These uncapped players have not only impressed with their batting prowess but also showcased the depth of talent in Indian cricket.

Their success story is an inspiration for aspiring youngsters, proving that dedication and hard work can pave the way for success on the biggest stage.

#2 Riyan Parag (RR)

After trials with several franchises, Singh rose from the ashes to become a mainstay for Punjab’s struggling batting lineup. The Chhattisgarh all-rounder smashed 354 runs at a healthy average of 44.25 and a blistering strike rate of 164.65.

#3 Shashank Singh (PBKS)

A player who previously bounced between teams like SRH and DC without a fixed home, Singh found redemption with Punjab Kings. The Chhattisgarh all-rounder emerged as a crucial batsman for their otherwise struggling batting line-up, scoring 354 runs at a healthy average of 44.25 and a strike rate of 164.65.

#4 Abhishek Porel (DC)

Originally intended as a backup for Rishabh Pant, Porel grabbed his opportunity when it came. Stepping in for the injured Pant, he impressed everyone with his batting, scoring 327 runs in 12 innings for Delhi Capitals.

#5 Prabhsimran Singh (PBKS)
