<p>In a Q&A on his YouTube channel, AB identifies England’s renowned all-rounder Sam Curran, who plays for Punjab Kings (PBKS), as a player he believes has been overpaid in the Indian Premier League.</p>
<p>“I prefer not to be controversial,” said the former captain of South Africa. However, I believe that he has been overpaid for a number of years.</p>
<p>He does think Curran is a decent player, however. “He had a great World Cup, but that was quite a while ago. He hasn’t, in my opinion, had a great IPL run lately. Furthermore, he hasn’t performed very well for England, according to de Villiers.</p>
<p>Even if de Villiers thinks the young English player is overvalued, he also shows that he has the ability to put on some incredible performances, as most elite players do.</p>
<p>Nothing detrimental to Sam Curran. He’s still a fantastic player in my opinion. He’s simply been overpaid, in my opinion, for a few years. He said, “Maybe it would have been wise for them to let him go to free up some cash to sign alternative players.</p>
<p>Prior to Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins, Sam Curran created history in the IPL 2023 auction by becoming the most expensive purchase ever made by PBKS for Rs 18.5 crore.</p>
<p>When Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) purchased Cummins for Rs 20.5 crore in the IPL 2024 auction, he shattered Curran’s record and became the first player to ever earn more than Rs 20 crore.</p>
<p>The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), owned by Shah Rukh Khan, paid Rs 24.75 crore for Starc, making it the most expensive purchase in the history of the IPL auction.</p>
