It is a fact that Indians outwardly express their love for cricket. Over the years now. IPL has made space in the lives of the ardent cricket fans as they are raring to watch the action unfold every season. The IPL has been instrumental in providing certain things to World cricket ever since its inception. Primarily it has played a vital role in redefining the T20 format.

The cutthroat competition of the league has made it sure that only the best survives. Every season, one is dazzled by the stories of cricketers chiming in the scenario and making their mark. The league is rightly termed as a platform that allows the budding talents to come forward and showcase their fiefdom and announce their arrival at the big stage.

Having said that, with the amount of competition, the ones who stand out with their skills and are able to soak in the pressure emerge triumphantly. There have been few names that have gone to impress everyone with their sheer flair. In this article let’s have a look at the few players who were bought in the 2018 IPL mega auction and have marched the drum of their talent ever since.

One name that has impressed the cricketing fraternity with his batting heroics in the IPL is that of KL Rahul. Punjab Kings though weren’t able to make it to the top four this year, but one of the major plus for them has been their skipper’s form with the willow. He has chipped in 626 runs from 13 matches at an average of 62.60 this year.

On most occasions, he has provided the team with flying starts by playing some fearless strokes and dominating the opposition. Not just this year around, Rahul smashed 659 runs from 14 matches at an average of 54.91 in IPL 2018. This included as many as six half-centuries. In IPL 2019, he hit a belligerent century and six fifties to score 593 runs at an average of 53.90.

Last year, he was the orange cap holder after having scored 670 runs in the tournament. His numbers in the league are staggering and the keeper-batter is undoubtedly IPL’s most valuable player now. Opening the innings, he makes most of the power play to take on the bowlers and capitalize his innings. This enabled him to dominate the batting charts of the tournament more since 2018 when Punjab had roped him in the mega auction for 11 crores.
