New Zealand fast bowler included in Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings
What RCB had bought for 15 crores, Chennai bought it for just 1 crore
new Delhi. Be it the Indian Premier League or international cricket, it is not only difficult but impossible to break Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s mind. A mini-auction was held in Kochi for next year’s IPL, in which on the one hand, all-rounder Ben Stokes was bought by paying a hefty amount, and on the other hand, the stormy fast bowler was bought very cheaply and added to the team. The amazing thing is that the player who was bought by Dhoni’s team for 1 crore was included in his team by Virat Kohli’s team in the last season by giving 15 crores.
Chennai Super Kings have prepared a good team for IPL 2023. The team that came out with better planning in the mini auction chose to spend money on the players. Keeping in mind the future captain’s option, all-rounder Ben Stokes made a high bid, while to accelerate the fast bowling attack, New Zealand all-rounder Kyle Jameson was added to the team by paying only 1 crore.
Dhoni’s mind dominates Kohli
1 season ago, the player on whom Royal Challengers Bangalore, a team of superstars like Virat Kohli, had bought him by giving 15 crores, this time Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team included him in his team by paying just 1 crore. In the auction held in the year 2021, RCB bought New Zealand all-rounder Kyle Jameson for 15 crores. Last season, due to personal reasons, he had decided not to enter the IPL. Returning after a year, his value went down at once.
