Veteran West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle was left surprised with Sam Curran, Cameron Green, Ben Stokes, and Nicholas Pooran going for huge prices in IPL 2023 auction. He called the all-rounders “Private Jet Category Players,” and also reacted hilariously to his fellow Caribbean getting a huge bid.
Sam Curran, Cameron Green and Ben Stokes shatter record at IPL 2033 auction
The three big guns in Sam Curran, Cameron Green and Ben Stokes were expected to earn huge bucks ahead of the IPL 2023 auction. But not many expected them to shatter all the records in the event.
With them getting purchased at higher rates, they became the top three most expensive buys in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The second set of the capped all-rounders will be doing the rounds for a long time.
It all started with a bid for Sam Curran, who tempted almost every team and invited a bidding war between Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians. He became the most expensive player in the history of the league when Punjab purchased him for INR 18.5 crores.
Chris Gayle's got the jokes. 😅

Young Australian all-rounder Cameron Green then also invited a bidding war but after failing to buy Curran, Mumbai Indians went all for him and purchased him for INR 17.5 crores. The focus then shifted to senior English all-rounder Ben Stokes, who was bought by Chennai Super Kings for INR 16.25 crores.
However, apart from the big guns, Nicholas Pooran was also among the expensive picks as he was picked by Lucknow Super Giants for INR 16 crores. Whereas Harry Brook was also amongst the big bucks as he bagged INR 13.5 crores for play for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
