Most expensive picks of IPL 2021!
All of you are familiar with one of the most significant IPL domestic leagues in history. The IPL 2021 auction was recently held, and many players were shuffled to other teams and got their dream value. In this season, the most expensive player was Chris Morris, whose base price was 75,00,000 and was sold for 16,25.00,000. Rajasthan Royals managed to purchase this player, and his last team was royal challengers Bangalore.
His career was fantastic, and he took many crucial wickets for his team in the past. The IPL auction was done in the past 2021, and here are some of the top picks from the Indian premier league 2021 auction, which was done in January. After talking about Chris Morris, who is the most expensive player in the tournament, we will discuss Kyle Jamieson, who is a bowler and he is sold for 15,00,00,000 and is the second most expensive player.
Kyle is a professional bowler and also a batsman. Overall, it can be said that he is a good all-rounder. The player is sold for royal challengers Bangalore, and it is believed that he is the perfect replacement for Chris Morris. The next player, which is also purchased by the same team, is Glenn Maxwell. he is sold for 14.25 crores which is a considerable amount.
Maxwell played for Kings XI Punjab, but unfortunately, he was out of form. He was sent to auction by the team Punjab and is purchased by RCB. Let’s hope for his excellent form and a great IPL this season. Maxwell is admitted to the team as an all-rounder. He bowls spin and bats with his left arm and has scored many runs in the past. He is a gun fielder and can take some of the difficult catches to dismiss informed batsmen.
Moving further in the list, Kings XI Punjab has purchased the most expensive bowler Jhye Richardson. His price in the current auction is rupees 14 crores, and he is new in IPL, i.e., he has no experience of playing IPL. Although he is highly talented, in my opinion, there were more options which could replace him in this value. He has started his practice for the IPL and will announce his arrival with some massive wickets.
Krishnappa Gowtham is the next all-rounder who Chennai Super Kings purchases in the auction. The player has been sold for 9.25 crores and has played exceptionally well in the last season for KXIP. Many teams bid on him, but Chennai successful got this player. MS Dhoni knows very well how to use the players, and he might have his plan ready.
The next player is overseas and is taken by Kings XI Punjab for eight crore rupees. His name is Riley Meredith, and he is a bowler. Moreover, the player does not have any experience of IPL, but still, he can give value to money. Punjab is looking strong with this player and can make a terrific win this season. Although his base value was 40 lakhs only, all the teams showed equal interest in buying this player, which made him more expensive.
Let’s talk about the last player for our article, and he is Moeen Ali, an all-rounder. His experience is quite well, and he has played many matches for RCB. He also has the experience of playing international cricket as he is a well-known England team player. Moeen has helped RCB come out of difficulties, and he can also help Chennai super kings win the game. His base value was two crores, and he was sold for seven crores rupees.
After reading all the information, one can claim that IPL 2021 will be a super hit, and everyone will enjoy it to the fullest. Do not forget to watch IPL on television and OTT platforms from 9th April 2021.
