Akash Chopra predicts the five players who are likely to fetch the highest amount in the auction as the IPL mini auction is scheduled to be held today in Kochi. Akash Chopra predicts that Sam Curren, England’s young seam bowler, will fetch the highest amount at the auction.
Karen is likely to fetch Rs 16 to 18 crores in the auction. With this, the all-time auction record of Rs 16.5 crore is likely to be broken this time. Currently, only one team can afford to buy the star by spending around Rs 18 crore. It will be Punjab. Chopra said he feels Punjab will own Karen.
Cameron Greene will be the second most expensive player in the auction. The star may get 14 to 16 crores. My opinion is that Hyderabad should buy Green. Because it’s an opener. Hyderabad need a good opener.
Gujarat Titans is another team that could buy Green. Delhi capitals may also show interest. Akash Chopra also said that he did not mention the names of the teams of KKR, RR and RCB because of the lack of money in his purse.
The world player from England, Ben Stokes, will be third in the auction. Stocks can go up to 12-13 crores in the auction. I think Stokes will also go to Sunrisers Hyderabad. Because they need a top batsman. Delhi Capitals are another team likely to go after Stokes in the auction.
West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder will be the fourth player who could fetch more money in the auction. The holder will be worth between 8-10 crores. Mumbai Indians are among the teams likely to show interest in him.
Indian opening batsman Mayank Agarwal may reach the fifth spot in the auction. Gujarat Titans might show interest in him in the auction. Apart from Hardik Pandya and Shubman Gill, Chopra felt that GT does not have better Indian batsmen.
