The Indian Premier League is known for the surprise packages it brings to the fore every season. While the international stars are always expected to take the limelight, the tournament brings up the unheralded players to the biggest stage and gives them a chance to shine and make a name for themselves. The 9th edition of the IPL wasn’t different either. Here are the top 10 surprise packages of IPL 2016:

The Royal Challengers Bangalore tried experimenting by leaving out Chris Gayle. They fielded KL Rahul in the team and the player responded well enough. Such was his impact that he wasn’t dropped from the side in the matches that followed. Though his keeping wasn’t up to the standards expected, the kind of batting he displayed was phenomenal. He often stole the show by being the aggressor with Virat Kohli at the other end. Rahul amassed 397 runs in 14 matches at an average of 44.11 with 4 half centuries to his name.
