Leading Uncapped Run Scorers In IPL 2020: This year’s IPL has not only been bizarre for countless reasons but it has been a massively inspiring one for youngsters. Instead of heroes of the format ruling the roost, new names have transcended themselves to the calling and have managed to bail out their respective outfits from several quagmires.
Like they say that IPL has always been a talent finder, this year’s campaign was a true manifestation of the same proverb. From being destructive batsmen to stunning bowlers, IPL 2020 had a lot to offer. Youngsters were the prime of the lot. This year’s fray also provided a couple of picks to the Indian national team for the upcoming Indian tour of Australia. Varun Chakravarthy and Shubman Gill were the latest addition to the squads that will be traveling down under.
We will look at five uncapped cricketers of IPL 2020 who have left an impressive mark throughout the tournament and have proven their worth with the bat, in short, the highest uncapped run-scorers of the tournament.
Devdutt Paddikal (RCB)
Devdutt Padikkal has been in subliminal form throughout the fray and the way this youngster has batted so far has undoubtedly underlined his brilliance. The towering southpaw has managed to score 417 runs from 12 games. He has been an instrumental contributor to the avenues of Royal Challengers Bangalore. If he continues scoring at this rate, he will shortly make it to the national team.
Suryakumar Yadav (Mumbai Indians)
Suryakumar Yadav has been an extremely reliable option for Mumbai Indians and has staged a resurgence that no one would have imagined. His last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore was one of the reasons why he can be an extremely adept option in the Indian middle-order. He has displayed a wide array of strokes and his expressive strokeplay has riveted the attention of the entire world. He has managed to garner 362 runs from 12 games.
Nitish Rana (Kolkata Knightriders)
Rana was off to a rocky start in IPL 2020, as this Delhi-based southpaw drew the flak of several others. However, the last few games have bestowed him with his lost momentum and form. He has exhibited exemplary return to form with some aggressive strokes and his knocks have proved to be crucial for KKR until now. He has managed to amass 352 runs from 13 games.
Ishan Kishan (Mumbai Indians)
Kishan didn’t get a chance at the very beginning of this year’s campaign, however, when he did, he showed extraordinary batting flair with some incredible strokes. His inaugural knock of 2020 saw him stitching a fabulous 99 against Royal Challengers Bangalore that helped Mumbai take the game to super over from an impossible situation. He has so far garnered 323 runs from 10 games.
Rahul Tewatia (Rajasthan Royals)
Spanning from striking Sheldon Cottrell to 30 runs in an over to leading Rajasthan Royals to a formidable stance in the league, Rahul Tewatia was a revelation of IPL 2020. He has managed to garner 224 runs from 13 games at an astonishing strike rate. He has also proven himself to be an effective bowler to provide significant breakthroughs.
