  • India not being able to hold this IPL season
  • Young performers of this season
  • Empty stadiums

This season IPL has not been the same for any of us. India was not able to host IPL for its people so IPL is now being hosted by Dubai. Earlier we all used to be hitched to our screens when our favorite teams played. IPL attracts attention not only from its cricket fans but also from every sort of person. Bollywood stars, businessman, everyone loves the glorious tournament. But this time we are seeing an empty stadium, no one to cheer for our players, within the stands. But what remains constant is the loved one holds for it. Everyone is still eager to watch all the matches and also one thing which hasn't changed in IPL is providing us with new players who could be our new cricket sensation. There has been a much young cricket player who has given such great performances this year.

Yashasvi Jaiswal is one such player Yashasvi Jaiswal plays for Rajasthan Royal. He made his debut against Chennai Super Kings. Rajasthan Royal bought him for 2.4 cr. He had been in the under-19 World Cup team where his performance was praised by many including Sachin Tendulkar.
Yashasvi has been the youngest Indian player to score a List A double ton only when he was 17 years old. He also holds a record in Limca Book of Record when he was not out at 319 in his school cricket in the Giles Shield match. Even in the under-19 World Cup, he was the top scorer. Jaiswal comes from a low background. He was born in UP but later shifted to Mumbai, to train himself for cricket there. He took work in a shop and used to live there. But the poor boy was unable to manage work and his training thus he was ejected from there. Then he stayed at a tent selling Panipuri. With having such a humble background, one could rise there is not what everybody can achieve.

The next one to have an eye for is Ravi Bishnoi. Kings XI Punjab has bought Ravi Bishnoi after being impressed by his spinner skills and let us all agree that he hasn't led any of down. He was bought for 2 crores. Akash Chopra referred to Ravi Bishnoi as India's next 'spin Wizard'. Ravi was the highest wicket-taker in his last under-19 World Cup. He took in a total of 17 wickets in the under-19 World Cup and was also named 'man of the match'. Ravi was born in Jodhpur. As there was a lack of facilities to play cricket, he was determined to go ahead and take his chance. Along with his friends, Ravi has opened a cricket academy there only to train themselves. All these efforts were not in vain as his hard work is paying him off.

There are a few more who are being recognized. Devdutt Padikkal is one of them. He was born in Kerala. He plays for RCB and was bought by RCB in 2019 IPL also. He made his debut in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and also became the leading run-scorer. He also represented himself in the under 19 World Cup.

The next emerging talent is Prithvi Shaw. Prithvi Shaw plays for Delhi capitals. Shaw has played a test match against West Indies and was regarded as the youngest batsman to make a Test century. He was the captain of India's under-19 cricket team. He was born in Bihar but took his training from Mumbai. Indian oil has been a sponsor to him and also he has figured in a documentary film called 'beyond all boundaries'. He has a long way to go to enhance his performance.
