Just a few days old, the Indian Premier League 2017 has already thrown a lot of surprises at us. We look at the best performers in the first week of the IPL.
We have seen some entertaining and exceptional batting and bowling performances over the past week. There have been some cricketers who were expected to perform well, but failed to do so. On the other hand, we have seen some surprise performances.Some star players were not up to the mark whereas some players have excelled with least expectations.
We present you the best XI for the first week :
1. Gautam Gambhir (Kolkata Knight Riders)
The KKR captain has startedAexcellent with the bat this season .The perfect combination of excellence and aggression.AHe has the most number of 50 scores in the IPL with David Warner. Last night’s knock against Punjab notched up another 50 and took the lead in the Purple Cap race.
2. David Warner (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
David Warner has always been the star performer for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. He led from the front to lead them to the cup in IPL 2016. He has begun in great fashion this season too with two wins in their opening two matches. His unbeaten 76 run knock against Gujarat Lions puts him in our team of the week.
