Daryl Mitchell IPL Auction
Chennai Super Kings secured the services of New Zealand all-rounder Daryl Mitchell for a notable sum of Rs. 14 crore during the IPL 2024 auction in Dubai. Mitchell, potentially filling the shoes of English all-rounder Ben Stokes, who was released by CSK before the auction, garnered significant attention from teams.
Teams were eager to invest in the Kiwi player following his impressive performance in the ODI World Cup earlier this year, where he amassed 552 runs with an impressive average of 69.00 and a strike rate of 111.06.
Mitchell had a stint with the Rajasthan Royals in 2022, playing two matches after being acquired by the franchise for his base price of Rs. 75 lakh. Notably, the 32-year-old remained unsold in the previous year’s auction when listed at a base price of Rs. 1 crore.
