Chennai, February 18: Young all-rounder and son of legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, Arjun Tendulkar was bought by Mumbai Indians for Rs 20 lakh in the mini-auction of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Thursday (February 18).

Like his father Sachin, Arjun will represent Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2021. Mumbai Indians also bought James Neesham for Rs 50 lakh while Sam Billings was sold to Delhi Capitals for Rs 2 crore. Arjun was a support bowler for Mumbai Indians last season at nets.

Pawan Negi, New Zealand batsman Martin Guptil, Australian batsman Shaun Marsh, Corey Anderson, and Rassie van der Dussen all went unsold at the auction.

All-rounder K Gowtham was also bought by CSK for Rs 9.5 crore making him the most expensive uncapped Indian player at IPL auction. Australian all-rounder Riley Meredith was picked up by Punjab Kings for Rs 8 crore.

Gowtham and Meredith have not played for their countries, but that didn't stop IPL (/topic/ipl) franchises from bidding big on them. Star wicket-keeper batsman Mohammed Azharuddeen was sold to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for Rs 20 lakh.

Chetan Sakariya was picked up by Rajasthan Royals for Rs 1.2 crore. He had his base price as Rs 20 lakh. Lukman Meriwala went to Delhi Capitals for Rs 20 lakh.

Indian pacer Umesh Yadav was bought by Delhi Capitals for Rs 1 crore and Sheldon Cottrell, Alex Carey, Sam Billings, and Kusal Perera all went unsold. Earlier, Glenn Maxwell (Rs 14.25 crore), Chris Morris (Rs 16.25 crore), and Jhye Richardson (Rs 14 crore) were the biggest buys in the ongoing auction.
