Mumbai Indians’ youngster Ishan Kishan made a name for himself in the Indian Premier League. But before that, he shot into prominence in the 2016 season after the young Indian team finished as the runners-up in the U19 World Cup in Bangladesh.

In the same year itself, he earned a contract in the now-defunct Gujarat Lions franchise. His journey started with the Suresh Raina-led team and then he jumped to Mumbai Indians in the 2018 season. There was no looking back since then.

His performances helped him break into the Indian cricket team in T20Is. With plenty of potential in his resume, there is no doubt that CSK team management may look to recruit him as captain in the future. For the unversed, Kishan led India U19 and also skippered Jharkhand in the domestic circuit.

3. Suryakumar Yadav

Suryakumar Yadav started to draw the attention of the cricket fans by playing spectacular shots all around the park during his stint at Kolkata Knight Riders. He has a pretty decent experience of leading the team from the front as well. In fact, he led Mumbai in the domestic version and also served as vice-captain of the KKR.

The 30-year-old broke into the Indian team set-up through his sensational performances at Mumbai Indians. The flamboyant batsman is often referred to as Indian AB de Villiers because of his style of batting. He was part of the Mumbai Indians’ set-up that won the IPL titles in the 2019 and 2019 season.

On top of that, he showcased his mettle as an opener and also as a middle-order batsman. If Chennai Super Kings get a chance, they will not hesitate to pick ‘Sky’ and hand him leadership responsibilities. He has played 180 T20 matches where he scored nearly 3,900 runs with 21 fifties to his name.
