IPL auction is the talk of the town right now. Pat Cummins, with a base price of Rs 2 crore, became the most expensive overseas buy as he was sold to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for a whopping Rs 15.50 crore. Glenn Maxwell was sold to Kings XI Punjab for Rs 10.75 crore while Aaron Finch was picked up by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for Rs 4.4 crore in the Indian Premier League auction on Thursday. Yusuf Pathan remained unsold while India’s Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara also failed to find any bidders in Kolkata.
England captain Eoin Morgan will be playing for Knight Riders in the upcoming IPL season as he was bought by KKR for Rs 5.25 crore. Robin Uthappa, who was released by KKR, has been bought by Rajasthan Royals for Rs 3 crore. Dale Steyn, Adam Zampa and Colin De Grandhomme failed to attract any bidders at the auction while Piyush Chawla signed for Rs 6.75 crore by Chennai Super Kings.
Though other team fans are extremely happy with their team’s decision, CSK fans looked dejected for picking a 30 year old leg spinner as the team already has sufficient spinners. However, the official twitter handle of Chennai Super Kings posted happy tweets regarding the purchase of the former Kolkata player. Check out their tweets below :
These tweets added fuel in the frustration of the fans who started trolling the franchise for their decision. Check out some of their reactions below :
