The 15th season of the Indian T20 League will start on March 26 and it will provide an opportunity for the lesser known players to shine. This is a common phenomenon in the cash rich since its inception in 2008. Players such as Shikhar Dhawan, Manoj Tiwary, Venkatesh Iyer, Avesh Khan, etc. went to play for India after shining in the ITL. Last month, quite a few uncapped Indian and overseas players were bought in the two-day mega auction.
In this listicle, we will discuss the five uncapped players to watch in the upcoming season.
1. Sarfaraz Khan
The Mumbai-born player has played for Bangalore and Punjab since making his debut in 2015. He first played for Bangalore till 2017. In 2019, he was signed by Punjab and played for the team till last season. However, the right-hander hasn’t got enough opportunities in the league after 2015.
In his debut season, he played 13 games and scored 111 runs at the strike-rate of 156.33 and averaging 27.25 batting in the lower middle-order. Since then, he has played in 27 games in the last few seasons. This year, he has been bought by Delhi and would like to resurrect his ITL career. The 24-year-old averages 66.50 in first-class cricket and is currently playing in the Ranji Trophy.
