Five Players Who Are Likely To Go Unsold In IPL Auction 2017
India is a rich country in producing spinners and batsmen. IPL Auction has already witnessed that foreign spinners generally go unsold due to this reason. Franchises have only entertained the foreign spinners if they have dominated the world with their spin. Same goes for batting. Only International stars are picked by franchises. Rest the franchises depend on local talents which have low base price compared to the other international players. Here are 5 players who are likely to go unsold in IPL 10 Auction.
Australian Wicketkeeper batsman has won many games for his national team at international level. But yet he makes to the list of getting unsold in IPL 2017 Auction. Reason? Well, all franchises have their wicketkeeper retained and no franchise will like to buy Brad Haddin priced at 1.5 crores as a backup keeper. It is likely that franchises looking for backup wicketkeeper will go for a local talent instead of Brad Haddin. Also picking up a local young lad into the side is beneficial for future Indian cricket.
West Indies batsmen who had a key role in West Indies World Cup win in ICC T20 WC but yet he is likely to remain unsold. Priced at 1 crore, Marlon is not the player which franchise is looking for. No doubt he is a T20 specialist, Marlon will likely have a chance in next year’s IPL Auction where all players would be in the pool. But no franchise will pick Marlon for 1 crore base price for the tenure of 1 year.
T20 specialist bowler, Kyle Abbott who has been in news for last few days after signing the Kolpak deal is likely to remain unsold. Abbott has played for Kings XI Punjab in past. Kyle Abbott is a good pick for any team even at a price tag of 1.5 crores. But since he has signed the Kolpak deal with English county, franchises will just try to overlook Kyle Abbott. Another reason for going unsold is clashing dates of English County and IPL 2017. Since the dates clash, Abbott will not be available for most part of the season.
Sri Lankan captain, Angelo Mathews has a history of making bowlers cry in limited overs cricket. He has led Sri Lanka to famous victories in recent past. But sadly he has a poor track record in IPL editions. He has been a part of IPL for most of the years. He has played for DD, RPS in past. Now that franchises are going for selected players only, Angelo Mathews is likely to find himself in the list of unsold players.
As we mentioned earlier, its been harsh on foreign spinners when it comes to IPL Auction. India have enough spin talent that satisfies all eight franchise needs. Even the local talents find their rhythm on Indian surface. With a base price of INR 1.5 crore, Lyon won’t come cheap and with a limited budget, the possibility of release next year and the fact that he hasn’t played as many T20s might count against Lyon.
