Well my choice will come shocking to many, but I think currently Kolkata Knight Riders have the best middle order in IPL 2020

Well let us look at their probable XI:- Sunil Narine, Shubhman Gill, Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Rahul Tripathi, Pat Cummins, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, Nagarkoti

So just look at their middle order

Eoin Morgan

He is a dynamite. In T20, he has a decent average of around 30 that too with a strike rate of 130+. He is not only a solid, inning-stabiliser batsmen but he has from the past couple of months shown, that he can hit hard at will and is simply an asset for any team he is in.

Dinesh Karthik

It is unfortunate that India isn’t even considering him for the T20 world cup, someone who has an average of 33 in T20 that too with a strike rate of 144. He can be a game changer and is a strong player for any middle order.

Nitish Rana

He is an underrated player for sure. Last year, he showed how much vital he is for KKR. Sound technique, precise timing and versatility and he is capable of handling pressure situations very well. Cherry on the cake is his wicket-taking bowling comes in handy. Truly gem of a player

Andre Russell

This guy needs no introduction. He is simply brilliant and lead his team in the previous IPL on all fronts like a maestro. He is the core and the backbone of the team and is the X Factor capable of deciding the results of a match on his own efforts.

Rahul Tripathi

Decent average of 26 and strike rate of 130, he has massive potential and with RR and Supergiant, he has shown he can be the x factor for any team. He handles pressure very well and has a technical understanding of the game and can hit hard. Still has much to show but he can be a game changer for sure

Close competitors to KKR middle order includes

DC:- Their middle order includes Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmeyer, Marcus Stoinis
MI:- Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Nathan Coulter Nile

In my opinion the best middle order is from MUMBAI INDIANS because of the following reasons :

The coordination between the players is so high because they have been playing together for more than a year as far as there is no change in the middle order of the team
The experience of the players playing T20’s are so large as every player is an experienced T20 specialists
The combination between Pollard and Hardik Pandya is ‘DEADLY’ as it has the power to punch any opponent to the fences.
Krunal and Hardik combination is very good as two solid Indian finishers are very compromising and does the job perfectly for the team in whatever situation.
The ability to turn the game around in just a few balls is one of the unique things Mumbai Indians can demand at any time as it is bcause of HARDIK-POLLARD AND KRUNAL.
The addition of Coulter Nile is an additional strength to the team this year as they found a backup for a middle order batsman and an added bowler.
So definetly Mumbai Indians have the solid middleorder.

I didn’t mention any others because most of them are new players and coordination between them is too low but the MI players have shown in the past what they are made of and have shown fantastic results with it.
