Every IPL is an opportunity for young and unknown players from all across the country to showcase their talents at the biggest of stages. It’s a great platform for uncapped cricketers to prove their talents and also increase their chances of playing for the national team.
Over the years, the Indian T20 league has witnessed many young cricketers who have forced one and all to turn their attention towards them. Many of them have gone on to make it big for their country. As the IPL enters its 12th edition, there are some uncapped players who are creating a buzz.
Here are the 5 uncapped players to watch out for in IPL 2019
#5 Shivam Dube
An exciting talent from Mumbai, Shivam Dube fetched big money from Royal Challengers Bangalore this year. The 25-year-old all-rounder had a decent run with the bat and ball for Mumbai in the Ranji trophy. The Mumbai-born player has scored at an average of more than 50 and picked 28 wickets in the first-class career.
Dube is the kind of player who hits the ball cleanly. He did brilliantly in this year’s Ranji Trophy. The left-hander came into the picture, just before the auction as he smashed five sixes in an over off Pravin Tambe in a local Mumbai T20 tournament. The timing couldn’t have been better. He was one of the hot picks in the auction and RCB went on to spend INR 5 crores to rope him in. RCB has been lacking a player who could don the role of a finisher, they might just have found the right guy for the job.
