IPL auction 2021: Gautam Gambhir surprised by Indian bowler's low price, said- extremely difficult to face him
If Chris Morris became the most expensive player in the IPL auction 2021, then New Zealand fast bowler Kyle Jamieson also returned with a hefty amount. The foreign players dominated the auction, while the Indian players were the most expensive among the players, while Krishnappa Gowtham was stunned. All cricket fans were surprised by the purchase made in this auction. These decisions were also shocking for former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir, but Gambhir is surprised by the price of an Indian player who did not get the expected attention. Team India pacer Umesh Yadav was bought by Delhi Capitals in this auction for just 1 crore rupees and this is a serious surprise.
Umesh was part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captained by Virat Kohli for the past few seasons. However, questions were always raised about his performance, as he often proved to be expensive. He did not get much opportunities in the last season and this time RCB released him just before the auction. When the name of Umesh Yadav came up in the auction, Delhi Capitals bought him at a base price of 1 crore rupees. Apart from Delhi, no team has bid for Umesh.
Umesh difficult to play while in rhythm
Two-time IPL champion captain Gambhir is surprised that no other team has bid for Umesh. According to Gambhir, when Umesh Yadav is in form, he is difficult to cope with. Gambhir while talking to Star Sports said,
“I was quite shocked when Umesh Yadav was bought for just Rs 1 crore. There are not so many bowlers here, so you can bowl at a speed of 135-140 km. Yes, it is true that his performance fluctuates, but when he is in rhythm, he is very dangerous. "
Profit deal for Delhi
Gambhir also said that it was a profitable deal for Delhi, because Umesh has experience and Ishant Sharma could not remain fit constantly. Gambhir said, "He had to use a bowler like Tusshar Deshpande, who doesn't have much experience. Now Umesh Yadav has come to him, so hopefully he will do well for him. ”
