IPL 2020 got underway in the United Arab Emirates on 19th September as the Indian cricketers made their return to the field for the first time in six months. The tournament has proven to be quite competitive so far. In IPL 2020, the fans witnessed the first-ever double Super Over contest between the Mumbai Indians and the Kings XI Punjab.
Besides, there have been many other close games between the franchises. The Chennai Super Kings, who usually do well in the IPL, have struggled this year, and one of the reasons behind their failure has been the age of the players. CSK backed the experienced names over the young talent and that cost them a few matches this season.
Speaking of youngsters, many upcoming players have stolen the show in the tournament. With the T20 World Cup approaching, some youngsters might have potentially sealed their spots in the Indian squad for that mega event.
In the list, let’s take a look at the players, who have done well in the IPL:
1. Mohammed Siraj
The Royal Challengers Bangalore’s right-arm fast bowler Mohammed Siraj stunned the fans with his dream spell of 3/8 against the Kolkata Knight Riders. Siraj would have impressed the selectors with his dream spell. The former Sunrisers Hyderabad fast bowler became the first player to bowl two maiden overs in an IPL match.
Siraj has evolved a lot as a fast bowler. The Bangalore-based franchise backed him despite his failures, and eventually, the backing paid off in grand fashion. His line and length can trouble the batsmen in any format.
Comparing his IPL 2020 numbers with the previous seasons, one can clearly say that Siraj is ready to play for the Indian team now. His economy rate is 7.85 in four games so far. Siraj can be the perfect back-up pacer in the team.
