#5 Anrich Nortje
Very few would have heard this name in India and also in the world. He is not someone who is famous around the world or is playing T20 leagues around the world. Anrich Nortje is a Right Arm Fast bowler who plays for Cape Town Blitz in Mzansi Super League 2018.
Although he was bought at his base price of 20 Lakhs INR by the Kolkata Knight Riders he might be the one player who could shine in the IPL 2019. He has just played 6 T20 matches so far only but has impressed many legends of the game. He has earned praise from Dale Steyn and Ashwell Prince. In the six T20 matches that he has participated in, he has taken 19 wickets with a great economy of just 6.47runs per over. He also has a great first class record with 162 wickets in 47 matches. The KKR coach, Jacques Kallis could be the mind behind KKR buying him in the IPL Auction this year.
