TATA IPL Mega Auction 2022: Odeon Smith, the extremely skilled player was bought for 6 crore by Punjab Kings
Odeon Smith was bought for 6 crore by Punjab Kings.
There was an intense war going on between Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad with Rajasthan Royals in the scene for the million dollar player.
In the second ODI, Odean Smith picked up two wickets, removing Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant. In 7 overs, he gave away only 29 runs and picked up two crucial wickets. India’s batters were troubled by Smith’s pace and bounce as he bowled with full title and control.
The West Indies’ captain hit a quickfire 24 as they chased 238 against India in the 2nd ODI, giving India a major scare. He was a member of the West Indies U19 World Cup squad in 2016 and has continued to progress. Having made his senior international debut in 2018, the all-rounder has played four one-day internationals and seven Twenty20 internationals for West Indies. Last year, Smith picked up 18 wickets in 11 matches in the Caribbean Premier League, ranking second.
