IPL 2022 Auction: Harbhajan Singh Leads Reactions After Chennai Super Kings Acquire Deepak Chahar For INR 14 Crore | Cricket News


Chennai Super Kings (CSK) acquired Deepak Chahar for INR 14 crore in the ongoing IPL 2022 Auction on Saturday to make him the most expensive Indian bowler in Indian Premier League history. The bowling all-rounder was involved in a mega bidding war involving CSK, Rajasthan Royals (RR), SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Delhi Capitals (DC). CSK eventually came out on top and outbid others. Chahar was also a crucial cog in MS Dhoni’s plans last season as they went on to defeat Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the final. After IPL 2021, Chahar wasn’t retained by CSK, but has been roped in right away in the ongoing auction. Fans and experts took to Twitter to laud the Team India cricketer, with Harbhajan Singh leading the wishes. “Wah Deepak pethaa bijwa dena ab ghar @deepak_chahar9 mehnat rang layi papa ki.Very happy for you and family #IPLMegaAuction2022 congratulations @ChennaiIPL Top performer 14 cr”, said the former Team India spinner.

One fan pointed out Chahar’s price hike since IPL 2018. The fan wrote, “From INR 80 Lac in 2018 to INR 14 Cr in 2022 for Deepak Chahar, from INR 40 Lac to 4 Cr for Natarajan, from 6.20 Cr in 2018 to 15.25 Cr in 2022 for Kishan, from 20 Lac in 2021 to 10.75 Cr in 2022 for Harshal Patel, from 50 Lac in 2021 to 5.75 Cr in 2022 for Hooda.”

“Deepak Chahar from getting selected at 80 Lakhs for CSK in previous Mega Auction to getting picked by the same franchise, but at a whopping 14cr in this Mega Auction”, another user wrote.

Here are the other reactions:

The ongoing auction has already seen plenty of drama with Mumbai Indians (MI) splashing INR 15.25 crore for Ishan Kishan. The wicketkeeper-batter is also the most expensive buy currently in the ongoing auction.
