“A dark horse, which had never been thought of … rushed past the grand stand in sweeping triumph….”
This was the first time the dark horse term came into existence, in the book from 1831 – The Young Duke. There it literally meant a horse, but in today’s world it could be any person who would surge forward expected winners and become a winner himself/herself.

DREAM11 IPL2020 is a holy ground for all the dark horses of cricket. An opportunity to reveal their talent and win accolades. So let’s look into some more players of this season who are in the big chase.
Players already making a mark for themselves
Travelling from the KXIP team to CSK, Sam Curren made quite the impression in IPL2019. This overseas bowler already has a hat-trick to his name and now with the departure of Suresh Raina, Sam Curren could prove useful as a batsman too down the order.
This persistant wicketkeeper batsman is the first player to become the 10 highest run getter in the first season (2019). His astounding century alongside David Warner was a treat to watch. Bracketed by colossal players in the Sunrisers Hyderabad team, this player has the right potential to become the orange cap holder in DREAM11 IPL2020.
He is back from an injury break and back to break some records. The most expensive player to be sold at the IPL 2020 auctions, we have no doubt this man is gonna rise like a phoenix and be a contender for the purple cap in Dream11 IPL2020
This 16 matches old wicketkeeper batsman is full of promise. Narrowly missing out the orange cap in 2018, Rishabh Pant has 1 century and 11 half centuries to his credit. Being the 7th highest run scorer in IPL2019, is he eyeing for the orange cap this season? Why not says DREAM11 IPL2020!
The youngest captain of IPL, Shreyas Iyer is a very talented person who still hasn’t risen to the ranks of a winner. In 2019 he led Delhi to the play-offs stage, something that did not happen in the last 7 seasons. A sure head on the shoulders and a firm grip on the bat, he is a sure contender for the orange cap in DREAM11 IPL2020.
Well known Players who are treading water : soon to BE ON THE TOP?
A very interesting case. Making his entry as a specialist spinner for KKR, he did play a very important role in winning an IPL season for them. But soon was banned for his suspicious bowling action. He soon return with a corrected bowling action but could not do as much damage as before. Change in story – He is appointed as the opening batsman of KKR and gung-ho! We see terrific hitting with Sunil Narine hitting the second fastest 50! A new avatar! He definitely is the true dark horse in the true spirit of DREAM11 IPL2020!
A very capable spinner whose line and length are impeccable, Chahal has been very important to the RCB team. The last time he was in UAE, he did a good job. This time will he recreate that magic? He has it in him to claim the purple cap and it would be a treat to see him rise up to the occasion in the DREAM11 IPL2020.
