IPL 2018: Who are the top uncapped bowlers?
The Indian Premier League has been known for unearthing the best of talents each season. The likes of Chahal, Bumrah, Jadeja and Ashwin were all finds of the IPL. This season as well, there have been some exceptional bowling performances by uncapped stars. Here is the list of top 5 uncapped bowling sensations of this season.
Chennai Super Kings' Deepak Chahar
Deepak has been one of the consistent performers for CSK this season. The 25-year-old has the ability to swing the ball at a good pace of about 140-143 kmph. With 6 wickets in 6 games so far, Deepak's stock is slowly rising. He bagged 8 wickets for 10 runs in the Ranji trophy in 2011, now will he go on to fulfil his potential?
Mumbai Indians' Krunal Pandya
Talk about a match-winner in T20s, then Krunal Pandya's name should be on top of that list. A part of the Mumbai Indians squad for the third consecutive season, the all-rounder has bagged 6 wickets in 6 matches so far. With Jadeja now fading away into oblivion, the older of the Pandya brothers could in the reckoning for a national call-up.
Kings XI Punjab's Ankit Rajpoot
Ankit has been in the IPL for a while now but hasn't really made his impact felt with the limited opportunities he got. This season, however, he rose to fame with his mind-blowing 5-wicket haul against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He finished with figures of 5/14. The 24-year-old has bagged 7 wickets in 3 matches and there is plenty more to come from this man.
Sunrisers Hyderabad's Siddarth Kaul
Siddarth has been the second-best uncapped bowler this season. Building on last year's performance, where he bagged 16 wickets in 10 matches, Kaul has 9 wickets in 7 matches this year. He is a master of the knuckle-ball and has several other variations in his arsenal. At 27, he is in the prime of his career, so let's see how far he can go.
Mumbai Indians' Mayank Markande
This young leg-spinner has set the IPL alight with his brilliant performances. In 6 matches, he has bagged 10 wickets and the 20-year-old is now one wicket shy of regaining the Purple Cap. Even seasoned international campaigners such as MS Dhoni have found it difficult to read Mayank Markande. Definitely the find of the season so far.
