Bengal’s batting mainstay and Kolkata Knight Riders‘ (KKR) star batsman, Manoj Tiwary was not reatined by his home franchise, and was consequently bought by Delhi Daredevils (DD) for INR 2.8 crores.

 

The bidding for Tiwary started at Rs 2 crores. Once again it was a late start, and DD and Sunrisers Hyderabad kept on increasing the bid rather slowly. DD eventually bought him for 2.8 crores.

 

Surprisingly, KKR did not go for the ‘Right to Match’ card. Did it have anything to do with his injuries? Tiwary has been KKR’s most successful batsman after Gautam Gambhir.
