NZ PLAYERS HAVE CONTINUALLY BEEN OVERLOOKED FOR SECOND RATE AUSTRALIANS IN THE IPL: SIMON DOULL

The Indian Premier League 2021’s auctions have been concluded and we have people from all over the world to share their comments on it. A former fast bowler of the New Zealand cricket team and a commentator, Simon Doull has come forward to share his views on the IPL 2021 auctions. According to Simon, the New Zealand players are always overlooked for second-rate Australian players. 

One of the current New Zealand players, Devon Conway scored 99 runs in 59 balls in a T20 match against Australia. In the IPL auctions, the player was open to selling for a base price of rs. 50 lakh but got unsold. So, Simon comments regarding Devon that good players who could have turned the tables got unsold, and Australians got sold for big prices.

After such a great performance by Devon Conway and a win by team New Zealand, Indian player Ravichandran Ashwin congratulated him for his performance on Twitter. He wrote that he was just 4 days late which means that if he had shown such performance a few days ago, he wouldn’t have left unsold in the auctions. Simon Doull replied to Ashwin’s tweet that it didn’t matter as New Zealand players were always overlooked for Australians.

Soon after Doull’s tweet, people started trolling him on tweeter and the former player posted another tweet in which he wrote that he didn’t mention any names and asked people to stop trolling him.

Conway, who hot unsold with a base price of Rs 50 Lakh, showed quite a great performance in the match and if he had played so well a few days ago, he would’ve got selected in the IPL auctions.

In the T20 match against Australia, Convey came as the opener and scored half-centuries four times in a row with a score of 93 not out, 91 not out, 69 runs, and 50 in previous matches respectively. Conway has become the first player from New Zealand to score five half-centuries in five consecutive matches.

Do you think such a good player remaining unsold was a good decision by the franchises?
