The auction witnessed the highest and record-breaking bidding in the history of IPL. Franchises breaking the bank to get the top-rated players in their teams. Few teams played the trick of waiting and grabbing players at an affordable price. However, many of the IPL franchises went way ahead and spent too much on their favorite player. Let’s have a look at those teams.
Sunrisers went into the auction with a huge amount of Rs 42.25
crore in their hand. This team lacked batters and all-rounders so they needed to use their money wisely to make a strong and attacking squad. Surprisingly, they picked Harry Brook at the huge price of Rs 13.25 crore. This England batter demolished bowling attacks for fun in international cricket but he does not have much experience. He played only 24 matches for England in all formats. Therefore, the decision of getting Harry Brook on the team is questionable.
Before the auction, MI released Kieron Pollard, Daniel Sams, and Fabian Allen, and they were expected to add new all-rounders to their team. They had Rs 20.55 crore in their purse to spend. However, Mumbai Indians went on a bidding war with Delhi Capitals to pick Australian all-rounder Cameron Green and signed him for a sum of Rs 17.5 crore. The 23-year-old is in the early stage of his career and played only eight international matches. This decision of Mumbai Indians seems to be an over-expenditure.
Lucknow Super Giants
LSG went all guns blazing to pick Nicholas Pooran and eventually picked him at the price of Rs 16 crore. Everyone expecting for the West Indies to fetch a lesser sum of amount than last season but things went in his favor of him. He has shown his brilliant skills in the previous IPL seasons but never remains consistent with his performance. He didn’t perform really well in the CPL 2022 too. Thus, one could say that Lucknow Super Giants have overspent on the WI batter.
