Kolkata bought Australian Test captain Pat Cummins for Rs 7.25 crore and Shreyas Iyer for Rs 12.25 crore while Punjab bought Shikhar Dhawan for Rs 8.25 crore in the ongoing 2022 IPL mega auction here.
Mysore said, ‘I am happy that the first season went well for us. Pat Cummins was happy to get that price back. We thought his quote would go further. So, I’m very happy. Naturally, Shreyas is a top Indian player. The order is very long term in our thinking. It is wonderful and a matter of great joy.
Mysore said, ‘As far as the captaincy is concerned, I think the coach and the think tank will decide. Today’s and tomorrow’s work should be known, then we think. There are two solid options for captaincy in the form of Cummins and Shreyas.
Burman was happy to retain Dhawan along with experienced left-handed opener Mayank Agarwal.
“Also, if you look at the details of the auction, you will always find that due to non-availability of many foreign players, more Indian players will come,” he added.
