Chris Morris: News

The 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) auction saw some interesting battles between different franchises. One, in particular, ended up being the talk of the street as the player in question ended up being the most expensive in IPL history. It was an all-rounder from South Africa who was bought for Rs. 16.25 crore. What made Chris Morris the most expensive buy in the IPL history is the three-dimensional quality he brings to the team. An excellent death bowler, a batsman with a strike rate of over 150 on T20s, and an incredible athlete - there is not a lot that Morris can't do on a cricket field. He was a comparatively late entrant into cricket when he made his first-class debut at the age of 22 for North West in 2009. Morris grabbed global attention when he became an important part of the Highveld Lions team that reached the final of the 2012 Champions League T20. Soon, he made his international T20 debut in 2012. Morris made his ODI debut in 2013 and Test debut in 2016. Although not a regular for South Africa, Morris has always found suitors for him in T20 leagues around the world.
