Washington Sundar IPL 2021 RCB Team Player: In the IPL 2018 auction, Washington Sundar was picked by Royal Challengers Bangalore, captained by Virat Kohli.
Washington Sundar is going to play in the fourth IPL season at RCB.
The last six months have been spectacular for Washington Sundar. He has made a test debut for India and left a mark of his performance. Washington Sundar is among those players who made headlines from under-19 cricket and then reached Team India for the IPL. They have been playing IPL for the last four years, except in 2020, they never get to play full matches. Sundar is identified as the bowler who dried the runs in the powerplay and the batsman who scored the runs fast in the lower order. He has played 36 matches and taken 24 wickets in four seasons so far. Also scored 186 runs. IPL 2017 and 2020 were the best for him. Then he took eight wickets.
Sundar started in the IPL as a replacement. He had participated in the auction but no one had bet on him. Then Ravichandran Ashwin of Rising Pune Supergiant got hurt and he was out. In such a situation, Pune took Sundar in his place. He played 11 matches this season and took eight wickets with an economy of 6.16. He took three wickets for 16 runs against Mumbai Indians in Qualifier 1. For this, he was elected man of the match. This is also his best performance from this tournament. Later in the final, he conceded just 13 runs in four overs. This is the best bowling in the IPL final.
RCB takes Sundar for Rs 3.2 crore
In the IPL 2018 auction, Sundar was picked by Royal Challengers Bangalore, captained by Virat Kohli. He got a bid of Rs 3.2 crore. He has been with this team since then. However, they did not get special opportunities in 2018 and 2019. In IPL 2018, he played only seven matches and took four wickets. At the same time, four wickets came in his share in three matches in IPL 2019. However, in IPL 2020, he played all 15 matches and took eight wickets. Throughout the season, he gave runs with an economy of 5.96. Sundar bowled amazingly for the team in the Powerplay.
Beautiful looking for runs
Sundar has not yet got a chance to make a mark in batting. They mostly used to land in lower order. In such a situation, in IPL 2021, they will have a chance to do wonders with the bat as well. In the last few months, he has done this while playing in the Test for India. If Sundar goes well in batting too, then captain Virat Kohli and RCB will have a big headache. Anyway, RCB’s team is struggling with the lack of finishers.
