Five players who can lead the 9th IPL team
The latest hot news around the Indian Premier League is the addition of a ninth franchise to the league. Even though nothing has been confirmed officially, the news is going viral around the game.
The talk is that it will be a franchise based on the city, Ahmedabad and the tender for the new franchise might happen just after Diwali. In case the news is true, there will be a mega auction for sure and that will result in big changes in every franchise.
In these circumstances, the new franchise will need to have an icon player to lead their side. Here are some expected players who can lead the new franchise.
Ajinkya Rahane is one of the iconic Indian players without any doubt. He is with Delhi Capitals at the moment. But there is no concrete place for him in the franchise. He missed almost all the games in the first half of the tournament.
In case of a mega auction, he will not be retained by the franchise for such prices. So the right-handed batsman will be available for the draft and he can be roped into the new franchise. In the past also, he led the Rajasthan Royals.
