IPL Auction 2020: 3 teams that could target Tom Banton this year
- These 3 teams would benefit a lot if they get Tom Banton on-board.
#2 Kings XI Punjab
The Mohali-based franchise has been trying its level best to fulfill the dream of lifting theIPL trophy. Kings XI Punjab have released some big names ahead of the next edition; the team management has done away with seven players, with the biggest names being Sam Curran and David Miller. They have also traded R Ashwin to the Delhi Capitals in exchange for J Suchith and an additional amount of Rs. 1.5 crore.
The Kings XI need to work on their bench strength because they do not have enough reliable backup players. Punjab need a big name in the batting department who can help the team in posting sizable totals on the board.
Tom Banton is one such guy who can bolster Punjab’s batting department and give support to KL Rahul, Chris Gayle and Karun Nair. Apart from that, he can also be a good choice for the wicket-keeper’s role because he possesses a good amount of keeping experience.Published 24 Nov 2019, 01:36 IST
