Piyush Chawla’s IPL career saw a steady decline over the past three years before a sharp rebound on Friday. He was signed by Mumbai Indians for Rs 50 lakh.
From 2020 to 2021, the leg spinner’s game time was reduced from seven to one. He was happy to be a member of the commentary teams even though no team selected him for the 2022 mega auction.
The player was then suddenly acquired by Mumbai Indians for Rs 50 lakh during the 2023 mini auction. The impact player rule is likely to benefit the fourth-highest wicket-taker.
Amit Mishra, who was signed by Lucknow SuperGiants for Rs 50 lakh, shares Chawla’s story. After three years, Mishra, who is 40 years old, will return to the Twenty20 tournament.
He has taken 166 wickets in the IPL, and Lucknow will want to use him as a big player. Mishra is also the only bowler in the IPL to score three hat-tricks.
For his last T20I appearance over two years back, Joe Root’s consideration in Rajasthan caused a commotion. In the 2018 IPL auction, he did not sell, and it appeared that would continue on Friday in Kochi. The veteran batter was unsold when he was first put up for auction, but the accelerated bidding got him for his base price of INR 1 crore.
Nicholas Pooran has neglected to live up to the elevated assumptions from him. In the mega auction in 2022, Sunrisers Hyderabad signed the wicketkeeper for INR 10.75 million, but he was released after just one season.
He was made captain of the West Indies team in 2022. He even served as team captain during the T20 World Cup in 2022, but he resigned after the team was eliminated early.
Because of this, few people expected Pooran to win INR 16 crore at the auction. However, the Lucknow team was willing to part with that amount in order to add a finisher to its ranks.
Shivan Mavi was signed by the Gujarat Titans for Rs 6 crore. Once more, the Uttar Pradesh pacer received a significant payment. Mavi was signed by Kolkata Knight Riders for INR 7.25 million during the mega auction in 2022. The 24-year-old had a normal season and was delivered by the double cross boss.
However, when the names of the youngsters appeared in the auction, teams expressed interest. Gujarat Titans signed him after receiving interest from Chennai Super Kings, his former team KKR, and Rajasthan Royals. The amount that the teams were willing to spend, not his participation in the tournament, surprised everyone.
Sunrisers Hyderabad purchased Mayank Agarwal for Rs. Another name that was anticipated to be selected during the auction was 8.25 crore Agarwal, but not for the staggering amount of more than Rs 8 crore.
The batsman from Karnataka has struggled for form both on the domestic circuit and in the Indian team. Agarwal struggled with poor form in the 2022 Indian Premier League, indicating that he was unable to take on the role of captain for the Punjab Kings.
He was signed by Sunrisers Hyderabad, the team with the most money from the mini-auction.
