Irfan Pathan

As the Indian Premier League (IPL) gears up for another exhilarating season, former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan shares his wishlist for IPL 2024. Let’s dive into the exciting prospects and potential game-changers:

In the annals of IPL history, Virat Kohli stands tall. His 973 runs in the 2016 season remain unmatched. Can he replicate that magic? Irfan hopes to witness Kohli’s second-best season, where the RCB skipper unleashes his cover drives and leads from the front.

Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai Indians’ captain, has a special connection with the IPL. His best season came in 2013 when he scored 538 runs. But what if this year surpasses that? Picture Rohit’s majestic sixes and elegant strokes—setting new records and guiding MI to their sixth title.

Irfan Pathan opens up on young Indian Talents who are destined for greatness in IPL 2024

The IPL thrives on young talents. Riyan Parag (Rajasthan Royals) and Abdul Samad (Sunrisers Hyderabad) have already shown glimpses of brilliance. Irfan hopes they announce their arrival with impactful performances. Parag’s audacity and Samad’s power-hitting could light up the tournament.

This season, let’s witness their breakthrough performances. Parag’s audacious strokeplay and Samad’s power-hitting could light up the tournament. Remember their names; they’re the future.

Every season introduces fresh faces, and Kumar Kushagra (Chennai Super Kings) is one to watch. The young wicketkeeper-batsman has impressed in domestic cricket. Can he seamlessly transition to the IPL stage? A positive impact—be it with the gloves or the bat—would make him a household name.

In white-ball cricket, comebacks are as thrilling as last-over finishes. Which bowler will rise from the shadows and reclaim a spot in the Indian team? Will it be Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has battled injuries but remains a swing wizard? Or perhaps Jaydev Unadkat, who has consistently performed in the domestic circuit? Their resurgence would add intrigue to the IPL.
