Any team needs the guidance of an able captain to succeed anywhere. The Indian Premier League‘s frenetic pace has led to the discovery of many able leaders, who could go on to lead their national side in the future. With the success of IPL, other services such as Dream 11 rose in popularity too.
Dream 11 allows the average viewer to make their fantasy teams and appoint their captains. They get points based on the performances of the players. Captains who score more get more points for the users. Today we will take a look at 5 captains who could get you the most Dream 11 points this season.
#5. Rohit Sharma
Rohit Sharma is one of the best batsmen of this generation. The veteran Indian cricketer has also been a tremendous captain for the Mumbai Indians. From scripting unlikely title wins to dominating the entire competition, Sharma has been present throughout the genesis of the Mumbai outfit from the underdogs to clear favourites.
Sharma has scored more than five thousand runs in the IPL and has been in sublime touch this season too. There is no doubt that appointing Rohit as your captain would be a sure-shot way of getting more points this season.
#4. Rishabh Pant
Rishabh Pant has been an absolute revelation since 2020. The amount of maturity shown by the young batsman in such a short period of time has been nothing but remarkable. From winning the Gabba for India in Australia to steadying a falling ship against England, Pant is firing on all cylinders at this point.
Playing his first IPL as a captain of the black horse franchise that is the Delhi Capitals, Pant showed flashes of brilliance against the Chennai Super Kings. DC dominated CSK and won comfortably.
Pant played a major part in the run chase, and is sure to be a great return on your investment should you choose to pick him as your captain.
#3. Sanju Samson
The very talented Sanju Samson was handed the reins of Rajasthan Royals after the inaugural champions released Steve Smith this year. Samson is an extremely talented batsman and can adapt to any situation very well. He has delivered whenever his services were needed by RR.
Samson hit a blistering ton recently against Punjab this year. He scored 119 runs in just 63 balls. While he could not win the match for his team, his brilliant knock brought the Rajasthan outfit very close to winning.
#2. Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli is arguably the greatest batsman of this generation. The Indian skipper is a once-in-a-lifetime talent, who has been scoring runs consistently, regardless of the format. In the IPL he captains the RCB franchise. He has been tremendous with the bat despite the shameful IPL record of his team. Kohli can be trusted to score runs no matter what the situation is.
Appointing him as a captain of your team could pay off very well for the users, as he has looked in fine form this season too.
#1. David Warner
Warner is an explosive batsman and plays for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL. He has scored 5311 runs at an average of more than 42. Warner has become a mainstay in the Sunrisers Hyderabad setup. There is no doubt that Warner could be a frontrunner to win the Orange Cap this season. His knock of 54 runs from 37 balls yesterday proved that he hasn’t lost a step and is looking to dominate.
Having someone the calibre of Warner as a captain isn’t the worst move you could do. A player like him could get you tons of points this season. Don’t miss out on him!
