What do they have to say?
Did you get an answer?
Well, all the 8 franchisee bid very well, enough of trolling RCB, even they caught up in the end getting Steyn and Udana (great pick). MI had nothing to do in the auction, but still they did very well, getting Lynn and then NC Nile, was a great move. The CSKians did what was expected, Piyush and Lill Curran (Sam) are such gem of a players. SRH and RR again invested well in their interest and culture i,e, to get youth prodigies and gamble. The DC did their best in accumulating all the openers, so much so that they can bat vs 2 teams simultaneously, but getting Woakes will solve their headache abit. This IPL auction was so important for the KX1P and KKR who left out majority of their players, both had huge money in their pocket, and how did they spend it, amazing. Both teams will be so happy with the way they have planned and executed it. But, if you have to choose 1 winner of the IPL Aucton 2020, it would be none other than the KKR. Even an explanation is not required.
Among the players and nations, The Aussie mates made a merry out of this IPL Auction, as Pat Cummins Topped the chart, Maxwell came 2nd. The Big-lads from West Indies too had their moments, with Hetmyer and Cotrell being the top earners.
It was a disappointing IPL Auction for the Blackcaps, as most of their T20 specialists went unsold.
However, the Indian upcoming Prodigies had a great time as the likes of Priyam Garg, Yasashvi Jaiswall, have been picked in such a marquee tournament.
Overall, the IPL Auction 2020 was a fun ride, with so many interesting picks to entertain us come the next IPL season in early 2020. Cricket Plays will keep you updated till then… C ya.
