Rajasthan Royals yet against signed Jaydev Unadkat in IPL 2020 auction but at a bargain price of 3 crores INR. The left-arm Indian speedster had failed to prove his worth for Royals in the last couple of season. However, they have still shown their faith over him but it didn’t go down well with the fans, who trolled the pacer on social media in a hilarious fashion.

Unadkat was released by Rajasthan Royals earlier this year as he was not named in the list of their retained players for IPL 2020 and was sent to the auction pool. Considering his performances in 2018 and 2019, the chances of him getting picked by the same franchises were quite slim. But as per history, anything was expected from Rajasthan-based franchise.

Rajasthan Royals pay 3 crores INR for Jaydev Unadkat

It was a deja-vu for the left-arm pacer, who had gone through the same situation in the previous season as well. In 2018, Royals bought Unadkat after paying a humongous amount of 11.5 crores but he failed to perform as per his price tags. And, in the next season (2019), he was released by the franchise because of which he had to go under the hammer

However, Royals succeeded to get him back at a comparatively low price of 8.5 crores. In IPL 2020 auction, Royals applied the same strategy and bought him at a good and bargain price of 3 crores, with a cut of 5.5 crores from the old one.

In the bidding game, when auctioneer took the name of the left-arm pacer, Delhi Capitals were the first one to raise their bid and joined by Rajasthan Royals. Even Kings XI Punjab also joined the bidding war. The stakes were quite high on which franchise will manage to secure the services of Unadkat for the upcoming season. And, eventually, Royals successfully managed to get back their hot-favourite bowler back into their arsenal.

Jaydev Unadkat in his overall IPL career has played 73 games and has grabbed 77 wickets with a best of 5/25 and two 5-fers. The fans were left dumbfounded after Royals bought Unadkat back in IPL 2020 auction although he had two consecutive unimpressive seasons. Fans stormed twitter with some hilarious memes in order to troll the left-arm pacer.
