Siddarth Kaul
(Indian Cricketer)

The slide of the turf celebration after winning the 2008 U-19 World Cup is something that instantly comes to mind when you think about Punjab speedster Siddarth Kaul. With ten wickets in five games, Kaul emerged as the leading wicket-taker along with Ravindra Jadeja.

A host of injuries derailed his charge at the first-class and it was not until 2012 that he made his return to spearhead the Punjab bowling attack. He was picked up by the Delhi Daredevils for the 2103 and 2014 season but his real break came with the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Largely overshadowed by Bhuvneshar Kumar, Kaul developed a plethora of skills including the knuckleball to spearhead the bowling line-up in the 2018 season and emerged as the joint-highest wicket-taker.
