2) Andrew Tye – Rajasthan Royals
The Pink team began their IPL 2020 sojourn with a royal touch. Winning games against two quality sides like Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings gave them the necessary confidence. However, after putting on a show at Sharjah, the team slipped up in their encounters against Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore. The heavy losses have affected their net run-rate, and now they are placed sixth in the table.
So far, Rajasthan’s batting unit has been their propelling force. The likes of Sanju Samson and Steve Smith have done justice to their role. But the team will be worried that other than Jofra Archer, nobody in the bowling unit has stood up. They have quality fast-bowling commodities, but they cannot use most of them because of the 4-overseas player rule. In that case, their latest recruit, Andrew Tye, is highly unlikely to make it to the playing XI in most of the games.
Thus the Australian capped player should give a thought about changing his dressing room. He is a former Purple Cap winner and has enough T20 experience to lead any bowling attack. Moreover, Tye can be a lifesaver in the death overs. His former team Punjab will welcome him with open hands as their bowling unit has been miserable in the end overs. They need somebody like Tye to ease the burden on Mohammed Shami.
