Meme fest on Twitter after English players create history in IPL auction


Sam Curran became the most expensive IPL ever in history after the English all-rounder was bought by Punjab Kings for a whopping Rs. 18.5 crore in this year’s auction. Curran’s skipper in the national side, Ben Stokes, too fetched a whopping 16.25 crore. Stokes, who earlier played for Rajasthan Royals, was bought by Chennai Super Kings.

Stokes painted his timeline yellow, the colour of Chennai Super Kings to announce his new IPL team.

Sam Curran wrote on Twitter after Punjab Kings paid a record amount to sign him. “Back to where it all started! Looking forward to it.”

Sam’s brother, Tom Curran, remained unsold even though he had a base price of Rs. 75 lakh.
