IPL 2022 Auction: 5 Australian Players Who Might Go Unsold In Mega Auction
5. Marnus Labuschagne
Marnus Labuschagne is the first player on this list. The Australian player has kept a base price of Rs. 1 crore. Although Labuschagne is a top-rated batsman in international cricket, his expertise is limited to only Test format.
He makes into the Test team on a regular basis for Australia, however, fails to get an entry into ODIs and T20Is. Since IPL is a T20 league, buyers might not be interested to pick a Test specialist in their squads. Moreover, Labuschagne has Rs. 1 crore base price, and franchises will be unwilling to spend such a big amount for buying a Test specialist.
