The right-handed batsman from England is one of the key players to watch out for in this year’s auction. At the moment, the batsman is out of the England squad due to some conflict of terms between both parties. But he is fully available for the T20 leagues. 

His aggressive approach as an opening batsman will be the pick on him. He is in terrific form in recent times. Recently, he scored a ton for Sydney Thunders against Sydney Sixers. In 2018, he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad. But unfortunately, he didn’t get it right there. Hopefully, he will meet the expectations in this season.
