IPL 2021: 3 teams that can choose S Sreesanth for the IPL 2021.
Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021: It was almost 8-9 years before we saw S Sreesanth bowling in IPL and international cricket. The pacemaker was listed in the IPL point-fixing case and was banned by BCCI after confirming the case. While Sreesanth has completed his ban and is back in cricket.
Sreesanth is currently playing the 2021 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy for Kerala. The stimulator expects to make a comeback after 8 long years in international cricket. The road is not easy for the 37 year old pacemaker, but it is not impossible.
Sreesanth will currently target IPL for its comeback and hopes to be selected by one of the franchises in the 2021 IPL mini-auctions.
Here we will discuss 3 teams that can choose S Sreesanth for the IPL 2021.
3 teams that can choose S Sreesanth in IPL 2021:
Kings XI Punjab:
Kings XI Punjab may be the franchise that could pick S Sreesanth in the 2021 IPL mini-auctions. The KL Rahul-led squad had a bumpy season last time around and their lack of bowling threatened them. Despite plenty of points on board, Kings did not take the victory. Their death bowling is a problem and management surely knows it.
S Sreesanth will be a good option for the Kings as they head into the 2021 IPL. Their stick is solid and an experienced bowler alongside Mohammad Shami can make their dreams come true.
Sreesanth had previously played for Kings XI Punjab and will be happy to provide his services to them.
Royals of Rajasthan:
Despite being one of the best foreign players in the arsenal, Rajasthan Royals slipped and finished last in the points table last season. With the franchise freeing Varun Arron from the team, a national stimulator has a niche to fill. S Sreesanth will be an exciting choice for the inaugural champions.
Sreesanth was with the Rajasthan Royals when he received a ban and the team also suffered a ban for two years. It’ll be an interesting call for the Royals, as they keep their old host in the 2021 IPL mini-auctions.
Chennai Super Kings:
The three-time title-winners had a humiliating season last time when they appeared in the park. CSK failed to qualify for the playoffs and this was the first instance. CSK were embarrassed because their main players were found on the wrong side of the 1930s.
With a few senior players saying goodbye to the franchise, S Sreesanth can make it to the side. The KSC led by MS Dhoni will be the team that will be delighted to write to S Sreesanth. The stimulator can swing the ball back and forth and can be handy in openings.
He can be a replacement for Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur if they get injured.
