1. Mitchell Starc
The Australian fast bowler has always commanded good price whenever came up for bidding in IPL auction and this one too might not be an exception. The left-arm pacer can be effective in both end of the innings with his highly accurate Yorkers. But Starc could be a big draw and Royal Challengers Bangalore, his former IPL team, could eye him as they have released Dale Steyn.
2. Eoin Morgan
England's World Cup winning captain can be a destructive force. The left-handed Morgan can play orthodox cricketing shots and the innovative versions. He had missed the IPL 2019 because of England's preparation for the ICC World Cup 2019 and if he is in the mix then Morgan will certainly attract a big bid. Teams like Chennai Super Kings, RCB and Kings XI Punjab could be gunning for him.
3. Chris Lynn
Kolkata Knight Riders have released this hard-hitting opener from Australia after a tepid IPL 2019. But that does not diminish the value of Lynn at the top of the order. KKR might bid for him again at a slightly reduced price or teams like Mumbai Indians or Rajasthan Royals can look for a back-up opener in Lynn and in that case he can get a high price.
4. Tom Banton
The English T20 sensation has taken the world by storm in Vitality Blast and in the T10 League in Abu Dhabi. His T20 strike rate of 169 is a massive attraction for teams and the IPL franchises are certainly going to go after him if he comes up for auction.
