This Year’s IPL Has Been All About These Youngsters Who’ll Surely Be The Future Of The Sport

Every year, IPL manages to bring out the best talents all across the globe who make their mark in the sport for years to come. We’ve seen multiple youngsters come out and give a stern competition to global stars. A desi youngster hitting a world class pace bowler for a six is always a great sight to watch.

Here are a few youngsters who’ve impressed us the most this season:

#1 Joffrey Archer – Rajashtan Royals

Every year, we have this one breakout performer who comes out of nowhere and manages to mesmerise the fans of the sport. Archer has been exception so far and it’s a surprise how he wasn’t scouted before.


#2 Shivam Mavi – Kolkata Knight Riders

The U19 star has impressed everyone with his sheer pace and willingness to hit the deck hard. He was one of the biggest stars in this year’s IPL before getting injured.

#3 Rishabh Pant – Delhi Daredevils

Rishabh Pant has been one of the two good things that seems to have gone Daredevil’s way this season. The hard-hitting batsmen has made the bowlers run for cover this season.

#4 Prithvi Shaw – Delhi Daredevils

Surely a talent who’s cut out to go the long distance, Shaw can up the scoring ante admirably. He’s done remarkably well as an opener for the Daredevils and has managed to impress the likes of Gautam Gambhir as well.

#5 Shubhman Gill – Kolkata Knight Riders

The Kolkata Knight Riders U19 star has already performed consistently well when he given an opportunity. Cool under pressure, Gill looks like a player suited for all the formats of the game.

#6 Mujeeb Zadran – Kings XI Punjab

Ashwin made a brave call by playing Mujeeb and young spinner has repaid this belief in him with fantastic performances one after the other.

#7 Shreyas Iyer – Delhi Daredevils

The new Delhi Daredevils captain has already had a breakout IPL season but he is once again performing well for his team this season. His innings against the KKR strengthens his position as the skipper of DD.

#8 Ishan Kishan – Mumbai Indians

A swashbuckling wicket-keeper batsman from the cricketing backwaters of Jharkhand: sound familiar? He single-handedly won MI a few initial matches before helping his side absolutely decimate Kolkata Knight Riders.
