The 13th edition of the world’s biggest T20 league, IPL is just two months away as the cricket fans from all over the world are gearing up for yet another season of thrilling cricket matches. The auction for IPL 2020 took place in December and as always, it was filled with surprises.
Pat Cummins emerged as the most expensive player from the IPL Auction while even Glenn Maxwell fetched a hefty sum. However, there were several big names from Australia who missed out on an IPL deal this year. Australia’s T20 league Big Bash League is underway currently, where many unsold stars are showcasing their magic.
Here are the 5 unsold players from IPL 2020 Auction who have impressed in the Big Bash League:
1. Shaun Marsh
Australia’s top-order batsman, Shaun Marsh surprisingly went unsold in this year’s IPL auction. The main reason behind that could have been his base price of 1.5 Crores. Had Marsh set a lower base price, he could have been signed by one of the franchises.
Nevertheless, the 36-year-old from Western Australia did not lose motivation as he continued to score runs in the Big Bash League. Playing for the Melbourne Renegades this year, Marsh has aggregated 449 runs in just 12 matches.
He has a batting average of 37.42 whereas he also has a decent strike rate of 124.03. The left-handed batsman has recorded three half-centuries besides striking 40 fours and 14 maximums. The IPL franchises may regret over their decision of letting Marsh go unsold in the auction.
