The 16th edition of IPL is moving to its last stage. Out of 70 league matches, 56 matches have been played so far. Lots of players have performed well with the ball and bat. But the performances of some younger players have left a different impression. IPL gives younger players a chance to compete against the best players in the world. Those who performed well are awarded with “Emerging Player Of the Season.” Along with the award, the player also gets Rs 20 lakh. Let us look at the top three players who could grab the Emerging Player Award in IPL 2023.
