Four U-19 Sensations Who Can Trigger Price War During The 2022 IPL Auction

The auction for the cash-rich Indian T-20 league, IPL, is all set to start on February 12 and 13 this year. Apart from international and domestic talents, the other pool that is going to attract the attention of bidders is Under-19. The teenage sensations have been doing exceedingly well in the U-19 World Cup tournament being held in the Caribbean Islands. Therefore, the occasion is ideally suited to focus on the U-19 talents who can set ablaze the IPL auction stage this time. 

Yash Dhull 

He is bound to be chased by all franchises for his ability to fit into any format with ease. Being the captain of the junior team, he brings leadership qualities to the table as well. As for his batting, his 82 off 100 against Proteas has skipped several heartbeats and taken his fortunes further north. Considering the fact that the U-19 captains have usually invited attractive offers from the bidders, Yash will certainly be laughing all the way to the bank this time around. 

Vicky Ostwal 

By far the numero uno bowler in the ongoing cricket carnival in West Indies, Ostwal will be eyed by most teams to beef up their bowling department. His fantabulous “fifer” against South Africa has provided sufficient proof of his variety as well as potency as a bowler. The rate at which he is snaring the opposition batters in the ongoing U-19 World Cup Ostwal could easily end up with the most number of wickets in the tournament. With IPL in all likelihood to be held in India, the “mystery spinner” could turn out to be a prized possession in spin-friendly conditions. 

Harnoor Singh 

He has already displayed a lot of spunk in the ongoing quadrennial tournament to establish his credential as a batsman in the classical mould. Apart from the World Cup, Harnoor has shown consistency in the friendlies as well. His knock of 88 in India’s second match in the WC encounter proved beyond any doubt that he can adapt well to any kind of situation and use the gears accordingly. So, it won’t be a surprise if franchises go madly after him during the auction. 

Angkrish Raghuvanshi 

His credential as a bankable opener is bound to hold him in good stead when the hammer goes down during the IPL auction. Batters are aplenty but a player who can weather the initial storm devoid of any problems is a rare species these days. If his 79 against Ireland had class written over it then his 144 against Uganda was a massy entertainer. Hence, it won’t shock anyone if IPL teams go on a rampage to make him a part of their playing XI.
