3 teams with the best anchors for IPL 2024

These days, the role of an anchor is not very much in a T20 Team. Yet, it is important to have some players capable of doing that. A batter capable of being a good anchor helps a batting line-up when it is in trouble. Also, during a chase, the presence of an anchor allows the others to express themselves freely. If not two, at least one player who specialises in such a role must be available in the playing XI. On that note, here, we take a look at three teams with the best anchors for IPL 2024.

1) Royal Challengers Bangalore

Virat Kohli is one of the best anchors that the game has seen. He has definitely changed his game to suit the needs of the modern era but yet, Virat can always anchor an innings.

Faf du Plessis is also a wonderful accumulator of runs. Last season, he also improved with his strike rate. Now, he has got that attacking game and that has made him more dangerous.


2) Gujarat Titans

Gujarat Titans is one of the teams with the best anchors for IPL 2024. In Shubman Gill, GT has a top-class anchor. However, Gill is also capable of playing the attacking game, which he did in IPL 2023.

Kane Williamson got injured last season. However, he will play in IPL 2024. He could play an important role at No.3 as the focal point of the batting attack.

3) Lucknow Super Giants

KL Rahul did this job well in the past. However, he received criticism when the team did not do well. If he continues to play as an opener, he might have a similar role. That said, as per reports, he would operate in the middle order in IPL 2024.


Devdutt Padikkal, Quinton de Kock and Deepak Hooda could all play the role of an anchor. Hence, LSG has sufficient resources in this regard.
