    Levi, Kevin O'Brien and Tim Southee on Pune radar.

    A wicketkeeper, a middle-order batsman and an allrounder top the buying list of the Pune Warriors, who have started knocking on the doors of rival franchises to explore any possible trading opportunities. At the moment the Warriors have to fill three slots for international players having released Australia wicketkeeper Tim Paine (injured) and bought out West Indies fast bowler Jerome Taylor's contract. But they have only a week left before the trading window - opened specially for them in the aftermath of the truce signed by the BCCI and Sahara, who own the franchise - ends on February 29.

    It is understood that names such as young South Africa batsman Richard Levi and Ireland allrounder Kevin O'Brien are among the players the Warriors might consider. Levi catapulted himself into contention after he blasted the fastest T20I hundred against New Zealand on February 19. As for O'Brien, who went unsold in the IPL's supplementary auction on February 4, insiders reveal he could still be a prospect.

    Tim Southee, the New Zealand fast bowler, who played last year as a replacement player for the Chennai Super Kings, could get a look-in, too, especially if Allan Donald, the Warriors' bowling coach, backs him. Donald spent a few months as bowling consultant with New Zealand till the World Cup last year and was impressed by Southee's aggression.

    Southee can thump it just as far. And pretty sure the other two can't bowl 85mph reverse swing yorkers.


    Southee got a 30 odd ball 80 in England last summer.

    I'll go with Southee, he can bowl and bat down the order. Remember watching him against Australia where he smoked Australian top class bowlers.

    Levi just scored the fastest T20 hundred, Indian pitches you need a good batsman. Bowlers are gonna get thrased in IPL.

    I think so. Maybe he got drafted again to some other team. Don't ask me man, I don't follow IPL. Just saying, seeing him from Big Bash League, he will do good in the IPL as well.

    Bowlers are in short demand, therefore, are more valuable IMO.
