England all-rounder Liam Livingstone has been chosen by the Punjab Kings for winning Rs 11.50 Crore in the mega auction for the upcoming season, bolstering their batting order. Punjab has also roped in Shikhar Dhawan (8.25 Crore), Jonny Bairstow (6.75 Crore) and Kagiso Rabada (9.25 Crore) at auction.
The mega auction for IPL 2022 saw players getting huge sums from franchises to bolster their squads. The first day of the auction concluded on Saturday in Bangalore and the remaining process will be done on Sunday. There were also some surprises in the auction as some players received a huge amount of money unexpectedly while some players remained unsold in the bidding process.
The Punjab Kings paid Rs 11.50 Crore for England all-rounder Liam Livingstone to acquire his services. There has been an intense bidding war for the player as he has batting skills as well as bowling and leg-spin.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the move.

A very good and useful buy, Liam Livingstone sold to Punjab Kings for 11.50 CR.
They didn’t take Aiden Markram, but took a slightly better T20 player than him.
