Let’s take a look at three 3 lesser-known players RCB should buy in IPL 2020
1. Yashashvi Jaiswal
Is this lad way too young to splashing the cash on him? Maybe yes, but the spark Yashashvi Jaiswal has shown in his first few games as a List A cricketer is worth an investment. For a player as young as he is, Yashashvi has shown great maturity in batting his way out of trouble in dire situations.
In the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy, against a decent quality bowling lineup in Jharkhand, Yashashvi smacked a doubleton, becoming the first teenager and the youngest in List A history to do so. Ever since, his name has been doing the rounds in the city and this could be a great chance for him to garner more limelight with a few more good performances.
Yashashvi Jaiswal could potentially represent the country in the U19 World Cup next year and that could be his career-defining moment. The auction will be conducted well before that and it will be interesting to see if teams spend a lot on him. Having an aggressive Indian opener could always come in handy for any side.
2. Rahul Dalal
Another player who has done exceedingly well in the Vijay Hazare Trophy to garner limelight is Rahul Dalal from Haryana, who represented Arunachal Pradesh this edition. The side did miss out on the quarterfinals by a significant margin, but the 27-year-old played some brilliant knocks against top-quality oppositions, which certainly caught the attention of some franchises.
The right-handed batsman from Faridabad is currently the highest run-scorer of the tournament at the end of the group stages, raking up a brilliant 515 runs in 8 games at an average in excess of 80. His aggressive approach could fit perfectly into the scheme of things for Bangalore and the Chinnaswamy conditions.
3. Baba Aparajith
Tamil Nadu’s Baba Aparajith is having the time of his life in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, performing exceedingly well with the bat and ball. He has been warming the bench with the Chennai Super Kings for a couple of seasons before finding no buyers in the previous edition.
He could be one of the hottest properties in the auction this time and among the other names mentioned in the list, he could cost a little more than expected. With 470 runs in 9 games at an average in excess of 75, he has made his mark among media professionals and a lot of experts reckon he’s ready for the biggest level.
