Indian T20 League is a platform where talent meets recognition. However, grabbing those opportunities and performing well against world class players in not easy as well.  There are some low profile players in each team, who are least expected to win the games for their team. However, they are very capable to do so. Here are five players who can do well in the Indian T20 League despite low expectations.

Shivam Dube

Shivam Dube has blown hot and cold in a very short career so far. After joing Bangalore, he did deliver some good performances but wasn’t very consistent.  He also made his debut for India on back of some good performances, but once again lack of consistency knocked him out of the team. He will play for Chennai in the upcoming season under MS Dhoni. MS Dhoni is known to get the best out of players thus, Dubey could get a big push in his career.

Matthew Wade

Matthew Wade was a last-minute purchase for the Gujarat team in the ITL mega auction as they had no keeper in their squad till then. While this decision may have come in hurry, Gujarat can hugely benefit from him. He is a very flexible batter and can bat at any position. He can be an explosive opener and a critical finisher. On top of that, he is also very handy with gloves. Gujarat can make him their primary wicket-keeping option for the season.

Alzarri Joseph

Alzarri Joseph had a dream debut when he played for the Mumbai team in 2019. He registered the best ever figures in the history of the tournament and picked up 6 wickets by conceding just 12 runs in his spell. However, his form did not last much longer and he was dropped from the team. This season, Gujarat picked him and with experience of Mohammad Shami and Lockie Ferguson by his side, he can have a good season.

Dewald Brevis

South Africa’s star from the recent U-19 World Cup, Dewald Brevis was picked up by Mumbai this season. He had a fantastic run with the bat and many termed him AB 2.0 for his unorthodox playing style. Mumbai now has to find a good middle-order as they had to let go of some of their major players. Brevis can fit in well in that position. From what he displayed in the U-19 World Cup, if Brevis can keep the form, he can win some games for his team.

Washington Sundar

Washington Sundar has a great range as a player. He can bat at the top of the order, he can bat in the middle-order, he can be a finisher, and he can bowl as well. Sundar brings in a genuine all-rounder to the Hyderabad team this season. They no longer have the services of Rashid Khan, and he can fill in those shoes if he can be a better wicket-taker. It will be interesting to see how Hyderabad uses him in the batting order this season.
