All-rounders play a huge part in the modern game and the IPL auction 2021 was the best example of it where the franchises were eager to get quality all-rounders into their team. Chris Morris’s ability with the bat lower down the order earned him the tag for the most expensive player in the IPL Auction history for a price of 16.25 crores surpassing Yuvraj Singh.
A top 6 batsman who can bowl 4 overs is a great asset to any team. The game has come across legendary all-rounders with the likes of Ian Botham, Kapil Dev, Jacques Kallis and it is time for the younger generation to step up.
The all-rounders can have a massive impact on the game in both the departments and provide an added advantage to their team.
IPL 2021: Rating All 8 Teams On The Basis Of Their All-Rounders
8. Punjab Kings – 7/10
Punjab Kings looks like a team that doesn’t have to bank on their all-rounders to come good. The only quality all-rounder they have roped in the IPL Auction 2021 is Moises Henriques while Deepak Hooda, Shahrukh Khan can roll their arm over for the team if needed. They have let go of James Neesham who can finish off the innings at 6 as well as bowls the medium pace which wasn’t the best option
Chris Jordan is another good option for the all-rounder spot but is more of a bowler who can bat a bit. Punjab Kings are most likely to pack their bowling with 2 overseas quicks and 2 overseas top-order batsmen which will mean that if the main bowler has an off day, they will require one or two overs from the likes of Chris Gayle or the Indian middle order.
