IPL 2023 Top Performers and Their Current Teams in 2024 Edition

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 was indeed a thrilling season filled with exceptional performances from the best players of all 10 franchises of the tournament.

With the 2024 auction seeing some big money transfers, some of the 2023 edition’s top performers are now part of new teams. Some are still part of the same franchise and are playing with new teammates. 

As we build up to the next IPL season, let's relive their performance in the recent IPL season, and how likely they’ll perform in a 2024 IPL cricket match if they’re in a new team or will be playing alongside certain players.

Batting Maestros

Gujarat Titans opener Shubman Gill dominated the run charts in 2023, compiling a mammoth 890 runs from 16 matches at a stunning average of 59.33. He smashed three centuries, demonstrating his world-class batting technique and ability to play impactful innings. 

Gill remains captain of the Gujarat franchise, and we can say that his consistency and leadership will be vital in their title defense.

Faf du Plessis, captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore, delivered a masterclass in aggressive batting. With 730 runs, including eight fifties, he provided dynamism and stability at the top of the order. 

Du Plessis continues to lead Bangalore's charge as they search for their maiden IPL crown. With attacking batters like Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell around him, Faf's anchoring role will be crucial and will mostly boost the team’s performance in the upcoming season.

A revelation of the 2023 season was Chennai Super Kings opener Devon Conway. The New Zealander provided a calming presence at the top, compiling 672 runs at an average of 48. 

Conway will likely resume his opening duties with CSK alongside Ruturaj Gaikwad. We’re sure that Chennai will bank on this pairing to get them off to fast starts.

Young Sunrisers Hyderabad batter Vivrant Sharma enjoyed a stellar breakthrough campaign in 2023 despite limited opportunities. 

However, he remains unsold after the recent IPL auction despite only having a 20 lakh base price. The likely reason for this is that he mostly got the bench last year. He only made his batting debut during SRH’s last match of the season but was still able to be one of the top scorers with his 69 batting average.

Bowling Wizards

In the bowling department, Gujarat Titans medium-pacer Mohit Sharma enjoyed a prolific 2023 tournament. With 27 wickets, including India's first T20 hat-trick, Mohit was a constant wicket-taking threat. 

His miserly economy rate of just 6.37 proved his ability to restrict scoring. Mohit and premier quick Mohammed Shami, who took 28 wickets, formed a lethal new-ball pairing. 

Leg spin wizard Rashid Khan took 27 scalps at a staggeringly low economy of 5.98. Rashid lived up to his billing as T20's premier tweaker. With mystery variations and unerring accuracy, the Afghan spinner is surely one of the players to watch out for in Gujarat Titans.

For Lucknow Super Giants, English speedster Mark Wood lit up the 2023 event with searing spells. Using raw pace and intimidating bouncers, Wood snapped up 20 wickets at an average of just 11.8. Wood spearheading their bowling attack makes them serious contenders.

What Will the Upcoming IPL Look Like With These Cricketers?

Teams like Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings mostly have their players retained. However, there are still some significant transfers that shook up the IPL landscape.

Explosive Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh was the most expensive buy of the 2024 auction at 16 crores to Delhi Capitals. With Marsh in the lineup alongside skipper Rishabh Pant, the Capitals possess big-hitting prowess and balance. 

Emerging South African batting sensation Tristan Stubbs earned his big break via a trade to Delhi from Mumbai Indians for 50 lakhs. The hard-hitting middle-order ace now lines up alongside stalwarts like Marsh, Pant, and Prithvi Shaw. 

Delhi Capitals could be a dark horse. If their star-studded batting unit fires consistently, with Marsh adding firepower, the Capitals could be looking at their maiden crown.

Young Indian talents like Shubman Gill, Virant Sharma, and Akash Madhwal showed enormous potential last time. After enjoying breakout seasons, putting together consistent back-to-back performances will be their main challenge.

Conclusion

We’re sure that 2023 IPL’s top performers will bring in an interesting play in the upcoming season. The 17th edition of the IPL is set to run its course from March 29 to May 26, 2024.  You can catch every match live on digital streaming platforms including Hotstar or cable TV sports giant Star Sports.
