IPL 2024 Foreign Players Ranking for All 10 Teams

Rashid Khan, the star foreign player as we look at the final IPL 2024 overseas players ranking for all 10 teams.

10 Teams, 80 Overseas players! That’s what we are going to witness in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League, the IPL 2024. While the Indians dominate the Indian Premier League, there’s no denying that 40-50 of those 80 names will form the majority share of how successful the tournament is going to be.

Unlike IPL 2023, where we didn’t see a complete quota of 80 overseas players between the 10 teams, the IPL 2024 will see each team carrying 8 overseas players with them. The Auction also saw teams spending a fortune on overseas players, Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc, making them the two most expensive players in the history of the IPL. 

So, how about we evaluate the overseas players for each team cumulatively, and find out the ranking and rating of the overseas players of each team for IPL 2024? Again, to find out the ranking, each player is rated relatively against the benchmark player of each category, and each player is categorized as Opener, Middle-order batter, Finisher, All-rounder, Spinner, and Pacer.   

#10: Mumbai Indians – 8.135

Don’t be shocked straight up as we have the mighty Mumbai Indians occupying the number 10 position with a foreign players rating of 8.135. MI are actually pretty strong when it comes to their Indian players, but their overseas players don’t have the IPL experience to be different from the competition. While there is no doubt about the quality, IPL experience gives their competition a higher rating.

#9: Royal Challengers Bangalore – 8.375

Number 9 will again not make the fans happy as we have the RCB team with a foreign players rating of 8.375. RCB does have four solid overseas players in the form of Faf, Maxwell, Topley, and Green. But it is the other 4 overseas players that decrease their rating considerably. However, if we just consider their top 4 overseas players, they get a rating of 9.19. which is pretty good.

Faf du Plessis, Will Jacks, Cameron Green, Glenn Maxwell, Tom Curran, Alzarri Joseph, Lockie Ferguson & Reece Topley

#8: Kolkata Knight Riders – 8.490

Coming to number 8, we have the KKR team with a foreign players rating of 8.490. The addition of Starc does make KKR strong on the overseas contingent, but the likes of Gus Atkinson, Sherfane Rutherford, and even Roy and Gurbaz haven’t had the impact in IPL; thus separating them from the likes of Warner, Conway, or others.

#7: Delhi Capitals – 8.500

Coming to the number 7, we have the Delhi Capitals team with a foreign players rating of 8.5. Delhi does have quality top 4 overseas players in the form of David Warner, Anrich Nortje, Mitchell Marsh, and Harry Brook. But the likes of Lungi Ngidi, Jyhe Richardson, Shahi Hope, and Tristan Stubss are only good from the backup perspective with minimal IPL experience.

#6: Rajasthan Royals – 8.502

Coming to number 6, we have the RR team with a foreign players rating of 8.502; almost similar to Delhi. Similar to Delhi, RR’s top 4 overseas players, Jos Buttler, Trent Boult, Adam Zampa, and Shimron Hetmyer form a cumulative rating of 9.25. But if we add the backups, Rovman Powell, Donavan Ferreira, Nandre Burger, and Tom Kohler, the rating drops to 8.502. Except for Powell, who has been decent in IPL, the other three backups are yet to make their IPL debut.

#5: Lucknow Super Giants – 8.594

Number 5 sees the LSG team with an overseas player rating of  8.594. The LSG team has a solid top 4 overseas players in the form of Nicholas Pooran, Quinton de Kock, Mark Wood, and Marcus Stoinis as they form a cumulative rating of 9.13. Other than those four, Naveen Ul Haq and Kyle Mayers are good too with Willey and Ashton being decent backups.

#4: Gujarat Titans – 8.596

Coming to the number 4 position, we have Gujarat Titans with a foreign players rating of 8.596. Gujarat Titans have the best overseas player among all players in the form of Rashid Khan, who is the benchmark spinner with a rating of 10. While Rashid and Miller are two really good overseas players, the other 6 just don’t match up the quality of these two overseas players; thus reducing the overall rating.

David Miller, Kane Williamson, Matthew Wade (wk), Azmatullah Omerzai, Joshua Little, Noor Ahmad, Rashid Khan  & Spencer Johnson

#3: Sunrisers Hyderabad – 8.688

Coming to the number 3 position, we have the SRH team with a foreign players rating of 8.688. Needless to say, barring Farooqi, the other 7 overseas players can make it to the starting 11 of any team. Of the 8 players, Heinrich Klaasen is their best overseas player followed by Aiden Markram, Marco Jansen, and Glenn Phillips.

#2: Chennai Super Kings – 8.781

Coming to the number 2 position, we the CSK team with a foreign players rating of 8.781. Almost all CSK overseas players are quality players. But the two names, Rachin Ravindra and Daryl Mitchell are yet to have the impact in IPL as they have had at the International stage. That’s the reason their overall rating reduces marginally.

Devon Conway (wk), Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Moeen Ali, Rachin Ravindra, Maheesh Theekshana, Matheesha Pathirana & Mustafizur Rahman

#1: Punjab Kings – 8.833

Finally, at numero uno, we have the Punjab Kings with a foreign players rating of 8.833. Take any PBKS overseas player, and you can’t question on their credibility. Be it their top 4 overseas players, Liam Livingstone, Jonny Bairstow, Kagiso Rabada, and Sam Curran, or the other four backups, PBKS have their bases solidly covered.

So, that’s about the rating and ranking of the overseas players of each team for IPL 2024. Overall, PBKS, CSK, and SRH stand out when it comes to their overseas players, and the players of these teams will play a crucial role in their team in IPL 2024.
