One more edition of IPL has come to an end with some exciting knocks that fascinated spectators across the board. The defending champions Mumbai Indians defeated Delhi Capitals and lifted their 5th IPL trophy. With the end of the tournament, several cricket analysts are coming up with opinions about the players and the teams.
The former Australian pacer, Brett Lee firmly watched the entire tournament as he was one of the experts for the official broadcasters.
The IPL is a stage where many uncapped players get an opportunity to prove their mettle with the greats of the game. The players get recognition for their talent and class in the cricket fraternity.
The 13th year of the league was no different, as many uncapped players made a difference with their exceptional performance. While talking with Star Sports, Lee gave his views on the two Indian youngsters who impressed him the most with their performances in the IPL 2020.
Brett Lee spoke profoundly of Royal Challengers Bangalore opening batsman Devdutt Padikkal, who made his debut in the IPL this year. He also praised Rajasthan Royals’ Rahul Tewatia for his brilliant batting.
Lee appreciated the runners-up Delhi Capitals for playing some fearless cricket and emphasized how hard it was to conduct the tournament in the absence of the fans.
Devdutt Padikkal became the Emerging Player of IPL 2020
The RCB batsman Devdutt Padikkal lived up to the hype around him and impressed the entire cricket fraternity. The left-hander became the Emerging Player of IPL 2020.
He finished as the highest run-getter for RCB aggregating 473 runs in 15 games at 31.53 with five half-centuries. The 20-year-old will be a vital cog in the upcoming years for RCB.
RR’s allrounder Rahul Tewatia, on the other hand, was a revelation for the franchise. Rahul’s volatile ability with the bat won the Royals two games they seem to lose, against the KXIP and SRH.
Tewatia shocked the audience with his excellent batting and steady bowling skills. He scored 255 runs in 14 matches and picked up ten wickets in the entire tournament. It is a striking return for a player who was struggling to make an impression in previous IPL seasons.
