1. Eoin Morgan
He is a fabulous player and is a cool captain. The only team that are in need of this player is Kings XI Punjab.
They haven’t had a permanent captain in the history of IPL. George Bailey was the only successful captain that took them to the finals.
Eoin Morgan is excellent captain in shorter format of the game. England won their 1st worldcup under his captaincy. So, KXIP will surely buy him and he might come at a cheap price too.
That’s because no other team is in need of overseas captain.
2. Mitchell Starc
RCB team always rely on V.K and AB to win the matches. In rare cases, players like Hetmyer,Ali and Stoinis win them matches.
However, the fact is that they never expect their bowlers to win them matches because their bowling lineup is the worst among 8 teams.
With Umesh and Siraj, RCB even can’t be relieved while defending 200+ scores.
Thus, A proper bowling leader is what they desperately need. Statc is exceptional on powerplay as well as in slog overs.
Someone like Saini can flourish if he is accompanied by the World class bowler Mitchell Starc.RCB will go all out to get him in their team.
Mike Hesson recently said that they won’t buy players who performed brilliantly in particular matches rather they will rope consistent players who can deliver week in and week out.
This all points toward the fact that RCB will bid heavily on Mitchell Starc.
3. Glenn Maxwell
He is a tricky player to bid on for evey team. Every team knows he is a match winner but no one will go all out to buy him. We saw the pressure of price tag in him when DC bought him at 9cr in 2018.
RCB, MI,KXIP and even DC are the teams that will be interested to rope Maxwell in their squad.
He can turn the match around single handedly with his allround ability in his day. So, he will be the sought out player for these teams.
4. Pat Cummins
Another team that lacks a quality pacer is Kolkota Knight Riders. They too had a horrible season as Kuldeep was out of form. Harry Gurney and Ferguson, both were expensive in death overs.
To improve their pace lineup, they will look to buy their former player, Pat Cummins. He is in a terrific form right now. So, KKR will surely bid for him.
Also they too will bid for Mitchell Starc as well.
5. Jason Roy
KXIP lacks a quality opener to accompany KL Rahul. Gayle has past his prime and they need to look for the future.
Jason Roy, consistent performer of the World Cup for England, is a man KXIP must target. Eventhough he has bad records in IPL in the past, he is in the peak stage of his carrer. Rahul and Jason Roy will make a fearsome opening duos in the IPL.
