Royal Challengers Bangalore obtained Stonis last season for ₹6.2 crores after trading Indian batsman Mandeep Singh to Kings XI Punjab surprisingly released the Australian all-rounder ahead of the IPL 2020 auction. His astronomical price tag might have contributed for his release but the 30-year-old would certainly be on the radar of several franchises at the upcoming auction given his dominance in the limited-overs cricket.
With 1725 runs and 61 wickets, he has displayed his all-round credentials in the shorter format of the game as much as he has done it in first-class (3179 runs and 64 wickets) and List A (2422 runs and 71 wickets) matches. Stonis who is a proven match-winner in the Big Bash League and for the Australian team deserves a return to the Chinnaswamy Stadium given his big-hitting abilities and useful right-arm medium spells.Published 12 Dec 2019, 15:39 IST
