Four Teams that would like to acquire Josh Hazlewood in the IPL 2024 Auction

Josh Hazlewood was released by Bangalore at the Indian T20 League retentions just before the auction on December 19, 2023. The Aussie right-arm pacer could be the potential target for various franchises in the upcoming auction. 

The expectation of the Indian T20 League auction has been set on fire with many notable pliers released by various franchises. Some of the decisions like that of Josh Hazlewood stunned the fans. The seasoned pacer has 35 wickets in 27 Indian T20 League matches and is anticipated to be the pick of the bidders in the forthcoming auction. 

Let's talk about four teams, who could be competing for Josh Hazlewood on the Auction Day.

A. Kolkata Franchise:

The two times champion is now again backed by their legendary captain Gautam Gambhir and are the front-runners to sweep away the Hazlewood deal. After releasing the likes of pace sensations Tim Southee and Lockie Ferguson, the side needs to concentrate on their pace options. In this situation, a dominant pace bowler will seamlessly fit in the lineup. With the ability to bring regular breakthroughs, Hazlewood might be the missing piece of the puzzle Kolkata needs to excel.

B. Lucknow Franchise:

The two-year-old franchise bid farewell to Avesh Khan and they are now in search of a reliable pacer. Hazlewood’s consistency and experience could make him an ideal replacement for Avesh Khan. The Aussie pacer can make the side more stable and increase their chances of succeeding to get their hands on the trophy next season.

C. Punjab Franchise:

Punjab will look forward to creating a pace trio with Hazlewood. Arshdeep Singh and Kagiso Rabada along with the Aussie pacer will be a force to be reckoned with in the Indian T20 League 2024.

D. Bangalore Franchise:

This may be a strategy for the Bangalore side and they may be reentering the race to secure Hazlewood’s services. They can rely on the services of the World Champion at a potentially lower price in the auction.
