WATCH: RCB's Mike Hesson is Spot on with Steve Smith Bid Prediction in IPL Auction 2021

While everyone is still in shock over Steve Smith’s bid in the IPL auction 2021 — former Australia skipper was bought for 2.2 cr by Delhi Capitals — team RCB aren’t, as they plotted his cheap purchase. In a video uploaded by RCB, team management, including Mike Hesson can be seen mock-bidding for Smith, and then pulling out of the bid.

In the video, Hesson can also be seen saying, that the team should not bid for him since he does not bowl. “Whoever bats there has to be able to bowl,” Hesson says. The latter goes on to say, that the player should be able to bowl as well, an option that Glenn Maxwell provides them. The Aussies star was picked by RCB for 14.25 cr.

“I’m not even sure anyone is going to bid for him in the first round,” Hesson later says.

“Best thing we can do, is bid for him early and then get out,” he says. “So, if CSK buy him, for example, they can’t go for Maxwell,” Hesson says. “They’re the only ones at the moment who can outbid us.”

“And if we’re left with Steve Smith for Rs 2 crore, it’s not the end of the world,” he adds.

Former Australia captain Michael Clarke has hinted that batsman Steve Smith might pull out of the Indian Premier League 2021 citing injury after being picked for a relatively small amount at the auction. Smith, the Australian batting mainstay was picked for Rs 2.2 crore by Delhi Capitals at Thursday’s auction after he was released by Rajasthan Royals (RR) for below-par performance in IPL 2020. RR, who retained Smith in 2018 for Rs 12.5 crore, finished at the bottom in the points table in IPL 2020 under Smith’s captaincy.
