IPL auction: Unadkat, Tye bag million dollar deals on day two

|

Bengaluru: Indian fast bowler Jaydev Unadkat claimed a whopping Rs 11.5 crore deal with the usually thrifty while Australia pacer Andrew Tye fetched a Rs 7.2 crore deal from Kings XI Punjab on day two of the IPL players’ auction here.

While Unadkat and Tye enjoyed big payday, 17-year-old Sandeep Lamichhane made history by becoming the first cricketer from Nepal to be bought in the auction with Delhi Daredevils picking him up for Rs 20 lakh.

After leggie Rashid Khan took home Rs nine crore on an opening day, another spinner Mujeeb Zadran, all of 16 years, was richer by Rs four crore when KXIP made the winning bid for the teen sensation.

Zadran has already played for at the highest level and is currently part of the squad in New Zealand. His teammate in New Zealand, Zahir Khan, went to for Rs 60 lakh.

KXIP and RR went into the auction with the biggest purse having retained only one player. RR continued spending big on day two and KXIP too was not far behind.

The Royals, known for their wise spending, splurged some more to also clinch Karnataka off-spinner Krishnappa Gowtham for Rs 6.2 crore.

Unadkat became the costliest Indian buy at the auction so far with his price skyrocketing to Rs 11.5 crore from a base price of Rs 1.5 crore after a war between and Kings XI Punjab. Rajasthan Royals, however, had the last laugh.

Unadkat was sought after because of his specialist skills and the fact that he took 24 wickets at 13.41 for Rising Pune Supergiant last season.

Royals had also made the auction’s most expensive buy yesterday, picking up England all-rounder Ben Stokes for Rs 12.5 crore.

Their another costly purchase was offie Gowtham, who was sold for 31 times his base price of Rs 20 lakh.

Teams continued with their strategy of going after the Indian players.

Bowling all-rounder Washington Sundar was sold to for Rs 3.2 crore, Punjab pacer Sandeep Sharma went to Sunrisers Hyderabad for Rs 3 crore, Kings XI Punjab used Right to Match to retain Mohit Sharma for Rs 2.4 crore, Jharkhand spinner Shahbaz Nadeem was bought back by Delhi Daredevils for Rs 3.2 crore and Mohammad Siraj was picked up by RCB for Rs 2.6 crore.

Like yesterday, KKR targetted the budding talent, picking up another India U-19 performer Shivam Mavi for Rs 3 crore after buying Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shubman Gill on day one.

At a base of the price of Rs 50 lakh, CSK got a bargain in South African pacer Lungi Ngidi.

However, there were no takers for big international names such as Dale Steyn, England’s Eoin Morgan, and New Zealand’s Corey Anderson.
