Uncapped Australian cricketer Jake Weatherald, 26, may get high demand in the 2021 IPL auction, mainly due to his performance in the 2020/21 Big Bash League.
In the 2020/21 Big Bash League, Adelaide Strikers cricketer Jake Weatherald scored 433 points in 15 games (avg 36.08; strike rate 141.04), including three half centuries. Not only as an opener, he also played as a middle-order batsman in this BBL season, where he has already played the 51-run 25-ball stroke. However, he is a true top-notch drummer.
Other than BBL, Jake Weatherald has not played in any other T20 league. But, he is now a constant performer in the BBL. So, during the IPL 2021 auction, at least some franchises can target him to add him to their team.
