Five players who can lead the 9th IPL team
Sunrisers Hyderabad right-handed batsman Kane Williamson will be another key player the new franchise might look for in the overseas quota. He is a proven match-winner and captain in the league.
In the case of a mega auction, there are high chances for not retaining the New Zealand batsman by his franchise. As every franchise can retain a maximum quota of two overseas players, Kane Williamson will be available for the draft by the new franchise.
Most probably the new team will be given a chance to draft three players ahead of the mega auction. In such circumstances, there are high chances for roping in Kane Williamson and making him as the captain.
