New Delhi: South African batsman David Miller, who won the final ticket to Gujarat Titans (GT) in the Qualifier 1 match of IPL 2022, did not find any buyer on the first day of the mega auction held before this season of IPL. Even David Miller's old franchise Rajasthan Royals (RR) did not bid on him on the first day.
David Miller, who went unsold on the first day of the auction with a base price of Rs 1 crore, might not have imagined that a big bet would be played on him on the second day. Actually, Rajasthan Royals started bidding for him on the second day, but as soon as Rajasthan showed interest in David Miller, Gujarat Titans also started bidding on the bid and the stake reached 3 crores. GT made the final bid of Rs 3 crore, but after that Rajasthan Royals did not try to bid further and David Miller, who remained unsold on the first day, joined the team of Gujarat for Rs 3 crore.
GT's management put their trust in him and gave him a chance in every single match. On this occasion, he came true and he has won many matches for the team, in which the most notable match was Qualifier 1 (68 runs in 38 balls). Left-handed batsman David Miller has scored 449 runs in 15 matches so far and he is the second highest run-scorer for Gujarat this season. He has scored runs this season with an average of over 64 and a strikerate of over 141. He has hit 29 fours and 22 sixes in the tournament so far. Known as Killer Miller, this player has worked to get the GT out of trouble many times.
