Sam Curran – Kings XI Punjab
Sam Curran could definitely perform much better than he did last time. Nine wickets in ten games at an average of 32.30 is not what he is famous for. But his ability to deliver with both bat and ball implicates that he could be useful in the upcoming season as well.
Chris Lynn – Kolkata Knight Riders
Chris Lynn proved to be a valuable player for Kolkata Knight Riders last time. He scored 405 runs at an average of 31.15 with a strike rate of 139.66 and the numbers do not justify his release from the franchise at all. Kolkata Knight Riders do not have an unsettled batting combination on the top and releasing an opener isn’t a wise decision.
