With his all-around performance in the second T20I against India, the flamboyant southpaw Colin Munro is expected to get sold for a high price in the upcoming edition of the IPL auction for the 2018 season. Munro fascinated one and all with his hitting capabilities in the Kanpur ODI and Rajkot T20I.
Along with his deceptive bowling abilities, Munro can be a lethal all-rounder when it comes to the IPL. Also, the fact that Munro now an experienced cricketer in terms of franchise cricket, due to his experience in the Carribean Premier League (CPL) with the Trinbago Knight Riders and with the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League (BBL) might come in handy for the Kiwi.
Asper the reports in TOI, IPL analyst said, “There are not many cricketers in modern day cricket who can strike the ball cleanly from the word go. He is fearless and Munro is known for his pyrotechnics. He will definitely be sought-after during the auction. I don’t know if he will be in the top five buys but he will certainly be a match-winner that every team wants.”
Colin Munro was earlier bought by Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders but did not get enough chances to prove his worth with only four appearances to his name. He was later released by KKR ahead of the 2017 season.
Munro already has a couple of T20I century to his name. The recent one came against the men in blue during the 2nd T20I where he thrashed the star-studded bowling lineup of the hosts through his unbeaten innings of 109. His knock helped the Kiwis making a come back into the 3-match T20I series by equalizing the series at 1-1 as the decider would be played on Tuesday, 7th November.
