Today, Mini auction for the IPL 2021 begun with a total of 164 Indian players, 125 overseas players and three players from Associate Nations, who will be auctioned. The biggest attraction of the auction was Chris Morris who went past Yuvraj Singh to attract highest-ever bid in IPL auctions. Chris Morris got sold to Rajasthan Royals for 16.25 cr.
The happiest news turned out to be a disappointment for Chris Morris as soon after he got sold, South Africa announced the cancellation of his citizenship, saying to be this rich in South Africa is a crime and this can dent the country’s image. Reportedly, South Africa doesn’t want to come out of its poor image which helps it in getting aids from the various world organisations such as WTO, World Bank, United Nations and free Covid vaccines.
Whether Chris Morris will accept the offer is yet to be decided.
