"Iyer is a consistent player, controls the innings, but also with his experience in captaining in the IPL, I think PBKS and RCB will go for Iyer, KKR might even have a dab as well. I think he will go for about 4 crores.

All 10 teams will be very aggressive going after Shami, I wouldn’t be surprised if he is up about the 5 Cr mark or more. Don’t see Warner going for anything more than 4 Cr," he further added.

Moreover, he also shared a few words about the Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and said, "Ashwin, very economical with the ball, good lower-order batter, last year did not pick up the wickets, but still a very valuable player. I think he will go for 5-7 crores."
