Despite a strong 2023 season with the Delhi Capitals, Phil Salt of England expressed shock and bewilderment at being passed over in the IPL 2024 auction. After an outstanding debut IPL season in which he scored 217 runs in nine matches at a strike rate of 163.91, including two half-centuries, the right-handed batsman, whose base price was INR 1 crore, failed to draw any bids. Salt, who was released by the Capitals for the 2024 edition, was surprised that he wasn’t included in the auction because he had anticipated a better result.

The Sussex cricketer shared; “It was a confusing morning. I was expecting to be picked up, having gone there last year and done well, and the year that I’ve had,” an article from sportskeeda.com mentioned.

The cricketing community has taken notice of Salt’s recent international exploits. In the current five-match Twenty20 International series, his hundreds in the third and fourth games against the West Indies helped England compile a commanding total of 267-3. In addition to demonstrating his extraordinary talent, his two successive centuries guarantee his vital place in England’s squad. Without a doubt, his outstanding batting performances have established him as a highly promising player who is ready to leave a lasting impression in the next few games.

Though Phil Salt’s century helps England even the series, the West Indies’ blistering batting is insufficient

The right-hander blasted a brilliant 57-ball 119 in a pivotal fourth Twenty20 International that had to be won at the Brian Lara International Cricket Stadium. Reaching this milestone in the fifteenth over after a single from Gudakesh Motie, the 27-year-old displayed incredible batting ability. Additionally impressive were captains Jos Buttler and Liam Livingstone, who both crushed half-centuries and made major contributions to solid partnerships with the centurion.
