Riyan Parag

Riyan Parag has truly lived up to the expectations of his team this season. Representing Assam, he’s made a mark with two fifties and has climbed into the top-five run-scorers. With an impressive average of 92 and a strike rate of 158 from his initial four matches, his stats speak volumes. However, it’s not just about the numbers; it’s the crucial times at which he’s made those runs that have turned him into a reliable asset in the Rajasthan Royals’ batting brigade.


Mayank Yadav

Mayank Yadav, the fast-bowling prodigy from West Delhi, made an explosive entry into the Indian cricket scene with Lucknow Super Giants. On his debut against Punjab Kings, he stunned everyone by hitting speeds over 150 kmph not once, but nine times out of 24 balls bowled.

His performance didn’t just end with speed; he claimed impressive figures of 3/127, significantly slowing down Punjab’s attempt to chase down a target of 200. Mayank didn’t stop there; he kept the speed guns working overtime and bowled the fastest delivery of IPL 2024 at a blazing 156.7 kmph in a match against Royal Challengers Bengaluru, where he also took three wickets. His pace has quickly become one of the most talked-about aspects of this IPL season.


Ashutosh Sharma

Ashutosh Sharma has teamed up with Shashank Singh to lead some thrilling chases for Punjab Kings. Together, they hunted down a massive total of 200 against the Titans, pulling the team up from a shaky 111/5. In another nail-biter against Hyderabad, they nearly grabbed a win from a tough spot at 114/6, chasing 182.

Ashutosh, known for hitting the quickest hundred in Indian cricket off just 11 balls against Arunachal Pradesh while with Railways, brought his explosive play to the Punjab Kings. Coming in as an impact player against the Titans, he knocked a quick 17-ball 31, pushing his team towards the win. In the following game, he dominated Jaydev Unadkat with three massive sixes, racing to an unbeaten 33 from 15 balls. Despite his heroics, the team missed out on victory by a mere two runs.


Yash Thakur

Yash Thakur has stepped up for his team when they needed him most. After Mayank Yadav left the field with an injury after just one over, Thakur grabbed the spotlight against the Titans. This Vidarbha all-rounder displayed impressive bowling, claiming the first five-wicket haul of IPL 2024. His outstanding performance was key in helping Lucknow defend a total of 163.

So far in the tournament, Thakur has taken six wickets across three matches. But his talent isn’t limited to just bowling; he’s also a capable batter. Given the opportunity, he could make an impact with the bat as well.
