IPL Auction 2019: Jaydev Unadkat, Varun Chakravarthy break Rs 8 crore barrier


The right hander, who was picked by Kings XI Punjab for price of INR 1 crore at the IPL 2018 Auction following his impressive 2017 with the Rising Pune Supergiants, played only 5 games in which he could muster only 47 runs, thus failing to leave a mark with his lackluster performances in the limited opportunities he had received in the season.

Indian Test player Hanuma Vihari was sold to Delhi Capitals for Rs two crore, four times his base price. However, no franchise showed interest in picking the sixer king.

The Royals were locked in an intense battle with Delhi Capitals and later on with Chennai Super Kings before getting back the services of the paceman, whom they released for the auction. Given that they had snapped up the left-arm medium-pacer for Rs 11.5 crores in February, Unadkat might be feeling robbed of Rs 3.1 crores.
