After only 5 games, Will Jacks is already in the pole position for most runs. The youngster is a promising talent. He has also bagged an IPL contract. Will Jacks is most importantly known for being technically sound, yet being attacking. He has a good game against the short ball. The second on the list is Jos Butler who needs no introduction. Each of us has seen his capabilities in the IPL 2022 season. He single-handedly pulled the game away in the favor of the Rajasthan team. He is doing the same for the Paarl Royals.

Imaad Fortuin is a new name in South African domestic cricket. But Aaron Phangiso is a pretty old one. Phangiso is one of the senior-most players in the league.
