The Extraordinary Rise of IPL Millionaire Spencer Johnson

1 min read

A year ago, Spencer Johnson was a landscape gardener, but now he’s an IPL millionaire. His rags-to-riches story is arguably more extraordinary than Mitchell Starc’s, who became famous for his record-setting price tag. Johnson went to Gujarat Titans for AU$1.78million, despite having a base price of only AU$90,000.
Johnson’s cricket career was almost over a while back when he suffered a stress fracture to his foot. However, after a last-ditch surgery, he made a name for himself in the Brisbane Heat during the BBL campaign, especially for his nerves and performances at the death. Although he has also performed well in overseas leagues, Johnson believes that his strengths lie in the red-ball game and is hoping to focus on longer-format cricket.
