Jonny Bairstow debuted in the IPL in the year 2019. Sunrisers Hyderabad bought him in the auction and he opened the innings with SRH skipper David Warner which completely transformed the way the Orange Army batted that season

He cemented his spot with back-to-back spectacular performances, scoring at a strike rate of 150 and utilizing the first six overs to the core. He hit close to 450 runs in 10 matches and even smashed a century in his first season.

Despite good performances with the bat, he was released by the franchise in 2022. When he entered the mega auction, he was attracted by many bidders but was finally picked up by Punjab Kings for INR 6.75 crore.

His first season at the team in 2022 was his lowest till now where he scored 253 runs in 11 matches at an average of just 23, well below his standards. He has been retained by the franchise for the upcoming season and it’s time for him to make this opportunity count as PBKS bank their hopes of a good start on Bairstow.

Bairstow exhibited his class during the 2016 cricket season while playing for England. Presenting himself as a formidable and attacking opener, his run in the T20 format on the international level proved good enough to turn the heads of franchises in the 2019 IPL auction. He was picked up by SRH for 2.2 crores, where he delivered brilliantly and established himself as the go-to opener of the franchise. Before the 2022 mega auction, he was released by the side and after a good round of bidding war, PBKS bagged him for INR 6.75 crore. He was retained for the same amount in the 2023 IPL where he was ruled out due to an injury. He is retained for 6.75 crores again in the current 2024 IPL season.
