Whenever it comes to T20 cricket, a match-finisher is the most important individual. A finisher is someone who can completely change the game with his bat by playing big shots and scoring quick runs while being under pressure. There are very few such players who can do that while coming down to bat in a situation where they are expected to turn things around.
Over the past few years, Indian Premier League has witnessed some of the best finishers from India and from across the globe. These players have made history and have helped their respective teams to win matches in some of the most critical situations. The online bookies keep the odds in favor of the teams who have good finishers in their team.
Top 3 finishers to watch out for in IPL 2023
In this article, we have compiled a list of three such finishers who will be making headlines in the upcoming season of IPL 2023.
1) David Miller
David Miller was a lost name before the IPL 2022 season. During the IPL 2022, while playing Gujarat Titans, Miller completely revived his game and helped the Titans to win the IPL trophy in their debut season. He scored 1053 runs in 42 innings at an average of 47.86 and a strike rate of 145.24.
Cricket pundits had very less expectations from Miller last year because he was witnessing a major dip in his career since 2016. Miller stunned everyone and gave a shocking reply to his critics.
2) Tim David
The Singapore-born cricketer, who represents Australia’s national side now, was in news in 2022 for all the right reasons. He made his debut for IPL 2022 with Mumbai Indians but the first half of the tournament was a complete failure for the player.
The franchise gave him some rest and during the last weeks of the tournament, Tim David made a brilliant comeback with his brilliant style of play. He scored 1410 runs in 66 innings at a mind-boggling strike rate of 168.45. Tim David will be used by Mumbai Indians to fulfil the void of Kieron Pollard in upcoming season of IPL.
3) Shimron Hetmyer
Shimron Hetmyer is one name which never fails to surprise the opposition. The West Indies left-handed batter is known for his brilliant stint with Delhi Capitals and is currently associated with Rajasthan Royals.
Overall in IPL, Hetmyer has scored 556 runs at an average of 40 and a strike rate of 160. He played a crucial role in the last year's season of IPL for Rajasthan Royals and helped the team to reach the finals. This year as well, Hetmyer will be in the spotlight for the Royals.
