The thirteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was one of its kind. For the very first time, the tournament was conducted in an alien atmosphere. No fans, a virtual sound system to provide a feeling of a packed stadium, and many more features were added. The players had to practice within their bio-bubble and multiple players called off their campaign even before the tournament kicked off.
However, when one lists down the ranking of different editions of IPL in terms of quality of competition, the thirteenth edition will be ranked at the top. Close matches, multiple Super Overs in a single game, and three Super Overs in one day! These are some of the events that took place in IPL 2020. Apart from that, the previous edition also witnessed some unusual scenes. For the very first time, CSK was unable to qualify for the playoffs. Finally, their experience failed to push them into the top four of the table.
As we move ahead to another season of the IPL, the main focus will be on the auction. The analysts will try every combination of pen and paper to increase their chances of winning. However, another aspect of IPL that is overlooked by the fans is trading amongst the teams. Yes, players are traded from one team to another and sometimes, this trade factor works wonders for the teams.
Here is the list of team-wise one bowler who can be traded ahead of the IPL 2021 auction
1. Avesh Khan (Delhi Capitals)
The 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League was a memorable one for the Delhi Capitals. For the first time, they managed to reach the final of the most popular T20 league. For most of the time, the team relied on their pace attack and the pair of Rabada and Anrich made sure that the opposition struggled to get a quickfire start. However, things turned upside down whenever the pace duo leaked runs.
Delhi Capitals lost their winning momentum during the final phase of the group stage. Later on, they were comfortably defeated by the eventual champions, the Mumbai Indians. Even though they managed to beat the Sunrisers, they failed to put the Mumbai batting line-up under pressure. Most probably, they might look forward to work with the same batting line up. But, they have to find some backup options.
For Avesh Khan, the thirteenth edition was a forgetful one. He played one match for the Capitals and was taken to the stands. His economy might not help him to get into the playing eleven as it is very high for a frontline bowler (10.50). However, he might redeem himself by joining the Kolkata Knight Riders. A team that backs its fast bowlers, Eoin Morgan’s captaincy can help him to grow as a fast bowler. Talking about the trade, KKR can bring in Avesh in place of M Siddharth.
