Chopra makes bold prediction, says Starc will become most expensive IPL buy ever

Written by Rohit Pawar

Former India opener Aakash Chopra has made some bold predictions on the the day when the 8 IPL teams released and retained players of the 14th edition of the cash-rich league.

The former opener said that Australia pacer Mitchell Strac, who opted out of IPL 2020 to prepare for now-postponed T20 World Cup, can become the most expensive IPL buy ever in the February auction.

Further, then 43-year-old said that Afghanistan spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman, who was released by KXIP on Wednesday can fetch somewhere around Rs 7 to 8 crore. Jason Roy, part of Delhi Capitals in IPL 2020, can go for Rs 4-6 crore according to the cricketer-turned-commentator.

Released Australia cricketers Glenn Maxwell and Nathan Coulter-Nile can “decent contracts”, Aakash Chopra said.

The former Delhi batsman also expressed a lot of confidence in IPL future of Australia all-rounder Cameron Green and New Zealand’s 6 feet seven inch tall pacer Kylie Jamieson.

“Jamieson to receive solid interest. 5-7 crore. Green for 5-6 crore,” Aakash Chopra predicted.
