Though he was not one of the most expensive among all the players, Chahal was at the top in terms of specialist spinners. The Royals are known for their cheeky humour on social media and they stayed true to their reputation. RR’s official Twitter handle shared a hilarious chat with Chahal after bagging him in the auction.

The leg-spinner is not behind in terms of humour and he was the first to DM the Royals on Twitter asking if they are doing well. Conversationa rolled on nicely since then with both taking hilarious digs at each other. In the end, the chat ended with Yuzvendra Chahal saying that things will go well with him at the Royals camp.

Here’s the hilarious convo:

RR pick a total of 8 players on Day 1 of auction

Meanwhile, as far as the mega auction is concerned, Rajasthan Royals picked a total of 8 players on the opening day of the auction having retained three players before stretching their squad size to 11. Apart from Chahal, they managed to pick Ravi Ashwin, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Shimron Hetmyer, Devdutt Padikkal, Riyan Parag and KC Cariappa.

They still have a total of INR 12.15 crore in their purse and will be keen on bagging a few more top players in their squad. Maximum of 25 players can be selected in the squad and only 8 of them can be overseas. Including retained players, the Royals have only three overseas players currently and it will be interesting to see which players they go for with their remaining purse.
