Unsold Devon Conway hits 59-balls 99; Did IPL teams miss the trick at IPL Auction? 




IPL 2021 – Devon Convoy Big Miss by IPL Teams: New Zealand’s Devon Conway put up a batting masterclass with his knock of 59-balls 99 to help New Zealand thrash Australia by 53 runs in 1st T20. However, Conway’s stellar knock comes just 4 days late after the conclusion of the anticipated IPL Auctions 2021 – where he went unsold. Did the IPL teams miss the trick by ignoring Conway?

The 29-year-old went unsold in the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction last week even although he had a cheap base price at Rs. 50 lakh and Delhi Capitals skipper Ravi Ashwin was quick to point it out.

“Devon Conway is just 4 days late, but what a knock,” Ashwin tweeted.

New Zealand were reduced to 19/3 before Conway unleashed the beast within himself to hammer an unbeaten 99 off 59 balls and guided the hosts to 184/5 from their 20 overs.

IPL 2021: Highest paid NZ cricket Kyle Jamieson fails to make a big show

On the other hand, fellow Kiwi Kyle Jamieson was picked up in IPL 2021 Auctions for a whopping 15cr by Royal Challengers Bangalore. Highest paid NZ cricketer in the upcoming IPL edition, Jamieson had a rather timid outing in the NZ vs AUS 1st T20 picking just one wicket from his 4 overs.

Former Black Caps coach Mike Hesson, RCB’s director of cricket operations, led the charge to win the three-way bidding between Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings for Jamieson, who made his Test debut against India at home last year.

His retainer fee for the Black Caps, according to the report, is between USD 100,000 (approx 73 lacs) to USD 150,000 (approx 1cr) which makes RCB’s winning bid amount 20 times more.
