Bowler Harshal Patel got a whopping INR 10.50 crore paycheck from Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL 2022 mega auction. This was after he was released by the RCB before the auction despite picking up 32 wickets in the IPL 2021 and earning the Purple Cap.
Harshal Patel says that his cost tag doesn’t matter which he is as it were concerned approximately the execution of his skillset on the field. He as of late joined RCB’s training camp to start arrangements for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) season.
Patel, in a video uploaded by RCB’s official Instagram handle, said that the price tag was irrelevant and that it wouldn’t have distracted him from his original game plan.
He said: “I am going to play exactly the same way I played last year, whether I play for 10 lakhs or 10.75 crores. It doesn’t really matter. No new skills, all I really hope for is (that) I am more precise in my execution, I am more tight in my execution and if I do that then I’ll be very happy. What I bowl is what I know and that’s not going to change.”
Harshal Patel said: “But what will change is how you adapt to these conditions. How do you package your six balls? Because if I am playing in Chennai I’ll bowl more slower balls; if I am playing in these batting-friendly bouncy pitches, I am going to package my overs a bit differently. It’s just about adapting to conditions and adapting to the opposition. I feel that any good player should be able to do that.”
