Last year, Rashid Khan used IPL as a platform to transform his career

The extravagant tournament, Indian Premier League, sets a platform for unknown overseas cricketers to buy the attention of the Indian crowd and the rival franchises, which helps build their career. Players like Sunil Narine, Rashid Khan, David Miller, David Warner, Shaun Marsh and others have earned not only fame but big money for their heroics in the IPL.

Here is a list of five foreign players who are unlooked-for but they can take everyone by surprise in the forthcoming season of the cash-rich tournament.

Can he replicate what Rashid Khan did?

The Nepali teenager became the first ever cricketer from his country to be a part of the Indian Premier League. Sandeep Lamichhane is well-known for picking up a hat-trick in ICC U19 World Cup against Ireland in 2016, aged only 15.

Coming to the recent IPL statistics, number of wickets taken by the leg-spinners rose drastically against the finger-spinners and will only be a sign of motivation for the 17-year-old, who was picked by Delhi Daredevils for ₹ 20 lacs.

With the undiscovered factor up his sleeves, he can surely astound the IPL fraternity.
