2. Jaydev Unadkat | Rajasthan Royals (RR)
For quite a few years now, Jaydev Unadkat has been a hot property at the IPL auction. Ever since he has had a highly impressive season for Rising Pune Supergiant where he picked up 24 wickets in 12 games, teams have been highly interested in him. Moreover, he is one of the most consistent bowlers at the domestic level in India and is regularly amongst the wickets.
He fetched INR 11.5 crores in the IPL 2018 auction and was sold to the Rajasthan Royals (RR). But he failed to impress and only picked up 11 wickets in 15 games. Moreover, he was highly expensive. Thus, RR used this same strategy for IPL 2019 and put him back in the auction pool only to get him at a cheaper price.
But to their surprise, four teams were interested in the left-arm pacer and his price went all the way up to INR 8.40 crores. Unadkat, however, had a dismal outing in IPL 2019 as well. So, it wouldn’t be a surprise if RR uses the same strategy for him once again.
