#3 Shimron Hetmyer

Nicholas Pooran's partner-in-crime at the Guyana Amazon Warriors, Shimron Hetmyer scored 267 runs in 11 games to finish CPL 2020 as the fourth-highest run-scorer. With 3 fifties to his name, the southpaw showed why he is regarded as one of the brightest prospects in West Indian cricket.

Hetmyer was signed by the Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2020 auction after being released by the Royal Challengers Bangalore, who played him lower down the order and minimised his effectiveness. Shreyas Iyer's side invested in Indian talent primarily, but the fact that they went after the 23-year-old means that he is definitely in their plans.

Hetmyer could shine in a solid batting lineup that could take much of the pressure off him.


#2 Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Mujeeb Ur Rahman picked up 16 wickets in CPL 2020 to finish as the tournament's second-highest wicket-taker, and conceded runs at an economy rate of 5.29. The Afghanistan spinner will play alongside Pooran at KXIP in IPL 2020, and he will also be a key part of the team's plans.

Mujeeb is excellent in the powerplay and has an arsenal of variations, and he will be deadly in the UAE. With KXIP's other spin options being Ravi Bishnoi, Murugan Ashwin and Krishnappa Gowtham, the youngster could be the X-factor for the side.

Mohammad Nabi almost single-handedly took the St Lucia Zouks to the final of CPL 2020, picking up 12 wickets at an economy rate of 5.1 and scoring 156 runs as well. The former Afghanistan captain will play for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2020, and alongside his countryman Rashid Khan, he will be invaluable to the team.

Nabi would also be excellent in the UAE, and his experience and ability to take on the spinners will make him a vital part of SRH's middle order. The 35-year-old will certainly be a candidate for the MVP award in IPL 2020.
