a bunch of match-winners in their respective squads who can turn the games on its head. Let us have a look at such players from both the teams.
Amit Mishra (RR)
The leggie has been the legend of IPL. He stands at the top of the wicket-taking tally in the IPL as a leg-spinner. before this season began he had 134 wickets in the IPL. The unique record which he owns is that of taking three hat-tricks in the IPL. This season, however, was not a happy one for Amit Mishra, at least at the start. He was carted by KL Rahul in his first over and was subsequently dropped from the team. He returned when Delhi played their first match at home. he went wicketless in the match but there was an easy catch dropped on his bowling.
Mishra returned to wicket-taking as he snapped up two crucial wickets against Kolkata Knight Riders. He picked up 2/23 in his four overs to end a successful night. Then in the match where CSK scored above 210, he only went for 30 runs with one wicket.
