The T20 cricket league is underway, with Rajasthan Royals leading the pack. The first week has featured a century by Brendon McCullum and spectacular catches, with nail-biting finishes. The league,over the years has been a hotbed for the development of younger players such as Sanju Samson, Mandeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah to name a few. While the seasoned players such as Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Ricky Pointing are all coaches or mentors for their respective teams.

7. Kings XI Punjab
Never scored good marks, but due to years of toiling hard, he is now making his place amongst the elite.
8. Kolkata Knight Riders
The most extravagant of the lot, he is vibrant and positive. A fierce competitor, but lacks focus at times.
