The 25-year-old West Indies batsmen went under the hammer in the IPL mega auction after the marquee segment ended.
As soon as the power hitter’s name was announced by Huge Edmeades, who is the auctioneer for the IPl season, there was a huge tussle between DC and RR to get the West Indies player and the battle was won by Rajasthan Royals who spent 8.50 crores to get the services of the flamboyant batsmen.
Delhi capitals were not able to retain their star middle-order batsmen as they lost the bidding war with Rajashtan Royals.
A total of 600 cricketers are set to go under the hammer during the two-day TATA IPL mega auction in Bengaluru on February 12th and 13th. Of the total players, available 229 are capped players, 364 are uncapped players and seven belong to the Associate Nations.
