He is back in form, just like before smashing sixes . He is CPL’s highest run scorer this year with 378 runs out of 10 matches (played 9 innings). He was a big hit in Global T20 Canada as well this year , I expect him to come back to IPL , most likely bagging a contract from his former team -Mumbai Indians.

2. Mustafizur Rahman

He is a well known player in IPL, bagging emerging player of the tournament in 2016 (the only non-Indian to do so). This year he had to skip IPL this year since Bangladesh cricket board did not allow him to play in order to prepare him for the World Cup.The Bangladeshi would most likely be picked by Mumbai Indians or KKR .

3. Mitchell Starc

2015 and 2019 World Cup’s Highest wicket taker ,who doesn’t know him…. He was a wonderful buy for RCB in 2014 and 2015 taking them to playoffs single handedly in the latter year. He is surely going to fetch a large amount of money for the speed and variations he possesses.

4.Sheldon Cottrell

Not many would have expected him to be in my list, but the man with the famous salute is surely going to be bought by a franchise for a huge amount ,most likely RCB will purchase this Jamaican. He possesses wonderful talent and is one of the best fielders in cricket nowadays, he would surely be a valuable addition and an effective bowler for RCB if purchased.

5. Eoin Morgan

Which team wouldn’t want the 2019 World Cup winning captain in their armoury . One of the best captains of T20 format with great strategies , and a handy middle order batsman who can tilt games towards his team. A very good assessor of situations who can either play a slow innings or an explosive one .He can solve RCB, SRH and DC ‘s lower order batting problem and can assist Shreyas Iyer or Virat in winning the title .

At the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction 2019, 351 players went under the hammer in Jaipur. While some made a fortune, others weren’t as lucky. A total of ₹107 crore was spent by eight franchise owners at the 12th edition of IPL auctions in Jaipur. IPL’s eight franchisees bought 60 players, including 40 from India and 20 from overseas in this auction. One key highlight of the IPL 2019 auctions was the emergence of young talent.

1.Jimmy Neesham

James Neesham is one of the best products that New Zealand have unearthed in their recent past. A player more than useful with both bat and ball, Neesham was part of the New Zealand Under-19 squad for the 2010 World Cup. Two years after making his first-class debut and impressing everybody, James was called up to New Zealand’s T20I squad for their series against South Africa and made his T20I debut in Durban in December 2012. His ODI debut followed the next month. Consistent performances in the limited overs saw him earn a place in the Test team and he did not disappoint. Neesham scored a hundred on debut against India in early 2014, which is also the highest number of runs by a no. 8 batsman in Tests. Neesham is an important player in New Zealand’s middle order in the limited-overs formats and earned himself a contract with the Delhi franchise for the 2014 edition of the Indian T20 League.

2.Chris Woakes

One of the heroes of England’s World Cup victory, Woakes has been in the form of his life for quite a time now. This man can take some credit for the Three Lions enjoying one of the best summers in their history. The all-rounder came in handy with both bat and ball according to the needs of the situation.

The 30-year-old scalped 16 wickets in the tournament, besides chipping in with 134 runs at crucial junctures. Who can forget his special first spell against India, where he conceded only 8 runs from his 5 overs, including three maiden overs on a trot. Besides, he scalped 3-fers in both semi-final and the final.

Woakes has all the traits to be successful in Indian conditions. He can swing the ball in the initial phases. Besides, his variations come handy to restrict batsmen at the death. Last but not least, he can add a considerable amount of depth to the batting of any team.

3.Ishan Porel

This man grabbed the headlines very recently when his 6-34 helped his side Bengal to outclass Jammu and Kashmir in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. A find of the Under-19 World Cup 2018, Porel can consistently bowl at speeds exceeding 140 kmph. Besides, he has form backing him.

Surprisingly, Porel has been ignored in the auctions for two consecutive seasons now. He was at the peak of his form ahead of the IPL 2018 auctions but still failed to get any bids. He then scalped 10 wickets in Vijay Hazare Trophy 2018, only to remain unsold even next time.

The 21-year-old has been a regular pick in the India-A squad. For a pacer with such a talent, failing to find a team is out of reach. However, one would hope that there is a change in his fortunes this time around.


Born in Dehradun, Abhimanyu Easwaran, has made it to the India’A’ team on the sheer bulk of runs over the past few seasons at the domestic level. While his red-ball stats are pretty impressive for an opening batsman, he’s more at home with the white-ball format of the game where he averages 50.

Easwaran is also one of the few Indian players who feature in the Dhaka Premier League and has been a top performer for Prime Bank, one of the leading teams in Bangladesh. His exploits in the shorter version of the game was duly noted and Easwaran was part of the India ‘A’ team for the home series against New Zealand.
