Gujarat Titans secured Robin Minz, a promising tribal cricketer from Jharkhand, at the IPL 2024 auction held in Dubai on Tuesday. The 21-year-old, with a base price of Rs 20 lakh, garnered considerable attention from various franchises, leading to a competitive bidding scenario that eventually saw him join Gujarat Titans. Known for his great batting skills, Minz is a left-handed batter and a devoted fan of MS Dhoni. His cricketing journey is guided by experienced coach Chanchal Bhattacharya, who was also the mentor of the former Indian captain.
Originally from the Gumla district of Jharkhand, Minz came into the limelight when it was noticed by the Mumbai Indians, who facilitated his training in the United Kingdom.
Currently residing in the Namkum area of Ranchi, Jharkhand’s capital, Minz, despite not yet representing the state in the Ranji Trophy, has been part of Jharkhand’s U19 and U25 teams.
His father, a retired army personnel, now works as a guard at the Birsa Munda airport in Ranchi, and Minz shares his home with his two sisters.
