Former England skipper Michael Vaughan has backed Jonny Bairstow to crack the Indian Premier League deal in the next season. Bairstow scored 84 runs from just 24 balls in the ongoing T10 league to attract all the eyeballs. The talisman right-handed smashed eight fours and half-a-dozen sixes in his blistering knock. In fact, the England linchpin scored his runs at a strike rate of staggering 350.

Thus, Jonny Bairstow was also awarded the Man of the Match. Subsequently, Kerala Knights were able to win by seven wickets as they chased down the target of 124 runs. Bengal Tigers had made 123 in their ten overs after Sunil Narine had scored 52 runs from 25 balls.
