New Delhi. The eliminator match of IPL 2023 will be played on Wednesday. While crores of fans around the world would be eyeing the clash between the third and fourth ranked teams at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium, the credibility of more than Rs 133 crore on a 22-yard pitch would also be tested on the test of fail-pass. This credit of crores belongs to those star players of Lucknow Super Giants and Mumbai Indians on whom their franchises have looted a lot of money and the fans have pinned their precious hopes.
The first thing about the Mumbai Indians who grabbed the IPL trophy five times in their claws. Talking about the main players, captain Rohit Sharma himself has been added to this Mumbai platoon for Rs 16 crore. Even more than the captain, the century of the last match, Cameron Green, is 17.50 crores. Ishaan Kishan is also at 15.25 crores. At the same time, Tim David 8.25 crores, Suryakumar Yadav 8 crores, Chris Jordan 2 crores, Tilak Verma 1.75 crores, Jason Behrendorff 75 lakhs and Piyush Chawla have been included in the team for Rs 50 lakhs. The total cost of all these is more than 70 crores.
At the same time, the price of captain KL Rahul in Lucknow Super Giants is Rs 15 crores. Since KL has been ruled out of the tournament due to injury, the biggest cost after leaving him out of the list is Caribbean star Nicholas Pooran’s 16 crores. After this, Marcus Stoinis 11 crores, Avesh Khan 10 crores, caretaker captain Krunal Pandya 8.25 crores, Quinton Dickock 6.75 crores, Deepak Hooda 5.75 crores, spinner Ravi Bishnoi 4 crores and Naveen-ul-Haq and Kyle Myers for Rs 50-50 lakhs. Sweating it out for the team.
Wah Dhoni Wah! The umpire trapped the rule, stopped the game for 4 minutes, died after persuasion
Mark Wood of England, who was included in the team for 7.5 crores, is out of the tournament. Like KL Rahul, if Wood is also removed from this list, then the cost of the main players of Lucknow is around 63 crores. In this way, the main players from Mumbai and Lucknow, who are worth more than Rs 133 crore, will fight among themselves to pay off the salt debt of their respective teams and franchises to continue their journey in the IPL.
