The Indian Premier League has been the toughest league in the cricketing world. Even after being compared to other leagues, none come close to the IPL. The level of cricket and the toughness required to be relevant in the IPL is just way too high.
This is the reason why the IPL has been so popular amongst the fans. Adding on, its unpredictability has been another factor that has helped to boost its popularity. This time around, the IPL has introduced the “Impact Player” rule, which is turning out to be a masterstroke.
As most of the fans might be aware of the rule, this does allow the captain to have an extra bowling/batting option during the latter half of the first innings or the second innings as a whole. Thus far, we have witnessed numerous instrumental performances from the Impact Players.

10. Ayush Badoni (30 runs off 24 balls) vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
The Indian Premier League is well known for providing the perfect opportunity for youngsters. It gives them the exposure that ordinary domestic tournaments are not able to provide. In almost all the teams, there is at least one player who has been able to grab the attention of the fans, and for Lucknow Super Giants, it is Ayush Badoni.
In the 15th game of the 2023 edition of the IPL, while batting first, RCB went on to score 212 runs in their 20 overs. In reply, LSG had a shaky start as their top order failed to attack during the initial stage of the chase.
However, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran, and Ayush Badoni went on to score vital runs during the chase. Badoni was introduced in the chase as an impact player, and he went on to score 30 runs from 24 balls. His efforts were crucial as Pooran needed proper support from the other end, which Badoni provided.
