Daryl Mitchell is one of the gutsiest players in international cricket at present. It doesn’t matter what the situation is but if he is there on the crease then his team is alive in the contest. The most recent example was his knock in the World Cup semi-final when the target was huge but he still gave his everything. In this article, we will take a look at 3 teams that can target Daryl Mitchell in the upcoming auction.
Punjab Kings would be one of the most suitable destinations for Daryl Mitchell. Mithcell generally plays in the middle but he is also flexible in terms of batting position. Punjab needs an experienced batter like Daryl Mitchell in the batting order to give the required solidity. The batting performance in the last season from Punjab was shambolic and Mitchell’s addition would uplift the batting order.
Kolkata Knight Riders
KKR has been struggling in the past few seasons because of the nonperformance of their middle order. Players like Shreyas Iyer, Rinku Singh, and Andre Russel are present in the squad but it would be better for them to have quality backups. Both Shreyas Iyer and Andre Russel have struggled in the past because of injury concerns and that is the reason why players like Daryl Mitchell would be a good bet. Mitchell can be a solid figure in the middle order who can take responsibility when some of the regular starters are not available.
Delhi Capitals is another team that needs experienced and in-form batters in the middle order. Rishabh Pant is coming back after a long injury and there is no certainty about his fitness. Marcus Stoinis has been going through a horrible run of form and can’t be relied on considering his current form. Daryl Mitchell would be an ideal addition to this batting order which is looking heavy at the top but precarious in the middle.
