One of the most prominent attributes of the Indian Premier league is the ability to introduce fresh talents to global audience.
No matter how well the youngsters do in domestic or age group cricket the confidence and experience they gain by rubbing shoulders with established international players expedites their growth at a crucial juncture in their careers
Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin , Jasprit Bumrah , Hardik Pandya and many more Indian Cricketers made their way to International cricket after excelling in the Indian Premier League.
The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League is being held in United Arab Emirates from September 19th to November 8, let’s take a look at five Indian uncapped youngsters who have the potential to steal the spotlight .
Yashasvi Jaiswal (Rajasthan Royals ₹2.4crs)
He was by the far most impressive batsman in India’s runners up finish at the U-19 world cup earlier this year. 400runs from 6 matches including a hundred and four half centuries he was the highest scorer.
Ravi Bishnoi (Kings X1 Punjab ₹2crs)
Bishnoi was the standout player for India at the U-19 world cup in South Africa this year .The leg spinner impressed one and all with this skills fiery attitude returning with 17 wickets in six games to be the highest wicket taker in the tournament . There is a good chance the youngster could play consistently in the upcoming Indian Premier League season considering that he is the most promising wrist spinner
Devdutt Padikkal (Royal Challengers Banglore ₹20lakh)
He may not be an U-19 star but in terms of domestic white ball cricket the 20 year old left handed opener was arguably the biggest name last season . playing for Karnataka he set the stage on fire with one outstanding performance .There is a good chance Padikkal will edge out Patel for the other spot since AB de Villiers. While he has smashed a half century for RCB in his debut match in Indian Premier League.
Next Comes …
Kamlesh Nagarkoti (Kolkata Knight Riders ₹3.2crs)
He hasn’t played a professional match since February 2018 which makes him an odd pick for list. However, he generated that kind of pace with relatively small frame for a fast bowler. He was bought for ₹3.2 cr by KKR in 2018 auction but hasn’t played a single game for 2 seasons due to health reasons. He will be hopeful that he can finally play in the Indian Premier league.
Last but not the least
Ruturaj Gaikwad (Chennai Super Kings ₹20 lakh)
He is a 23 years old right handed batsman who has been the highest run getter for India A games over the past 2 years with 843 runs in 15 innings. Gaikwad is known for his solid technique and attractive shots. The three times champions CSK have Gaikwad , Ambati Rayudu, Murali Vijay and Shane Watson are at the top order. All the indications from the camp are that they are banking on this young gun to fill the massive space for Suresh Raina .
I would like to conclude that this 2020 Indian Premier League would be a blast this season with new developments in the matches.
