#1 Siddharth Sirish Desai (U Mumba)
It has never looked like it is the debut season for this player. The 26-year-old Siddharth Desai, with 98 points in seven matches, is one of the biggest contenders for the green sleeve (given to best raider) this season.
He proved the critics wrong that U Mumba are lacking a good raider in their squad this season.
With six super tens in seven matches, not out percentage of 83.59 and 13.85 average raid points per match, this man has been the center of worries for his opponents.
He proved what he is made of on his debut against Puneri Paltan when he scored 15 points in just 23 raids, thereby playing a crucial role for his team to earn a tie. He has totally justified his price tag of 34.4 lakhs.
