"It is the big story for today and I never thought he was going to make so much money today, everybody has done their homework well, he is a quality player," said Kiran More on Prabhsimran Singh's inclusion.   -  twitter

In June this year, wicketkeeper batsman Prabhsimran Singh hammered the opposition bowlers all over the park during his 301-ball 298 - studded with 29 boundaries and 13 sixes - against Amritsar in the semifinal of the Punjab U-23 Inter-District cricket tournament.

Four months later, Prabhsimran led India U-19 to Asia Cup glory.  And now two months down the line, he has hogged the limelight again, this time with a hefty price tag at the IPL 2019 auction.

What's more, it's windfall for the Singh family with Prabhsimran getting signed by the Royal Challengers Bangalore for Rs 4.8 Crore, and cousin brother Anmolpreet going to Mumbai Indians for Rs 80 Lakhs.

"It is the big story for today and I never thought he was going to make so much money today, everybody has done their homework well, he is a quality player," said Star Sports expert Kiran More.

"When you’re looking at a future it is great, he is just 17, he has got to work on his wicket keeping, but as a batsman he is great, brilliant player, I would say right hand Rishabh Pant. He played at an emerging trophy in Sri Lanka, he got a few sixes, but he is a quality player with potential," More added.
