In the past, teams like Chennai and KKR have been able to do well on the back of excellent Indian players providing the cartilage around the big-ticket players. Let’s take a look at the IPL squads this year which have reasonably good Indian players.

1) Mumbai Indians:

Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah form the core of the Mumbai Indians team

One of the most successful IPL teams, Mumbai Indians have an enviable Indian contingent that can compete on its own with any of the other teams. They are led well by a Mumbai lad, Rohit Sharma, India’s regular short-format opener and MI will hope he recovers perfectly from his thigh surgery after an injury.

MI also boast of death-overs specialist Jasprit Bumrah, who recently won India a T20I against England with a sensational last over. They have the Pandya brothers, Krunal and Hardik, both all-rounders, the former a spinner and the latter a pacer who also features in India colours. There is Harbhajan Singh, Karn Sharma and J Suchith, three different types of spinners.

To beef up the batting is Ambati Rayudu and Parthiv Patel, well-known names in Indian cricket circuit, having featured for the Indian team. Vinay Kumar, who has bowled the new ball for India in the past is also present in the mix.

2) Delhi Daredevils:

Delhi is stocked with young Indian talent like Rishabh Pant

We will be watching Delhi Daredevils very closely this year with their promising crop of Indian players. There is Shreyas Iyer, who has been knocking on the doors for selection and the young wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant, who has already debuted for India in T20Is.

one of India’s wiliest fast bowlers in their history, Delhi also have leg-spinner Amit Mishra, wicket-keeper and captain of Mumbai Ranji team, Aditya Tare and left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem. India’s young Test triple-centurion, Karun Nair, and their best fast bowler currently, Mohammad Shami are also part of the Delhi side.  Sanju Samson and Jayant Yadav also feature in the side making it a formidable Indian unit.

3) Royal Challengers Bangalore:

RCB will have a lot of expectations from the Virat kohli this season

A team that features Virat Kohli, the best batsman on the planet across all formats, will make it to this list on his form alone. But, RCB is more than just King Kohli. They also have the stylish Karnataka batsman and Indian Test opener Lokesh Rahul, who came into his own last year under Kohli’s wing.

RCB has leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who delivered India’s best T20 spell recently, against England with a six-wicket haul. Throw in another recent success story, Kedar Jadhav and the young, swashbuckling batsman, Sarfaraz Khan, youngest player to play in the IPL when he made his debut, and RCB has an Indian contingent that can win matches on its own.

4)  Sunrisers Hyderabad:

Can Yuvraj Singh make a difference this time around for Hyderabad?

On the back of Yuvraj Singh’s grand international comeback, Sunrisers just about overtakes Kolkata Knight Riders to make it to this list. Only just (so KKR fans, we mean no disrespect). Sunrisers have two bowlers from the Indian side, the measly Bhuvneshwar Kumar and the veteran trickster, Ashish Nehra.

Naman Ojha will keep wickets for them. But it is Yuvraj Singh, who will bring plenty of spine to the middle order, not to mention Shikhar Dhawan who opens the innings. In terms of money spent on players, SRH are second from the bottom, their Rs. 53.75 crore rupees only more than KXIP’s Rs. 52.1 crores.

With left-arm spinner Bipul Sharma (who has an economy of 6.38 in all T20 cricket), left-arm medium pacer Barinder Sran (who has played 6 T20Is for India) and Deepak Hooda, middle-order bat and off-break bowler, Sunrisers have a versatile and effective Indian contingent that can efficiently get the job done.
