The 2019 World Cup played a big role in the IPL auctions for the 2019 season. Players’ availability and their workload needed to be managed carefully. Hence, that influenced the teams in their strategies quite a bit. However, it won’t be the case this time around.

Most players will likely be available for the major part, if not the entire season. Hence, the strategies, decision-making and selections will be different as well. There are multiple cricketers around having been megastars for their respective sides. These have the ability to attract high and expensive bids. Not only that, but these can also get bids from a lot of teams.

We take a look at 5 players who have the ability to attract bids from all 8 teams in IPL 2020 Auction

For the first time since 2015, Mitchell Starc is likely to be available for the IPL. The Australian left-armer has played just two seasons which came back in 2014 and 2015. Since then, injuries have played a massive role in him missing the last four years of the IPL.

Starc has established himself as one of the best death bowlers in white-ball cricket. His ability to churn out yorkers at will make him a real threat. He can also make the new-ball talk. The left-arm fast bowler has also been in good form in the shorter formats. For the second successive time, he finished the World Cup as the leading wicket-taker. Starc was too hot to handle.

Hence, there is no doubt that Starc will be a big hit in the IPL 2020 Auction. But his likely availability for the entire season will also be a huge plus and it will attract teams to go for him. Moreover, he is not Australia’s first-choice pacer anymore. His workload is also quite less when compared to that he had earlier. Thus, he is definitely one of few players who can attract bids from all eight teams in the upcoming auction.
