Chris Morris is a great option of all-rounder for each teams in the IPL. He was bought by RCB for INR 10 crores.
Having a poor season with the bat last year where he scored only 34 runs, Morris was excellent with the ball.The all-rounder took 11 wickets in 9 games at a economy of 6.63. however, he was unbelievably released by RCB ahead of IPL 2021 season.
Here are these 3 teams that would like to have Chris Morris in their sides in the 2021 auction.
1. Kings XI Punjab:
KXIP had a horrible start to their IPL 2020 season, losing 6 of their first 7 games. They won their next five games on the trot, but couldn’t find a place in the playoffs.
One of the main problems was a lack of finisher with the bat and quality death bowling.Chris Morris can fulfil the role what likes of Sheldon Cottrell and Chris Jordan couldn’t perform. He can be the ideal partner to the likes of Mohammed Shami and could also be the finisher KXIP have been missing.With the highest purse of INR 53.20 crores remaining and 5 overseas slots available, KXIP are front-runners to seal the Chris Morris deal in the IPL 2021 auction.
2. Chennal Super Kings:
CSK failed to qualify for the playoffs last season for the first time in their IPL history. They were poor with the bat, but one of the main problems that they have no good seamers who became successful in the death overs. Shardul,. Ngidi both failed in the death overs. Other hand Dwayne Bravo, Sam Curran and Deepak Chahar, they didn’t have someone who could take wickets regularly and could also be economical. This is where Chris Morris fits the bill for CSK.
Morris could easily be the strike bowler for the three-time IPL champions and also could help Ravindra Jadeja in finishing off CSK’s innings with the bat. But CSK has only one overseas slot available. Thus it will be interesting to see if they go for Chris Morris in the IPL 2021 auction or to any others.
3. Delhi capitals :
Delhi Capitals had released Chris Morris after the IPL 2019 season. However, last season they missed his absence as they not only miss a proper finisher but also needed depth in their bowling line up. Morris’ presen in indiace could give extra power to kagiso Rabada and Nortje in making the .DC have two overseas slots available and INR 12.90 crores left in their kitty. With all-rounders like Chris Woakes available, it will be interesting to see if they add Chris Morris to their roaster ahead of IPL 2021.
