The staggering USD 610,000 that Delhi Daredevils shelled out to secure the service of Wayne Parnell has left the exciting South African pacer stunned.

"I never expected this - it's a huge sum of money!" was the reaction of the 20-year-old pacer.

Parnell told the Afrikaans daily 'Beeld' that he knew the Daredevils were interested in him after his national teammate and Daredevils player AB de Villiers had told him how much David Saker, bowling coach of the IPL side, was impressed with the left-arm pacer.

Meanwhile, his agent revealed that Parnell had in fact signed a contract with the Mumbai Indians but the IPL governing council decided that since he was an international player, he would be put through the auction, which rendered the contract null and void.

Parnell became the third highest paid South African cricketer in IPL, after JP Duminy and Jacques Kallis.
