Chris Morris turned the costliest cricketer within the historical past of the Indian Premier League throughout the 2021 Auction. He was purchased for Rs 16.25 crore by Rajasthan Royals.

“This is going to sound harsh, but he went for a lot more money than I would have ever paid for, to be completely honest. I just don’t think that he’s worth that kind of number. I think there’s pressure on him,” Pietersen stated in Star Sports’ Select Dug-out.
“He’s not a first choice for the South African side. So, I think we’re expecting too much. There’s too much talked about him. I don’t think he’s the kind of guy that’s going to consistently deliver. I mean this with the greatest deal of respect,” he additional stated.
The former England captain additional stated that whereas Morris has the “attributes,” he’s not a constant performer.
“There’s nothing special about what he does, and if he does run-in, he’ll run-in for two games. And then he’ll go missing for a few games and it’s not the kind of thing that you should be seeing. He has the attributes,” Pietersen stated.
Rajasthan Royals conceded a 10-wicket loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore of their fourth recreation final evening, and are at present reeling on the backside of the desk with two factors.
