This star player remained unsold in the IPL auction

IPL 2024 Auction: The IPL 2024 auction was historic. This time all records were broken in the auction. Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc became the most expensive player in IPL history at Rs 24.75 crore. This time, all 10 franchises together purchased a total of 72 players in the auction. But no team relies on a star player. This player has caught everyone’s attention by scoring centuries in consecutive T20Is.

There was no bet on this star player in the auction

England wicketkeeper-batsman Phil Salt remained unsold in the auction this time. Salt was a part of Delhi Capitals until last year. But this time Delhi didn’t hold him back. Phil Salt had entered the auction with a base price of Rs 1.5 crore. But he couldn’t find a buyer. Phil Salt is currently on the West Indies tour with the England team. On this tour, he scored centuries in two consecutive T20 International matches.

Became the third batsman to achieve this in T20Is

In the fourth T20 match between the West Indies and England, Salt scored 110 runs in 57 balls with the help of seven fours and ten sixes. Earlier, on December 16, Phil Salt had also played an unbeaten innings of 109 runs. This makes him the third batsman to score two consecutive centuries in T20 International. Despite this brilliant performance, it remained unsold at auction.

The English team recorded a big victory

In the fourth match of the T20 series, England batted first and posted a huge score of 267 runs with the help of Phil Salt’s century. In response to this big target, the West Indies team collapsed for 192 runs. This means the series is tied 2-2 between both teams. Now the winner will be determined in the last game of the series.
