IPL 2019: The Dark Horses in each team
If we take a look at the history of IPL, we see a trend that a new player emerges to take his side all way to the winning lane. Last IPL it was a certain Ambati Rayudu who literally came out of nowhere to make CSK which was on a comeback trail and help them clinch a record 3rd title in the process.
The IPL is a place where a new superstar emerges on the block irrespective of Indian or an International. Players like Yusuf Pathan, Jadeja, Axar Patel and many more can attribute their success to the IPL. International stars like Pollard, Warner, Bravo are some of the overseas stars who are a household name in the world of cricket.
Every team has some underrated performers in their ranks and a few good performances from them on the biggest Twenty 20 stage can change people's perception.
It will be no different this time around as there could be some individuals who may not be a big name in their side but could end up as a standout and take IPL 2019 by storm.
#8 Delhi Capitals- Sandeep Lamichhane
The first ever player from Nepal to play in the IPL represented the Delhi based franchise last season and was retained ahead of this year's auction. That alone shows his value to the team.
He is currently playing in the Big bash league where he represents Melbourne Stars. Just in his maiden season, he managed to grab eyeballs of many including the team's skipper Glenn Maxwell who has heaped praise on this 18-year-old youngster from Nepal. Even one of the best spinner going around in the world of cricket Rashid Khan has credited his bowling.
Even though he could play only a few matches for the Delhi Capitals last season, he showed immense potential and impressed each and everyone with his leg breaks.
He can surely be darkhorse to be watched out in the IPL 2019.
