IPL 2019 Auctions: Quirky and Funny Tweets

IPL Auctions begun at yesterday noon. A lot of big names went unsold and surprisingly few unknown names sought big price.

Jaipur: The high voltage auction of players for Indian Premier Leauge (IPL)  2019 began here on Tuesday. By last evening, eight teams had spent a total of Rs 106.80 crore for the mega event.

Jaydev Unadkat and uncapped Varun Chakaravarthy were the joint costliest players of the auction. England all-rounder Sam Curran was the highest-paid foreign player at the IPL 2019 auction.

While many big players including Brendon McCullum, Dale Steyn, and Morne Morkel remain unsold, Yuvraj Singh got a new team as he was sold to Mumbai Indians(MI) at his base price of Rs 1 crore. Surprisingly, he went unsold in the first round of the bidding.

Retired cricket players are retained by their respective teams as part of their team management. Big names like VVS Laxman, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Dinesh Kartik, and Mohammed Kaif etc. will shoulder such responsibilities.

As usual, Twitter was buzzing with #IPLAuction as Twitterati was having too much fun even before the IPL starts next year.

Interestingly, an IPL fan took a dig at Pakistan and Pakistan Super League(PSL). It might also because of the fact that the final prize money of PSL is Rs. 1.4 million, whereas highest bid player Unadkat was bought at Rs. 1.4 million. Due to strained relations between India and Pakistan, Pakistani cricketers have not been participating in IPL.

IPL also brings in a bad name with bookies making huge money out of it. A user made fun of the bookies too.

Taking a dig at journalists a user tweeted as follows:
