Before the start of IPL, many franchises have poured money to acquire the players they want. Franchises have spent crores of rupees to ensure that the respective players will excel in the tournament and that they will play usefully for their team. But they had a disappointing performance in their first game. Now let’s see who those players are.
Cameron Green: Mumbai Indians spent 17.5 crores for Australia’s Cameron Green in the IPL mini auction held in December last year. Everyone felt that Green would be useful to the team with his stormy batting and bowling. But Green failed in his first match. In the first match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, he took the pavilion for 5 runs for Mumbai. Also, as far as bowling is concerned, he gave away 30 runs in two overs and took only one wicket. As a result, Mumbai, who had high hopes on Green, lost at the hands of RCB by 8 wickets.
Harry Brook: Sunrisers Hyderabad also bought England’s Harry Brook for Rs 13.25 crore. Sunrisers tried to strengthen the team’s batting department by including him. But Brook scored only 13 runs off 21 balls in his first match. In this match against Rajasthan Royals, Hyderabad lost by 72 runs.
Ben Stokes: Chennai Super Kings franchise spent Rs.16.25 crores for another English player Ben Stokes. But Stokes scored only 7 runs in the first match against Gujarat Titans. He also scored 8 runs off 8 balls in the match against Lucknow Super Giants on Monday. He bowled only one over and gave away 18 runs. As a result, Strokes upset Chennai in both their matches.
Sam Karan: Even Sam Karan, the most expensive player in the history of IPL, let the Punjab Kings down. Punjab spent 18.5 crore rupees for him. In the match against Kolkata in IPL Season 16, Karan scored 26 off 17 balls. Also bowled 3 overs and gave away 38 runs and took one wicket. But compared to Green, Stokes and Brook, it must be said that Karan performed well in the first match.
