The dates for the IPL 2020 auctions are out. The fans will be eagerly waiting for 19th December, since that’s the official date for the auctions of the toughest cricket league in the world. The fates of many aspiring players will be at stake in this auction. Since the teams can retain as many players as they wish to, we might not see much change in the core.
However, the franchises would have carefully followed the World Cup 2019 and the domestic tournaments, to decide their wishlist. The players who have performed in these leagues will have a chance to get big bids in the auction. Moreover, many players who had gone unsold last time around would be looking for redemption.
Let us take a look at 5 unsold players from the previous season, who might get huge bids next time
One of the heroes of England’s World Cup victory, Woakes has been in the form of his life for quite a time now. This man can take some credit for the Three Lions enjoying one of the best summers in their history. The all-rounder came in handy with both bat and ball according to the needs of the situation.
The 30-year-old scalped 16 wickets in the tournament, besides chipping in with 134 runs at crucial junctures. Who can forget his special first spell against India, where he conceded only 8 runs from his 5 overs, including three maiden overs on a trot. Besides, he scalped 3-fers in both semi-final and the final.
Woakes has all the traits to be successful in Indian conditions. He can swing the ball in the initial phases. Besides, his variations come handy to restrict batsmen at the death. Last but not least, he can add a considerable amount of depth to the batting of any team.
