3 Pace All-rounders who can force Franchises break their bank at the IPL 2024 Auction
The most exciting part of an IPL season is the auction, and the coming 17th edition will see its auction in a couple of weeks. The IPL 2024 auction is all set to take place on December 19 in Dubai. More than 1150 players have registered for it, and all ten teams have an extra 5 crore to spend. Hence, we might see some record-breaking deals once again.
The last auction saw all-rounders making some big money: Sam Curran (18.5 crore), Cameron Green (17.5 crore), and Ben Stokes (16.25 crore). These three pace-bowling all-rounders were the highlights. And now, there are some more exciting all-rounders who will feature at the auction. Here we will talk about three pace bowling all-rounders who can make the IPL franchise break their bank at the auction.
Three Pace-bowling all-rounders who will be in high demand at the IPL 2024 Auction
3. Dwaine Pretorius
Former South African all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius will be there to pick at the auction. Pretorius was part of the CSK in 2022 and 2023, and MS Dhoni used him as a pinch-hitter at the top sometimes. He is a pretty smart cricketer who contributes with both the bat and the ball. Franchise will look out for him at the auction.
2. David Wiese
Veteran all-rounder David Wiese, who has played for South Africa and Namibia, has established himself as a match-winner in the shorter format. He has played in three seasons of the IPL. In 18 matches, he has taken 16 wickets and scored 148 runs at 29.63. Wiese is a good striker of the ball, and KKR released him. He is back at the auction, and there will be a few teams that would like to have him on their teams.
2. Jason Holder
Jason Holder needs no introduction to the game. The West Indian all-rounder is a match-winner wherever he has played. He was part of the RR setup and was released ahead of the IPL 2024 auction. Holder has played 46 IPL games and taken 53 wickets at an economy rate of 8.81. With his skillset, he might get a big deal from the IPL teams.
