5. SHREYAS IYER (INDIA)
The promising right hander youngster who hails from Mumbai came into the limelight on back of some brilliant performances in his maiden Ranji season in which he was the top run scorer for his state side. In the 2015 IPL auction, he was purchased by the Delhi Daredevils franchisee for 26 times his actual base price of 10 lakhs at a whopping 2.6 cores. With his consistency, temperament and gnarling ability to soak up pressure up front, he seems to be the future of the Indian cricket. His exemplary knock of 70* against the potent seam attack of Chennai Super Kings on a green top at Raipur in what was a low scoring match deserves a special mention. In this edition of the IPL, he shot to fame with his appetite for runs. The young lad has scored 439 runs at a decent strike rate of 128 and at an average of 33. He has four half-centuries to his name. He is ranked 5th in the list.
