5 All-Rounders who can start bidding wars in the IPL Auction 2020

The IPL is also known as Indian Premiere League auction is all set to take place in 19th December, 2019 in Kolkata. The auction has seen some of the fierce bidding wars over these years. Sometimes, people have seen some of the rookie players who simply take away the substantial amounts while there have been times when marquee players have gone unsold. This year, each and every IPL fans are going to witness bidding wars for a few players.

Top 5 All-Rounders can start Bidding Wars in IPL 2020

Sam Curran (England)

One of the youngest players, Sam Curran has excelled the cricketing charts at a rapid rate in the past year or so by his amazing bowling style. He has grabbed the attention of team owners when he grabbed 10 wickets in the 9 matches in which he featured, picking up the brilliant hat-trick against Delhi Capitals. As IPL demands for amazing pacers, Sam Curran can be the name in almost every owner’s list.

Glenn Maxwell (Australia)

Because of his power hitting ability and fielding skill, Maxwell had been one of the popular names in the IPL history. Maxwell has made himself available for the IPL 2020 auction at a base price of Rs. 2 crores. The right-hander batsman, who had taken the indefinite break away from the game, took part in training along with Victoria squad at the Melbourne Cricket Ground recently. Maxwell was last seen in the IPL 2018. He also has opted out of the IPL 2019 Auction after being released. The Australian all-rounder is considered for his big-hitting prowess and has the aptitude to change the game instantly. Franchises would surely want to rope in the explosive batsman to strengthen their middle order.

Ben Cutting (Australia)

After becoming extremely popular for his quickfire batting at the death for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2016 final which eventually his side won, Cutting became the talk of the town and grabbed the attention of the Mumbai think tank. As he has the ability to strike hit in the slog overs, he can be one of the first choices of team owners. Ben also has a very good fielding agility too.

Chris Jordan (England)

This English bowler is considered as one of the popular names in the IPL auction. He has actually played almost all the T20 International matches for his country since the 2016 World T20 which took place in India. Keeping his hard-hitting batting and terrific bowling ability in mind, team owners are quite interested in taking him in their team. The Englishman is probably to be one of the most sought after all-rounders in the upcoming IPL player auction.

James Neesham (New Zealand)

This New Zealand batsman has also proved himself again and again by his power hitting batting. This left-handed batsman was the third-highest run-scorer for his team with 232 runs under his belt. With some brilliant all-rounder performances, he can get a place in MI or KKR in 2020 IPL.

Tom Banton is also one of the popular names. The wicketkeeper-batsman has smashed one century and four half-centuries in his short T20 career at a strike rate of 154.30. He has also showcased his ability behind the stumps by taking six crucial catches and three stumpings. Franchises will surely look to rope in the Englishman to strengthen their squads and this has been simply believed that CSK and MI are favourites to procure his services.

When you talk about all-rounders, you cannot skip the name Eoin Morgan. He was the second-highest run-scorer for England in the recently played T20I series against New Zealand, scoring 192 runs in 5 games at a strike rate of 193.93. He has also carried his form to the Abu Dhabi T10 league as well, where he struck this at a rate of 186.17 per 100 balls. The 2019 World Cup winning captain has gone absolutely unsold on multiple occasions and that is extremely surprising as he is one of the cleanest strikers of the ball at the moment. After his current feats in the shortest format, the southpaw could start a bidding war. Each and every franchise would love to take him in their team because of his game changing ability.
