IPL 2023: 3 Teams Who Can Target Jamie Overton In The IPL Auction.  Jamie Overton is one of the promising bowling all-rounders in the England domestic circuit. The tall and lanky pacer has featured in 88 first-class games and bagged 221 wickets at an average of 30.72. On the batting front, he has scored 2112 runs at an average of 21.33.

However, the 28-year-old has not been quite impressive in the shortest format. Though Jamie Overton has fared well with the bat, smashing 563 runs in 83 games at a strike rate of 173.23, he has been quite mediocre with the ball bagging 67 scalps at an alarming rate of 9.37.

As Jamie Overton’s performances in the T20s are not up to the mark, it is quite tough for him to find a bidder at the upcoming player auction and given the Devon-born has kept his base price INR 2 crore, it makes his chances of featuring in IPL 2023 even bleaker.

Moreover, Jamie Overton has played just one international game so far and so he does not have much experience playing on the bigger stages. In his only debut Test, he scored 97 and took 2/146 in the Test match against New Zealand.

Thus, one can witness the England all-rounder going unsold at the upcoming IPL 2023 auction. However, a few teams who have the highest purse value may bid for Jamie Overton.

Without any T20I or IPL experience, England’s pacer Jamie Overton has put himself in the INR 2 crore bracket for IPL 2023 Auction. Apart from his bowling abilities, Jamie Overton can be quite handy with the bat. However, franchises might tinker a bit before investing their INR 2 crore in the Englishman.
