The IPL which concluded on Sunday saw many young players getting set in the frame of Team India in the coming days. Young player Abhishek Sharma, who learned cricket from Yuvraj Singh and Brian Lara and batted at the same pace with Travis Head in Hyderabad, impressed even the cricket experts. Many experts also believed that 23-year-old Abhishek could have got a place in the current T-20 team as well. Amritsar's Abhishek Sharma scored 484 runs in 16 matches at a strike rate of 204. Abhishek hit the maximum number of 42 sixes in this season's tournament. However, the runner-up team Hyderabad hit the maximum number of 178 sixes in the tournament.

Former champion Rajasthan's journey in the play-offs was ended by Hyderabad, but Rajasthan's Riyan Parag made a splash. 22 year old Riyan Parag from Assam scored 573 runs in 16 matches at a strike rate of 149. Played 4 half-century innings and proved to be a match winner many times. Experts believed that Riyan Parag can prove to be an important member of the future for Team India. Gujarat team stood at number 8. Could not reach play off.

Before the tournament, Hardik Pandya went from Gujarat to Mumbai and Mohd. Shami's injury hurt Gujarat a lot. But 22 year old Bhardwaj Sai Sudarshan, resident of Chennai, is making his mark. Sai Sudarshan scored 527 runs in 12 matches at a strike rate of 141. Also played 1 century and 2 half-century innings.

Punjab's super finisher, 32-year-old Chhattisgarh batsman Shashank Singh made his mark in this IPL. Shashank came late, came better. Punjab's Shashank Singh scored 354 runs in 14 matches at a strike rate of 165, while Ashutosh Sharma scored 189 runs in 11 matches at a strike rate of 167. These middle order batsmen played the role of super finishers but the Punjab team remained at number 9 and could not reach the play-off.

Team India's international level wicketkeeper batsman Jitesh Sharma from Punjab also managed to leave his impact. Jitesh scored 187 runs at a strike rate of 132. Hit 9 fours and 12 sixes. It also proved that one can do wonders even on a big level.

Amidst all this, a genuine pacer, a star surprised the whole world by bowling at a speed of 156+. The name of this star is Mayank Yadav. Even the commentators were not convinced seeing the stature of Mayank, who hails from his ancestral home in Bihar and plays from Delhi. But by consistently bowling at a speed of 150+, he surprised even Brett Lee, Dale Steyn, Kevin Pietersen, Harbhajan Singh, Irfan Pathan and Mayank Yadav. Many bowlers from all over the world were seen praising him. Due to his speed of 156.7 km/hr and his accurate bowling, Mayank was seen becoming a cause of fear in the world of batsmen. But Mayank could play only 4 matches. Mayank bowled 12.1 overs, took 7 wickets with an economy of 6.98. Lucknow team stood at number 7. Mayank's injury definitely hurt Lucknow and all the Indian fans.
