IPL Mega Auction: West Indies hitter Odean Smith gets picked by Punjab Kings for ₹6.0 crore

TATA IPL 2022 will feature Odean Smith representing Punjab Kings.

Odean Smith, the premier and in-form hitting all-rounder for the West Indies, is sold to Punjab Kings for ₹6 crore. The bowling all-hammering rounder’s stroke will help his franchise throughout the game. SRH tried their hand to buy Odean at the auction, but is was Punjab who confirmed the last bid on the hitter.

A day before the IPL 2022 mega auction, West Indies all-rounder Odean Smith showed off his big-hitting talent against India in the third ODI in Ahmedabad on Friday. Smith smashed three sixes and three fours in a scorching 36-run knock in 18 balls. With India on the verge of triumph, Smith went all out to show what he can do with the bat just a day before the IPL mega-final.
