Indian Premier League (IPL) has served as the fairground for the young cricketers of India who mostly are a part of the domestic games. The upcoming 13th edition of the franchise-based league (IPL 2020) will once again be the centre of attraction for the uncapped players featuring this season.
IPL has kindled the domestic players and shaped them to be recognized as the world-class players for the national team. Players like Jasprit Bumrah (the splendid death bowler for India) and KL Rahul (currently one of the most consistent young batsmen) have emerged from the cash-rich league. In fact, Rahul has been upgraded to be the leader of the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the upcoming IPL 2020.
Nevertheless, the supposedly 60-day tournament will kick-off from the 29th of March. And while the schedule is yet to be released, the auctions and tradings held in around later months of 2019 had already set the pace for the IPL 2020. And with more of the young domestic players in the franchises, it will be more interesting to watch out for the uncapped players in this season of the premier event.
With the likes of Priyam Garg and Yashasvi Jaiswal having a splendid time in the U-19 Cricket World Cup, a lot will be expected from the domestic players.
The Uncapped Players who could play all the matches for their respective franchises in IPL 2020:
Yashasvi Jaiswal (Rajasthan Royals):
Coming in the limelight for his blistering double century in the List A cricket, Yashasvi Jaiswal is among the promising young talents of India U-19. Currently, the southpaw has played an important role in the victorious two big games in the ongoing U-19 Cricket World Cup.
He scored an unbeaten half-century against New Zealand while hitting another one against Australia in the first quarter-final of the event.
During the auctions of the IPL 2020 held in Kolkata, Jaiswal took the spotlight as he entered for the base price of INR 20 lakhs. There was bidding war held between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Mumbai Indians (MI) before KXIP and Rajasthan Royals joined in.
The 18-year-old youngster was finally sold off to the Royals for a whopping of 2.40 crores. And his current form in the limited-overs game will play as the icing on top of the cake for both the Royals and the cricketer.
