3. Baba Aparajith – Chennai Super Kings
The story of Baba Aparajith has been way too unfortunate and saddening. The talented all-rounder from Tamil Nadu made his mark as a U19 World Cup winner in 2012 and was immediately picked up by the Chennai Super Kings. Although he got into a side he favoured to join, Aparajith barely got any game time to back his talent.
Aparajith has remained with the Chennai Super Kings for a major time while being a part of the interim franchise Rising Pune Supergiant. He struggled to break the deadlock and get a game in the last couple of seasons, but he is still 25 and has some good time left in him to contribute to Indian cricket.
His domestic performances in recent months too has been outrageous. Tamil Nadu enjoyed a sensational run in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and in both these tournaments, Aparajith was at the heart of things with the willow in hand. Given he gets a chance to play for CSK again, he definitely will be given more opportunities than before.
