When you think of the top bowlers in IPL 2020, you will not always think of Varun Chakraborty. Mystery ‘bowler of Kolkata Knight Riders, who can send down the observed test of off-spin, leg-spin and combination, though things have been too thick for his franchise, and KKR would hope he could be an option Handle the potential explosive Rishabh Pant in the Delhi capitals when the two teams meet in Sharjah on Saturday. The lack of size of Sharjah’s ground has made this face slightly skewed in Pant’s favor, but you never know when the mystery bowler is in action.
Chakraborty has done well for KKR so far. He played only one match in the 2019 edition, but has already doubled this year, with three wickets and an economy of 6.25. His total figures are four wickets in three matches at an economy of 7.72.
But it seems that he has the form and he already has some important wickets. The bowlers who dismissed David Warner, Rahul Teotia and Jofra Archer will not be taken lightly.
Pant has the pennant to play some great shots and get out for some classic miscarriage. It has almost become a trademark for him. He has scored 96 runs in three matches of IPL 2020 with a moderate strike rate of 118.51.
This is far from his IPL career strike rate of 159.58, which has come to a total of 1832 runs after 57 matches.
Therefore, Pant’s slightly creepy look is definitely a chime in his armor and Chakraborty will be interested like all bowlers. At the same time, the wicketkeepers from Delhi and India would love to take their A game to the table, which would have a great face.
