Australian speedster Nathan Coulter Nile who had a decent season with the Defending Champions in the 13th edition of Indian Premier League. Even in the final match, he had a good time and had picked couple of wickets and kept the momentum of the team. Despite of having a sober season, Mumbai Indians released the pacer from the squad ahead of IPL-2021.
His release may be due to the regular fitness issue he faced in the IPL as well as in the BBL which led him to sit in the dug-out.
Nathan Coulter Nile was bought by defending champions for 8Cr where he picked 5 wickets from 7 matches. So with his release there are three teams who could target this lethal pacer for their franchise in the coming auction.
1] Royal Challengers Bangalore
The franchise who are facing the most difficult pace attack in the death overs from last couple of years. In the last season, team has got only good services from Morris and Navdeep. But now if team buys Nathan Coulter Nile then they can create a depth and a good option of bowling attack in the death overs.
The franchise has already released Isuru Udana, Dale Steyn and Umesh Yadav from the squad which keen depicts that team could go for Nathan.
2] Rajasthan Royals
They desperately need a experience pacer in their squad as we had seen having lone warrior Jofra Archer in the squad can’t make team to reach the positive edge, he needs support and Nathan can be one of them. His economy of 7.92 in the BBL can assure a better competent attack for the franchise ahead of IPL-2021.
3] Delhi Capitals
They has a experience and lethal pace attack compromised of Rabada, Nortje and Chris Woakes in the squad. The main issue for them is that during IPL, ECB can call them for national duty. So having a back up in the team will assure them strengthen the team core element and Nathan is one of them who can bring the pace to them.
