One of the biggest disappointment this season of Indian Premier League (IPL) is the flop show of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) prized possession Manish Pandey. Unfortunately, the middle-order batsman looked-bleak this season. Well, he has been highlighted due to the heavy price-tag of INR 11 crore during the two-day mega-auction in January. this year.

Two of Karnataka-based Indian premier batsmen headlined during the auction in Bengaluru. On the other side, KL Rahul went the same amount to Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) which was shelled out by Sunrisers for Manish.
