IPL 2021: 3 Teams that can pick S Sreesanth for the IPL 2021.
Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021: Its been almost 8-9 years before we saw S Sreesanth bowling in the IPL and international cricket. The pacer was booked in the spot-fixing case in the IPL and was handed the ban by the BCCI after confirming the case. While Sreesanth has completed his ban and is back to the cricket.
Sreesanth is currently playing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2021 for Kerala. The pacer is expecting to make a strong comeback after 8 long years in international cricket. The road is not easy for the 37-year-old pacer but it is not impossible.
Sreesanth will right now target IPL for his comeback and will be hoping to be picked by any of the franchise in the IPL 2021 mini-auctions.
Here we will discuss 3 teams that can pick S Sreesanth for the IPL 2021.
3 Teams that can pick S Sreesanth in IPL 2021:
Kings XI Punjab:
Kings XI Punjab can be the franchise that might pick S Sreesanth in the IPL 2021 mini-auctions. KL Rahul led side had a bumpy season last time and their lack of death bowling threatened them. Despite putting a lot of runs on board, Kings failed to get the victory. Their death bowling is an issue and surely the management knows it.
S Sreesanth will be a good option for the Kings as they head to the IPL 2021. Their batting is solid and an experienced bowler alongside Mohammad Shami can fulfil their dreams.
Sreesanth had earlier featured for Kings XI Punjab and will be happy to provide them with his services.
Despite being one of the best overseas players in the arsenal, Rajasthan Royals slipped and ended last in the points table last season. With the franchise releasing Varun Arron from the team, one domestic pacer has a slot to fill. S Sreesanth will be an exciting choice for the inaugural champions.
Sreesanth was with the Rajasthan Royals when he was handed a ban and the team also suffered a ban for two years. This will be an interesting call for Royals as they retain their former pacer in the IPL 2021 mini-auctions.
Chennai Super Kings:
The three times title winners had a humiliating season last time when they appeared in the park. CSK failed to qualify for the playoffs and this was the first instance. CSK suffered an embarrassment as their core players were found on the wrong side of the ’30s.
With a couple of senior players bidding adieu to the franchise, S Sreesanth can make it to the side. MS Dhoni-led CSK will be the team that will be excited to draft in S Sreesanth. The pacer can swing the ball both ways and can be handy in the opening overs.
He can be a backup for Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur if they get injured.
