The Maharashtra batsman has has a superb Ranji Trophy 2013-14 season with the bat, and was expected to attract high bids from franchises during the IPL 2014 Auction.

 

His base price was Rs 30 lakhs, and Royal Challengers Bangalore made the first bid, and then Mumbai Indians came into the fray as well. Kings XI Punjab then raised the bid to Rs 40 lakhs, and then Kolkata Knight Riders entered at Rs 65 lakhs.

 

But ultimately, Royal Challengers Bangalore bid the highest for him, i.e. Rs 2 crores. The bid seemed final and Jadhav was ready to be sold to RCB, when Delhi decided to use their ‘Right to Match’ card and bought him back.
