West Indies players Sheldon Cottrell and Shimron Hetmeyer were both sold for over US$1million at the 2020 IPL draft in India on Thursday.
Three teams – the Delhi Capitals, Rajasthan Royals and the Kings XI Punjab - were in the hunt for Cottrell’s services. The Kings XI Punjab eventually won the bidding for 8.5 Crores or over US$1 million.
Hetmeyer went to Delhi for 7.75Cr or approximately US$1 million. Delhi and the Kolkata Knight Riders submitted bids for the explosive Guyanese batsman.
Meanwhile, the big-hitting Evin Lewis and promising fast bowler Alzarri Joseph have gone unsold.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
