IPL Auction 2020: 3 unsold players from last year likely to get big bids
The next edition of the Indian Premier League is less than 6 months away and each franchise has already started its preparations. Players' auction for the upcoming edition will take place on the 19th of December in Kolkata.
Before the auctions, each franchise has until 14th November to give out a list of the traded, released and retained players from their squad.
The IPL auctions provide the teams with the chance to remove all the loopholes from their team. The auctions are not just an opportunity for the teams, but it is a career-changing opportunity for the players present in the auction pool too. The auction pool comprises of the released players as well as the last edition's unsold players.
Many players who went unsold last year have made a new and better reputation for themselves in the cricketing world. World Cup performances of many unsold players have not gone unnoticed. The teams might look at last year's unsold players as a valuable addition to their team for the upcoming season.
Here is a list of top 3 unsold players from last year who are likely to get big bids this time around.

#3 Jason Holder
Jason Holder is a very capable all-rounder, who is equally good with the ball and the bat in his hands. He showed his quality recently when he took his CPL team, Barbados Tridents to their second Caribbean Premier League title. Holder can play according to the situation of the match. He can bat in the middle order as well as lower down the order in the team. With the ball, Holder is equally capable. He can open the bowling for the team and swing it both ways. He is a genuine wicket-taker who can bowl in the middle overs too and cause problems through his extra bounce.
A team like Mumbai Indians will enjoy having Jason Holder in their ranks, especially with the Wankhede pitch assisting the seamers more than the spinners. Jason Holder can be very handy for a team like RCB too, who desperately requires a quality all-rounder in their squad.
Jason Holder's quality and experience can make him one of the biggest buys of the upcoming auctions.
