IPL 2020 Mid-Season Transfer: Perhaps, results don’t justify the way Kings XI Punjab have played in IPL 2020. They have just found ways to lose games in IPL 2020. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are two leading run-getters in the tournament. Despite that, they find themselves at the bottom of the table with a solitary win in seven games.
The middle-order woes are haunting KXIP at the moment. KXIP’s one of the biggest bets, Glenn Maxwell failed to make a mark and has let down the team in this edition. The overseas bowling department hasn’t reaped rewards either. One more loss from here could end their hopes of qualifying in the top four.
Ahead of the mid-season transfer, KXIP would look to add a few players to fill the loopholes in the side. Here’s a look at 3 players that Kings XI Punjab can target in the IPL 2020 Mid-Season Transfer:
Ahead of the 2020 IPL edition, Kings XI Punjab released David Miller after the latter spent 8 years with the franchise. He has scored 1850 runs in 79 games while playing for KXIP at a strike rate of 138.78. With KXIP failing to score runs in the middle order, the franchise might express their desire to bring back the destructive batsman.
Miller has had stellar seasons in 2013 and 2014 with the franchise but hasn’t fared too well after that. The IPL 2020 mid-season transfer could bring him back into the fold and thereby change the fortunes of KL Rahul and Co.
Dale Steyn didn’t reap any rewards in the couple of games he has played for RCB. And with Morris and Udana doing well for the team, it’s unlikely for him to make a comeback in the upcoming games.
RCB might let go of the South African pacer in the IPL 2020 mid-season transfer and Kings XI Punjab would look to cash in the opportunity.
With Sheldon Cottrell and Chris Jordan not being amongst the wickets, Dale Steyn could replace one of them in the playing eleven.
Dale Steyn hasn’t been the force that he once was, however, with years of experience under his belt, he could prove to be a difference for the side. In 94 matches, Dale Steyn has picked 97 wickets at an average of 25.41 and an economy of under 7.
IPL 2020 Mid-Season Transfer: Daniel Sams
Daniels Sams was added to Delhi Capitals’ squad as a replacement for Jason Roy. The Australian, however, is yet to play his first game in IPL 2020, thanks to brilliant bowling performances from South African pacers, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Norje, consistently.
Daniel Sams has become a prominent name in world cricket, thanks to his heroic performances in Big Bash League. The 28-year old possesses a brilliant slower ball and has great death bowling skills.
Kings XI Punjab should be eyeing the Australian fast-bowler ahead of the IPL 2020 mid-season transfer in a bid to bolster their bowling attack. Daniel Sams has taken 52 wickets in 37 T20 games at an economy of 8.13. The Australian fast-bowler hasn’t made his debut in IPL and KXIP could be the team who gives him that opportunity.
