5 Overseas players who will play in IPL for the first time in 2019
Sam Curran (Kings XI Punjab)
Kings XI Punjab bought the England all-rounder Sam Curran at a whopping price of ₹7.2 crores in the auctions. Such a high bid was expected for the 20-year-old, looking at his incredible performance in the Test series during India's tour of England. In the entire series, he had shown some great all-round performances and proved to be the difference between the two sides.
It was already predicted that all the IPL franchise would definitely try to include Curran in their squad and the auctions didn't disappoint. However, the concern is that Curran has not played much white-ball cricket and it will be interesting to see if he can repeat his red-ball heroics with the white ball or not.
