    IPL 2024 Auction Live: Steal Deals for GT? Not really

    Was Umesh Yadav (Rs 5.80 crore) and Omarzai (Rs 50 lakh) steal deal for GT? “I wouldn’t call anybody a steal. That’s disrespectful to that player to some extent. We value Omarzai and Umesh.

    LIVE IPL Auction: Bangar on picking Woakes!

    Sanjay Bangar, PBKS, has an interesting take on picking Chris Woakes for Rs 4.20 crore. “Woakes covers two positions for us – Curran and Rabada. Having an Indian seamer is of immense value. Harshal bowls through the middle and death overs. It gives us an option of using Harshal as an Impact Player. That was the thinking behind acquiring both Woakes and Harshal,” he said.

    IPL 2024 Live Auction: The two contenders speak up!

    The two teams which engaged in an intense bidding war for Micthell Starc speaks up

    Venky Mysore, KKR CEO: Somebody told me just now before Starc’s bid, they put up something like a historic bid. Very quickly history changed. IPL has changed and the salary cap has changed (laughs). Everyone comes with their own plans. This is my 14th auction – you know you win some and lose some. Starc was a preffered player from that skillset standpoint. We were not successful in some bids, so that favoured us. We were just happy to have him in our side.

    Vikram Solanki, GT director of cricket: It shows the value of the player and the skillset he possesses. He’s a fabulous player and lost out to KKR. But that’s the way things go at the auction. We will make our way through the rest of the auction as we need to.

    IPL Auction Live: CSK on their plans ahead!

    Stephen Fleming opens up on if Daryl Mitchell is a replacement for Ben Stokes: “He played just one game, so not massive shoes. Daryl is a different type of player, but his performances over the last 18-24 months have warranted this type of a price. He is an unfashionable player, often goes under the radar. With his ability to play spin he is competitive and he is also a handy bowler. In Chepauk we can slide him into a role. Just like his performances, he fits in nicely and a good buy for us.”
