Every time the IPL auction comes around, the focus invariably shifts on the Indian talent. They form a big part of each IPL squad. They are generally scouted through the Indian domestic circuit. Vijay Hazare Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy are the two big tournaments which the IPL teams keep a close eye on.
With the Vijay Hazare Trophy done and dusted for the season, there were multiple players who stole the limelight with their consistent performances. While there were some big players who performed well, but there were also a few relatively unknown players who stood out as well.
Some of these don’t have IPL contracts as well. Thus, here we list out five cricketers who were top performers in the Vijay Hazare Trophy this year and might get bids in the upcoming IPL auction for the 2020 season.
5 VHT top performers who can get bids in IPL 2020 auction:
Despite Mumbai getting knocked out in the quarter-finals of the Vijay Hazare tournament, there is one name that is doing rounds in Indian cricketing circles. That is Yashasvi Jaiswal. The 17-year-old top-order batsman has hogged all the limelight and the entire nation is talking about him.
Having played a mere six games (at least four-five games less than the others), Jaiswal still made it to the top five run-getters list in the tournament. The left-handed opener scored 564 runs at an average of 112.80. Moreover, these runs came at a strike-rate of 104.05. He struck one half-century and three hundreds, which included a record-breaking double ton. His lowest score in the tournament was 22.
Thus, Jaiswal was simply magnificent in the tournament. In fact, he was perhaps the find of the tournament. He has created a huge impact and that is most likely to attract a lot of attention. There is no doubt that the young opener will get bids in the IPL auction for the 2020 season.
