IPL 2019: 3 Australian players to watch out for
#2 Billy Stanlake (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
The 24-year-old Billy Stanlake is known for his deadly bouncers and raw pace. He is one of the tallest players to ever represent Cricket Australia.
Stanlake has picked up 25 wickets from 17 T20I matches at an average of 20.08. In this year’s BBL, he picked 11 wickets from 11 matches for Adelaide Strikers while averaging 32.20.
In IPL, Stanlake has been a part of Royal Challengers Bangalore (2017) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (2018-present). He has picked 6 wickets from his 6 IPL appearances at an average of 28.57.
In IPL 2018 he played only 4 matches before he was ruled out due to a finger injury.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have one of the best bowling attacks in the league, and a bowler like Stanlake can add even more pace and bounce to the arsenal. This is a big opportunity for him to make an impact in the shortest form of the game.
