In the last 11 years, the IPL has seen some quality players make a mark. <p></p> <p></p>With less than a week left for this year's league to start, it will once again be interesting to see which players rise to the challenge against the best in the business. <p></p> <p></p>IANS takes a look at five spinners who are expected to make a mark this season: <p></p> <p></p><strong><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/Varun-Chakravarthy">Varun Chakravarthy</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>All eyes will be on this mystery spinner as <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/Kings-XI-Punjab">Kings XI Punjab</a> bagged him in the auction in Jaipur for a whopping Rs 8.4 crore - 42 times his base price of Rs 20 lakh. <p></p> <p></p>Playing for Tamil Nadu, Varun bagged 22 wickets in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. He has six variations in his kitty: off-break, leg-break, flipper, top-spinner, carrom ball and the googly. <p></p> <p></p>The 27-year-old shot into limelight in the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2018, scalping nine wickets from 10 matches, with a decent economy rate of 4.7. Looking at his record, Varun is expected to give batsmen a difficult time. <p></p> <p></p><strong><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/Mujeeb-ur-Rahman">Mujeeb ur Rahman</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Apart from Varun, KXIP have another mystery spinner in Mujeeb ur Rahman. The Afghan spinner had a dream debut season in IPL 2018, bagging 14 wickets in the 11 matches he played. The right arm off-break bowler bowled with an average of 20.64 and an economy rate of just under seven. <p></p> <p></p>Rahman also bowls some unbelievable googlies and under the guidance of his skipper Ravichandran Ashwin, who is an experienced off-spinner himself, the Afghan bowler is expected to only get better with every outing. <p></p> <p></p><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/kuldeep-yadav/"><strong>Kuldeep Yadav</strong></a> <p></p> <p></p>He has been a part of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/kolkata-knight-riders">Kolkata Knight Riders</a> (KKR) and the national team for a while, but reading Kuldeep Yadav is a difficult task even now. <p></p> <p></p>The chinaman bowler, retained by the Knights, was one of their best bowlers, picking 18 wickets from 16 games. But the management would want Kuldeep to keep things a little tighter as he was slightly expensive with an economy of 8.14.

He had a good start to the league in 2017 and had scalped 8 wickets from 11 games, with a decent economy of 6.16.

Sundar will look to leave it behind and start afresh in this year's league. <p></p> <p></p>RCB have shown faith in the youngster and picked him for Rs 3.20 crore in the auctions, and Sundar will surely look to perform to the expectations of the franchise. <p></p> <p></p><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/mahipal-lomror" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Mahipal Lomror</a> <p></p> <p></p>Another name to watch out for will be <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/rajasthan-royals">Rajasthan Royals</a>' Mahipal Lomror. <p></p> <p></p>Little known in the cricketing world before now, Lomror gained recognition based on his performances in India's Under-19 campaign during the World Cup in 2016. In the six games, Lomror scalped seven wickets with an impressive economy of 3.74. <p></p> <p></p>The 19-year-old didn't get much chance to showcase his talent in IPL after featuring in just two games for the Royals last year. <p></p> <p></p>However, given his record, Lomror will definitely be a spinner to watch out for. With the players having little knowledge about Lomror, the young spinner can certainly use the surprise element to his advantage.
