This year’s Indian Premier League was undoubtedly the best season for the young guns of Indian cricket and world cricketers too. Every match becomes a platform for youngsters to come to rescue their team, and they take up the charge as well. Debutants from different countries who have promising bowling or batting talent remain one of the season’s highlights.

Gujarat Titans won the trophy in their maiden season with a comfortable win over Rajasthan Royals in the final. Mostly the youngsters came up with their competitive spirit to stand tall. Many of these youngsters have the capability to stick to their franchise and represent them in the next five years as well.

The IPL consists of half of its players being under 30 years of age, who perform consistently well throughout. A lot of the newly drafted players in whom the franchises have vastly invested are the ones under 25 years of age keeping the future in mind.

Here we bring you the youngest XI of IPL 2022

The opening batter who hails from Pune, Ruturaj Gaikwad, has been a consistent performer for his state team Maharasthra. He has been a great asset to his domestic team in all these years and Chennai bagged the right-handed batter in 2019 at his base price of Rs. 20 lakh and was retained before this season.

The 25-year-old batter has risen on enough occasions with his performance. Although this season was not his best one, he still has a lot to offer in the coming years for India and CSK. Gaikwad surely has shown that he can be a promising opener for India if he gets enough opportunities.

Gaikwad’s IPL 2022 stint wasn’t as good as the previous year. His highest this year was when he fell one run short of scoring a century against SRH. In the 14 matches he played this season for CSK, he scored 368 runs at an average of 26.29 and with a strike rate of 126.46.
