The World Cup is over, now cricket fans are eagerly waiting for IPL 2024. The auction for the IPL 2024 season will be held in Dubai on December 19. This time the auction will be held in only one day. Players who performed well in the recently concluded ODI World Cup may see huge demand in the IPL auction. All 10 IPL teams will be in the race to buy World Cup star players.
These 5 foreign players, who performed well in the ODI World Cup, may get a big IPL contract this time.
Before the World Cup, Rachin Ravindra had no experience of batting in the top order in international cricket. But after scoring a century against England in the first home match of the World Cup, Ravindra kept getting success. During this period, he scored 578 runs in 10 matches with the help of 3 centuries. Ravindra made a new record of scoring most runs in the debut World Cup. There may be a race between teams to buy Rachin Ravindra in the IPL 2024 auction.
This 23-year-old bowler, playing his first World Cup, left behind experienced bowlers like Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi. Coetzee was the leading wicket-taker for South Africa in a World Cup edition, taking 20 wickets.
Coetzee’s dangerous pace made him the leading wicket-taker in the middle overs. In the middle overs, Coetzee took 15 wickets at an economy rate of 6.16 and was the second most successful bowler after Adam Zampa in this phase. Coetzee also played some good innings with the bat. Gerald can prove to be an important player for any IPL team.
3 Daryl Mitchell
This Kiwi middle order batsman played both anchor and attacking roles. He scored two centuries, both against India and both times took the team to big scores despite losing two wickets early. Mitchell also scored against spin at a strike rate of 106.84, which makes him an excellent option in Indian conditions.
4. Dilshan Madushanka
The left-handed Sri Lankan pacer emerged as perhaps his team’s only best hope in a disappointing World Cup performance. Mudshanka was the third most successful bowler of the tournament with 21 wickets in 9 matches and was particularly impressive with the new ball. Madushanka took 9 wickets in the first powerplay while spending 5.13 runs per over.
This 23-year-old pacer has been in demand in the IPL before and many teams may show interest in buying him in this time’s IPL auction.
The Afghanistan all-rounder can follow the footsteps of compatriots Rashid Khan and Rahmanullah Gurbaz in getting an IPL contract. With a World Cup score of 353 runs and 7 wickets, Umarzai made a mark as an all-rounder. He can contribute with both bat and ball. There may be a race among IPL teams to buy this bowling all-rounder with the ability to rotate the strike and hit long hits in the middle order.
