The IPL Auction for season 13 of the tournament was held yesterday and a total of 62 players were picked by the eight franchises. There were some great biddings that were seen here with Australian all-rounder Pat Cummins as the most expensive buy for Rs 15.50 crores by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). He has become the most expensive foreign player in the history of IPL. But there was another reason why KKR became one of the highlights of the evening, as a player named Shahrukh Khan had no takers. Actor Shahrukh Khan is one of the owners of the franchise, so when official IPL Twitter account tweeted about Tamil Nadu player by the same name, going unsold, funny memes and reactions started pouring in. The tweet of Shahrukh Khan unsold was going viral because of the funny reactions and memes made on the actor.
