2. Jason Holder
Jason Holder played for the new franchise Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the 2022 IPL and before the 2023 mini-auction, he got released also by the franchise due to delivering unsatisfactory performance with both bat and ball. In the last edition, he appeared in 12 games and scored only 58 runs with a dismal average of 9.67. While with the ball too, he delivered disappointment by picking up only 14 wickets at a very high economy rate of 9.42.
Going through his poor figures in the last season, LSG refused to believe in him for their next edition, but in the 2023 auction, many franchises could bid for him after noting his past displays and his reputation as an all-rounder in international cricket. The RR franchise, in the last edition, gave a chance to Jimmy Neesham to deliver as an all-rounder but the New Zealander was unsuccessful to do so.
This time, after releasing Neesham, RR’s search for an all-rounder will continue at the auction, and Holder with his experience and capability could be an ideal candidate for the post. The West Indies cricketer, with his fast bowling, can chip in well by contributing to the team with other bowlers such as Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, and Yuzvendra Chahal. With the bat too, he could bring out positives in the team with well-known figures such as Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, and his West Indies teammate Shimron Hetmyer.
