Veda Krishnamurthy Surprised By Jemimah’s Auction Price

Though Smrithi Mandhana becomes the most expensive player of the WPL 2023 Auction, Jemimah Rodrigues’s price over Harmanpreet Kaur becomes one of the talkative points of the event.

Current Indian Women’s team captain Harmanpreet Kaur fetched a price of INR 1.8 crore while Jemimah Rodrigues was signed for INR 2.2 crore.

Harmanpreet, who was one of the first players to come up for the auctions, was picked by Mumbai Indians while Jemimah Rodrigues was picked by Delhi Capitals for INR 2.2 crores.

On the other hand, Deepti Sharma went to the UP Warriorz after an intense burst of bidding that saw her price tag go up from Rs 50 lakh to Rs 2.6 crore.

“I’m a little bit surprised that Jemimah has gone for more money than what Harmanpreet Kaur has, because the kind of experience that Harman brings in is invaluable. But at the same time I’m not at all surprised at the price tag of Deepti Sharma because she brings in two skills, and is a potential captaincy choice as well.

So that is not surprising. But at the same time, this is how auctions go. You have to figure out what is the amount left in the bank and we’ll probably see this throughout the day,” Krishnamurthy, who is a part of Viacom18 ’s expert panel for the first-ever WPL auction, told The IE.
