3 Teams Who Can Pick S Sreesanth In IPL 2021 Auction
3. Kings XI Punjab
The Kings XI Punjab can look at Sreesanth in the mini-auction as he will add value and experience to their bowling attack. KXIP at times lacked quality with the ball last season and they will be looking to make it stronger with a purse of Rs. 53 crores in the auction. KXIP can certainly invest in Sreesanth as he looks ready and hungry to prove a point in the IPL.
The combination of Shami and Sreesanth with the new ball can be lethal if the ball swings early on in the match. Sreesanth is a wicket-taker and if KXIP picks him he can prove to be an asset for the franchisee who can contribute and help them win their first IPL title. KL Rahul and the management will be certainly discussing Sreesanth ahead of the game-changing IPL auction.
