While The Hundred is set to go on until the end of August, the second phase of IPL all set to commence in the UAE next month.
The Hundred tournament has well and truly taken the world by storm. Love it or hate it, you just can’t ignore it. The new tournament has been the talk of the town for quite a while now.
While some people feel that it might destroy the lovely sport known as cricket, others perceive it to be a revolutionary move. The inaugural edition of The Hundred consists of several names. Among them, a few of them are international superstars.
While The Hundred is set to go on until the end of August, the second phase of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 all set to commence in the UAE next month. Several cricketers participating in the hundred-ball tournament are going to play the IPL as well.
Here are 5 players from The Hundred tournament to watch out for in IPL 2021
5. Rashid Khan
It would be safe to say that Rashid Khan is currently the best T20 bowler without a doubt. Every team dreams of having a player like Rashid on their side.
Add to that his hitting ability as well as his fielding skills. Thus, the match-winner from Afghanistan is a complete package. The leggie is all set to represent the Trent Rockets in The Hundred. Post this, he is all set to join the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) for the second half of IPL 2021.
SRH was arguably one of the worst teams of the first phase of IPL 2021 and was languishing at the bottom of the points table at the time when the season was suspended. If they are to reach the playoffs, they will need Rashid’s magic with the ball.
