A huge fan of Adam Gilchrist's explosive style of batting, Mahipal Lomror is a similar left-hander who loves to play his shots without fearing about the situation or opposition bowlers. Although Lomror started out as a specialist batsman, he slowly developed into a handy all-rounder who could bowl efficient left-arm spin. It was the 2016 U19 World Cup that gathered recognition for the young man as he stifled batsmen with his slow bowling while also producing some valuable cameos towards the end of the innings.
Like most U19 stars these days, Lomror also landed an IPL contract as the Delhi Daredevils signed him up although he didn't get a game for them at all and got picked up by the Rajasthan Royals in 2018. Blessed with oodles of talent and strong leadership qualities, Lomror is definitely an exciting talent that Indian cricket needs to nurture with care.
IPL through the years
Mahipal Lomror grabbed headlines during the U19 World Cup in 2016 due to his effective left-arm spin but he was actually a pure batsman initially before converting into a batting all-rounder. He was picked up by the Royals at the 2018 auctions and also featured in a couple of games that season without really getting ample scope to showcase either of his skills. Lomror has been a consistent former in the domestic circuit since his debut and revels in the shorter formats particularly. At his best, he is a dashing southpaw capable of batting in the middle order and his bowling is more than effective. Lomror is also a gun fielder who is much more mobile than you think him to be.
