IPL 2020: 3 Bangladesh players who could attract bids at the auction
Bangladesh impressed everyone on the T20 leg of their Indian tour. After defeating India in the first T20 at Delhi, they ran the hosts close at Nagpur but failed to get over the finishing line.
A T20 series in India before the IPL auction was the perfect platform for Bangladesh's players to showcase their talent. There were a few impressive individual performances by the visitors, which would have helped them get noticed by the various IPL franchises.
On that note, here is a look at 3 Bangladeshi players who could find attract bids at the 2020 IPL auction:
#1 Mushfiqur Rahim
The wicket-keeper batsman could be a handy pick in the upcoming IPL auction. Mushfiqur Rahim is a gritty middle-order batsman who is a good finisher in T20 cricket.
He proved his worth in Bangladesh's victory over India in the first T20I at Delhi. He scored an unbeaten 60 in 43 balls and guided his team to their maiden win against India in the shortest format.
Rahim is an excellent keeper too, and particularly effective on sub-continent wickets. He has more than 12 years' experience of playing international cricket, and can be an asset for any team.
Kings XI Punjab will be looking for a wicket-keeper in the upcoming season of the IPL as they missed a specialist keeper in the 2019 edition of the IPL. KL Rahul is not a regular keeper, and Rahim could find himself playing for the Kings in the upcoming season.
Royal Challengers Bangalore may also look for another keeper-batsman in place of Heinrich Klaasen, who did not have a successful IPL in 2019. Rahim could be a prefect fit in RCB's middle order and provide the finishing touches to the innings, which has been lacking in the last couple of seasons.
