An ecstatic Shreyas revealed that he plans to a buy a house with the money he will receive from the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Delhi Daredevils.

“I haven’t thought about it yet but yes I’ll buy a house or a property with the money, “ Shreyas who was playing for Mumbai in a Ranji-Trophy match against Delhi, told CricketCountry.

 

 

The 20-year-old youngster who hails from Mumbai never imagined that he would be sold for such a high price.

“I was playing a Ranji Trophy match that time. I didn’t even see the auction. One of my teammates told me about the news and I just couldn’t believe it. I was expecting to be bought for 60 lacs or 70 lacs but 2.6 cr is a big amount. I didn’t celebrate much as I was still awe and I kept asking my teammates if the news was true,” quipped Iyer.

Shreyas, who came into the limelight at the 2014 Under-19 World Cup for India, is looking forward to the IPL.

“I’m looking forward to sharing dressing room with big guns of the cricket and it is a great opportunity for me to play in the IPL,” he signed off.
