Uncapped Players

The Uncapped Players in the IPL Auction always have a buzz that surrounds them. The likes of Mayank Markande, T Natrajan, Md. Siraj and Krunal Pandya have bagged large sums of money when they were uncapped. Sunil Gavaskar also had shown some dejection by saying, “Too many crorepatis, in the IPL.” Based on those lines the uncapped players in this year’s IPL also took home huge sums of money. Here is a look at the top 5 highest paid uncapped players: 

1) Abhishek Sharma for 6.75 Crores to Sunrisers Hyderabad: 

Abhishek Sharma, the spin-bowling all-rounder from the 2018 World Cup-winning Under-19 was picked by the Sunrisers Hyderabad. He has been backed by the Sunrisers for the 3rd consecutive year. He can hit the ball a long way. On the EspnCricinfo show, one of the panelists mentioned that Abhishek Sharma is going for big money. But if SRH needs the best of Abhishek, they need to bat him up the order.  

2) Rahul Tripathi for 8.5 Crores to Sunrisers Hyderabad is one of the best Uncapped Players:

Rahul Tripathi, the Maharashtra batsman, has been banging the door of the national team. Debuting back in 2016 for the RPSG, Rahul has now become an integral part of the KKR team. He is one of the best-uncapped players. He forms the core of the Sunrisers middle-order. They can look to frame their batting around him.

3) Rahul Tewatia for 9 Crores to Gujarat Titans is one of the best Uncapped Players:  

Rahul Tewatia for 9 Crores, on a personal note, is a very very risky move. Tewatia came into the limelight after smoking 5 sixes of the over of Sheldon Cottrel. But ever since, has done very little with the bat. His leg-spin bowling is one of the best. He has always been traveling with the national team which adds experience to his portfolio. He also has to bat up the order. 

4) Shahrukh Khan for 9 Crores to Punjab Kings is one of the best Uncapped Players: 

Shahrukh Khan, the finisher from Tamil Nadu has made it big in the IPL Auction for the second consecutive year. After hitting a last-ball six to secure a victory for the Tamil Nadu state team in the Vijay Hazare, Shahrukh portrayed his skills. He is someone who can bat very well lower down the order. He has been working on his fitness too. At 9 Crores Punjab certainly has got a decent buy who can bat number 5 or number 6.  

5) Avesh Khan for 10 Crores to Lucknow Super Giants:

Avesh Khan for 10 Crores is a value pick. If Deepak Chahar takes home 14 Crores, he does the same duties at 10 Crores. While speaking to Star TV Network, Gautam Gambhir said, “Avesh is a bowler around whom we can frame our bowling attack. He has been playing the IPL for a very long time.” Avesh is a death bowling specialist. He has been consistently bowling 140+ and this is exactly what Lucknow needs.
