Krishnappa Gowtham, the off spinner and hard-hitting lower-order batsman from Karnataka, was purchased by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for a big sum of ₹ 9.25 crores making him the most expensive uncapped player in IPL history. The 32-year old has played 62 T20 matches and although he does not score big runs or pick a heap of wickets, what stands out is his ability to restrict the opposition batsmen and hit the long ball in the lower order.
Gowtham has an economy rate of 7.6 having picked 41 wickets and a batting strike rate of 159.24 in T20 cricket. He made his first-class debut back in 2012 against Uttar Pradesh and has a hundred to his credit. He has an excellent record with the ball too picking 166 wickets in 42 first-class matches at an average of 23.98.
Gowtham is a seen as a T20 specialist and has attracted big money in previous auctions too - he was bought for a sum of ₹ 6.2 crore in the 2018 Auctions by Rajasthan Royals. He was bought by the Mumbai Indians for ₹ 2 crore in 2017.
The off spinner was in good form with the ball in the 2021 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy - his best performance came against Jammu and Kashmir in Bengaluru where he returned with 2-13 in 4 overs.
Gowtham gave a glimpse of his power-hitting in a Karnataka Premier League (KPL) match for Bellary Tuskers against Shivamogga Lions in 2019 where he smashed a brilliant 134 off just 56 deliveries and also returned with 8 wickets conceding just 15 runs in his spell.
