Jagadeesan after his debut he proved his capacity as the middle order batsman in the csk squad , if he has enough game time in this IPL he will shine well and will be useful for next year IPL .
Sanjay Yadav a batting allrounder was one more talent in the squad of Sunrisers Hyderabad also a slow left arm bowler if SRH want to strengthen their lower order with allrounder there may be chance he may crack into playing XI.
Siddharth Manimaran , left arm leg spinner , his performance in TNPL & Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy made him to represent the Kolkata knight Riders and there are chances that KKR Captain DK will get him a chance ahead of Kuldeep Yadav if he fails to perform to his capability.
