The recently concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy gave a clear picture of the franchises all players are fit for.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 is fast approaching. But before the tournament begins, there is still a lot to be revealed. This season’s mini-auction will take place in Chennai on February 18. It is that fateful day when the fortunes of a few players will turn for good. There are several foreign players who have chosen to go under the hammer.
However, more than that, there are several other uncapped Indian players who have been recurring for getting an IPL squad. It’s also a good time for IPL teams to go through the rosters of players and make their ideal pick. The recently concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy gave a clear picture of the franchises all players are fit for.
We at CricTracker have decided to create our own roster of uncapped Indian players, who we believe have a good chance of getting a squad on auction day. We made this list based on the performance of the T20 tournament recently and also their career stats.
So let’s take a look at the top 5 uncapped Indian players to watch out for in the IPL auction:
1. Kedar Devdhar
Kedar Devdhar has performed well in recent years for his national team, Baroda. In the recently concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament, we saw Devdhar be one of the best players. He finished the tournament as the second best run-getter. In the eight innings he played, he scored 349 points with an average of 69.80.
Throughout the tournament he had a slightly mediocre hit rate of 113.68, but you have to understand that he also played in a few low-scoring games. In addition to that, he also showed a good temperament. He led the Baroda team to the final after Krunal Pandya had to quit the team halfway due to a family loss.
Devdhar has proven his worth as a season-after-season opener for Baroda, but hasn’t found much luck in the cash-rich league. He played for the now-defunct Deccan Chargers once in 2011. He only played one game that season and never played again. This year, he could only find a few bidders at the auction.
