Once again, the colour of IPL in the country is going to climb from cricket lovers to players. The auction for the 13th season of IPL will be held in Kolkata on the 19th of this month. The wait for IPL is not only for the country but also for all the foreign players.
Franchisees make crores of rupees on the in-form players and join them in their team, but no franchisees claim any bad form players. Let’s know about the three players whose base prize is two crore rupees, but in the 2020 IPL, hardly a team can afford to bid on them.
Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh could have become a big name in the IPL auction by performing well in Australia’s domestic cricket. The base price of Marsh is two crores, far more than his performance. This is the reason that he goes unsold in IPL 2020 auction is almost certain. No franchise would want to spend so much money on Marsh.
Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has done well in Test cricket, but in terms of the T20 format, Hazlewood has no experience in any franchise league so far. For the Australian team, he has played very little cricket in this format. In the IPL, Hazlewood has drafted his name with a base price of two crores, but given his performance, no franchise would want to spend so much money on him.
Sri Lankan all-rounder Angelo Mathews is also one of the players whose base price will not see any team bid for him in the IPL 2020 auction. Angelo Matthews last played the IPL in 2017, where he scored 32 runs in three matches at a strike rate of 118.51. No franchisee would want to spend Rs 2 crore on such a performance. Matthews has drafted his name for auction with a base price of two crores.
