Perhaps, the only positive for the Windies on their tour to India would be the emergence of Oshane Thomas. He has been pretty decent in the ranks for their side and troubled Indian batsmen with his express pace. Meanwhile, his incredible talent might fetch him some decent bucks in the auctions for upcoming IPL 2019. Here we figure out three teams which could sign Oshane Thomas in the upcoming auction.
3 teams which could sign Oshane Thomas in the upcoming auction
3. Delhi Daredevils:
Yes, they badly need a fast bowler to deliver the goods. Though they have got the likes of Trent Boult and Pat Cummins in their side, they still lack the quality in the side. Pat Cummins, being the injury-prone, the franchise can’t keep their plans on him.
DD had signed Junior Dala at the end of the season in the previous edition. However, he hasn’t performed well enough to secure his position. All in all, Oshane Thomas might fit in the plans of Delhi Daredevils if opted for him.
2. Kolkata Knight Riders:
Perhaps, there would be no other team, who suffered like Kolkata Knight Riders in the previous season. Their fast bowlers injured one by one on a regular basis to affect the team dearly. With Starc and Johnson mostly being unavailable, they would go with Oshane Thomas for the upcoming edition.
Meanwhile, Dinesh Karthik, the skipper of KKR also had a close look at him. With the team is in search of a quality fast bowler, they might go with the well-built youngster this time.
1. Royal Challengers Bangalore:
Of course, Royal Challengers Bangalore would tempt to go with him. The previous edition was a disaster for them, who failed to get their bowling combination right. Despite having the quality batting lineup in the ranks, the lack of performance by the bowlers saw them finishing on the bottom half of the table.
Virat Kohli also showered words of praise on Oshane Thomas in the recent press meeting, which would certainly push the RCB masterminds to work on him. Hopefully, Thomas would fill that slot for RCB.
