Indian Premier League (IPL) has emerged as a great platform for youngsters to showcase their talent and ability to handle pressure and come on top may what the situation be. The exploits have seen some unfamiliar names make it to national squads just on the back of a good show in the tournament and that has made an IPL contract an essential for all aspiring cricketers. U19 players too want to make it big. The seniors team is the ultimate goal for all of them. Here are six India U19 players to watch out for in IPL 2016.
1. Sarfaraz Khan (RCB):
The dashing youngster already made a mark in the previous edition of the IPL as a dangerous lower order batsman. The 18-year old was a part of the RCB squad, where he impressed one and all with his fearless batting. Not many would have expected a 17-year-old to face international bowlers but Sarfaraz not only faced those bowlers but also played them with relative ease and with sublime flair in the 2015 edition. Sarfaraz was just a 4th std student when the IPL kicked off in 2008 but now he is playing alongside the likes of AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli. He sure must be cherishing and relishing every second of the IPL.
