It’s the starting phase of yet another exciting edition of IPL. In less than 5 months from the completion of last season, IPL has returned back to its roots in India. Due to the current circumstances and Covid-19 spreading severely, the matches are being played under the well-designed bio-bubble.
While there’s no doubt in the fact that a lot has changed this time around in IPL, one thing remains similar; the star-studded lineups of the teams. Each team has players who can turn the game on its head which is also the beauty of an event like IPL, which is filled with thrill.
Amongst the known players, the youngsters keep on emerging every year in the IPL to make a name for themselves. IPL is a platform where players can write their own destiny and it is a stairway to the international circuit.
Players who might surprise in IPL 2021
1. Abdul Samad
You must have heard this name in the last season of IPL itself. Abdul Samad is a prodigy who has the potential to achieve great heights in IPL. Hailing from Jammu & Kashmir, former Indian cricketer Irfan Khan has lauded him to bits and we got a few signs of his talent in the 2020 edition as well.
One of the toughest jobs in limited-overs cricket, especially in T20s, is finishing. Abdul Samad has already shown the calibre of hitting it effortlessly. What makes it better is that he is just 19 years old. The best part is that he doesn’t shy away from hitting the best of the bowlers.
While he didn’t feature in all the games for SRH last year, we expect him to get the backing this season because of his superlative efforts as a finisher which is the need of the hour for the orange army. He is more than capable of taking the game away from the opposition at the back end of the innings and he gave a little glimpse of it in SRH’s opening match.
