17y, 11d – Mujeeb Ur Rahman (PBKS vs DC, 2018)

At the young age of just 17 years and 11 days, Afghanistan’s Mujeeb ur Rahman became the youngest overseas debutant in IPL history in the 2018 season. He also holds the distinction of being the youngest in IPL to make a debut (international or local).

Representing Punjab Kings, he made his debut against Delhi Daredevils. The 17-year-old mystery spinner back then bagged two wickets for 25 runs and also defended 16 in the last over to help his team win by four runs.

17y, 283d – Sandeep Lamichhane (DC vs RCB, 2018)

After Mujeeb, Nepal’s Sandeep Lamicchane is next on the list when it comes to the youngest overseas players to make their IPL debut. Ageing 17 years and 283 days, the former skipper of the Nepal Cricket team represented Delhi Daredevils on his debut day.

Fronting the Royal Challengers Bangalore, he managed one wicket for 25 runs. Back then, he also became the first Nepalese cricketer to take part in IPL.

17y, 354d – Kwena Maphaka (MI vs SRH, 2024)

Kwena Maphaka, the South African bowler is representing the Mumbai Indians in the ongoing IPL 2024. In a match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kwena, aged 17 years and 354 days, became the third youngest overseas debutant to make an IPL debut.

However, he could not make an impact. The Johannesburg-born contained 66 runs at a horrendous economy rate of 16.50 and managed no wickets. It remains to be seen how the youngster will do in the remaining MI matches.

18y, 103d – Noor Ahmad (GT vs RR, 2023)
