8. Sarfaraz Khan
The 17 year old Mumbaikar became a hot news in the media and an overnight hero when he amassed scintillating knock of 45 in only 21 deliveries against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in IPL 8. The Indian test skipper, Virat Kohli was so impressed with the boy that he folded his hands (Namaste) and bowed to Sarfaraz after his innings. Although in 2009, the boy had hogged the limelight when he broke the record for highest score of Sachin Tendulkar in a Haris Sheffield Shield match. He piled up a mammoth innings of 439 runs, then. The baby faced boy with street fighter looks also represented the India side in 2014 Under-19 World Cup and scored 211 runs in six innings at a staggering average of 70 and an implausible strike rate of 105.
