Virender Sehwag chooses his top five hitters in IPL 2023

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 ends on Sunday (May 28), with Chennai super kings (CSK). Gujarat Titans (GT) in the final of the tournament. The competition has provided great entertainment for cricket enthusiasts so far, with some sensational performances by several batters in the event. As many as twelve centuries were batted during the tournament, two of which came from uncovered Indian batters and three from GT star opener Shubman Gill.

After a vigorous league phase and playoff matches, India’s experienced player Virender Sehwag has now made his pick of five batters who impressed him the most in IPL 2023. However, Sehwag did not count the event’s leading run scorer, Gill and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) star Virat Kohli in his list. Notably, Virat hammered two consecutive tons in the current edition of the competition.

Speaking to Cricbuzz, Sehwag said his top five players from the IPL 2023 don’t have many openers. Called the world cup winning player Knight Riders of Kolkata (KKR) sensation Rinku Singh as his first pick and praised the left-handed hitter for his finishing skills. Now CSK all-rounder Shivam Dube And Rajasthan Royals (RR) batter Yashasvi Jaiswal took second and third spot in Sehwag’s list.

On the other hand, the 44-year-old former cricketer placed fourth and fifth in his list Mumbai Indians‘ (MI) player Suryakumar Yadav And Sunrises Hyderabad‘s (SRH) Henry Klaassen.

“Only 5 Pandavas. Pandav from cricket. My pick for five batters in the IPL. I didn’t pick many openers because they get a lot of chances. The first batter that comes to mind in Rinku Singh. I don’t think you would ask me the reason. Because it has never happened that a batter has won the team a game by hitting five consecutive sixes. Only Rinku Singh has done it. The second middle hitter is Shivam Dube. He has hit 33 sixes, his success rate is over 160. The past few seasons have not been special, but this year he came with a clear mindset that he has to start hitting sixes. Sehwag said.

“The third is a brilliant opener. I have to write down his name because his batting brilliance forced me to pick him up. Yashasvi Jaiswal. Then comes HEAVEN. I take the name of Suryakumar Yadav as he was out of shape. In international cricket, he got outs. Also in IPL he didn’t do well in the beginning but then he started to do well. Finally, I can choose anyone to throw because there are so many. But I choose another middle class hitter and his name is Heinrich Klaasen. The team he played for (SRH), he batted for them in the middle order, he made the most runs. His ability to hit against spin and pace is rarely seen in a foreign player. he added.

It is worth noting that three batters Sehwag chose in the form of Yashasvi, Surya and Klaasen have all scored a ton in the IPL 2023. Meanwhile, Rinku and Shivam excel as finishers for their respective teams.
