IPL 2020: Twitter explodes as franchises go big for Cummins, Maxwell and Morris

The IPL auctions are underway and it is raining money for some big names. Many people expected the likes of Pat Cummins, Glenn Maxwell and Chris Morris to go for big bucks. And their predictions were spot on as the franchises embarked on a bidding for these players.

Pat Cummins created history as Kolkata Knight Riders made him the most expensive foreign purchase in IPL history for 15.50 crores. KKR entered the bidding process quite late, leaving RCB and DC stunned after they had done most of the bidding. Glenn Maxwell was also in big demand as DC and KXIP fought tooth and nail for him. The Punjab-based franchise eventually won the battle, bringing the Australian back to the franchise. RCB also strengthened their bowling department by adding South African Chris Morris to their ranks. Morris will also undoubtedly strengthened their lower middle-order.

Twitter went crazy as the bids were coming in left, right and centre for these players. Here we take a look at some of the best reactions:
