IPL Auction 2020: 5 overseas players who could receive major bids
#4 Mushfiqur Rahim
Mushfiqur Rahim has not even made his debut in the cash-rich league yet. As usual, the veteran found no takers in last year's auction for his base price of 50 lakhs INR. Therefore, nobody expects Rahim to get a contract this year.
However, his name could attract some attention due to his consistent performances during the 2019 ICC World Cup. The wicket-keeper batsman was the second-highest run-getter for Bangladesh during the torunament.
Rahim notched 367 runs in eight matches at an average of 52.43 and a strike rate of 92.68. He also scored a century and two half-centuries in that tournament. Such impressive performances will not fail to grab the attention of the franchises.
Also, the Bangladesh veteran is an expert in sub-continental conditions; he is the second leading run-scorer in the history of the Bangladesh Premier League with 1783 runs in 67 innings. Therefore, this might be the year where Rahim gets his long-awaited IPL call-up.Published 22 Oct 2019, 23:53 IST
