3 teams that can make the best use of the powerplay in IPL 2024

Time and again, we have seen instances wherein a team’s performance in the powerplay has a huge impact on the outcome of the game. Hence, it becomes critical to make good use of the powerplay. While batters can use the field restrictions, bowlers can make good use of the advantages of a new ball. On that note, here, we take a look at the list of three teams that can make the best use of the powerplay in IPL 2024.

1) Mumbai Indians

With Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan at the top, there is a solid combination in place. Both these players have a point to prove and hence, we could see them do well in the powerplay.

Jasprit Bumrah is a beast at any phase of the game. With the new ball, he can trouble the best of batters. He would either have Dilshan Madushanka or Jason Behrendorff as his partner.


2) Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings is an under-rated team in this regard. Jonny Bairstow is usually merciless in the powerplay. Shikhar Dhawan usually takes time but these days, he is also employing an attacking intent in the powerplay.

Kagiso Rabada and Arshdeep Singh form a fine combination with the new ball. Vidwath Kaverappa and Sam Curran can also be used here.

3) Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals is one of the teams that can make the best use of the powerplay in IPL 2024. The best of the lot should be Rajasthan Royals. They have the best opening combination in the league. Both Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler are aggressive openers and would take on the bowlers right from the first ball.


Trent Boult often wreaks havoc on the opposition batters with the new ball. This time around, either Avesh Khan or Sandeep Sharma would partner him. Both these players have their own reliable credentials with the new ball. Hence, RR is on this list.
