IPL 2020 has already come to an end. Mumbai Indians went on to lift the title for the fifth time, beating Delhi Capitals in the final. The 13th edition of the IPL saw many match-winners who won matches for their respective franchises.
Some of these players are the big names who have been purchased by their respective franchises for a large amount of cash. A specific franchise spends a lot on a player only if they believe that he can deliver and come good for them.
These big names, who are purchased for a hefty amount during an IPL auction, sometimes come good and sometimes fail to meet their team management’s expectations and thus have a bad season, much to the disappointment of their team management.
IPL 2020 saw plenty of big and expensive players fail. This might result in their respective teams releasing them ahead of the IPL 2021 auction.
In the article, le’s take a look at one expensive player who will be released by their team ahead of IPL 2021:
1) Chennai Super Kings- Dwayne Bravo
Dwayne Bravo has been one of CSK’s most loyal servants. CSK used their RTM card to get Bravo for 6.5 crores in the 2018 IPL auction. He has been playing for the Super Kings since 2011 and has given their fans countless memories to cherish forever. It is safe to call him one of the greatest players to have played for CSK.
However, he hasn’t been at his best for CSK since the last two to three seasons. He has had an economy of 10 since 2018 and has been leaking runs with the ball since 2018. Barring a few good knocks in 2018 he has had a torrid time with the bat as well.
He was able to play just the six matches this season and was able to take just the six wickets at an economy rate of 8.57. His time with the bat wasn’t great as well and hence, CSK should release DJ Bravo ahead of IPL 2021 and thus get 6.5 cr in their purse. Besides, Sam Curran had a great season and CSK would want to invest in him for the future.
