One of the 13 players released by the Mumbai Indians on the IPL 2023 retention day was Fabian Allen. Allen was released together with people like Tymal Mills, Riley Meredith, Daniel Sams, and Jaydev Unadkat.
However, Fabian Allen’s IPL credentials don’t look strong enough to draw in bidders this time but he is a player with very high potential. Allen has played T20 cricket in the international league and has traveled extensively. In the lone game of IPL, he played against LSG last year, he took 1 wicket for 46. He used to fill in for the regular players on the field rather frequently.
Mumbai Indians had a losing record in IPL 2022, winning just four games. Rohit Sharma, the captain, couldn’t get anything to work. He made bad decisions after bad decisions. Know the 3 teams which might target Fabian Allen during the IPL 2023 auction.
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)
Fabian Allen may be on the SRH’s radar given that there are still more than 40 crores in the purse and the franchise’s desire to rebuild its entire team. To further establish Allen, he is a fantastic defender, a useful spinner in the lower order, and a power hitter. In the upcoming season, they must devise a strategy to routinely give him games. Hyderabad already purchased him for 50 lakhs during the IPL 2020 auction.
Lucknow Super Giants (LSG)
Before the IPL 2022 season, LSG developed their lineup around a number of all-rounders. They discharged seven players after the inaugural season.
With his promising bat and ball skills and agile fielding ability, Fabian Allen can be a fantastic investment for the teams. He has to receive enough games from each of the three aforementioned organizations to demonstrate his potential.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)
One of the other IPL teams that might be considering purchasing Fabian Allen is RCB. Despite Glenn Maxwell’s dismal recent performance, they kept him. Additionally, he just underwent surgery after breaking his left leg while attending a friend’s party. In addition to potentially missing the BBL and the India series, he is out of Australia’s current series against England. As a standby, RCB can purchase Fabian Allen at the upcoming IPL 2023 auction.
