IPL 2021: The much-awaited auction of the Indian Premier League was held last week and the franchises did everything to bolster their squads. While most of the franchises were happy with the purchases they did in the event although there were restrictions.
South Africa’s all-rounder Chris Morris shattered all the past records as he became the most expensive buy of IPL history. The mega event started silently with some of the big names going sold but it picked the pace with all the teams fighting hard to get the desired players.
Out of 292 players, 62 players got the bids in the IPL 2021 Auction, while there were some names that went unsold despite having tremendous records in the other leagues or for their respective national side.
In this article, we will look at the 3 most prominent cricketers who can be drafted in the IPL 2021 tournament midway.
3 Unsold players who can be picked later in the IPL 2021 tournaments
The Aussie limited over skipper, Aaron Finch somehow failed to impress the single IPL franchises think-tank and he went unsold in the recent IPL auctions. Finch who is a regular name in the Indian T20 tournament has failed to find a permanent franchise.
Last year, Finch played for Virat Kohli led RCB and he was preferred for the opening spot. Although there were flashes of his good innings throughout the tournament, however, lack of consistency cost him the place as he was released from the squad one month back.
But the Australian skipper is capable of turning the table at any moment. Finch who has huge experience can be drafted in later in the tournament as franchises might need him.
The English opener was also not picked by the franchises in the recent IPL auction. Last time, the opener represented Delhi Daredevils in IPL and since then he has not featured in the cash-rich league.
While set in the crease he can smash the bowlers for fun and he has shown us that in the past, But his fluency against the spin might be the concern for the management. Roy is not a comfortable batsman against Spin that too in the subcontinent.
The English opener can be a choice for the franchises and can be brought midway through the tournament.
The star of the recent tenth season of the Big Bash League (BBL), Alex Hales was also not picked in the auctions. The right-handed batsman is in supreme form and has the ability to smack the bowlers around the park easily. Despite his runs, he also won the Golden Bat award in the BBL season 10.
The English batsman going unsold was not expected by the cricket pundits. He plays at number 3 for England national team in the ODIs. Hales can be a perfect choice of young flexible talent.
The franchises might opt for him leaving the above two batsmen if they required a solid opener and middle-order batsman.
