We are just a few days away from the biggest extravaganza of T20 cricket; Indian Premier League. This IPL will mark the tournament’s tenth edition.
The Indian Premier League has always been able to play a platform for rising stars of world cricket. Each year, the tournament throws up some players who stand above the rest and make a mark. We shed a light on some players who may just stand out in the upcoming season.
1. Jason Roy (Gujarat Lions)
The English opener is in a fantastic form these days. It was his fantastic performance with the bat that made his entry into VIVO IPL 2017 quite possible. Gujarat Lions (GL) bought him for a whooping sum of 1 crore.
He has a good experience of playing T20 cricket with more than 3500 runs at an average of around 29 and blitzing strike rate of 145. This is going to be his debut in the IPL championship. However, he might not be able to play the entire tournament due to England’s series against Ireland in May.
