The auction of this season of IPL has seen many surprises but perhaps the biggest of them all is the money spent on Cariappa a rookie spinner by the KKR. The mystery spinner was bought for a whopping 4,00,000 USD which is 24 times his basic price.
The destructive batsmen from Mumbai Surya Kumar Yadav felt that having played him in the nets and played along in the KPL, Cariappa will not take too many matches to settle into the IPL and that teams will find him harder and harder to play.
KKR start their defense of the title against Mumbai on 8th at the Eden Gardens. And Yadav felt that it was a blessing in disguise. To come back from Dubai and play is different from playing at home and it is always a positive to start at home added Yadav.
Defending the title has made everyone serious said Yadav and he also added that it is a great opportunity for the youngsters like Cariappa and Kuldeep Yadav to showcase their talent. He said that they were very serious in their preparation and that every player knew their roles in the team.
The Former Mumbai captain felt that there was no pressure on them to perform and rather that it was a great opportunity to prove themselves.
