The young and supremely talented Yashasvi Jaisawal resembles Sachin Tendulkar in his playing style. Yashasvi is an elegant opening batsmen, who was a part of the 2019 U-19 World Cup team. His favourite idol, Sachin Tendulkar met him there and highly spoke about his game and extraordinary performance in the tournament.
Yashasvi had an impressive U-19 tournament, from where he sparked the eyes of many. His scores in the tournament were: 88, 105 not out, 62, 57 not out, 29 not out and 5. He was the highest scorer of the tournament and the third batsman in the tournament’s history to score five half centuries.
Rajasthan Royals have backed up Yashasvi and he will be playing from their side in 2021. All the eyes are set on him as he will make his second appearance for the franchise this year. Sharing the pitch with stalwarts like Josh Butler and Ben Strokes will not be easy, but we hope Yashasvi makes it to the top.
Ravi Bishnoi is a young and talented lad who has just started with his cricketing career. He has been the part of the U-19 worldcup and has performed remarkably there. Clinching a total of 17 wickets, he has impressed many cricketing legends.
In 2021, Ravi will be playing for the Kings XI Punjab. His presence in the team is highly anticipated. Many are expecting from him a crucial performance, which will ultimately help his team.
As the former Indian cricketer, Akash Chopra calls him as “India’s next spin wizard”, all eyes will he on him in the coming edition of the IPL.
Just like his counterpart Bishnoi, Kartik is all set to spill the magic of his pace bowling. He possesses the ability to both swing and bounce the ball at great tendencies.
Kartik too has been a part of the U-19 Worldcup, where he performed remarkably well. He took a total of 11 wickets at an average of 13.90. He has been picked up by the Rajasthan Royals and is all set to back him up in several games.
Tyagi’s ripping pace and confusing rever-swing is expected to spill it’s magic in the tournament. He will be bowling aside Jofra Archer, which can be a pressure to him. However, he is expected to hurl over it all and deliver his best performance. All eyes are set on him yet again.
