"Waiting for a surprise call like Chris Gayle" : S Sreesanth after IPL auction drop

The Kerala speedster last played in the IPL back in 2013, representing Rajasthan Royals (RR).

S Sreesanth, the tainted Indian fast bowler, couldn’t make the cut for the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) auction, scheduled to take place in Chennai on February 18. The 38-year-old registered himself in the auction at a base price of INR 75 lakhs, but he couldn’t attract any of the franchises.

The Kerala speedster last played in the IPL back in 2013, representing Rajasthan Royals (RR). Previously 1114 cricketers threw their hat in the ring for the auction. The same has now been reduced to 292 players, out of which 164 are Indians.

In the meantime, Sreesanth hasn’t shown many signs of disappointment by any means after missing out on the final list of cricketers. He uploaded a video on his Instagram handle where he expressed gratitude to his fans and supporters, for being with him through thick and thin.

Sreesanth said that he hasn’t lost hopes by any stretch of the imagination and would be putting in the hard yards to stage a comeback.

“Hopefully I will get a surprise call like the way Chris Gayle did and started scoring. Nobody had picked him,” said Sreesanth in an Instagram video on Friday. Gayle went unsold in the 2011 IPL auction but came into the Royal Challengers Bangalore squad as a replacement for Dirk Nannes and never looked back.
