The Indian Premier League fifteenth season has produced a slew of promising new players. In a short period of time, these players have become crucial players for their respective franchise. Two new teams were added for the 2022 edition, providing greater opportunity for local Indian players who have excelled at the challenge.
We’ll look at three uncapped Indian bowlers who have been game changers for their franchises, have been at their best, and are on the verge of being India’s future team.
1. Umran Malik
By hitting speeds of above 150 kmph, the uncapped Sunrisers Hyderabad fast bowler from Jammu has had the cricket world wondering. Umran Malik, who hails from a tiny town in Jammu, has left his mark on the Indian Premier League and on the wooden stumps with his tremendous pace, which has left even experienced and in-form batters like David Miller scrambling for the delivery off the field.
Across every match he has got to play for the Sunrisers Hyderabad so far, Umran has won the title for the fastest delivery of the match.
His form in the IPL 2022 so far has shown that he has gained more confidence, and with a few variants in his belt, he would be a bowler to watch on the Indian team.
2. Mukesh Choudhary
Mukesh Choudhary may not be as quick as Umran Malik, but he has become one of the most inspiring stories of the 2022 Indian Premier League. Choudhary has enjoyed a fantastic ride in the last few months, from becoming a Sunrisers Hyderabad net bowler to having to repeat the task with Chennai Super Kings during IPL 2021’s UAE edition to rising as the yellow army’s crucial pacer.
CSK purchased him at the base price at the player auction after impressing M. S. Dhoni at his tenure. And the investment paid off handsomely. So far, the clever left-arm bowler has 11 wickets in eight games.
Mukesh Choudhary stole the show for Chennai Super Kings in the 46th match of the ongoing IPL season against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday.
Choudhary finished with 4 for 46, including the dismissals of Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi in quick succession.
3. Mohsin Khan
He has made the most of the opportunity presented to him at his new club after warming the bench for three seasons with the Mumbai Indians.
Despite being classed as a medium-pacer, the 23-year-old from Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal can pace in the 140s. The delivery that has seen the spine of Rishabh Pant was recorded at 145kmph against the Delhi Capitals.
In the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League, Mohsin, who did play his just first match in 2020 and managed to make his List A and T20 debuts in 2018, has taken eight wickets from four matches.
4. Kuldeep Sen
Kuldeep Yadav, marking his IPL debut for Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium, held Lucknow Super Giants to 15 runs in the final over. On Sunday night, he also proclaimed his advent as a fast bowler with a 146.3 kmph ball to Lucknow opener Quinton de Kock.
Sen took four wickets against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League on Tuesday, April 26. Sen put up his best IPL numbers this campaign against the Faf du Plessis-led side, propelling his team to the top of the points table.
The tall quick was brought in as a death over and yorker expert, and he showed off his skills against Bangalore while defending only 145 runs. However, when defending a target, he was hit for a six in the last over of the previous two games. India’s selection will have to think about another 90mph bowler in the future.
