A Pakistani Journalist Said Shaheen Afridi Deserve 200 Crore And Got Trolled Badly: The two days of exciting IPL 2022 mega-auction came to an end on Sunday evening with 2-4 players getting picked by the ten IPL franchise. All the teams spent a combined total of INR 551.7 crore to stack up their squads for the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League.

While the mega-auctions witnessed some huge buys and some intense bidding wars, the fans also witnessed some of the biggest players missing out to find a spot in any of the franchises.

India’s young batter Ishan Kishan remained the biggest buy as Mumbai Indians paid a whopping Rs 15.25 crore to buy him back in the team. An intense bidding war took place for Indian bowler Deepak Chahar with 4 teams locked in a big fight, however, it was eventually CSK that bought him back in the squad for INR 14 crore.

“If, Shaheen Shah Afridi was in #IPLAuction. He would’ve gone for 200 crores.”
