Mumbai Indians (MI) are crowned as the champions of the IPL 2020. They become the second team to defend their title after Chennai Super Kings (CSK) did it in 2011 successfully. Apart from their international stars, the youngsters like Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, and Rahul Chahar played a key role in MI retaining the title.
Similar to the champions, youngsters from other teams as well have risen to the occasion. The IPL provided them with a perfect platform to display their skill and talent in front of the world.
5 Players Who Have Impressed The Most In IPL 2020:
Ishan Kishan always had the potential – he was after all India’s Under-19 captain in recent times – but this season he converted it to runs and match-winning knocks. Replacing the injured Saurabh Tiwary in the team, Kishan didn’t put a foot wrong. The left-hander ended the season as Mumbai’s highest scorer amassing 516 runs at an average of 57 and a strike rate of 145 with four half-centuries.
When Rohit Sharma got injured, the youngster opened the innings — and tore apart the opposition bowling attack. The 22-year-old also played the floater role in the middle-order with ease. Kishan’s audacity to play risky shots and the ability to clear the fence with ease has been the highlight of the youngster’s season. He hit 30 sixes in the tournament – the most by any batsman in IPL 2020.
