IPL 2019: Best Unsold XI
#4 Cheteshwar Pujara
Cheteshwar Pujara went unsold once again at the IPL auction. The India Test number 3 is going through a purple patch in Australia, where he won the man-of-the-match award in the first Test after playing a couple of gritty knocks.
But Test credentials have no bearing at the auctions, and Pujara found no buyers.
#5 Manoj Tiwary
Manoj Tiwary was one of the few capped Indian batsmen who went unsold at the auction. Tiwary has been part of four different teams in the IPL, and has been in good form of late.
The West Bengal batsman played some vital cameos for Rising Pune Supergiant in IPL 2017, and was thus picked by Kings XI Punjab for 1 crore in 2018. However, the 33-year-old failed to deliver for the Kings and scored just 47 runs in 5 matches.
He was not retained for IPL 2019 by the Punjab-based franchise. And today, with a base price of 50 lakh, Tiwary found no takers.Published 19 Dec 2018, 00:39 IST
