IPL 2021 Players To Look Out For

There are some outstanding cricket players who have spun magic in the previous matches they have played. Whenever they stepped foot on the field, they never failed to stun the audience with their unmatched skills and gameplay. Here are some of the IPL 2021 players the audience should look out for.

Devdutt Padikkal: Royal Challengers Bangalore

The 20-year-old batsman of the Royal Challengers Bangalore, Devdutt Padikkal is a force to be reckoned with and one of the most talented IPL 2021 players. He is the most consistent performer going around in the Domestic circuit. Be it the IPL 2020, Vijay Hazare Trophy or Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, he has showcased a mesmerizing game and has been consistent throughout. In IPL 2020, Padikkal had scored 473 runs from 15 innings, leaving behind Kohli and AB de Villiers. If Devdutt Padikkal continues to show the same calibre and scoring streak in IPL 2021, it will be no wonder that selectors will be swarming him left right and centre!

Rahul Tripathi: Kolkata Knight Riders

One of the experienced IPL 2021 players, Rahul Tripathi has played for four seasons now. The Maharashtra-born opener has jumped teams from Rising Pune Supergiant to Rajasthan Royals to Kolkata Knight Riders. Playing in the top-order in Rising Pune Supergiant, Tripathi was in his best form. His performance dipped when playing for Rajasthan Royals in low-order but picked up once again when he played for Kolkata Knight Riders. Until now, Rahul Tripathi has scored 988 runs at an average of 25.3 and a strike rate of 134.8. He is expected to open for Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2021 again.

Kartik Tyagi: Rajasthan Royals

Kartik Tyagi rose to fame in 2020 with his amazing performance in the U19 World Cup 2020. In his debut IPL season, he managed to get 9 wickets from 11 innings at an economy rate of 9.6 leaving everyone impressed. Tyagi became one of the net bowlers in the Australia tour with his impressive pace and control on line and length. One of the most anticipated IPL 2021 players, Kartik Tyagi is all set to represent Rajasthan Royals in the upcoming season.

Prasidh Krishna: Kolkata Knight Riders

A leading pacer for Karnataka, Prasidh Krishna has been a consistent performer in domestic tournaments. Playing as a pacer for the Kolkata Knight Riders, he has been consistent in his performance in Vijay Hazare Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Due to less number of opportunities offered to him, his performance in the last two IPL seasons was below-average. But this hasn’t stopped the audience from expecting an outstanding performance in the upcoming season.

Rahul Tewatia: Rajasthan Royals

One of the best all-rounders representing the Rajasthan Royals, Rahul Tewatia’s performance in the last IPL season was the highlight of his IPL career. He scored 255 runs along with getting 10 wickets, giving his performance a major boost. We hope that he brings the same level of energy and gameplay in the upcoming season.
