IPL 2021: From RCB’s Tim David to CSK’s Imran Tahir, 5 biggest positives from CPL 2021
IPL 2021- Evin Lewis: The newly-signed Rajasthan Royals batsman emerged as the highest run-scorer in CPL 2021. He smashed 420 runs in 10 innings, including a century and 3 half-centuries. He will look to emulate his red-hot form in IPL 2021 Phase 2. His arrival is expected to fill the void created by Jos Buttler who pulled out of the tournament. His excellent show guided Saint Lucia Kings into the finals but a shoulder injury led to his early dismissal on the night of the finals.
