3 teams with the best hit-the-deck bowlers in IPL 2024

Hitting the deck is one of the key attributes for pacers now. Bowlers must be able to extract the best from the pitch. Most opposition batters will have a weakness against the hard length. Also, this type of ball is both the best attacking and defensive strategy. Hence, every team needs at least one hit-the-deck specialist on the side. While teams could use them as enforcers in the middle overs, such pacers could also be used in the death overs. Here, we take a look at the list of three teams with the best hit-the-deck bowlers in IPL 2024.

Note: We have rated this based on the likely bowlers each franchise might have in the playing XI.

1) Mumbai Indians (Jasprit Bumrah and Gerald Coetzee)

In Jasprit Bumrah, MI has arguably the best hit-the-deck pacer in the league. He himself puts Mumbai Indians very high on this list.


At the IPL 2024 Auctions, MI signed Gerald Coetzee. He is also a good hit-the-deck pacer. Romario Shepherd is also someone who could do the job for the franchise.

2) Sunrisers Hyderabad (Pat Cummins and Umran Malik)

SRH is one of the teams with the best hit-the-deck bowlers in IPL 2024. Pat Cummins is a top player when it comes to this area of the game. As per reports, IPL 2024 is set to allow two bouncers in an over. This will further help a player like Cummins.

Umran Malik could also strangle the batters with his shorter-length deliveries. If he can control his pace, he will further improve in this area.


3) Rajasthan Royals (Prasidh Krishna, Avesh Khan and Kuldeep Sen)

RR has a top Indian core in this regard. Prasidh Krishna, Avesh Khan and Kuldeep Sen all have this capability. Even Navdeep Saini on the bench could do the job well.

The focus for Shane Bond and Co. will be to get more variety of these pacers. If he can do that, RR will end well in IPL 2024.
