While Umran made a name for himself with his express pace, sharp bouncers and yorkers at SRH (21 wickets till Sunday), Arshdeep, the 2018 U-19 World Cup winner, has been the standout performer (10 scalps at 7.7 RPO) for PBKS Comeback men As expected, Dinesh Karthik and Hardik Pandya made their way back to the team after some impressive performances in the ongoing IPL.
