The 2024 IPL season saw a strong resurgence of pace bowling, especially with the introduction of the impact player rule. These young pacers have not only proved their mettle in the IPL but have also put themselves on the radar for potential selection in the Indian national team. Their success highlights the growing depth of Indian pace bowling and the exciting prospects waiting to make their mark on the international stage.

This trend is evident in the top five wicket-takers among uncapped Indian players, where all are fast bowlers showcasing their skills.

#1 Tushar Deshpande (CSK)

Chennai Super Kings has a history of nurturing raw talent, and Tushar Deshpande is a prime example. Following in the footsteps of players like Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur, Deshpande has steadily improved. This season, he captured 17 wickets in just 13 games, boasting the best economy rate (below 9) among uncapped Indian bowlers with over 10 wickets.

#2 Harshit Rana (KKR)

Rana’s rise to fame started in the very first match, where he defended 13 runs in the final over against SRH’s Heinrich Klaasen and Marco Jansen, leading KKR to victory. This young pacer has been a consistent threat, grabbing 17 wickets in just 12 matches. With a game remaining, he has a chance to top the list.

#3 Yash Dayal (RCB)

Dayal’s story is one of redemption. After a difficult IPL 2023 season where he was smashed for five sixes in an over, he redeemed himself in 2024 by dismissing MS Dhoni and securing the last league-stage win for RCB, sending them to the playoffs. He finished the season with 15 wickets in 14 games.

#4 Vaibhav Arora (KKR)

Hailing from the hills of Himachal Pradesh, Vaibhav Arora has impressed everyone with his bowling this season. He has complemented the likes of Harshit Rana and Mitchell Starc effectively, taking 10 wickets in just nine games. He could potentially surpass Yash Thakur’s tally depending on his performance in the remaining match.

#5 Yash Thakur (LSG)
