Wicket keepers have an important role while balancing the team perfectly.
A few hours are enough for the mini auction and the excitement builds. Other than that, India convincingly beat England in Chennai by a whopping 317 point margin. But the show is not over in Chennai. One day after the 2ndtest, we have the 2021 IPL auction in Chennai itself and work on it will start at 3 p.m.
After the initial draft of 1097 players, the final list of 164 was published by the BCCI. Some important names like Sreesanth were omitted while young talents like Arjun Tendulkar were included. Different teams require different role players, batsmen, bowlers, versatile players, etc. Wicket keepers have an important role while balancing the team perfectly and let’s take a look at some of the wicket keepers who could win big in the auctions.
IPL 2021: Top 5 box office keepers to watch at auctions
1) Alex Carey
The Australian keeper played for the Delhi Capitals last IPL season, but was released by the franchise the following year. Carey hasn’t made many appearances for Delhi this season and hasn’t had a chance to speak.
But he’s an exciting talent and a good goalkeeper. He was one of the BBL’s top scorers recently, scoring up to 425 points. He also took 20 takes and scored a century. He is also generally Australia’s first choice goalkeeper when available in letters of intent.
He’s also a good spin player and sweeps the ball very well. IPL to be played in India, this is a very important skill. It is also beating at a very decent strike rate. So Carey can be a wicket keeper to watch out for at the auction.
