Imran Tahir – It took many turns of his career for Imran Tahir to reach IPL but once he did, he was bound to become a star. His first season in the league was with Delhi Daredevils in 2014. The very next year he picked up 15 wickets in 10 matches to make a big mark. Two seasons later, he picked up a rich haul again, of 18 wickets to again show how dangerous he is.

But the 2019 season was the peak of his career as he scalped 26 wickets in 17 matches and left the batsmen flummoxed. His accuracy, when combined with a deadly googly, make him irresistible when he is on song.
However, his IPL career has followed an alternate rhythm with every good season followed by a lean one. Last season saw MS Dhoni not giving him much of an opportunity. His three matches yielded just 1 wicket. But if the trend of his IPL journey continues, Tahir is in for a big haul of wickets again in 2019.
