Unmukt Chand, the former India under-19 captain has been bought by the Rajasthan Royals for Rs 65 lakhs during the IPL 7 Auction. The right-hander has been touted as one of the most promising players in the country and there was some interest for him in this auction.

 

During the last three seasons, Chand was with the Delhi Daredevils. He did not have a very successful time at the IPL though and this presents an opportunity to start afresh. Delhi did not exercise their Right to Match during the IPL 7 Auction.

 

Rajasthan Royals have had a lot of their funds saved for this day and are continuing with their “moneyball” concept.
