With the end of the second week of the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), it’s still difficult to guess which team is the clear favorite in this season. However, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) is once again leading the charts with three wins already under their belt. On the batting front, David Warner is still leading the table with 279 runs in 5 innings at a strike rate of 158, while on the bowling front, surprisingly, the fiery pacer, Kagiso Rabada is donning the purple cap as he has scalped 11 wickets and maintained an economy of 7.55 in first 6 games.
As an amalgamation of some of the best batting, bowling, and fielding efforts, let us try to make a combined XI from all the teams, considering the individual performances of the players.
