Heading into BBL 2020, take a look at the seven IPL stars who will play in the 10th edition of the Big Bash League:
Rashid Khan (Adelaide Strikers): Rashid has been one of the most sought after bowlers in IPL and the Afghan leggie had a brilliant 2020 IPL where he bagged 20 wickets in 16 matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Overall, Rashid has chosen 75 wickets in 62 IPL games at an impressive 6.24 economy rate.
Marcus Stoinis (Melbourne stars): Marcus Stoinis has been a game changer for Delhi Capitals at IPL 2020. He rescued the team numerous times with his full show. The Australian scored 352 runs in 17 games with a strike rate of 148.52 to go three-fifties in IPL 13. He also bagged 13 wickets in the tournament. Additionally, Stoinis finished as the BBL’s top career scorer last year with a record 705 runs to his name in 17 innings with a staggering 54.23 average.
Nicholas Pooran (Melbourne stars): Pooran, who played for the Kings XI Punjab at IPL 2020, was in brilliant form in the tournament, scoring 353 runs in 14 games with a 169.71 hit rate to go along with two fifty. He is known for his six-hit prowess and finished the 2020 IPL as the fourth-best six-hitter in the tournament with 25 maximums to his name.
Jason Holder (Sydney Sixers): Holder was tied as Mitchell Marsh at Sunrisers Hyderabad camp for IPL 2020 and the Windies off-roader entered the eleven for SRH midway through the team’s fluctuating journey at IPL 13, but still left a significant mark on the tournament. . In seven games, Holder collected 14 wickets with a strike rate of 12. His complete abilities came to light in the league game and Eliminator against RCB with figures of 2 for 27 and 3 for 25 respectively.
Glenn Maxwell (Melbourne stars): Maxwell was a huge failure at IPL 2020, but that doesn’t change the fact that he is still one of the most important players in T20 cricket, having the ability to hit anywhere on the ground. Overall, Maxwell has played 82 IPL games in which he has scored 1505 runs with an impressive strike rate of 154.67 and has chosen 19 wickets. Not forgetting, the Australian off-roader found his mojo in the recently concluded T20I series against India, where he raced fast and even led his team to victory in the third T20I with a fierce half-century.
Imran Tahir (Melbourne Renegades): Imran Tahir heated the bench for most of IPL 2020, but let’s not forget the fact that he was the holder of the purple cap at IPL 2019, where he chose 26 wickets in just 17 games. The 41-year-old can still be very lethal in the shorter format and has the knack of picking up terrain at crucial stages.
Aaron Finch (Melbourne Renegades): Finch, who is captain of Melbourne Renegades, had a mediocre 2020 IPL, however the right-hander was back in shape during the recently concluded ODI and T20I series against India and also finished as the ODI series leader with 249. He runs in three games with an impressive 83.00 average.
