The Indian Premier League has provided a platform for uncapped players to showcase their ability in the shortest format of the game. Every season, quite a few uncapped players impress national selectors with their performance in the IPL. In IPL 2021, we witnessed some terrific performances from the uncapped players. That said, here is a list of 3 uncapped players who impressed in the IPL this year:

3. Chetan Sakariya (RR)

RR acquired Chetan Sakariya in the IPL 2021 auction at a price of 1.2 cr. The 22-year-old impressed in his maiden game in the IPL, scalping 3 wickets against PBKS in the 4th match of IPL 2021. In the IPL this season, Sakariya scalped 7 wickets in 7 matches for RR. The youngster also boasts a decent bowling economy of 8.22 in the IPL this season. Chetan Sakariya will be eager to keep bowling in a similar fashion for RR in the next season of the IPL.

2. Avesh Khan (DC)

DC’s Avesh Khan was one of the most promising bowlers in the IPL this year. The 24-year-old scalped an impressive 14 wickets in 8 matches for DC in IPL 2021. One major reason behind DC’s success in IPL 2021 was Avesh Khan’s brilliant bowling in IPL 2021. The right-arm fast bowler was Rishabh Pant’s go-to bowler this year. With an impressive outing in IPL 2021, Avesh Khan has put a good case for national selection in the T20 World Cup squad.

1. Harshal Patel (RCB)

RCB bowler Harshal Patel was arguably the most successful bowler in the IPL this season. In 7 matches for RCB this season, Harshal Patel scalped 17 wickets. Patel grabbed eyeballs after he registered his maiden 5 wicket haul in the IPL against MI in the 1st match of IPL 2021. Moreover, this was the 1st occasion on which a bowler scalped a 5 wicket haul against MI in the IPL. Even though Patel leaked runs at 9.17 runs per over this season, he consistently scalped wickets for RCB. If the IPL 2021 had not been suspended, Harshal Patel could have easily won the Purple cap.
