Ruturaj Gaikwad

He also made his IPL appearance last season for the Chennai Super Kings and has been remarkable. Furthermore, he has so far recorded three consecutive fifties as the IPL 2020 was coming to an end. He has also been exemplary in IPL 2021.

Krishnappa Gowtham

Gowtham makes the list as one of the IPL players who earned his maiden call for the Indian tour of Sri Lanka. The all-rounder has experience as he has played in 24 IPL fixtures. He is known for his big-hitting capabilities and economical bowling spells with the new ball.
