Hayden picks two best pacers and spinners for IPL 2020
Former Australia batsman Matthew Hayden has named two pacers and two spinners who he thinks will be the standout bowler in the upcoming edition of Indian Premier League (IPL).
Hayden has mentioned the names of Sunrisers Hyderabad fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mumbai Indians pacer Jasprit Bumrah and backs them to be the best two bowlers in this year’s IPL.
“I feel the experienced seam bowlers will always be a threat. Bhuvneshwar Kumar obviously has been incredible in the IPL. And from the Mumbai Indians point of view, who can go past one of the finest bowlers in world cricket, i.e. Jasprit Bumrah. I think he is as good as anyone on their day,”
Hayden said on the Star Sports Show on Cricket Connected.
And in terms of spin options, the former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) cricketer Hayden has picked the CSK duo- veteran Harbhajan Singh and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja.
“I think you have got a handful of spinners as well who can look to dominate the play,” Hayden said. “Even the old boys can do the job. I am thinking of guys like Harbhajan Singh, who didn’t play a lot of cricket last year but still a wily off-spinner who can have a go. “Jadeja from CSK, some of the leggies as well who have got a big chance to get amongst the wickets this year.”
The 13th edition of IPL is scheduled to take place on September 19 this month.
