The IPL 2020 is running now and has given people a medium to focus away from the gloominess of pandemic that has slid on us for the current year. The government bodies have not let audience on the ground in this year’s edition due to the pandemic. According to BARC, 20 crore people have watched the tournament opening match between the Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings.
We are close to the end of the second week of the tournament and have watched the details of the first week.
Here are the 5 young cricketers who caught our attention:
Ravi Bishnoi – Kings XI Punjab
Ravi Bishnoi was one of the stars of India’s U-19 World Cup team in South Africa, earlier this year. What has struck the most about him isn’t just his authority over the variations that he has. Moreover, the personality with which he bowls is striking.
In the game against RCB, he was called to bowl inside the powerplay and was taken to cleaners by AB de Villiers. However, how he returned to get 3 wickets was admirable. In two matches played up until now, Bishnoi has got 4 wickets at an economy rate of under 7 runs per over. With a coach like Anil Kumble, Bishnoi looks promising in IPL.
Rahul Chahar – Mumbai Indians
Despite the fact that he has not set the stands ablaze, Rahul Chahar has indicated a promise to the fans in the games he has played. Mumbai Indians is one IPL group, which is thin on spinning their assets and the early form of Chahar would be comforting for the franchisee. With 3 wickets at an economy of less than 8 for every over, Rahul Chahar guarantees a thrilling IPL in the upcoming matches.
Sanju Samson – Rajasthan Royals
At 25, Sanju has just played 150 T20 coordinates. Yet he hasn’t got enough opportunities when it comes to playing for India. The manner in which he crushed the CSK bowling attack at Sharjah was satisfying even to the most ardent purist of the game. If he plays like this in the future matches, not just RR will do well this season, however, it will be hard for the national selectors to disregard him more.
Sam Curran – Chennai Super Kings
Unfit Dwayne Bravo made way for Sam Curran in the CSK playing XI. And with his performances, it will be hard to leave him out of the team once Bravo is fit and prepared to play. Curran has got 5 wickets at an economy of less than 8 per over. He has likewise indicated that he can hit the ball hard scoring runs at a solid strike rate of 257.
Devdutt Padikkal – Royal Challengers Bangalore
Each cricket fan who followed India’s domestic competitions realized that Padikkal had the ability to score big runs in all formats of the game. However, the question was whether he could play maintaining his form against international quality bowlers in IPL. Fans could see that he replied it in style.
