Carlos Brathwaite Bought By Kolkata Knight Riders For INR 5 Crore
Sunrisers Hyderabad had released West Indies’ T20 captain Carlos Brathwaite just a season after they bagged him in the auction for Rs 2 crore. Form was not on the 30-year-old’s side in recent times. In the ongoing year, he has picked up 7 wickets in 9 T20Is, and scored 50 runs in the 5 innings he batted in.
However, there is absolutely no denying the talent of the man who smacked four sixes in the final over to fire his team to World T20I in 2016. He also returned with 3/23 in that match.

In the 2018 Caribbean Premier League, he took 10 wickets in 10 matches and scored 104 runs in 7 innings. Also the fact that he is an all-rounder (a prized commodity in the shortest format of the game ) adds to his value.
And as expected, he caused a big bidding war after entering the auction at base price of INR 75 lakh. Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab went all out to secure his services. Eventually, the allrounder went to Kolkata Knight Riders after the two-time time champions shelled out a whopping 5 crore.
