Phil Salt Expresses Disappointment at Being Overlooked in IPL 2024 Auction

1 min read

Phil Salt has expressed bewildered following the exclusion from the IPL 2024 auction. Salt, with a high base price of 1.5 crore, remained unsold despite expectations of being in demand after a successful debut season with Delhi Capitals. “It was a confusing morning,” Salt had said moments after he scored a second consecutive T20I hundred, adding, “I expected to be picked up… after the year that I’ve had, but these things happen. It’s part of the lottery of an auction.” Salt had previously spoken about his disappointment at failing to convert starts in an England shirt into big scores. However, he has emphatically closed that chapter with back-to-back centuries for England, tying their five-match series against the West Indies at two apiece. Salt’s innings of 119 off 57 balls in Trinidad was the highest-ever score in T20I by an English player. He also reached his century off 48 balls, muscling 10 sixes along the way.
