After they spent 13 crore on me, I actually wanted the bidding to stop: Deepak Chahar

Pacer Deepak Chahar “actually wanted” Chennai Super Kings to stop bidding for him after it had hurtled past Rs 13 crore during the IPL auction as he was afraid that it may come in the way of building a strong team. Bought back by his old franchise for a staggering Rs 14 crore, making him the most expensive Indian bowler at an IPL auction, Chahar said he couldn’t imagine’ playing for any team apart from CSK. “I wanted to play for CSK because I haven’t imagined myself playing in other colour than yellow,” Chahar told Star Sports. “At one point, I thought it (the bid price) was too much. As a CSK player, I also want to build a good team. So after they spent 13 crore, I actually wanted the bidding to stop so I can go to CSK quickly and then we can buy some other players (with the money sav...

End of Road(ies): Ishant, Mishra, Chawla, Tiwary, Dhawal

The veteran of 105 Tests could not get a game in India’s recent three-Test series in South Africa, another indication that the team management is phasing him out. He was bought by Delhi Capitals for Rs 1.1 crore in the 2019 IPL auction. However, the franchise found use for him in just four games across seasons 2020 and 2021. Although he’s been part of as many as six franchises across the duration of the league, none of the teams spotted a worthy deal in Ishant’s skills this time. He’s still only 33, but the end seems nearer than ever.

IPL Auction 2022: Suresh Raina, fourth-highest run-getter in IPL history, goes unsold

Even as IPL franchises splurged the cash on youngsters at the IPL 2022 mega auction, former Indian batsman Suresh Raina went unsold. The dashing southpaw, who had a base price of Rs 2 crore, had been initially ignored by franchises during the main round of auction. He also found no takers during the final round of accelerated bidding on Sunday. The development means that Raina went unsold for the first time at an IPL auction. This will only be the second IPL season he would miss since the competition began in 2008. Raina is the fourth highest run-getter (5,528 runs) in the history of the IPL and only has Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma ahead of him. With age not on his side, missing out on the IPL this year could mean a hard road ahead for Raina to script an unlikely comeb...

IPL Auction 2022: Rs 8.25 cr for Shikhar Dhawan sparks surprise, R Ashwin is Buttler’s team-mate

IPL Auction 2022:The first round of auction of 10 marquee players threw up an ‘opening surprise’, Shikhar Dhawan going to Punjab Kings for Rs 8.25 crore after a three-way bidding war. Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals, too, were heavily involved in the bidding before giving up. For a 36-year-old player out of the Indian T20I set-up, such intense bidding was unexpected, with the franchises keeping an eye on the future. But every auction has its own dynamics and sometimes the auction room mood decides the eventual outcome.
