With an enthralling conclusion to the U19 Cricket World Cup last week, the focus is completely on the mega auction that is set to take place next week, and also India hosting West Indies in a three-match ODI series followed by a three-match T20I series.

However, today we will discuss some of the best-uncapped prospects that could fetch big earnings in the 2022 IPL mega auction.

Sai Kishore (India)

Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, the 25-year-old bowler from Tamil Nadu is one of the contenders to bag a handsome deal after his performances recently. A talented youngster with the potential to make it very big, Sai Kishore made his domestic debut in 2017.

A handy slow left-arm orthodox spinner has 145 wickets in 88 matches that include first-class games, list A and domestic T20s. He is also selected as a standby in the ongoing series against West Indies.

Let's have a look at his stats

Rahul Tripathi (India)

Another less renowned Ranchi-born cricketer, undoubtedly the best of the list, Tripathi is among the proven IPL players who has not played too many games but done enough to prove his worth to the world.

Tripathi was brilliant when he played for MS Dhoni's Rising Pune Supergiants and that earned him a spot in Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders as well. A versatile player who can play at any position, Tripathi was one of the best batsmen for Kolkata in the previous season and he played many vital knocks for his side.

With the Indian not being a part of any IPL franchise, it will be intriguing to see which team bids for the 30-year-old. Let's have a look at his numbers.

A Proteas star in the making, Dewald Brevis had a fantastic U19 World Cup but unfortunately, he was the lone warrior fighting and doing everything he could for his side.

Scoring 506 runs in just 6 matches, Brevis was exceptional in the entire tournament and that makes him an ideal candidate to become a part of any IPL side. Let's have a look at his numbers in the U19 Cricket World Cup.

Raj Bawa (India)

Another star and we can now say a World Cup winner, Raj Bawa was exquisite throughout the World Cup. He was India's second-highest run-getter but his bowling in the final of the competition played an enormous role in India's triumph.

Even with the bat, India were struggling in the beginning but Bawa stood strong and his partnership with Nishant Sindhu was significant in aiding India to victory.

Bawa picked 5/31 in 9.5 overs, dismantling half of the England side. He also battled with courage and that signifies his skill to perform and deliver in the IPL. What do you think? Which IPL team would go for him?

Let's have a look at his numbers.

MatchesRunsAverage100/50 Highest Score 
6252631/0162

His highest of 162 was also the highest score of the tournament.

Yash Thakur (India)

Another bowler on the list who has immense talent. Yash Thakur, the 23-year-old is a player who could be a perfect asset for a franchise that needs an effective bowler in the middle overs.

Thakur made his List A debut in 2017 and his first-class debut in 2018. Bowling becomes a huge concern for a lot of teams and even the best of players tend to leak runs. However, Thakur has the knack of picking crucial wickets, something that teams would be eyeing. Can Thakur become the highest-paid player from this list?

Here are his numbers.
