Josh Hazelwood (Chennai Super Kings)   

Josh hazelwood was the first brought in 2014 IPL by Mumbai Indians, where he did not play even a single match due to which was pulled out and now again in 2020, he is making his debut in IPL 2020 new overseas players and picked by Chennai super kings for INR 2 Crores. Furthermore, Chennai super kings just got lucky by getting the josh hazelwood at this lower price. Several other franchises should have paid a much higher price for overseas cricketers. 

However, josh hazelwood was considered the most underrated cricketer in T20, and there was a tough time for Chennai super kings when the lungi Ngidi was injured due to which they took the josh hazelwood. Still, if they both played together from Chennai super kings, then nothing is more fascinating.

Dangerous batsman ( Joshua Philippe) will be seen in IPL2020 playing for Royal challengers Bangalore. No doubt that he is having a significant role in winning the Big Bash Leagues in 2019 and having 145 strike rates. The royal challengers Bangalore is much more interested in Aron Finch, but there will Joshua Philippe due to the unavailability.

The best thing I like about Sheldon Cottrell is saluting whenever he got a wicket; the west indies cricketers known for their breathtaking performances. Kings Punjab picks up IPL debut overseas player 2020, Sheldon Cottrell, for INR 8.5 Crore. Moreover, not only mine but his personality instantly makes him the crowd favorite.

Alex Carey (Delhi Capitals)   

Alex Carey is not just a known cricketer but also an Australian Rules Footballer. In 2010 he got the chance to play in Australia Football League, but after playing for them for two years in 2012, he didn’t get a place in the team. That’s when his cricket carrier started.

I hope you still remember the world cup 2019 and the Alex Carey performance as I do; of course, Australia lost in the semi-final, but the Alex Carey had shown the magic by scoring 375 runs. The coach even mentions that Alex Carey will be the best leader for Delhi capitals due to his abilities.
