Read a few reactions to the news made by the public below:
"Again Chris Morris goes huge in IPL , is his continued exclusion from the poor performing proteas more of a personal issue? He is dynamite in the short game, get him in."
"Mumbai Indians have been targetting fast-bowling all-rounders since the start of today's auction and now they have, Nathan Coulter Nile, James Neeshan and Marco Jansen. If they had bought Chris Morris this would not have been possible #IPL2021Auction #IPLAuction @mipaltan"
"@gmaxi has a simple agenda. Perform well in a few matches just before IPL. Go for a whooping 10-15 crores i the IPL. And then just relax and enjoy. 14 crores for him is ridiculous given the fact that he hardly ever performs in the IPL. #Maxwell #IPLAuction2021 #ChrisMorris"
