Today we have for you, the youngest cricketers in IPL 2020. Indian Premier League (IPL) is the brightest stage for young talents both in domestic as well as the International sphere of cricket. Many eminent players in world cricket have had their humble beginnings in the IPL.
The list includes the bludgeoning Brendon McCullum who set the inaugural IPL match on fire with his blazing 158*, Sunil Narine who has over the years become one of the finest ever T20 bowlers owing to the success he has had in the format and this tournament specifically, a young Ravindra Jadeja on whom Shane Warne imposed faith and a player who would later emerge as one of the finest cricketing talents in the modern game.
This edition of the IPL too has its fair share of youngsters who are sure to entertain the fans and carve out a place for themselves in their respective national setup. The following is a list of the top 5 youngest players in IPL 2020.
5. Kamlesh Nagarkoti (Kolkata Knight Riders) 20 years
Kamlesh was one of those youths on whom KKR invested the previous season. However, owing to a critical injury, Nagarkoti was unable to feature in a single match. However, this time around he has regained full fitness and is expected to come out all guns blazing along with his compatriots Shivam Mavi and Prasidh Krishna.
The ability of Kamlesh that separates him from the pack is the consistent 145kmph plus pace that he generates, something that is sure to be uncomfortable for the most well-settled batsmen as well. Among the youngest cricketers in IPL 2020.

4. Prithvi Shaw (Delhi Capitals) 20 years
There have been few players in India who have had so much hype as Prithvi Shaw. And when the world saw him bat for the first time last year, it was quite evident why the hype has persisted this year as well. A player with an abundance of natural free-flowing batting ability, Prithvi is a glorious player to watch, an absolute feast to the eyes.
However, it has been his consistency level that has pegged him back somewhat. Shaw would want to prove this time around why he should be an automatic choice for India in the opening position across all formats of the game. Among the youngest cricketers in IPL 2020.
3. Ravi Bishnoi (Kings XI Punjab) 20 years
One of the most talented leg spinners to have come up from the Indian domestic set up, Ravi is a true champion in the making in his craft of spin bowling. He has all the weapons in his arsenal, something that makes him a truly classical wrist-spinner with a potent googly.
With 10 wickets in the 2019 Under 19 campaign, Bishnoi was an absolute class act. With no Ravichandran Ashwin in the King’s XI scheme of things this time around, Bishnoi would get a chance to prove his mettle. Among the youngest cricketers in IPL 2020.
2. Abdul Samad (Sunrisers Hyderabad) 18 years
Another player coming to the IPL with a lot of promise, Samad is an explosive middle-order batsman who can strike sixes at will. He is one of those very few players who have represented an IPL team from the war-torn regions of Jammu and Kashmir. His batting talents would be put to use in a Sunriser’s middle order that looks wobbly from the offset. If he can cement his place in the side, he can try for an India berth in the future.
