Another great edition of the Indian Premier League 2021 is nearing its end. The last match of the tournament will be played on 15th October and we can’t help but feel sad. With the IPL 2021 going on, every one of us had something interesting and exciting to look forward to. It was a delight watching our favourite IPL talents showcasing their talent and gameplay.
On the bright side, the end of the edition means recognising some of the best players in IPL 2021 with awards. True to its word, IPL has been a platform for young and aspiring cricketers to demonstrate their skills. And over the years, there have been many players who have grabbed great success through this tournament.
Below-mentioned is a list of some of the best players in IPL 2021 and worthy contenders in the IPL emerging player list-
Harshal Patel - Royal Challengers Bangalore
Not only is Harshal Patel the RCB best player, but is also the best bowler in IPL 2021. The medium-fast bowler of the team is the highest wicket-taker in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League. A great IPL talent, Harshal Patel has scalped 29 wickets in the 13 matches he has played. The 30-year-old also has a five-wicket haul and a four-wicket haul to his name. Harshal Patel is undoubtedly one of the best uncapped players in IPL 2021. Unknown to many, the bowler is drawing a salary of ₹20 lakh this year and it shouldn’t be a surprise if he earns in crores the next year.
Varun Chakravarthy - Kolkata Knight Riders
KKR’s best player Varun Chakravarthy is also in the top 10 of the highest wicket-takers list. The leg-spin bowler has taken 16 wickets in the 14 matches he has been a part of. One of the best players in IPL 2021, Varun Chakravarthy is an impact player who has the potential to succeed on an international level as well. In a match against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Abu Dhabi, this IPL talent knocked the team by 9 wickets. Varun Chakravarthy was also named ‘Man Of The Match’ for his mind-blogging spell of 3 for 13. The IPL star performer was also selected as a part of the Indian squad in the ICC T20 World Cup.
Ravi Bishnoi - Punjab Kings
At the mere age of 21, Ravi Bishnoi is turning heads on the cricket pitch. He joined Punjab Kings straight out of the ICC U-19 World Cup and has proven himself as a great IPL talent. The Rajasthan-born bowler is making headlines for the mysterious way he throws ‘googly’. In a recent match against Chennai Super Kings, Ravi Bishnoi brilliantly bowled the seasoned player MS Dhoni, the third time in the series. A must-include name in the IPL emerging player list, the leg-spinner of Punjab Kings has taken 12 wickets in the 9 matches that he played. Ravi Bishnoi is definitely one of the best players in IPL 2021 whose talent we can’t wait to see more of.
Ruturaj Gaikwad - Chennai Super Kings
At 3rd position on the chart of leading run-scorers in IPL 2021, Ruturaj Gaikwad has been a great asset to the team. After missing the award by an inch in the last season, he is surely a worthy addition to the IPL emerging player list. His cat-like light footwork has been a boon for Chennai Super Kings. Ruturaj Gaikwad’s gameplay is one of a kind - relaxed stance, smooth bat swing, ability to pick length quickly, balanced, secure defence, delightful footwork and the ability to find gaps. One of the best players in IPL 2021, his unbeaten 101 against Rajasthan Royals was a treat to watch! So far, the IPL talent Ruturaj Gaikwad has scored a total of 533 runs in the 14 matches he has played.
Shivam Mavi - Kolkata Knight Riders
Shivam Mavi made headlines for his excellent pace at the Under-19 level but unfortunately, didn’t have a very encouraging IPL introduction back in 2018. He got to show glimpses of his pace and skills when he started and now is one of the best players in IPL 2021. The IPL talent Shivam Mavi has the aggression and nips to trouble the batsmen on the pitch. He has a steady hand with the ball and has the ability to bowl variations with exceptional skill. A must-include in the IPL emerging player list, Shivam Mavi brought his A-game to the field in the recent match against Rajasthan Royals. He was adjudged “Man Of The Match” after he ran a riot with the ball against the opposite team. He is definitely one of KKR’s best players.
Avesh Khan - Delhi Capitals
Avesh Khan is another uncapped player in IPL 2021 gracing the pitch with his talent, skills and outstanding gameplay. He is one of the best bowlers in IPL 2021, right after Harshal Patel, leading in the 2nd position of the Purple Cap chart. Avesh Khan has picked up 23 wickets in the 15 matches he has played for Delhi Capitals in the ongoing edition of IPL. The right-arm fast bowler is an exceptional IPL talent leading the smart wickets chart in IPL. One of the best players in IPL 2021, Avesh Khan is unquestionably one of the worthy contenders in the IPL emerging player list.
Yashasvi Jaiswal - Rajasthan Royals
One of Rajasthan Royals’ best players, Yashasvi Jaiswal has played brilliantly throughout the tournament. The destructive opener played exceptional innings in the second leg of the tournament and added his name to the fastest fifties list. The IPL talent Yashasvi Jaiswal scored a 19 ball 50 against Chennai Super Kings to achieve this feat. One of the most talented uncapped players in IPL 2021, he has played 10 matches and has scored a total of 249 runs with an average of 24.90. Yashasvi Jaiswal has an impressive strike rate of 148.29. The left-handed batsman is without a doubt a deserving addition to the IPL emerging player list.
