Top 4 Batsman Picks

1) Jason Roy – In first-class cricket, Roy has performed admirably, but limited overs cricket allows him to express himself freely and it is his greatest suit. Roy can hit the ball a long way with minimal foot movement, especially with his dazzling cross-bat swing, which he makes look so easy.

Top 4 Bowler Picks

Economy – 7.57

2) Rashid Khan – Rashid is a legbreak googly bowler with a skill set that suits him well in limited-overs cricket.

Matches – 282

Wickets – 389

Economy – 6.33

3) Mohammed Siraj – He rose as a seamer and with a remarkably swift bowling style. He has a deceptive run up that dazzles even the most experienced batsman and has bowled deadly spells for RCB in the past.
