Rising Pune Supergiants were one of the two new teams who entered last season of the IPL. RPS Led by the iconic captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the team was in good hands ever since the beginning. But poor form and a surge of injuries led the Supergiants to a seventh place finish in the table. RPS won only 5 out of their 14 league games.
Ajinkya Rahane proved to be the most valuable player for the team, having scored 480 runs in 14 innings. The next in the line was Dhoni, who scored 284 runs in 12 innings.
Adam Zampa took 12 wickets in 5 Innings. Dhoni’s knock of 23 in the final over against Punjab in their last game of the season gave the fans something to cheer for However, despite a poor season, the team didn’t fail to entertain, as fans across the venues got to witness some quality cricket action.
The English all-rounder has recently had a great tour of India and RPS would hope that he repeats the same kind of performance for the team in the coming season. RPS Player list is mentioned below:
