IPL 2024: Yash Thakur becomes the 5th uncapped player to take a 5-wicket haul in IPL

IPL 2024: Yash Thakur becomes the 5th uncapped player to take a 5-wicket haul in IPL

Let's have a look at five uncapped Indian bowlers who have taken five wickets.

In the recently held match against GT, LSG’s emerging pacer, Yash Thakur, took five wickets. In T20 cricket, it is almost rare to witness a 5-wicket haul, and why not? It is a fact that T20 is mainly a batting-friendly format. When it comes to the IPL, which usually witnesses a lot of high scores, bowling performances are often sidelined.

However, apart from high scores, the IPL witnesses one more thing, and that is the performances of emerging bowlers. Since everyone knows batters win the games but bowlers give you the tournament, let’s have a look at five uncapped Indian bowlers who have taken five wickets.

Apart from Yash Thakur, a few other uncapped Indian players, such as MI’s Akash Madhwal, have also taken a 5-wicket haul against Lucknow Super Giant in 2023. As mentioned earlier, the T20 format is more inclined towards batting. In this scenario, witnessing bowling performances like this is nothing short of a treat.
