IPL Auction 2018: How often do you see a 18-year-old Indian fast bowler clocking the speed of over 140 kmph on a consistent basis! Well, this might be soon become a familiar sight in IPL 2018, with Jaipur’s Kamlesh Nagarkoti set to take the field. The 18-year-old Rajasthan boy who is a part of the Indian cricket team for the ongoing ICC Under 19 World Cup was bought by KKR a whopping Rs 3.6 crore in IPL auction 2018. Known for his extreme pace, Nagarkoti face came into limelight with his impressive spell against Australia in India’s first game during the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2018. In this match, Nagarkoti bowled at 146kmph, which castled Aussie batsman Sutherland, leaving his off-stump in a mess.

The ball was noticed by some of the Indian legends, including Virender Sehwag who took to Twitter to praise Kamlesh Nagarkoti. That was the first sign that Kamlesh Nagarkoti will be in high demand in IPL auction 2018 and it turned out exactly like that. There was a time when Indian fans would fancy anyone who would manage to reach the 140-kmph mark. But when the Indian bowling duo of Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti outpaced their rivals and consistently clocked speeds above 145 kmph at Bay Oval, New Zealand, it was not something that one gets to see very often.
