Cricket fans are eagerly anticipating another season of thrilling action as they eagerly await the IPL 2024 schedule. It’s no wonder, as a nation obsessed with cricket, we look forward to two months filled with non-stop matches to make our summers more enjoyable.
IPL has unearthed lots of youngsters like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma as well as Ravi Bishnoi and Arshdeep in the recent years. This year, franchises have put highly invested in youngsters fetching them big bucks.
Let us have a look at some of the yongsters to watch out for in the IPL 2024:
The Delhi Capitals have made an impactful addition to their squad by securing the services of the talented wicketkeeper-batsman Kumar Kushagra for a substantial INR 7.20 Crore. The 20-year-old cricketer from Jharkhand has shown immense promise early in his domestic career, exhibiting noteworthy performances across various formats.
Despite facing some inconsistencies in the recent Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy seasons, Kushagra’s potential has not gone unnoticed by franchises, leading to a competitive bidding war for his signature. While his T20 record shows 140 runs in 11 innings, which might seem modest, he has displayed a more impressive average of 46.66 in 23 one-dayers, indicating his ability to excel in longer formats.
With his hard-hitting batting style and skills behind the stumps, Kumar Kushagra brings a valuable combination of talent and potential to the Delhi Capitals squad, making him a player to watch out for in the upcoming cricket seasons.
