Jason Behrendorff (Mumbai Indians)
Last year an injury had kept Jason Behrendorff away from the IPL, however, Mumbai Indians kept their faith in the Aussie pacer and has retained him in the team for 1.5 crores.
This time around he seems fully fit and is all set to take part in the IPL for the very first time. The left-handed fast-bowler has the ability to swing the ball both ways, making him an exciting prospect in the powerplay overs.
The 28-years-old plays for Perth Scorchers in the BBL and has quite impressive stats in T20s. In 49 T20 matches, he has taken 66 wickets at an economy of 7.16.
Behrendorff had impressed everyone in his debut T20I match against India, in 2017. Being played in Guwahati, he picked up 4 top-order wickets in his 4 overs at the cost of a mere 21 runs.
Recently, he made his ODI debut for Australia against India and was quite impressive with the ball as he scalped 3 wickets in 2 matches.
