10 best all-rounders bought in the IPL 7 Auctions
- 10 best all-rounders bought in 2014 IPL Player Auctions
Limited overs cricket is not just about a pure batsman or a complete bowler. It is also about a unique set of players who excel in both aspects.
The formats of the game might have undergone a plethora of changes since 2000, but let’s face it: every team, aspiring to be world-beaters, needs the bits and pieces lot. I’m not quite sure whether they belong in Test cricket, but the ODI and Twenty20 forms would lose their sheen without these guys around.
Glory days of the past are peppered with the feats of legends such as Collis King, Kapil Dev, Richard Hadlee, Gary Sobers, Ian Botham and the likes. In recent times, Shane Watson has wielded the baton rather well, along with many others.
At the recently concluded auctions for the seventh season of the cash-rich Indian Premier League, there was some fierce bidding done in order to gain the services of such players. After all, in the lightning-paced format of instant cricket, they are extremely vital to the success of the team as a whole.
Here is a look at ten of the best all-rounders purchased in the auctions this time.
