If you want to pick one x factor from the Mumbai Indians batting department, there will be no doubt that Suryakumar Yadav is their biggest x factor for IPL 2024. He would be the pick of the majority of cricket lovers without any competition because he is already considered the best batter in T20 at the moment. In the last season, he also played the role of game changer for MI, even though he was out of form in the first half of the season.

In the last few seasons, he has been the biggest x-factor for the Blue Army and has been winning matches for the team. So far in his IPL career, he has played 139 matches and bagged 3249 runs while averaging 31.85, but the cherry on top is the cracking strike rate of 143.32. So, another new season, but SKY will remain the game changer for the Mumbai Indians.

The big show will be the biggest x-factor for RCB in their middle order because on the team there is Glenn Maxwell; nobody could replace him as a game changer for that team. He has a huge role to play for RCB in IPL 2024 because of the form he has been in for the last few months, and he is the kind of player who can change the game in the middle overs very quickly.

Most of the teams make runs in powerplay and in death overs as well, but in middle overs, the team that dominates the spinners always finds the glory, and he has the ability to dominate the spinners and is possibly the best spin hitter in the world right now. Even in the last season, he was the game changer for RCB, where he scored 400 runs at a strike rate of 183.49.

Henrich Klaasen (Sunrisers Hyderabad)

The South African batter Henrich Klaasen is well known for his spin hitting, and he has been in trend in world cricket for the last few months. For the Orange Army, he will be the biggest x-factor for the upcoming IPL season. SRH have so many batters in their batting array, but he is the game changer who can turn the game in a few overs, and he showed his destructive approach in the last IPL season, where he scored 448 runs with an average of 49 and his strike rate was close to 180.

Shreyas Iyer (Kolkata Knight Riders)

The skipper of KKR himself is the biggest game changer and x-factor for the team because of the smooth hitting he has, which will be very beneficial for the team. He has been in his prime form right now, and he is also filled with confidence because of his performance in the 2023 World Cup.

Shreyas Iyer is even better with his pace; we saw that in the World Cup. So, for the upcoming season, Shreyas Iyer could be the game changer for the Kolkata Knight Riders.

CSK brought the Kiwi batter for 14 CR in the mini-auction, and for the yellow army, he is the biggest x-factor for the IPL 2024. He will be filling the slot of Ambati Rayudu in the middle order because he is a very able spin hitter and he has the ability to counter the fast bowlers in the death overs, and we all saw him doing the same stuff in the World Cup.

CSK will be hoping for explosive and long innings from the right-hander. MSD is returning with an injury, and considering Ravindra Jadeja’s dipping form, he will have a great role to play in the middle order for CSK as an x-factor for the franchise.

Liam Livingstone (Punjab Kings)

Even though the Punjab Kings are looking very weak in their batting because their skipper Shikhar Dhawan is passing his prime and other batters are very young and have less experience, Liam Livingstone will be the key player and their biggest x-factor. He also played that role very well in the last season; he is the kind of player the Punjab Kings will be relying on once again because he showcased that kind of form and impact.

Once again, for the IPL 2024, the English batter could be the game changer for the Punjab Kings.

Rishabh Pant (Delhi Capitals)

The man returning from injury is all set to represent the Delhi-based team in the upcoming season of the IPL, and he will be the biggest x-factor for the team. He has been a very important player for the team for the last few years because he changed the team map from a lower table to a fighting side.

Talking about his batting, the skipper is the most explosive batter in their array and has the ability to counter any bowling attack, along with his ability to take games away from the opposition in every situation. He has all the tricks to be a game changer for the team, so it will be interesting to see him replicating his brilliance once again.

The batter who bagged four centuries in the 2022 edition will once again be the x factor for the Rajasthan Royals. In that season, he almost pushed the team into the playoffs because of his excellent form, and in the last season, when he failed, RR struggled to finish in the playoffs. For the 2024 edition of IPL, Rajasthan’s performance will depend on the form of Jos Buttler because he is the biggest x-factor of the team.

Nicholas Pooran (Lucknow Super Giants)

When the franchise brought him in for a very big amount of 16 CR, no one raised a question, but the dynamic left-hander answered with his brilliant game play. He won many matches for the team while playing in their lower middle order. He is presently one of the best power hitters in the world right now, has the ability to win matches, and can-do majors with his bat. So, he is the game changer for the Lucknow Super Giants for the upcoming season.

Shubman Gill (Gujarat Titans)

The youngster, Shubman Gill will be the skipper of the Gujarat Titans for the upcoming season, and automatically he is the x factor for the team because he is one of the best batters of their team, and he is the skipper as well. Last season, he threatened Virat Kohli’s record of most runs, scoring almost on every ground. So, there is no doubt that Shubman Gill is the x factor of the Gujarat Titans.
