Kyle Jamieson was a big attraction at the IPL 2021 auction table as Royal Challengers Bangalore roped in his services for 15 crores. They earlier bought Glenn Maxwell for 14.25 crores.
They have made two of the biggest buys of the day in the IPL 2021 auction. Jamieson was expected to be paid the big bucks and RCB has just proved him right.
RCB started the big at the base price. Delhi Capitals join next. An intense bidding war from both camps for Jamieson, who has impressed with his all-round show. Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir predicted big buys for the Kiwi cricketer.
RCB rope in Kyle Jamieson
Ohh, there is not stopping Delhi and RCB, who take the price to ₹7.50 crores and Punjab Kings join the race late at ₹7.75 crores. They have been a late starter and have taken calculated risks so far.
RCB offer ₹10 crores for Jamieson but Punjab go past again and bidding continues. It’s all between RCB and Punjab.
Jamieson’s bid has now crossed Glenn Maxwell’s ₹15 crores. There are more pauses between bids now, but nobody seems like they’re giving up yet. RCB had the last laugh as they rope in Kyle Jamieson for a whopping ₹15 crores.
The tall all-rounder will be playing his first season with the franchise who have been still struggling to win the trophy despite building up a good squad every single season.
