IPL 2020 Auctions: One Player Each Team Should Target
Mumbai Indians – Eoin Morgan
The defending champions Mumbai Indians all but have their bases covered. However, if they are to strengthen their team, they need a strong middle-order batter. The team has Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock at the top of the order and they have all-rounders to add the finishing touches. However, they lack the firepower in the middle and England’s limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan can help fill in the gaps. Morgan has the skills to turn the match on its head and he can be a great choice for the reigning champions.
The southpaw batsman had scored 374 runs in the 10 World Cup matches at an average of 41.22 and a staggering strike rate of 111.08. Morgan’s knock of 148 runs off just 71 balls against Afghanistan is still fresh in the hearts of every cricket lover. The England skipper scored one fifty and one century in the ODI showpiece.
The left-hander also has the experience of 52 IPL matches and his recent form is going to be a bonus. Morgan amassed 341 runs in nine Vitality T20 Blast matches at an average of 42.62 and scored with a blistering strike rate of 168.81 while playing for Middlesex.
Morgan has the skills to hit the ground running and he can easily be one of the four overseas players with Lasith Malinga, Quinton de Kock, and Kieron Pollard being the other three in the final XI.
