ICC World T20's star performers will be return gifts for IPL 9

Ahead of IPL-9, mid-day takes a look at the heroes of the recently-concluded mega event

Virat Kohli

VIRAT KOHLI
273 runs, 136.50 average, 146.77 strike rate
VIRAT Kohli firmly established himself as the master of the chase in the recent World T20. He single-handedly steered India in to semi-final thanks to some brilliant batting. Wearing the skipper’s hat brings out the best in the Royal Challengers Bangalore giant.

CARLOS BRATHWAITE

CARLOS BRATHWAITE
57 runs, 203.57 strike rate;
4 wickets, 8.05 economy rate
HIS four sixes in the last over of the World T20 final that won West Indies the title has left the fans hungry for more. The Delhi Daredevils batsman will definitely be one of the biggest attractions of this edition of the franchise-based tourney.

SAMUEL BADREE

SAMUEL BADREE
9 wickets, 5.39 economy rate
WHENEVER West Indies skipper Darren Sammy tossed the ball to leg-spinner Badree, he rarely disappointed him. He may not turn the ball a great deal, but Badree’s accuracy is his biggest weapon, something that skipper Virat Kohli will definitelylook to exploit for Royal Challengers Bangalore.

JOS BUTTLER
191 runs, 159.16 strike rate
THE England wicketkeeper is one of the most destructive batsmen in the world at the moment. Buttler, who barely let down his skipper in the World T20 tourney, would like to continue from where he left as he gets ready to feature in his maiden IPL with Mumbai Indians.

MUSTAFIZUR
9 wickets, 9.55 average,
7.16 economy rate
Left-arm medium-pacer Rahman was the talking point of Bangladesh’s World T20 campaign. Rahman’s cutters  bamboozled most batsmen. That he claimed 5-22 against New Zealand, one of the most consistent teams in the World T20, shows how priceless he will be for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
