The Indian Premier League is well known for the platform it provides to various cricketers. Initially, the cricketing boards were reluctant to send their cricketers to this lucrative league. The main reason for this was they were afraid that it might hamper the performance of the national side. But, IPL became one of the most important tournaments over time!
The IPL not only provides platforms for the youngsters. Apart from that, it gives chances to the experienced ones to prove themselves that they too can survive in this format. To be frank, IPL changes the lives of many unknown faces. The mega-contract can change your career and provide you the chance to share the dressing room with the legends of the game.
Well, it is 2021 and we have a mini-auction ahead of us. After a magnificent season in 2020, the franchises are looking forward to making few changes in their playing eleven. This year, the vice-captain of the Bangladesh national team has thrown his hat in the auction. Well, let us have a look at the 3 teams that can pick Mushfiqur Rahim in the IPL Auction:
3. Punjab Kings
Do not get surprised by the name! The Kings XI Punjab have renamed themselves as the Punjab Kings. Well, they have to apply every trick of the permutations and combinations book to ensure that they do not choke during the initial stage of the tournament. Last year, they almost went into the playoffs but the losses during the early stage of the tournament ensured that they fell short.
The Kings had a good IPL season though! After a horrible start, they made a terrific comeback in the tournament. While KL Rahul and Chris Gayle handled the batting order, the bowling unit was successful in their attempt to choke the opposition during the middle overs. An out-of-form Maxwell never helped the team’s cause and hence, there was a batting collapse now and then. To avoid another blunder, they can look forward to including Mushfiqur Rahim in their squad.
Mushfiqur Rahim has not performed exceptionally well in the shortest format of the game. However, with the tournament being conducted in India, the Kings should look forward to including him in their squad. With the highest score of 72, he can tee off and rotate the strike at the same time. Therefore, the Punjab Kings should look forward to including him in their playing eleven!
