“If Mitchell Starc plays all 14 matches and bowls his full quota of four overs, each ball will cost Rs 7,60,000. Amazing. But here’s a question: Who is the best bowler in the world? The best in IPL.” Who is the bowler? His name is Jasprit Bumrah. He gets 12 crores and Stark around 25. it’s wrong. I’m not angry with anyone’s money. I wish everyone gets paid a lot but how is that fair?” Chopra said in a video on her YouTube channel.
Chopra added that if Kohli and Bumrah request a release from their respective franchises, they will be bid Rs 42 crore and Rs 35 crore respectively.
“This is the Indian Premier League. How is one getting so little and the other so much? Loyalty is royalty. If tomorrow, Bumrah said to MI, ‘Please release me and I will put my name in the auction.’ ‘ Or if Kohli says it. Likewise for RCB, their prices will go up, right? And that’s how it should be? If this auction market decides that Starc is worth Rs 25 crore, it will also decide that Is Kohli worth Rs 42 crore or Rs 35 crore? If it is not happening then there is a mistake.”

Chopra also proposed a solution to address the controversy, suggesting the imposition of a cap on the spending cap for foreign players.
“One solution is to put a cap on the amount set aside for foreign players. For example – if you have a purse of Rs 200 crore to field a team, of which 1.5 or 1.75 is for Indian players, and rest is for foreigners. When that happens, it will give you parity, which is not there now. You can feel the disparity now, which is not good. Of course. SRH has looked at Cummins as a captaincy option. If not, then Rs.20.50 crore doesn’t make sense. Not for someone who doesn’t have the greatest IPL record. Class player but he The T20 numbers are 50-50,” he added.
