IPL 2018: 4 T20 specialists set to make IPL debut
One of them participated in last year's auction, only to go unsold.
IPL auction always brings surprises with its arrival, from T20 veterans going unsold to some unanticipated picks going for crores. Amidst all the auction chaos, one thing to note was that the franchises did their homework adequately this time.
The talents who missed out earlier got picked this time along with some new faces, and credit goes to the ongoing culture of T20 cricket around the world. Here is the list of specialist T20 cricketers who are set to be a part of the IPL for the first time.
#4 Jofra Archer
The fast-bowling sensation, who was born in Barbados, played for Windies U-19s in 2013. Post that, Archer has been playing for Sussex in the County Championship since the last couple of years.
Moreover, the 22-year-old has been the find of the season in this year's BBL, picking up 15 wickets in 11 games. Playing for Hobart Hurricanes, he grabbed his best figures of 3/15 against Strikers while clicking 145 km/h regularly, thereby stealing all the limelight.
He was bagged by the Rajasthan Royals for a whopping INR 7.2 crores for his heroics with the ball.
