IPL 2019: 5 overseas players who will be part of the IPL for the first time
#4 Jason Behrendoff (MI)
Jason Behrendoff was picked by Mumbai Indians in the last year’s auction for Rs 1.5 Crore. Unfortunately, he got injured before the IPL and couldn’t take part last year. MI retained him this year and he would be part of the IPL for the first time.
The 28-year-old is a good left-arm fast bowler from Western Australia. He swings the ball both ways at the start of the innings. He plays for Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League. He showed what he is capable of when he came to India in 2017 for the T20Is and picked up four wickets for just 21 runs in the second T20I match at Guwahati.
His spell of four overs helped Australia bowl out India for just 118. His four scalps included India’s dominant top 3 and Manish Pandey. He had a good ODI debut as well, as he picked up two wickets in the first ODI against India.
He will be eager to perform for MI in the 12th season of the IPL.
