‘There was a dog-fight for Gautam Gambhir’: KKR CEO on buying the opener in IPL 2011 auction
KKR CEO, Venky Mysore was on the auction table in 2011. They went for the most expensive buy of 2011 auction, Indian opener Gautam Gambhir. As Delhi Daredevils decided not to retain the southpaw. The first name in 2011 auctions Gautam Gambhir. My instinct said that it was the right thing to do. Even though it exceeded our circuit break-up because the Kochi team was equally motivated. There was a dog-fight for that, he said.
