Colin de Grandhomme (NZ)
With a T20 strike rate of 171.04, De Grandhomme is sure to attract some buyers. Though the all-rounder has limited international experience, he has spent more than a decade playing first-class cricket, and can get going from the word go.

He is also known for being the first player to win a Test by hitting sixes off the last two balls, against Bangladesh last month.

With a T20 strike rate of 171.04, De Grandhomme is sure to attract some buyers.

Evin Lewis (WI)
Lewis’ biggest claim to fame was his 49-ball hundred against India in the T20I at Lauderhill last year. Incidentally, the opener had replaced his idol, Chris Gayle (battling an injury), for the match.

 

After five matches, his T20I strike rate reads a more-than healthy 156.33, and he also has two T20 centuries under his belt. And like his idol, he plays T20s all over the world.

 

Tymal Mills (Eng)
For this England left-arm quick, the recent T20I series in India couldn’t have come at a better time, as it gave him a platform to impress IPL scouts.

He regularly clocked 150 kmph, bowled yorkers and slower balls well, and was a thorn in India’s flesh during the death overs.

And since he is a T20 specialist, availability won’t be an issue either. A bidding war can be expected.

Michael Klinger (Aus)
The technically-correct opener, who is part of the Australia T20I side for the ongoing series against Sri Lanka, has been in good form of late.

He smashed a match-winning 71 off 49 balls in the Big Bash final last month, and also boasts an outstanding domestic record in all formats. The 36-year-old has already played in the IPL, for Kochi Tuskers Kerala, in 2011.
