IPL Auction 2020: 3 best players who won't be playing this IPL
#2 Shakib Al Hasan
The star Bangladeshi all-rounder will be another notable absentee from IPL 2020 after getting banned for failing to report an old case of corruption in the game. His two-year ban prompted the management at Sunrisers Hyderabad, a team he had been a part of for the past two seasons, to release him with immediate effect.
He had had a disappointing IPL 2019, playing only three games for the Orange Army, with a negligible contribution to the team's cause.
His overall record in the tournament, however, is a bit better. In the 63 matches he has played in, the 32-year-old has taken 59 wickets at a decent economy of 7.46 along with 746 runs at a strike rate of 126. There is no doubt that Shakib’s exclusion for the next season will affect SRH’s strategies leading into the tournament given what he brings to the table.Published 07 Dec 2019, 23:00 IST
