Salman Khan Is All Set To Become Mama For The Second Time
IPL auctions are over and we can't get enough of all the drama that unfolded. Harsha Bhogle regards this as the best IPL auction in 10 years. It was surprising to see a lot of names fetching a lot of money and at the same time a lot of big players going unsold.
I mean who would've imagined that someone like Chris Gayle and Lasith Malinga will not find buyers. Luckily for Gayle, Punjab bought him.
One of the biggest highlights of the auction this year was the RTM card. Franchises tried their level best to use their RTM card as appropriately as possible.
KKR though got criticized for using their RTM card on one of their spinners.
KKR used their card for Piyush Chawla and no one could understand why. Just so that you know, Chawla was the first name in the category for spinners. He had a four-way bid with Chennai, Mumbai, Rajasthan all bidding for him after he set his base price at Rs 1 Cr.
There was an intense bidding war for the former KKR player. However, he was eventually bought by CSK for Rs 4.2 crores but KKR used the RTM card to retain the player.
Following are the tweets of the people on Twitter after KKR retained Piyush using their RTM card.
2 back to back absolute shockers. Piyush Chawla to CSK for 4.2C and KKR RTMing him & not using it on Kuldeep. Enna kandraavi da idhu? #IPLAuction— Srini Mama 💲 (@SriniMama16) January 27, 2018
Not surprised so much money and thought being paid to Piyush Chawla, after all, he is a lucky mascot who can win you World Cups.— Gaurav Sethi (@BoredCricket) January 27, 2018
