Why did you spend Rs 24.75 crore on Mitchell Starc? Do you know the answer of Gautam Gambhir

Mitchell Starc fetched a huge amount of Rs 24.75 crore in Tuesday’s auction for IPL 2024. The Kolkata Knight Riders bought him at this expensive price. What’s special is that in this auction, Kolkata wanted to buy 12 players for Rs 32.7 crore, but spent more than 75% on Mitchell Starc alone. Everyone was surprised by this decision of the Kolkata franchise. When KKR mentor Gautam Gambhir was later asked why he spent so much money on Starc, what did he reply, read here…

Gautam Gambhir said, “Starc is an Starc will be special not only for his bowling but also for leading the bowling attack which will help all the other bowlers. He will prove very helpful to our two local bowlers. Both of our bowlers are very talented and you will definitely need someone to help them on the field. Stark will fit into all of these roles.

Gambhir, who led Kolkata Knight Riders to the title twice under his captaincy, also said that he believes a strong bowling line-up is more important than a strong batting line-up. The former India opener said: “Our bowling line-up is very deep now. “We always wanted a strong bowling attack and now we have a lot of options with Mujibur Rahman, Gus Atkinson, Sunil Narine, Varun Chakravarthy and Mitchell Starc. In addition to the two Indian fast bowlers Harshit Rana and Suyyash Sharma, we also have Chetan Sakariya.
