The upcoming IPL auction in Dubai on December 19 has triggered speculation among fans and experts alike. As players eagerly await their fate in this auction, some high-profile names have set their base prices at Rs 2 crore, despite disappointing performances. These players might face the unfortunate outcome of remaining unsold in this high-stakes auction.

Steve Smith and Harshal Patel

Delhi Capitals signed Australian batsman Steve Smith for Rs 2 crore in the previous season, but his underwhelming performance led to his release. Smith’s struggle with runs might hamper his chances, resulting in an unsold status. Similarly, RCB’s Harshal Patel, despite earlier heroics, faced a dip in form leading to his release. With a base price of Rs 2 crore, Patel might find himself unsold in the upcoming IPL season.

Uncertain Fate for Kedar Jadhav and Angela Mathews

Indian batsman Kedar Jadhav, a veteran of Chennai Super Kings, has also entered the list with a base price of Rs 2 crore. The combination of performance concerns and a high base price might sideline his prospects in the auction. Sri Lankan player Angela Mathews, another seasoned campaigner, also holds a base price of Rs 2 crore. His experience notwithstanding, the gamble on Mathews might lead to an unsold tag this season.

Chris Jordan’s Prospects

Chris Jordan, with a base price of Rs 1.5 crore, faces uncertainty given the hesitation of teams to make an early bet on him. The English player might struggle to find a bidder, considering his base price and the cautious approach of teams.
