Still, votes would n’t have had plutocrat to buy him’ Gambhir on Shanaka 

IND vs SL 

If the IND vs SL series happened before IPL transaction. Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir reflected on Sri Lanka captain Shanaka’s prospects in the IPL transaction if it were to be a moment.

He scored a stormy 56 off 22 balls and picked two lattices to be arbitrated Player of the Match in the alternate T20I against hosts India. His all- round performance helped the callers level the series ahead of the third and final T20I on Saturday.

In the IPL 2023 transaction in December 

where all- rounders were in high demand and the likes of Sam Curran, Cameron Green and Ben Stokes broke the bank with hefty flings, unexpectedly Shanaka( base price ₹ 50 lakh) went unsold. Indeed as there were no buyers for him for the T20 circus, he’s presently the loftiest run- getter in the T20I series against India. In two matches, the 31- time-old has ingested 101 runs at an inconceivable strike rate of 206.12. Among loftiest gate- takers in the series, he’s at the fourth place with two lattices to his name.

Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir reflected on the Shanaka’s prospects in the IPL transaction if it were to be a moment. In an advertisement on Star Sports, he said that the Sri Lanka each- rounder would have brought loads of plutocrats if the ongoing IND- SL series happened during the deals.

I will not have a plutocrat, he’d be that precious, the way he has maundered. That’s what the transaction is about. Imagine if this series had happened just before the transaction, some of the votes would presumably not have had the plutocrat to buy him, said Gambhir.

Sri Lanka 

Meanwhile, Shanaka- led Sri Lanka will hope to decide the series when they face off against India in the decider game on Saturday. After the conclusion of T20Is, the callers will play a three- match One- Day International( ODI) series starting Tuesday, January 10.
