The 12th edition of Vivo IPL which is expected to start from March 23 and is believed to play in India itself despite elections to be held during that period. The 2019 IPL auction had taken place back in December 2018 where around 60 players were sold where many players will be making their debuts.
So let us take you’ll to some of the Predicted IPL debutants who will make their foremost use of their deal with their respective franchises.
1) Shimron Hetmyer
The left-handed Carribean youngster was the third highest run scorer in his home’s CPL with 440 runs took his team Guyana Amazon Warriors to the finals.
He has been bought by the most loved and fan-followed franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore for 4.2 crores where five teams were chasing the West Indian player. He can be a solid middle-order for RCB to smash biggies into the crowd, according to our IPL match predictions he will be one of the players to be in the top 10 run-scorer board.
2) Varun Chakravarthy:
The 27-year-old got his recognition for his leg-breakers in the Tamil Nadu Premier League with impressing the IPL owners, which made him get a big contract, he was the highest bid this year among all players as he was sold to Kings XI Punjab for 8.4 crores. He will join alongside skipper Ashwin and Afghan spinner Mujeeb-Ur- Rahman as the third spinner of the team. As per the cricket prediction this bowler will play a prominent role in Kings XI Punjab squad.
3) Jonny Bairstow
The Yorkshire batsman is all set to play his first season for Sunrisers Hyderabad. The Englishman has been outstanding for England’s National side in Test’s and ODI’s; he possesses an overall strike rate of 125.71 from 22 innings he has played in T20 Internationals till day.
His inclusion in the squad means SRH gets not only a new wicket-keeper but also an option for the opening slot after releasing his countrymen Alex Hales and trading Shikhar Dhawan to Delhi Capitals.
4) Prabhsimran Singh
The Patiala-born youngster could not have expected for more as he saw a bidding war for himself between RCB and MI to have the wicket-keeper in their side, but both were unsuccessful to take him as Kings XI bought him for the price of 480 lakhs.
The 18-year old can complete the role of a full-time wicket-keeper in the team as the team lacked one last season. He is the cousin of the under-19 bowler Anmolpreet Singh who was also picked by Mumbai Indians in the auction.
5) Jason Behrendorff
The left-arm pacer is promising with his pace and swing as he makes trouble for the batsmen to read his bowling. He is generally known as a T20 specialist bowler for Australia.
Currently, he is leading the bowling attack for Australia in the absence of Mitchell Starc and bowled a dominating spell off 10-2-39-2 in the first One-Day against India.
He was last year bought by Mumbai Indians, but unfortunately, he could not play a single game as he suffered a back problem and was ruled out from the tournament, yet Mumbai Indians retained him in 2018 and we expect him to open the new ball and is also predicted to be among the top 5 bowlers list in terms of wicket-takers.
6) Shivam Dubey
Shivam Dubey is a right-arm bowler and a left-handed batter. Dubey gave his reputation a massive uplift in the last year with some big hitting strokes in the Mumbai T20 league, followed by his consistent performances in the Ranji Trophy.
He has hit five sixes in an over twice in his career, first against Pravin Tambe in the Mumbai T20 league, and next against Swapnil Singh in the ongoing Ranji Trophy. His impressive figures of 3 for 29 helped Mumbai win the Vijay Hazare Trophy almost after 11 years. He has been bought by RCB for five crores. This predicted bowler addition of this bowler in RCB batting line up will make batting lineup stronger.
7) Sam Curran:
The English all-rounder has already shown his potential in test cricket and was one of the reasons for India’s defeat at England by 1-4. Curran has previously exhibited immense promise, especially in the shorter formats of the game, he was one of the 13 players bought by KXIP this year. Curran will provide importance to Punjab with his all-around performance this year.
8) Joe Denly
The 32-year-old batting all-rounder got his International call back at the end of the last year to play against Sri Lanka for the only T20 and was awarded as the Man of the Match for his outstanding bowling spell grabbing 4 wickets while conceding only 19 runs.
The England player plays major T20 leagues across the world and also has a Big Bash contract with Sydney Sixers, as in Big Bash you can only have two overseas players in your team, and that is a great achievement for any Non-Australian player to play in Big Bash. He will be representing Shahrukh Khan’s Knight Riders in this season.
9) Harry Gurney:
His whirly left-arm action may look ungainly and also has lots of variations which he uses at crucial moments to pick big scalps. He has much experience in Domestic English tournaments played in different county clubs like Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire(currently).
He also has a Big Bash Contract with Melbourne Renegades this year. He joins Kolkata Knight Riders to and will be considered as their strike bowler for his side.

The Lancashire all-rounder has been bought by Rajasthan Royals to replace Darcy Short and will be a prominent opener for the Royals. He has not played many International matches for England but holds lots of experience of Domestic Cricket and has played many games for Lancashire a county club in England. This contract will be an opportunity for him to show his heroics on Indian pitches and get Featured back to England’s National side.
