Sameer Rizvi, the uncapped batter from Uttar Pradesh, relishes an "unreal feeling" after being bought by CSK for a whopping Rs 8.40 crore in the IPL 2024 auction in Dubai.

Rizvi, known for his aggressive middle-order batting in domestic cricket, emerged as one of the most expensive players in the IPL 2024 auction, adding excitement to Chennai Super Kings' squad.

After the auction, Sameer Rizvi expressed his elation, stating that there were no words to describe the overwhelming emotions he felt at that moment.

Phones rang incessantly as Rizvi became the most expensive uncapped player in the IPL 2024 auction, creating a buzz in cricket circles.

Former cricketer Abhinav Mukund revealed that an IPL scout likened Rizvi to the right-handed Suresh Raina, especially noting his prowess against spin and predicting multiple teams vying for him.

Former pacer RP Singh and cricket analyst Aakash Chopra believed that Rizvi could have been a perfect fit for Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2024, adding a much-needed finisher to their lineup.

Rizvi's ability to hit sixes at will caught the attention of experts, emphasizing his potential to be a game-changer in the lower-order.

Sameer Rizvi showcased his talent in the UP T20 League by scoring the fastest century in its inaugural edition, displaying his aggressive intent and batting prowess.

With an impressive average of 49.16 and a strike rate of 134.70 in domestic T20s, Rizvi's statistics underscore his consistency and impact as a T20 batsman.

Described as having a different intent in his batting and compared to a "Badoni-type player" by Suresh Raina, Rizvi's straighter bat style sets him apart in the cricketing landscape.
