Top overseas players who have performed extraordinary in the Indian T20 League 2021


A lot of overseas players are auctioned by the franchises in big numbers and they perform exceptionally well in the Indian T20 League. In the 2021 season we have seen many foreign players do wonders with their bat or ball. Plessis in Chennai, Rabada in Delhi, Narine in Kolkata and the list goes on. In this article we will talk about the top players that were fan favorite in this season.  
Faf du Plessis 

The Chennai openers, Plessis and Gaikwad made a good impression in the 2021 season of the league. Plessis was phenomenal with his bat throughout the league and is the runner up on the list of the most runs scored. Plessis' 633 runs in the season have got him the second place just below Gaikwad who succeeds him by just 2 runs. He played with an average of 45 and gave a good head start to his team in almost all the matches. With a strike rate of 138, he has one of the best in the season. He hit 6 fifties and 83 boundaries in total. He remained at one of the top positions on the fantasy points system.  
Glenn Maxwell 

Bangalore's middle-order batsman, who had created a fuss for the bowlers who went against him, showed some excellent batting. Maxwell did not fail to perform in almost all the matches, and you can say that he played a big role in taking Bangalore to the qualifiers. With an average of 42.75, Maxwell scored 513 runs in 14 innings. He hit 69 boundaries that comprised 48 fours and 21 sixes. He couldn't convert any of his innings into a century, but he hit 6 fifties. Maxwell was in tremendous form in this season. Bangalore might have won against Kolkata in the qualifiers, given Maxwell had shown the same class that he was consistently showing. But unfortunately, Narine got him on just 15 runs, and that ended Bangalore's campaign. 
Rashid Khan 

Hyderabad remained at the bottom of the points table throughout the league, because of the poor performance of the batting order. But Rashid did not compromise with his bowling skills and gave his hundred percent in all the matches. Even though Hyderabad could not convert matches into wins, Rashid's bowling was top-notch and his team as a unit couldn't contribute much to the game. He took 18 wickets in 14 innings and bowled at an economy of 6.69. Although this was not his best season but still, he performed better than other spinners in the league and has a better record than every other spinner except Chakravarthy.  
Sunil Narine 

Kolkata's biggest asset, Narine never fails to impress his fans and he did the same in the 2021 season too. He took 4 wickets against Bangalore and thrashed their batting order. He bowled at a very good economy and took big wickets for his team. He just took 16 wickets in this season but at times when his team needed the wickets most. 
There are other players too who had performed better. Hetmyer added depth to the Delhi's middle order and batted at a strike rate of 168, which is the most by any player. Rabada and Nortje too were exceptional in their bowling skills.
