Do we really require an oversea allrounder in the next auction?
All my friends over here are suggesting big names like thisara perera, Steven smith, Daniel Christian, Michel clark etc
But have a look at our own, Andrew McDonald, lucky enough to play only 4 matches in last IPL season.
He has scored in an average of 23 and strike rate of 135 in the least minimal opportunity he got.
Also he has taken 5 wicket in four matches with a brilliant economy of just 6.10.
In overall t20 criket he has scored with an average of 34 and strike rate around 125. He has claimed 77 wickets with an economy of 7.6, pretty good for an allrounder.
Also he has good luck factor in Bangalore pitch just like Ravindra jadeja in Kochi ground.
But this quality t20 player has got only 4 matches in complete IPL 2012 due to good team composition strategies.
Then what will be the case of new recruits if they are bought? Probably they should also be warming the benches.
So what I think is, it is better to play him in the squad rather than buying any new players. Instead we can buy any quality Indian player to support our poor lower middle order batting, with the low amount in the purse for the auction.
What do you say guys??
