IPL 2021 auction: Morris to RR, Jamieson to RCB and full list of players sold


South African all-rounder Chris Morris hit the jackpot by becoming the most expensive overseas buy in IPL history with Rajasthan Royals bringing him home for a whopping Rs 16.25 crore. Kumar Sangakkara, Rajasthan Royals’ director of cricket, spoke on their high-profile acquisition of Morris. 

“We’re glad to get Chris Morris with us simply for what he brings to the side, both with the bat and ball. With the ball especially, his numbers across the IPLs are really good and his ability to finish games with the bat down the order is useful. Yes, the price was on the higher side, but we’re looking for a very specific role with Chris and really happy to have someone like him in our squad,” Sangakkara said about Morris. 

Morris will be wearing the Royals jersey for the first time after 2015. Each team had a salary cap of Rs 85 crore but for the mini-auction, they had limited purse to buy players for 61 slots. 

A total of Rs 145 crore was splurged by the eight franchises with 57 cricketers getting sold including 22 overseas players – Morris being the highest while young New Zealand paceman Kyle Jamieson bagged by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for Rs 15 crore.
