It’s a ruthless format for the bowlers but if you can manage to do wonders with the ball then glory is all yours.

There’s no better pacer than him in modern day cricket than him. Starc is about great pace and an even greater accuracy. Among pacers he would be the first choice bowler for every franchise and the team that gets him would feel that they’ve got a jackpot.
- Trent Boult

He’s another destructive pacer and he has had a great role in New Zealand’s success in the limited overs format. After Starc, this Kiwi speedster would be the hottest pick among world-class pacers.
- Josh Hazlewood

Again he’s one of the finest limited overs bowlers in modern day cricket. Hazlewood is the 5th ranked bowler in ODI rankings and would be a very vital addition to whichever team he goes.

The tall pacer from South Africa is very accurate and very lethal. He’s been one of the pillars of South Africa’s great success in the limited overs format. He would be another hot pick for the teams in the auctions.
