Right from the start of the first edition, the West Indian players have been a big part of the Indian Premier League (IPL). In fact, some of the most entertaining players in the IPL have been from the West Indies. Be it Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard or some of the others, they’ve all been a big part of the IPL.
Robust power, monstrous sixes, buoyant attitude and impactful performances – West Indies players have been an indispensable part of the IPL for their distinctive traits. The Men from the Caribbean are known for being good T20 players. Some of them have been performing well in the recent past as well.
Thus, with the auction for the 2020 IPL season only a few days away, here we look five West Indian players who might get big bids in the auction:
Sheldon Cottrell’s stocks have risen quite a bit over the last year or so. He’s played most of his international games in 2019 and has become West Indies’ premier white-ball bowler. The left-arm pacer has been one of the key performers for West Indies this year.
He has picked up 28 wickets and 14 wickets in ODIs and T20Is respectively. Cottrell can be very effective with both the new and the old ball. He has the ability to move the new ball and trouble the batsmen. The Jamaican fast bowler has decent variations as well.
Thus, Cottrell will attract quite a few teams in the upcoming auction. Moreover, his base price of INR 50 lakhs works in his favour as well.
