The Indian Premier League trade window was in its full swing that saw its final day on 15th of November. Many players were traded from their previous teams to the new ones. But, one franchise that hogged the spotlight was Rajasthan Royals, who were involved in the overhaul of their team. However, they also expressed their desire of getting the high-profile player Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers in a funny fashion.

Earlier, Royals traded their star all-rounder Krishanappa Gowtham to Kings XI Punjab in exchange they got Ankit Rajpoot. They also finalised a deal on the final day of the window and according to which Ajinkya Rahne will play for Delhi Capitals and in exchange they have got leg-spinner Mayank Markande and all-rounder Rahul Tewatia.

Meanwhile, the fans are also excited about the fact that all the eight IPL franchises will be releasing the list of the players retained and released on Friday with 5:00 PM being its deadline.

Rajasthan Royals also got involved in cheeky banter with a fan over the names of Kohli and AB de Villiers. It all occurred when a fan took to his Twitter handle in order to ask Rajasthan Royals if they are going to trade Sanju Samson to Royal Challengers Bangalore. And, it is well known that the Indian wicketkeeper has been a vital part of Rajasthan based franchise with fewer chances of him getting traded to any other team.
