Worst purchase by each franchise during the IPL 2024 Auction

We know that the Indian Premier League is a much-awaited series for cricket fans. There were some incredible reveals, some unexpected finds, and some undervalued purchases at the IPL 2024 Auction. But there were also some bad, or more accurately, some overpriced, and worst-buy franchise players. The worst purchases made by each team at the IPL 2024 Auction are listed below.

Worst purchase by each franchise during the IPL 2024 Auction

1. Chennai Super Kings (CSK)

Players bought:

Player Sold Price
Rachin Ravindra Rs. 1.8 crore
Shardul Thakur Rs. 4 crore
Daryl Mitchell Rs. 14 crore
Sameer Rizvi Rs. 8.4 crore
Mustafizur Rahman Rs. 2 crore
Avinash Rao Aravelly Rs. 20 lakh

Worst Purchase: Mustafizur Rahman, with spinners dominating in Chepaux and Devon Conway, Daryll Mitchell, Mahesh Theekshana, and Matheesha Pathirana filling the abroad positions, it is doubtful that 'The Fizz' would be included, especially with the arrival of Rachin Ravindra.

2. Mumbai Indians (MI)

Players bought:

Player Name Sold Price
Gerald Coetzee Rs 5 crore
Nuwan Thushara Rs 4.8 crore
Dilshan Madushanka Rs 4.6 crore
Mohammad Nabi Rs 1.5 crore
Shreyas Gopal Rs 20 lakh
Anshul Kamboj Rs 20 lakh
Naman Dhir Rs 20 lakh
Shivalik Sharma Rs 20 lakh

Worst Purchase: Mohammad Nabi; an Afghanistani all-rounder is extremely unlikely to be included in the MI lineup since Gerald Coetzee and Dilshan Madhushanka will be the team's top bowlers as foreign players and Hardik Pandya and Tilak Verma already fulfil the all-rounder position.

3. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)

Players bought:

Player Name Sold Price
Alzarri Joseph Rs 11.5 crore
Yash Dayal Rs 5 crore
Tom Curran Rs 1.5 crore
Saurav Chauhan Rs 20 lakh
Lockie Ferguson Rs 2 crore
Swapnil Singh Rs 20 lakh

Worst Purchase: Yash Dayal; Alzarri Joseph fills Faf Du Plessis, Cameron Green, and Glenn Maxwell's overseas positions, while Tom Curran serves as a backup. RCB lacks a great spinner, therefore Alzarri Joseph's purchase completes their abroad slots. The only player the Royals lack is a great spinner; it would have been preferable to have acquired a spinner rather than the patchy Yash Dayal. Siraj is now the top Indian bowler in the team.

4. Rajasthan Royals (RR)

Players bought:

Player Name Sold Price
Rovman Powell Rs 7.4 crore
Shubham Dubey Rs 5.8 crore
Nandre Burger Rs 50 lakh
Tom Kohler-Cadmore Rs 40 lakh
Abid Mushtaq Rs 20 lakh

Worst Purchase: Rovman Powell, since he is a very awful option to play against a spin attack due to his inconsistent performance and extreme unreliability. Additionally, his poor footwork will make him a simple target for seamers who roam across the pitch.

5. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)

Players bought:

Player Name Sold Price
Mitchell Starc Rs 24.75 crore
Mujeeb Rahman Rs 2 crore
Sherfane Rutherford Rs 1.5 crore
Gus Atkinson Rs 1 crore
Manish Pandey Rs 50 lakh
K.S. Bharat Rs 50 lakh
Chetan Sakariya Rs 50 lakh
Angkrish Raghuvanshi Rs 20 lakh
Ramandeep Singh Rs 20 lakh
Sakib Hussain Rs 20 lakh

Worst Purchase: Gus Atkinson, as the foreign berths will be occupied by the indispensable players Mitchell Starc, Jason Roy, Andre Russell/Sherfane Rutherford, and Sunil Narine and Mujeeb ul Rahman, considering the spin-friendly tracks at Eden Gardens, will compete for the fourth spot.

6. Gujarat Titans (GT)

Players bought:

Player Name Sold Price
Azmatullah Omarzai Rs 50 lakh
Umesh Yadav Rs 5.8 crore
Manav Suthar Rs 20 lakh
Shahrukh Khan Rs 7.4 crore
Sushant Mishra Rs 2.2 crore
Kartik Tyagi Rs 60 lakh
Spencer Johnson Rs 10 crore
Robin Minz Rs 3.6 crore

Worst Purchase: Umesh Yadav, as there is little place for a bowler considering that GT has great pacers in Spencer Johnson and Azmatullah Omarzai, who fulfil their pacer needs, and Rashid Khan and Noor Ahmed's spin quality.

7. Lucknow Super Giants (LSG)

Players bought:

Player Name Sold Price
Shivam Mavi Rs 6.4 crore
M. Siddharth Rs 2.4 crore
David Willey Rs 2 crore
Ashton Turner Rs 1 crore
Arshin Kulkarni Rs 20 lakh
Mohd. Arshad Khan Rs 20 lakh

Worst Purchase: David Willey, as Shivam Mavi's arrival enhances the pace of assault with Mark Wood, who is extremely dangerous, and Mohsin Khan's presence offers a far superior left-arm speed option.

8. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)

Players bought:

Player Name Sold Price
Pat Cummins Rs 20.5 crore
Travis Head Rs 6.8 crore
Jaydev Unadkat Rs 1.6 crore
Wanindu Hasaranga Rs 1.5 crore
Akash Singh Rs 20 lakh
Jhathavedh Subramanyan Rs 20 lakh

Worst Purchase: Wanindu Hasaranga. Although Hasaranga is a superb bowler, the purchase of Hasaranga just doesn't make sense because he won't get much playing time, especially considering that SRH already has valuable overseas players.

9. Punjab Kings (PBKS)

Players bought:

Player Name Sold Price
Harshal Patel Rs 11.75 crore
Chris Woakes Rs 4.2 crore
Prince Chaudhary Rs 20 lakh
Tanay Thyagarajan Rs 20 lakh
Shashank Singh Rs 20 lakh
Vishwanath Pratap Singh Rs 20 lakh
Ashutosh Sharma Rs 20 lakh
Rilee Rossouw Rs 8 crore

Worst Purchase: Worst Purchase: Rilee Rossouw, as he is currently 37 years old and incredibly unreliable. PBKS should have made a far greater investment in players like Josh Inglis and Steve Smith.

10. Delhi Capitals (DC)

Players bought:

Player Name Sold Price
Harry Brook Rs 4 crore
Tristan Stubbs Rs 50 lakh
Ricky Bhui Rs 20 lakh
Kumar Kushagra Rs 7.2 crore
Rasikh Dhar Rs 20 lakh
Jhye Richardson Rs 5 crore
Sumit Kumar Rs 1 crore
Shai Hope Rs 75 lakh
Swastik Chhikara Rs 20 lakh

Worst Purchase: Kumar Kushagra, as DC should have invested in potential Indian bowlers instead of a batter, and Delhi has a strong batting lineup. Their bowling department, on the other hand, is deficient, with just two or three players. Additionally, Stubbs and Hope are great additions to the Delhi-based team.
