England’s World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan has been picked up for a massive Rs 5.25 crore in the 2020 IPL auction.

Morgan’s base price was Rs 1.5 crore and after a tough bidding war between KKR and Delhi Capitals he was bought for Rs 5.25 crore by Kolkata Knight Riders.

Besides his captaincy skills, Morgan is a big-hitting batsman and one who can hold the middle-order together.

The left-hander's 71-ball 148 against Afghanistan in the 50-over World Cup will be remembered forever.
