IPL 2020 Auction: Kai Po Che Actor Will Now Play For Mumbai Indians: All thanks to the Indian Premier League that gives chance to young talented players of Indian cricket to shine and make it big in the cricket world by showcasing their talent. Cricketers like Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and many other youngsters owe their success in the cricket world to the Indian Premier League.

The recent IPL 2020 auction saw many unknown names of domestic cricket being roped in by IPL franchises, mostly at their base prices in order to fill up the number of spots in the squad. While it is still not sure if many of them will even get a chance to play during the tournament but it may prove to be a learning experience for the younger talents to learn from some of the biggest cricket stars.

One such star who will be getting this opportunity is a 21-years-old Digvijay Deshmukh from Maharashtra. Digvijay Deshmukh is a right-hand batsman and a right-arm fast-medium bowler, He has played one FC match and 7 T20 matches for the state, where he has scored 104 runs and taken 15 wickets.

Yesterday, during the IPL 2020 auction, Digvijay Deshmukh was bought by Mumbai Indians for his base price of INR 20 lakhs. It will be a great learning experience for this young talent to share the dressing room with many talented cricketers including Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah.

However, there’s something special about this young talent. Digvijay Deshmukh might be a lesser-known name in the cricket world but he is a Bollywood actor already. He has appeared in the much-acclaimed 2013 flick Kai Po Che, that featured stars including Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh, Rajkumar Rao, Manav Kaul, and others. In the movie Kai Po Che, Digvijay Deshmukh plays the role of a child prodigy Ali Hashmi.

Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians also made a huge buy-in Chris Lynn, who was sold at his base price of INR 2 crores, in the IPL 2020 auction yesterday. MI also bought other big names like Saurabh Tiwary and Nathan Coulter-Nile in the auction.
