Ravichandran Ashwin: Ravichandran Ashwin, who played for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2023, has made some special and big predictions regarding the auction for IPL 2024 in one of his latest videos. Preparations for IPL 2024 have started. IPL teams have released and retained their players for the next season. Now all the cricket fans are waiting for the auction for IPL, which will be held in Dubai on 19th December.
Who will get more money in IPL auction?
In that auction, huge bids are being expected on Indian and foreign players as well. India’s experienced off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin believes that some players released in this IPL auction may attract big bids. Discussing this on his YouTube channel, Ashwin said that, I see a fight taking place between CSK and Gujarat for Shahrukh Khan. Gujarat has released Hardik Pandya, so now they need a player who can finish the game for them. There is a lack of power hitters in their team, and they need power hitters.
He further said that, Shahrukh Khan was in Punjab Kings for Rs 9 crore, I think he has demonstrated his skills well there. Is this a release for them? Because I think the team can go up to Rs 12-13 crore for him in the auction.
What did Ashwin say for CSK?
Ravichandran Ashwin further said on his YouTube channel that CSK may miss Mitchell Starc due to the inclusion of Shahrukh Khan in the team, because they do not have a local player who can make a big impact. He went after Shahrukh Khan in the mega auction, that’s why I am saying this. Let us tell you that Shahrukh Khan was kept in the Punjab team as a finisher, and he scored runs at a strike rate of 165.96.
