Top 10 oldest players in IPL 2016
Shadab Jakati - 35
Shadab Jakati, a left-arm spinner from Goa, rose to prominence very late in his career courtesy of his performances for the Chennai Super Kings. The 35-year old bowled brilliantly for CSK and was one of MS Dhoni's primary weapons with the ball in at least a couple of seasons.
In 2014, Jakati was picked up by the Royal Challengers Bangalore but got to play just a solitary match in the season. At the IPL 2016 auction, he earned a contract with one of the two new franchises, Gujarat Lions, where he will play under former CSK team-mate, Suresh Raina.
The veteran spinner regularly appears in the line-up for his state side Goa, especially in limited-overs cricket.
