The U19 sensation, Kamlesh Nagarkoti is trending in the social media with his amazing performance. The 18-year-old raised everyone’s eyebrows with his pace. At such a tender age, Kamlesh is already clocking up to the 145 Kmph mark. He is currently in New Zealand playing the Under 19 World Cup.

The Rajasthan lad loads very well into his bowling action and bends his back hard. His bowling action is very clean and is something similar to that of Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The good run-up to the crease and clean action enables him to generate the extra pace which has awed everyone. He also swings the balls away slightly which is a reason for concern for many batsmen.

The latest entrant in the list of people impressed with Nagarkoti is the IPL franchise, Rajasthan Royals. The Royals took it to their social media platform, Instagram to express their happiness. Rajasthan Royals were suspended earlier in 2014. A two-year ban was imposed on the IPL franchise. Having served the ban, the Royals will be making a comeback to the IPL this year.

Rajasthan Royals has been a team that always backs up young talent. Their team was not star-studded like many other franchises. They picked budding cricketers and backed them to perform well. They are also the first ever team to lift the IPL trophy. However, after their triumph in the first season, they weren’t to get hold of the trophy again.

Making their comeback, the franchise chose only to retain Steve Smith from the available players. They will be looking to build a strong side this year in the auction. In all likelihood, Smith will be leading the team in 2018. Smith took the former IPL team, Rising Pune Supergiant into the finals last year. They ended the runners-up in the season.

The Royals in their Instagram handle termed the pace of young pacer Nagarkoti as insane. This post by the franchise has created many speculations that they will go hard at him in the auction. The others team will also keep a close eye on Nagarkoti. He might end up being a millionaire after the auction.
