Another big trade news is that Lockie Ferguson And Rahmanullah Gurbaz Traded From Gujarat Titans To Kolkata Knight Riders. New Zealand fast bowler Lockie Ferguson, who was playing for Gujarat Titans, will now play for Kolkata Knight Riders, making this season’s IPL even more exciting.
During his 13 matches for Gujarat Titans- winner of the last IPL under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya, Lockie Ferguson picked up 12 wickets, including a 4-wicket haul (4-28) – a critical performance. Gujarat Titans acquired Ferguson for Rs 10 crore in the 2022 IPL auction. He will play for Kolkata Knight Riders in the upcoming TATA IPL 2023. Gujrat Titans have traded him to KKR – his former team.
The trading window has become more engaging and tempting as KKR has acquired Afghanistan wicketkeeper-batter Rahmanullah Gurbaz from Gujarat Titans. Despite replacing England batter Jason Roy in the 2022 TATA IPL, Gurbaz did not play any games. He is a young player and will show his batting and wicket-keeping class in the coming TATA IPL 2023.
Gurbaz scored 896 runs in his T20 career with an average of 25.60 and a decent strike rate of 138.27. So, he will be a crucial player to watch in the next season of IPL.
As the trade window is open now, the RCB has already traded Jason Behrendorff to Mumbai Indians – the most successful IPL franchise. On the other hand, there is a chance that Pollard will be released by the Mumbai Indians soon and will be open for trade in the coming mini-auction on 23 December in Kochi.
