In the IPL 2021 auction, the 23-year-old Australian fast bowler Wes Agar can be a special target at least for some franchises due to his recent performances in the Big Bash League 2020/21.
Wes Agar is the younger brother of Australian left-arm spinner Ashton Agar. Unlike his elder brother, Wes dominates with his fast bowling. He is one of the growing up fast bowlers in Australian cricket, who won the Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year 2020.
In the Big Bash League 2020/21, Adelaide Strikers’ fast bowler Wes Agar got 22 wickets in 15 matches, including one four-wicket haul. He has already taken 41 wickets in 32 T20 matches.
In the IPL 2021 auction, he can be in huge demand of some teams, who are searching for overseas fast bowlers.
IPL 2021 Auction: 3 teams which can target Wes Agar
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)
The three-time runners-up Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are desperate to end their trophy drought soon. So, they are currently busy to restructure their squad. Currently, ahead of the IPL 2021 auction, RCB need three more overseas cricketers.
On the other hand, they have three pacers (Navdeep Saini, Mohammed Siraj and Kane Richardson) and two pace-bowling all-rounders (Daniel Sams and Harshal Patel). While they need to add more fast bowlers in the squad, young Australian fast bowler Wes Agar can be a good option for them.
