Australian legend Shane Warne has backed the leg spinner Peter Hatzoglou to bag big money in the upcoming IPL auction due to his impressive performances in the BBL 2020-2021. Peter Hatzoglou has been one of the finds of this BBL as the youngster took 16 wickets in 12 games at an economy rate of 8.48. The young leggie will be happy to have grabbed the attention of one of the greatest spinners of all time, Shane Warne.
Playing for Melbourne Renegades who haven’t performed well in this season, Peter Hatzoglou has managed to make merry with some good outings with the ball. In a team comprising of stars like Aaron Finch, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Nabi, and Rilee Rossouw, he will be privileged to gain a wealth of experience from this season.
He was playing third-grade cricket at the Melbourne University three years back and to attain this stature he has really worked hard.
IPL Franchisees Might Bag Peter Hatzoglou Soon
Shane Warne had put his weight behind Peter Hatzoglou to go for a hefty amount of money in this IPL auction for the 2021 season. He told Franchises will be looking for a player like him and the slowish tracks at India could be in his favour.
Warner also admitted that the youngster doesn’t spin the ball so much, but gives a lot of fizz into the pitch at good speeds with the occasional one turning which makes him dangerous.
“I think there would be a lot of interest in Hatzoglou around the world. Especially in the IPL and tournaments like that. I bet you he gets picked up in the IPL, the way he’s bowled. A lot of the franchises over there will look at him and go ‘Wow, he could be a real handful in India,’” Shane Warne was quoted as saying on Fox Sports.
“I’ve been impressed with this guy. I think the way he bowls, the way he bowls it into the pitch, he gives it a fearful fizz in his hand before he bowls,” he added.
Melbourne Renegades To End At The Bottom Of The Table
Melbourne Renegades will be trying to end the season with a win in their last league match against Hobart Hurricanes on Tuesday. With only 13 points on board, they have no chance of qualifying for the Big Bash League 2020-2021 playoffs and have lost 10 of their 13 games so far. They will be hoping to change the tides around in their next season.
The only positive limelight in this season for Melbourne Renegades has been the impressive performances of youngster Peter Hatzoglou who is expected to have a great future.
