In the Indian Premier League, the players are brought by the various franchises through the auction process, and hence due to auction dynamics, some get more money than what they would have expected.
Cricket news: These players proved that they were worth the money the franchises have invested in them
After the IPL gets over every year, the talk of the town is has the expensive players done justice to their price or not. There are some players who justify their price will there are some who do not.
For example if we consider Ben Stokes from IPL 2017, he was auctioned for Rs. 14.5 crore, and he turned out to be more than worthy as he did everything possible to take Rising Pune Supergiants to the finals and was even awarded with the MVP award.
The key to good form in IPL is to play the natural game of ones irrespective of the price he is getting. It is neither their fault nor have they asked for such a huge sum. So they should keep the price aside and focus on their natural game.
This is the list of 5 such players who justified their price tag in IPL 2018, just like Ben Stokes did in 2017.
5. Sanju Samson (Rajasthan Royals)
A huge price tag can be a big burden for young players and can trouble them even more. But that was not the case with Rajasthan’s Sanju Samson, who was bought for a whooping Rs. 8 crore.
Sanju started the season with a bang and even held the orange cap for the first few games. His innings of 92* off 45 balls against RCB, which contained 10 sixes, was absolutely sensational.
Even though he lagged towards the end phase of the tournament but managed to score a crucial 50 against KKR in the eliminator, but however was unfortunate to take his team over the finishing line.
Having played 15 innings for the Rajasthan Royals, Sanju scored 441 runs and was definitely worth the price tag.
