Kamlesh Nagarkoti was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders for Rs. 3.2 crores. Born on 28 December 1999, Nagarkoti came into limelight during the Under-19 Cricket World Cup in January 2018, which India won. Clocking regularly in excess of 140kph. His athleticism and ability to bowl long spells makes him a captain's dream. His lightning sharp reflexes at backward point, coupled with his hitting ability lower down the batting order, makes him an all-round asset. Nagarkoti will be the one to look out for in the upcoming IPL 2018.

As an opener, Prithvi Shaw's stroke-play and footwork had many calling him a prodigy.

He captained the U-19 World Cup winning squad in 2018 and was bought by Delhi Daredevils for a price of Rs. 1.2 crore.

He made his first-class debut before that, for Punjab in the Ranji Trophy in late 2017 with a half-century in the game and an attacking 129 in the next match. Shubhman was picked up by Kolkata Knight Riders for Rs. 1.8 crore.

Manjot Kalra hails from the same North Delhi academy as Unmukt Chand and in his early days wasn't keen on considering cricket as a full-time career option. Things took a turn when he did well for the Delhi U16 side. Kalra, a right-handed opening batsman, didn't have it easy though. Manjot Kalra's claim to fame is his match-winning 101* against Australia in the 2018 ICC U19 World Cup final in New Zealand, an effort that gave India its record fourth title win. He was bought by Delhi Daredevils for a price of Rs. 20 lakh.
