Yudhvir Singh Charak made his IPL debut for Lucknow Super Giants against Punjab Kings on Saturday. On his debut, the 25-year-old scalped the first two wickets of PBKS and his heroics made it an evening to remember for all LSG fans.
Yudhveer first bowled Atharva Taide for 0 (3) and then Prabhsimran Singh for 4 (4) to put Punjab under pressure from the very beginning. Interestingly, the fans are also interested to know his salary for IPL 2023.
Yudhvir has been around the IPL circuit. He was earlier the net bowler for Mumbai Indians in 2020 and impressed the team to buy him in the next season. He was bought by MI in the 2021 IPL auction for his base price of Rs 50 lakhs. However, he did not get a game for the team. When it comes to his salary for the 2023 edition of the tournament, there was a significant drop in his salary. He joined LSG for Rs 20 lakh.
Yudhvir will be hoping to continue to make the most of his latest heroics and contribute to the team’s victory. It will be interesting to see how he fares in the rest of the season.
Earlier in the match, Punjab Kings won the toss and decided to bowl. Electing to bat first, LSG set a target of 160 runs. After starting the campaign with two wins, Punjab have lost both of their next two matches. Meanwhile, Lucknow have three wins from four matches and have looked like a trendsetter in the tournament so far. Let us see how the two can fare against each other at the Ekana Cricket Stadium.
