Former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar named the no cap player who impressed him the most at the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. For him, the standout player was Rajasthan Royals (RR) young batsman Yashasvi Jaiwsal and according to him, he is a special player.
IPL 2023 was all about youngsters setting the stage on fire and veterans making a remarkable comeback. Both the youngsters and the veterans were impressive in their own way, but their goal was the same and it was to make their team win. To some extent they did that and that’s why it was the best season in the league.

Yashasvi Jaiswal even did great as Jos Buttler, and Sanju Samson was ordinary in front of him as that was his class this time. The lefty broke the league’s record for fastest fifty by achieving the milestone in just 13 balls this season.
