Uncapped player Krishnappa Gowtham: Karnataka’s off-spin all-rounder Krishnappa Gowtham became the most expensive uncapped player in the history of the Indian Premier League.
Gowtham said about the astonishing auction that coming to the team of Chennai Super Kings is like a dream come true.
It is a great feeling to replace his ideal Indian team’s experienced off-spinner Harbhajan Singh in this team.
CSK team has added Krishnappa Gowtham to their team with a huge amount of Rs 9 crore 25 lakh in Thursday’s IPL 2021 auction.
After Chennai bought Gautam, we said that we know what kind of franchise the team of Chennai Super Kings is.
She ensures that the best performance of the player comes out. I am very happy that I will play cricket with Mahendra Singh Dhoni and other players.
Karnataka’s all-rounder Gautam said, “We were in our commissions in Ahmadabad and there was a very tense atmosphere.” I was very nervous at the time and I was feeling very much shaken.
I was talking on a phone call with my wife. So hearty and Rohit Sharma, both of whom came to meet me were quite happy for me.
He hugged me and greeted me wholeheartedly and it was very special for me. Gautam, an off-spin all-rounder from Karnataka, has replaced Chennai as the leading off-spinner in place of his idol Harbhajan Singh.

After this, Gautam said that when you have an idol and you get a chance to fill his place, it feels very good.
I cannot express my happiness in words. This is something that we can only think about and sometimes when it comes true, the truth is much more surprising.
If we talk about the last two seasons of Gautam’s IPL, then he did not perform well for Punjab.
Krishnappa Gowtham played only 9 matches in both seasons and during this time he took only two wickets. With this, he scored runs with a high economy.
However, Chennai Super Kings bowling coach Laxmipathy Balaji said that the Chennai team has not been affected by their figures in the KXIP.
According to the Chennai bowling coach, the 32-year-old all-rounder has a lot of experience. And that’s why it can prove to be a big player for the franchise.
