‘I have never seen this much money,’ says Morris on stunning IPL

 

Johannesburg: The bidding war that his nametriggered at the IPL players auction left Chris Morris’ head spinning and the South African all-rounder conceded that he has never seen the kind of money he would now be drawing.

“I have never in my life seen this much money,” said Morris, who was bought for a whopping $625,000 (Rs 3.3 crore) by the Chennai Super Kings, 31 times more than his base price of $ 20,000.

Morris was sought by the Mumbai Indians and the Royal Challengers Bangalore as well but they were outbid by CSK at the auction in Chennai where only 37 of the 108 players in fray managed to find buyers.
