The Indian Premier League (IPL) will undergo a drastic change next year when the mega auction will take place. With multiple new faces, the teams might be looking to become stronger and improve in certain areas. Adding on, we might also witness the change in the fortunes of few teams.
Teams that are struggling currently, can make subtle changes too. IPL is all about providing the perfect platform for the players to showcase their skills. The most perfect example is of Rohit Sharma, who, since 2013, has been showing his captaincy skills.
Under his leadership, MI has won five IPL titles so far. Well, this caught the attention of the team management and now, he is the vice-captain of the national team.
The standards of the IPL have helped Team India and other national teams to grow. Well, multiple superstars have the potential to lead their teams.
Let us have a look at 5 overseas stars who can be signed as the captains of their respective teams in the IPL mega auction:
1. Pat Cummins
Injuries had hampered Pat Cummins’s career initially. During his debut, he played a match-winning role at the Wanderers against South Africa. But, later on, he was not able to get back into the team due to injuries. However, his determination has made him the best bowler in the world as per the Test rankings.
Cummins is the current vice-captain of the Australian cricket team. In 30 T20Is, he has picked 37 wickets. He also has a superb economy rate of 6.94 in the T20 format. Adding on, he is a handy batsman down the order.
In the IPL, he has an economy rate of 8.24, which is decent for someone who bowls in the powerplay and at the death. But, if any team needs a captain, Pat is a good choice. He has the experience, can set up good fields, and can inspire the team with his bowling performance. Pat can nurture emerging fast bowlers as well.
