IPL Auction: 3 unsold players from 2018 who may earn big bucks in 2019
The IPL Auction for the 2019 edition is around the corner in which over thousand players will be going under the hammer out of which just 70 will be getting a spot in any one of the eight franchises. The auction will this time take place on December 18 in Jaipur for the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier league which is expected to take place in late March next year.
These auctions always come up with a surprise at the end of the for everyone whether it be contracting a not-so-known player for a huge amount or letting the stars of the game unsold. Here are three such superstars of the game who went unsold in 2018 but can grab massive bids this time around.
#3 Hashim Amla
After a commendable season in 2017, Kings XI Punjab let off Hashim Amla in the next year's auction and surprisingly he went unsold as none of the franchise bid for him. The South African made 420 runs in 2017 at an average of over 60 which also included two centuries but still failed to grab a team for himself in the sequential year.
After seeing his consistency at the top order for which most of the teams will be looking for this time, Amla is expected to grab a decent deal for himself. He is also doing reasonably well at the ongoing Mzansi Super League for his home side Durban Heat which is an important thing to keep in mind at the time of the auctions.
Everyone has a misconception that Amla is not a goos T20 player but his numbers don't suggest so as he averages over 32 with a decent strike rate of around 130 in this format which such a consistency.
