English batter Phil Salt has expressed his confusion after going unsold during the IPL 2024 Auction. The 27-year-old was part of Delhi Capitals during the IPL 2023 edition and had put in a great performance. Delhi had finished 9th in the table and Phil Salt was one of the few leading lights during the campaign.


Fellow England star Harry Brook was picked up by Delhi Capitals for INR 4 Crores. Young Indian star Kumar Kushagra was the costliest player brought for INR 7.20 Crores. On Tuesday the England star scored yet another century against West Indies.

IPL 2024 season is likely to begin on the 22nd of March. Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins will be the leading lights of the tournament. The Australian duo were picked for the highest prize by KKR and SRH respectively.

English wicket-keeper Phil Salt has broken his silence after being snubbed during the IPL 2024 Auctions on Tuesday. The 27-year-old took out his frustration on the West Indian bowling scoring his second successive century of the series.

At the end of the game Phil Salt while speaking to the media said “It was a confusing morning. I was expecting to be picked up. Having gone there last year and done well and after the year that I’ve had, these things happen. It’s part of the lottery of an auction. It happens in the draft process as well. There’s a few lads in out dressing room who are going to have a very good Christmas and I’m over the moon for them”

After his match winning ton, the 27-year-old said “I’m playing good cricket. I’m doing what I came out here to do. More importantly than that the boys have pulled together and shown what a good team we are. The West Indies are a very good side that we are playing against so to win successive games and force the decider in a couple of day’s I’m chuffed”

Phil Salt hit 119 runs off 57 balls with 10 sixes during his knock. The 27-year-old helped his side score 267 on the board and win the game with a massive margin. The series is now locked at 2-2 with the final game to be played in Trinidad and Tobago.
