“There is no budget for Lord” had said Yuzvendra Chahal to Shardul Thakur and it proved to be right when Thakur’s name popped up at the IPL 2022 Mega Auctions. Thakur, with his all-round abilities, was expected to attract bids and the right-arm quick indeed got franchises to run after him. Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings were the two most interested franchises in bagging Shardul and the former succeeded.

Chennai Super Kings also showed interest for a while, but they backed out feeling the purse constraint. Nonetheless, DC and PBKS kept going neck to neck and in no time Shardul’s bid crossed the ten-crore mark. Both the franchises fought for a while but PBKS decided to stay put after the bid amount reaches 10.75 Crores and eventually Delhi Capitals managed to get hold of Shardul Thakur.
