In the IPL Mega Auction, the bowlers were bought by the teams by making high bids. Harshal Patel has been bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore for 10.75 crores. Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has justified the bid of Rs 10.75 crore on Harshal Patel. He said that no batsman wants to face Harshal Patel’s bowling.
Harshal took 32 wickets in 15 matches at an average of 14.34 in the last IPL. He also became the highest wicket-taker Indian bowler in a season of IPL.
Nicholas Pooran scored 61 runs in 43 balls in the first T20 against India
Question raised on selling expensive in IPL, scored 61 runs against India
West Indies batsman Nicholas Pooran proved that Sunrisers Hyderabad did not bet wrong on him in the first T20 match against India by scoring 61 runs off 43 balls. Sunrisers Hyderabad has roped in Pooran for Rs 10.75 crore. He was one of the most expensive foreign players sold in this auction. Not only this, he also became the most expensive West Indies player to be sold in the auction.
However, questions were raised on this amount received by Pooran, as he was part of Punjab Kings last season and could only score 85 runs in 12 matches. In such a situation, the decision of the franchises started to be questioned due to the big bid on him, but this Windies batsman answered it by playing a good innings in the first T20 match against India.
