Batsman Alex Carey, 29, wicket keeper, recently showed strong T20 batting performances in the opening. At the IPL 2021 auction, many franchises can show their great interest in purchasing this Australian cricketer.
In 30 T20I, Alex Carey scored 176 points with an average of 12.57. While the 2020 IPL was his first IPL experience, he played three games for the Delhi capitals and scored just 32 points (16.00 average). Recently, the Delhi capitals also released it ahead of the 2021 IPL auction.
However, Carey was very impressed in the BBL 2020/21. As her side Adelaide Strikers just finished their tournament run after losing the Eliminator, Carey was their second-highest scorer with 425 points in 13 matches (32.69 avg; 122.12 hit rate), including a century and two half centuries.
Over the past two centuries in the BBL 10 championship, Carey was the first centurion (101 against Brisbane Heat in Adelaide on January 10, 2021).
In opening, left-handed batsman Alex Carey looks very good. He is also the regular wicket keeper batsman for Australia in international limited-overs matches. Thus, in addition to its gate, IPL franchises can also buy it at the IPL 2021 auction to fill their opening slots. Carey is also very keen on having another IPL season.
IPL 2021 auctions: 3 teams that can cause a bidding war for Alex Carey
Capitals of Delhi (DC)
The Delhi Capitals just released Alex Carey ahead of the 2021 IPL auction. But while they still need at least one more wicket keeper, an opener will strengthen this team as well. So the Delhi franchise may be thinking about buying her again at the IPL 2021 auction, especially after looking at her recent batting form.
Delhi Capitals Head Coach Ricky ponting also recently revealed that there’s a good chance they could make a strong bid for this Aussie drummer. Ponting also communicated with Carey on this matter. While Delhi capitals can always add three overseas cricketers, Carey can be their major choice.
