Recently, Former pacer Shoaib Akhtar was asked which Pakistan player would attract the highest bid if they are allowed to play in the IPL.

Akhtar said in jest “I think me even if I am on wheelchairs”. Akhtar later went on to take Babar Azam‘s name.

“It would be great to see Babar Azam and Virat Kohli opening the innings together in the IPL one day. What an exciting moment that would be. In the auction, Babar would go for 15-20 crore INR and could be the most expensive Pakistan player,” Akhtar said while speaking to Sportskeeda.
