11. SANDDEP SHARMA (KXIP)
One of the budding talents in the realms of Indian cricket, Sandeep Sharma has blossomed into a fine seambowler while playing for the Kings XI Punjab. He made his international debut on the tour to Zimbabwe last year but is unlucky to miss out on a spot in the national team this time around. The 23-year old seam bowler from Punjab shot to prominence after he picked up 12 wickets for the triumphant Indian team in the ICC Under-19 World Cup in 2010. With 15 scalps from 14 games at an average of 24.40 and an economy rate of 7.61, Sandeep showed his prowess as a prudent swing bowler this season. For a team faced with a litany of problems, the right arm pacer’s ascendancy was one of few positives in their campaign. His best figures of 2/11 in IPL 9 came against Mumbai Indians in Visakhapatnam and he features in the 8th position on the list of the highest wicket takers of the tournament.
