IPL 2020 auction was held on 19 December 2019. Australian player Chris Lynn was the first in the auction list on which bid had to be done and Mumbai Indians bought him at his base price which was very shocking for the cricket world that no one is interested to buy him this year and other teams did not bid on the Chris Lynn while Mumbai Indians did a bid on the last moment on him and Chris Lynn sold out to them. Though many fans were expecting to fetch more amount than he actually got.
Now, Rohit Sharma has reacted on buying of Chris Lynn by the Mumbai Indians in the auction. Rohit Sharma did an interesting message to Mumbai Indians during team members were live on Instagram. Now, Rohit Sharma is confused about whether he will open for Mumbai Indians or not in the Upcoming IPL 2020 edition.

They have already three opening batsmen like DeKock, Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav. Now, They have bought Chris Lynn in this IPL auction and Mumbai Indians coach Mahila Jaywardane will not want to sit out hard hitter Chris Lynn on the bench and they also can’t sit out a batsman like Quinton DeKock. Now, it is a very serious issue that has stood out in front of Head coach Mahila Jaywardane to select final Playing 11.
Amidst these controversies, Rohit Sharma has sent an interesting message to Mumbai Indians during the live video, “where will Rohit Sharma bat?” Though this question is also fair from the Rohit Sharma side. Because If Chris Lynn and Quinton Dekock will play together in the IPL then will Rohit Sharma come at number 3?
