IPL Auction 2017: Does IPL snub make the Indian cricketers feel like Rejected?
What is the beauty of Sports? Well!! the perfect reason for sports is to face competition, to win the matches. In cricket, the players compete with each other to overcome the skills and win mental battles. The athletes live in ego and play well to improve their fighting abilities. During the match, they play with insecurities of losing it and focus on giving their best.
The starting of India Vs Australia, India always kicks off with their favorite players making it difficult of Steve Smith to handle multiple burdens. There are quite new Indian players with bouncing up batting powers that work well for egos of opposite teams.
Smith an Austrailian pace bowler chose over Ishant Sharma as the most successful all-rounder. Ishant Sharma has clearly shown his disappointment, as though there was no taker who wants to buy Ishant Sharma. Smith the newly appointed leader of the Pune IPL franchise got inspiration to play well in all three formats. On the way, played in IPL 2016 he is lucky to earn big amount of Rs 3.8 crore but seems unlucky to win T20 matches. Taking away 215 test wickets still there was the lack of consistency in his performance and remains underperformance player.
The Pune franchise owner Sanjeev Goenka, who also remove MS Dhoni from captaincy feels that his decision was right. He wants variations of players to play in T20 matches and Ishant is only a test player earning fast currency. Also, the highest base price of 2 crores set by Ishant Sharma does not allow franchise heads turn over.
Like other players Cheteshwar also smarting to play in IPL 2017. But unfortunately, he was not snub by any of the franchises. With the great performance, Pujara has increased run-scoring rate as compare to other batting stars. But this is being ignored by all IPL franchises, they don’t snub Pujara for a base price of 50 lakhs.
Another player who refused over other Australia player was opener Abhinav Mukund. Recently he has come back in Indian test team but does not get to play with IPL opportunity. A player handful of IPL games the franchises does not show faith in buying Mukund. Few disappointments could be there for Indian players, but for Ishant and Pujara it could be deeper. They are the players who can perform in the games in hardest format.
