#1 Luvnith Sisodia

Luvnith Sisodia IPL 2022

The young wicket-keeping batter hails from the very heart of Karnataka and will be an instrumental force for the Challengers as IPL 2022 beckons. The young man holds a rare record of scoring a triple-hundred in a One Day where he played in a corporate tournament.

He is a fine striker of the ball and is capable of scoring a few quick runs, thanks to his strong knack for boundaries. More importantly, he is a fine pick behind the stumps and can easily be a pick to replace Dinesh Karthik if the former KKR captain runs out of depth, in IPL 2022. His big-hitting flair is a bonus to the Challengers.

#2 Raj Bawa

Raj Bawa is a mad striker of the ball and can contribute in equal proportions with the cherry in his arms. He is perfectly cut for the shortest format of the game given his eye for the aerial route way too often. His fine display against England in the youth World Cup final blew his demand through the roof as every IPL team eyes a strong name in the middle-order and Bawa’s recent exploits in the Ranji Trophy will serve as a massive catalyst for the kid. He will be watched closely in IPL 2022.

#3 Rajvardhan Hangargekar

The young speed demon hailing all the way from Maharashtra will be featuring for the first time in India’s cash-rich league, in IPL 2022. Chennai Super Kings didn’t hesitate in splurging for the young sensation who got India’s hopes high in the recently concluded U19 World Cup and came back with amazing figures, leaving India’s oppositions reeling in agony.

He is an excellent fast bowler with a firm penchant for timbre. He can move around the ball very nicely and trouble the batters way too frequently with his swing at a menacing pace of 138 plus. He has a towering physical stature and that is a blessing for any fast bowler.

#4 Ravi Bishnoi

The young leg-spinner has been turning quite a few heads since his arrival at the big stage. Even though the international arcade is still to witness him blow at his fullest potential, yet Ravi Bishnoi has already been doing a brilliant job in the IPL. He can turn the ball by a good deal and adheres to a very fine line. Playing in the Indian colours, Bishnoi has already gathered valuable experience that will help him hone his skills further, a prime-boost for a leg-spinner. IPL 2022 will be a big moment in his career.

#5 Yash Dhull is a huge contender for the IPL 2022 EMERGING PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARD


The India U19 captain, Yash Dhull will be the most glittering name out of all the young guns who will be starring in IPL 2022. The man who led India to another youth crown, Dhull was in sensational form throughout the tournament.

He is the man with a perfect sense of anchoring an innings or even blazing a storm as the situation would demand. He can also roll his arms by a decent deal which makes him a priceless pick for the future. He has a stellar technique that actually can transcend him to the throne of young players who will be featuring in the cash-rich extravaganza’s fifteenth edition.
