In the IPL auction 2024, many players bagged huge sums. It was a record-breaking day on the 19th of December as many teams were ready to pay the players they wanted to buy for as much money as possible. They were ready to give what it took to buy the players. On such a day, many records were set in the mini-auction. Pat Cummins became the first player to cross the mark of INR 19 crores and INR 20 crores as a player in the auction. Similarly, Starc became the first player to cross the mark of INR 22, 23, and 24 crores in the auction.
But some players were stolen in the auction. They were expected to be sold at a very high price. Given the dynamics of the auction, it was almost obvious that they were going to be in high demand in the auction, like other players. But as things turned out, these players were not as expensive as one thought them to be. It was a bit shocking to see them not get as much money as they probably deserved. But that’s how the auction usually works. The owners of the sides though, would be happy with the purchases they made.
Here are 5 steal deals in the IPL auction 2024
5. Kartik Tyagi
Kartik Tyagi was expected to be in demand. Particularly when the unknown names were going for huge sums, Tyagi was expected to be a huge sell. He was a good option for the teams to have, as he had the experience of playing in the IPL. Surprisingly, he did not go high and was stolen by GT in the auction. He bagged a price of INR 60 lakhs, which is too low for the skills he possesses. With time and experience, he is only going to get better. GT got a bargain deal, as they got a good young pacer who could become their future.
