Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the second most successful team in IPL history, proved to be a flop in the 13th season for the first time. The team failed to reach the play-offs for the first time, while the team was led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the most successful captain of the Indian team. Among the top-6 most expensive batsmen, 5 are also the captain of their team. Among them, Dhoni is the batsman who cost the franchise the most in terms of performance.
Dhoni played 14 matches in the season, scoring just 200 runs at an average of 25. He was also overtaken by Yuva Rituraj Gaikwad playing his first tournament. Rituraj scored 204 runs in just 6 matches. Chennai bought this young batsman for a base price of Rs 20 lakhs.
Warner's performance in high prize players is worth money
In the season's high-prize players, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner performed well. The franchise retained him at a price of Rs 12.50 crore. However, ignoring the figures, the most value was Captain Rohit Sharma, who won the title for the 5th time to Mumbai Indians.
Padikkal scored more than captain Kohli in debut season
Devdutt Padikkal, who made his debut on behalf of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL, has impressed many veterans including Virat Kohli from Performance. He was the regular opener of the team. He scored the highest number of 473 runs for the team in 15 matches. RCB captain Kohli could score 466 runs in 15 matches.
First player to apply 3 consecutive FIFTY for Rituraj CSK
Dhoni's team was the first team to be eliminated from the CSK play-offs. But one of the best things for the team is Rituraj Gaikwad. He made it to the team after battling with Corona before the tournament began. He did not play well in the first 3 matches, but he did not give up. Finally he got a chance again in 3 matches, in which he made 3 consecutive fifty. He is the first player from CSK to do so.
Apart from Rituraj, Faf du Plessis also proved to be worth the money for CSK. The top-5 also named Shubman Gill and Rahul Tripathi for KKR, who performed well above their cost.
All-rounder Maxwell had a run of Rs 10 lakhs
The most surprising thing was for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). He bought Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell at a cost of Rs 10.75 crore, but he scored just 108 runs in 13 matches and took 3 wickets. Maxwell, identified as the best T20 batsman, could not hit a single six in the season. This thing has also surprised the veterans. The franchise had a wicket of 3.58 crores and a run of 9.95 lakhs.
Stokes hit a century, but his 2 wickets remained at 12.50 crores
World Cup winner Ben Stokes of England has been given 12.50 crores by Rajasthan Royals for one season. Stokes joined the team in the middle tournament because of his father's cancer. He took just 2 wickets in 8 matches. In this sense, the team got their wicket of Rs 6.25 crore. However, he scored 285 runs with the bat. During this, he also led Rajasthan to victory by scoring a century against a champion Mumbai.
