IPL 2021: 3 Teams that can pick Dom Bess in IPL 2021 auctions.
Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021: With the opener of the Test series against England, IPL will find many of the picks who could be chosen on the basis of recent form. English spinner Dom Bess is one of them.
Bess has started his India tour on a good note. After contributing a good 34 runs with the bat, Bess has till now scalped 4 crucial wickets. Indian skipper Virat Kohli was picked by Bess during the third day of the first test match.
Till now, Bess in his 23 overs has scalped 4 wickets by giving away just 55 runs. He has bowled with the lowest economy rate amongst the English specialist bowlers i.e., 2040.
If Bess finishes the India series with some good spells, he can be the one who can set the auction on fire and cause the bidding war between the franchises.
In this article, we will discuss about the 3 IPL teams that can pick Dom Bess into their arsenal in the coming IPL 2021 auctions.
3 Teams that can pick Dom Bess in IPL 2021 auctions:
Mumbai Indians (MI):
Even though the spin duo of Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya will not open the gate for Dom Bess to play the game. However, Mumbai Indians do not have any good spinner backup for Rahul Chahar. Dom Bess could provide the backup and in the spin-friendly pitches can perform for the five-times champion.
MI is always known for their choosy selections and they are quite successful in that. If they include Bess in their squad, MI will again become the favourites to defend their title and make history by winning three IPL trophies on the trot.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK):
After releasing the senior spinners ahead of the IPL 2021 auctions, CSK will need someone to fill the voids. Harbhajan Singh and Piyush Chawla are now released and someone who is of their calibre and talented will have to step in.
To will the slots, CSK will pick some good foreign players. Dom Bess could be one to fill the spinner slot. Having seen the performance on CSK’s home ground, Dom Bess will be crucial for the three-time winners.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR):
In their backyard, Eden Gardens, KKR will need the services of the spinners. With the likes of Kuldeep Yadav, Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy the squad becomes very much capable to rotate their spin options.
However, Kuldeep Yadav is getting dropped from the squad and it is unlikely that the franchise will go with him as they have Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine.
KKR might opt for Dom Bess as their backyard needs better spinners and in case Sunil Narine doesn’t work for them, they can choose the services of Dom Bess.
