Garton earns Rajasthan Royals trial ahead of IPL

George Garton will attend a four-day trial with Indian Premier League side Rajasthan Royals ahead of the upcoming player auction. 

The 22-year-old has earned his opportunity after an impressive T10 League campaign with Lahore Qalandars. The left-arm seamer was the competition's leading wicket-taker with 13 dismissals, and he was named Bowler of the Tournament.

Garton also enjoyed a successful 2019 campaign with Sussex, after overcoming an injury which had derailed his 2018 season, and now he can't wait to show the Royals what he can do. 

"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." said Garton. 

"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."

Garton's trial begins on 3 December, before the IPL auction takes place on 19 December.
