MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) won the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 to clinch their 4th IPL championship. Chennai Super Kings defeated Eoin Morgan-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the summit clash by 27 runs at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on October 15.
There were several young and veteran Indians who shined in IPL 2021. Also, the Orange Cap and Purple Cap were won by Indian cricketers. However, as always the overseas players were not too far behind and they made a significant contribution to their teams. Some of the expensive overseas buys disappointed their teams. However, some overseas players delivered outstanding performance for the team. In this article, we will try to make the best overseas playing XI of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.
Best Overseas XI Of The IPL 2021
Jos Buttler (Wk)
The explosive England batter Jos Buttler played 7 IPL 2021 games for Rajasthan Royals (RR) and scored 254 runs at an average of 36.28 and strike rate of 153.01 including one marvellous hundred.
However, he opted out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 United Arab Emirates (UAE) leg and Rajasthan Royals (RR) bought Evin Lewis as his replacement. If Jos Buttler would have continued with RR in the second phase there is no doubt that he would have made a big impact.
