The Indian Premier League (IPL) has always acted as a platform to find hidden talents. Over the years, the annual T20 competition has given the country many supremely talented players like Hardik Pandya and Yuzvendra Chahal, who are wrecking havoc in the international circuit nowadays.

This year hasn't been any different and though we are only 9 days into the tournament, many uncapped players have started to knock the door of the national selectors. Let us have a look at the 5 cricketers who can expect the precious blue jersey anytime soon:

#5 Ishan Kishan (Mumbai Indians)

Semi Final 1 - ICC Under 19 World Cup

Mumbai Indians' think-tank had to deal with overbearing criticism when they invested Rs 6.2 crores on a 19-year-old wicket-keeper from Jharkhand. But their gamble is paying off pretty well, as Kishan has scored 93 runs in 3 games, with two scores of 40 or more. Kishan had only one bad day in the office in the second match against SRH, but that was an extremely low-scoring encounter.

Besides that, Kishan has done pretty well for the defending champions. He scored 40 runs in the first game and 44 in his team's last game against DD. More importantly, he is scoring runs pretty quickly at a strike rate of over 150. With many contemplating about India's next wicket-keeper, once MS Dhoni decides to call the curtains, Kishan is surely making it to the selectors' notebooks.
