The teams have started their training camps well in advance to strategize and plan for the all-important Indian premier league which is going to kick start from 29th of March.
One of the critical strategy that the team management and the captains have to make is regarding their 4 overseas slots. The IPL is built in such a way that the overseas players are the ones who will give those impact performances more often than not. So electing 4 overseas options in the playing XI will play a huge role in the team's success.
Here we take a look at 4 overseas players who should be starting for each franchise
One of the very few teams who can blindly play any overseas player in their squad irrespective of the conditions and the opponents. Such is the class and depth of the side. With all of their first choice foreigners available for selection except for Trent Boult who will be playing against the Aussies in a T20I series at the start of the IPL, they will go with these 4 players
1. Quinton de Kock
2. Keiron Pollard
3. Nathan Coulter-Nile
4. Lasith Malinga
There is also a chance that they could replace Nathan-Coulter-Nile with Mitchell Mcclenaghan who has been a loyal customer to the Mumbai Indians since a very long time.
The dad's army as fondly called by the fans is one team who won’t be bothered by the international fixtures for the teams around the world as they have players who are absolutely free from commitments.
On a hindsight, Chennai Super Kings will be the least worried team even if India plays a series with some other nation during IPL as they have their core players who are either retired or out of the selector's radar to get into the Indian team.
These are the 4 overseas players that MS Dhoni will start with
1. Shane Watson
2. Dwayne Bravo
3. Lungi Ngidi
4. Imran Tahir
