It is worth mentioning that all of the above mentioned names had been part of IPL 2019 and were subsequently released on the back of below par performances with Lynn and Curran being exceptions.
Given the ballyhoo regarding the tournament, the campaign has already been a success for Star Sports. It will be interesting to know the final result of what people think will be the right buys for each franchise.
