IPL has never missed producing talents for the Indian contingent. Effectively this time, it has gone a step further; supreme Talents from different parts of India have been brought under the limelight. The best feeling about it is that India has got some raw sources from the newbies lacking in Indian cricket team culture. The attitude the uncapped players were able to bring in makes cricket tougher for international players.
Without much ado, let’s get to know the new uncapped bowlers of India, who are making the stage their own.
The pace spearhead from Uttar Pradesh is a rare talent in India. A left-arm quickie who can clock speeds north of 150kmph. Unlike other left-arm fast bowlers, Mohsin Khan takes the ball away from the right-handers and snags more edge. Whilst he brings in the ball towards the left-handers, he keeps their eyes open all the time.
What’s more captivating in his kitty is his cutters, even with the new ball. Moreover, his routine of making the key scalps makes his performance otherwordly.
Mohsin’s dismissal of Rishabh Pant and Venkatesh Iyer in this season would show the quality of seam presentation lurks inside him. Once he got the rhythm of this tournament, he became eye-catching with his new ball swing and pace. He is a decent death over the bowler, and he is a front-runner to wear the blue jersey soon.
As we all know, this speedster from Srinagar is the sensation of this IPL season. Even though he wasn’t consistent, he could reap healthy fruit when he did well.
An Indian bowler who can express speed more than 150kmph consistently, and this hasn’t happened before often. His underlying strength is the tight line he bowls. Never feeds width for the batters. At the same time, he has got extraordinary bouncers and yorkers. Anything from that fiery pace looks haunting for a batter to bunker down.
Spells become outstanding whenever he bowls the most number of good length balls; it eventually reaps many rewards. Contrastingly, his spell becomes expensive when a technically shrewd batter picks his slot balls as Ruturaj Gaikwad did against him this season. He blows hot and blows cold; when he blows hot, he can be a match-winner.
Yash Dayal is yet another express arrival from Uttar Pradesh who can impress the cricketing folklore efficiently with his genuine left-arm swing bowling and pace.
Kept on the bench for the first four games. But when he was given the cap, he was in a hurry to impress. From then, he did specials so that he couldn’t be overlooked.
This Left-armer, with his back-of-the-arm slower, makes batters get bemused by the outcome of the deliveries. Above all, his perfection in bringing out slow Yorkers makes him a good contender for death-over bowling.
Bit expensive bowler but has a lot of new stock bowling for an Indian pace bowler.

Mukesh Choudhary is another left-arm seamer with genuine speed and moves the ball towards the right-handers with the new ball. CSK uses him as a powerplay specialist, expects a prolific three overs spell from him, and hasn’t missed coping with it.
What separates him is his achievement of scalping the wickets of the big fishes. His wickets of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Kane Williamson put him straight on the map.
Fast bowling seemed frivolous fun when Chowdary’s Yorker collapsed Ishan Kishan and rattled the stumps. The incredible spell he bowled against MI in the low scoring match has yielded recognition from the cricket experts. The kind of seam presentation and the spots he pitched in made him look too brainy.
The most promising find for India would be this left-arm spinner from Tamil Nadu, considering how he is bowling at present; the one who has got plenty of x-factors in him.
The first among them will be the pace variation. Never settles in at the same kind of speed. This makes the batters hesitant to go against him. Also, his slower balls tempt the batter to go hard.
The arc he fetches with his simple action makes him the best. Above all comes the height factor. When the ball gets released from a higher angle, it gets an extra nip.
He rarely uses his turning deliveries; he mostly likes to go with the straighter one and arm balls. And that’s why the batters get surprised when the ball turns. Undoubtedly he is the best spin find of this season for India, and much will obviously depend on his performance in the playoffs.
Kuldeep Sen of Rajasthan Royals believes in pace. He tries to hit the deck harder with his high arm release. That’s why his deliveries are fetching turbocharge after pitching, either with pace or bounce. He makes fast bowling so pleasing for the eyes with the height factor.
He can deliver at his utmost speed from the first ball of his spell in every match. For that courage, he snagged the wickets of Faf Du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell in two successive deliveries in a low scoring match against RCB. Also, Kuldeep Sen took four key scalps in that match and made his troops home. This is something spectacular from a three-match-old young talent.
Kuldeep Sen has always been brought in to bowl two middle overs and two death overs in this tournament by Rajasthan Royals. With the factors he possesses, it might be worth watching him bowling with the shiny new ball.
