Devdutt Padikal: The auction bid challenge for the young and top-performing Indian opener Devdutt Padikal was a interesting to witness as Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians tried to buy the promising opening batter, but Devdutt was eventually bought by Rajasthan Royals. Rajasthan Royals snatched up the reliable talent for a bargain sum of 7.75 crore. Devdutt’s incredible form is likely to continue, as he has a lot to offer his side in the 2017 IPL season.

Devdutt, the IPL’s budding star for 2020, has had a fantastic IPL career, scoring six half-centuries and one astonishing century in just 29 games. So far in his IPL career, Devdutt has scored 884 runs in 29 innings. Devdutt has become a global sensation as a result of his outstanding performance in front of the world’s best pacers despite his inadequate experience.

Prasidh Krishna: Prasidh Krishna, the in-form and spectacular pacer for Team India, is picked up by Rajasthan Royals for an interesting amount of Rs. 10 crore. Krishna’s contribution to his new side, Rajasthan Royals, will benefit significantly the franchise, as his considerable experience in the IPL format establishes him as a successful pacer. Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans also attempted to purchase the in-form player, but only Rajasthan Royals was successful.

The pacer has settled in well with the Indian team and is progressively improving with some impressive performances. In recent seasons, it all started with the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). After being released by KKR, the new franchise  now has the opportunity to pounce on him and use his ability to generate extra bounce to strengthen the team’s current pace assault.
