Here are the details of the price each team will pay for each ball delivered by these bowlers during the 2021 IPL.
The fourteenth season of the Indian Premier League is expected to start from mid-April this year. The 8 teams bought some players according to their needs during the mini-auction held in February. We saw that a lot of money was spent on bowlers and in particular on pacers during the auction. In fact, of the 6 most expensive players in the mini-auctions, four were fast bowlers.
These bowlers will now have a lot of responsibility on their shoulders. They are expected to be regular starters in all fourteen league games for their respective franchise. This makes their role even more important in the team’s campaign.
In this article, we’ll analyze the data on the price each team will pay for each ball these bowlers deliver. This takes into account that they will play four assists each in the fourteen games they will be in. In the past, it has been found that some expensive players are unable to meet expectations and often spend most of their time on the bench after failing in the first few games.
5. Riley Meredith: 2.38 Lakh / ball
Young Australian stimulator Riley Meredith was bought by Kings of Punjab for a price of Rs. 8 crores. He was very impressive in the recently concluded BBL season. Many former cricketers have praised the young bowler for his incredible skills.
In this season, each ball from Meredith will cost the Punjab franchise 2.38 Lakh. He hopes his performance is worth its price. It will be interesting to see how the Punjab chooses its four foreign players.
Last season they struggled in the bowling department and in the death overs to be special. This year, they would bank on a young stimulant like Meredith to solve their long-term problems.
