Who Is The Cheapest Player In IPL Auction 2021?
Indian Premier League will auction 292 cricketers including 164 Indians, 125 overseas and 3 from Associated Nations on February 18 in Chennai. While a total of 1,114 cricketers had registered for the auction but the list was prepared after the 8 franchises finished shortlisting of players.
Players in the highest price bracket of Rs. 2 crore
A total of 10 cricketers including two Indian – Harbhajan Singh and Kedar Jadhav – and eight overseas players – Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Shakib Al Hasan, Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Liam Plunkett, Jason Roy and Mark Wood – are expected to get the highest price in auction.
A total of 10 cricketers including two Indian – Hanuma Vihari and Umesh Jadav are available for grab at the base price of Rs. 1 crore.
What price could Dawid Malan get?
A top-ranking batsman in international T20, Dawid Malan will get the base price of Rs. 1 crore. But the eyes will be set on the auction of Smith and Shakib that are asking the top price of Rs. 2 crore. Smith was earlier with Rajasthan Royals and Shakib has served his suspension for breaching anti-corruption code. Both are good players but Malan will be the hot pick this season.
Future of Nayan Doshi
The oldest cricketer available for auction, Nayan Doshi (42) is the son of former Indian cricketer, Dilip Doshi. Nayan has been a cricketer throughout his life. A spin baller, Nayan has played 70 first-class and 74 List A matches and removed 166 and 64 wickets respectively. A regular in English County and previous player of Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals, Nayan is asking a price of Rs. 20 lack.
