The Indian Premier League (IPL) is the biggest platform where the youngsters get a chance to rub shoulders with the best in business. Also, throughout the 14 years of the high-octane T20 tournament, we have seen new talent emerge and break records for fun. One can’t forget Swapnil Asnodkar and Graeme Smith opening for the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the inaugural edition of the IPL in 2008.

Also, Ravindra Jadeja had made a mark for RR under the inspiring leadership of Shane Warne. Besides that, Jasprit Bumrah’s grand entry in 2013 IPL where he dismissed current Indian skipper Virat Kohli after getting hit for a few fours and a few other moments in the T20 league stand out.

During the past two years of the IPL, quite a few youngsters such as Devdutt Padikkal, Basil Thampi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, and Shivam Mavi have gone to make an impact for the respective franchises with bat and ball.

Ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction, here are a few youngsters who could fetch some big numbers

1. Venkatesh Iyer

‘Typical South Indian’ is how Venkatesh Iyer’s coaches at Madhya Pradesh described the latest Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) batting star. Iyer, as described by his coaches, likes to study his dismissals deeply and try to rectify his errors.

After waiting patiently during the first half of the IPL, Iyer was finally handed his debut cap against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). He didn’t disappoint the management as he scored a breezy unbeaten 41 and helped KKR chase a mediocre target of 90 odd runs with relative ease. There was audacity and authority in his stroke-play. Also, there was a touch of nonchalance in the way he timed the ball.

Later he scored 53 against a quality Mumbai Indians (MI) attack and announced to the world that he is here to stay. Iyer’s blistering knocks have already given KKR three wins. Needless to say, the sky is the limit for the studious youngster from Madhya Pradesh.
