Inaugural IPL champions Rajasthan Royals have called Sussex pacer George Garton for a four-day trial ahead of the highly-anticipated auction, scheduled to be held in Kolkata on December 19.
The left-armer has earned this opportunity after an impressive T10 League campaign with Qalandars. He was the leading wicket-taker of the tournament with 13 scalps to his name.
“It’s obviously an amazing opportunity and I’m very grateful to be given the chance to go over there and show them what I can do,” Garton was quoted as saying in a press release by Sussex.
“The IPL is the biggest franchise T20 competition in the world so to have interest from a team like Rajasthan is a big confidence boost and I’m very excited to get out there,” he added.
Garton, 22, will begin his trial on December 3.
