Dream 11 uses a simple and effective way to measure a player’s performance in a game. A few set of points are assigned to a particular achievement on the field. As the cricketer goes on accumulating Dream 11 points on the field, an outsider can easily measure his impact on the proceedings. In this article, we take a look at five all-rounders who could score the most number of Dream 11 points in IPL 2021.
There is a reason why we have considered only all-rounders for this proposition. Only these category of players can contribute equally to both departments of the game, and hence, they stand the chance to win the maximum Dream 11 points in IPL. Here are five of them who could top the charts this season.
1. Hardik Pandya
Hardik Pandya could not bowl last season due to an injury. However, as this season progresses, we could see the Mumbai Indians player roll his arm over. He has got subtle variations up his sleeve and that could result in plenty of wickets on Indian pitches.
Talking about his batting, Hardik has been in scintillating hitting form in recent months. He has a clear-cut role at MI, and that is to take on the bowling when he is on the crease. If he executes it, he can earn Dream 11 points in a cluster.
2. Andre Russell
Andre Russell is an impact player at Kolkata Knight Riders. While his batting exploits are well-known, the West Indian is steadily starting to make an impact with the ball.
In IPL 2020, Russell struggled to exhibit his big-hitting skills. However, it is not long before he finds his mojo. He could as well return to his best on the Indian pitches. With the death-bowling of his also getting improved, he is in line to earn a lot of Dream 11 points in IPL 2021.
3. Ravindra Jadeja
Ravindra Jadeja is India’s first-choice all-rounder across formats. While he is majorly known as a bowling all-rounder, he has vastly improved his batting skills in the last two years.
At CSK this season, Jaddu will be used higher up the batting order. His ability to construct the big hits will be utilized by MSD and co. Of course, he will also lead the spin attack for the franchise. Not to mention, the Saurashtra cricketer is one of the best fielders in the tournament. All of this makes him a contender to win a lot of Dream 11 points this year.
4. Sam Curran
Sam Curran will be preferred over Dwayne Bravo by CSK in IPL 2021. While Curran’s own form is one reason, Bravo’s inconsistency is the other. This makes the Englishman one of the contenders to win the maximum Dream 11 points.
Curran will mostly operate as a floater in the batting department. With the ball, his task will majorly involve bowling at the death. Both these tasks, if done well, can yield plenty of Dream 11 points.
5. Marcus Stoinis
Marcus Stoinis was a revelation in IPL 2020. Despite playing in the lower middle-order, a slot that’s unsuitable to his game, the Aussie impressed with some good performances. When asked, he also turned up with a few impressive shows with the ball.
This season, as well, Stoinis has a good chance to impress. He will be the team’s designated sixth bowler, and in the absence of Shreyas Iyer, the Aussie could bat a little higher. Hence, he could win quite a lot of Dream 11 points in IPL 2021.
