The much-awaited IPL 2020, which will be the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League, is going to begin soon. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will host the entire IPL 13 between 19th September and 10th November 2020.
Since last March, the world cricket was stopped due to the pandemic, which also forced to postpone the IPL 2020 (it was earlier scheduled between 29th March and 24th May 2020). Recently, the game has been restarted globally and the IPL franchises are also ready to begin their journey in the IPL 2020.
Though all the franchises have almost sorted out their full squad ahead of the IPL 2020, still they can look at some other players for the replacement purpose in the late period of the forthcoming cash-rich tournament.
Here we are talking about the top five cricketers who can earn the late call-up in the IPL 2020 as the replacement
The 28-year-old Caribbean all-rounder Roston Chase is currently in great form in every format. After winning the Player of the Series award in the Test series in England (England cricketer Stuart Broad also won the Player of the Series award in that Test series), Chase continued the same form in the recently concluded CPL 2020.
Serving for St Lucia Zouks in the CPL 2020, Chase scored 225 runs (average 37.50) and also took 9 wickets in 11 matches. During that tournament, he scored two fifties, including his best T20 knock 66 runs.
Though he hasn’t very high experience in the T20 cricket (16 matches) and also has no experience in the IPL, his latest form is enough to bring a new opportunity in the IPL. Due to the same ownership in the CPL and IPL, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) can obviously add him in the squad during the IPL 2020 as a foreigner replacement. Also, other IPL franchises can look at him similarly.
