3. Axar Patel
Axar Patel impressed the KXIP think-tank in the 2013 edition of the IPL where he scored 369 runs in seven matches. Soon he was bought by the Chandigarh-based franchise for a hefty amount the next season. Since then, he has been a regular in the squad and proved to be an asset to the side. Axar Patel has turned around the fortunes for his side on many occasions.
He holds an exceptional economy of 7.4 throughout all the seasons and has clinched as many as 58 wickets cumulatively, scoring 606 runs at strike-rate of almost 130, lower down the order. His cameos coming in at number 7 or 8, transformed the momentum of many a game this season. It is further unlikely that Virender Sehwag and Co. will let go of this consistent performer in the coming season of IPL.
