Several superstars have the potential to lead their teams.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) will undergo a drastic change next year when the mega auction takes place. With several new faces, teams could be looking to get stronger and improve in certain areas. In addition, we could also see the change of fortunes of some teams.
Teams that are currently struggling can make subtle changes as well. IPL is all about providing the perfect platform for players to showcase their skills. The most perfect example is that of Rohit Sharma, who, since 2013, shows his talents as a captain.
Under his leadership, MI won five IPL titles so far. Well that caught the attention of the team management and now he is the vice-captain of the national team.
The IPL standards have helped Team India and other national teams to develop. Well, several superstars have the potential to lead their teams.
Let’s take a look at 5 foreign stars who can be signed as captains of their respective teams during the IPL mega auction:
1. Pat Cummins
The injuries had hindered Pat cummins career at the start. On his debut, he played a winning role with the Wanderers against South Africa. But, later, he was unable to rejoin the team due to injuries. However, his determination made him the best bowler in the world according to the Test rankings.
Cummins is the current vice-captain of the Australian cricket team. In 30 T20I, he selected 37 counters. It also has a superb economy rate of 6.94 in T20 format. In addition, he is a practical drummer at the bottom of the order.
In the IPL he has a save rate of 8.24 which is decent for someone playing in the power play and on death. But, if a team needs a captain, Pat is a good choice. He has experience, can set up good pitches and can inspire the team with his bowling performance. Pat can also feed the emerging fast bowlers.
