Rajasthan Royals just missed their second win in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 by a margin of 5 runs on Wednesday (April 5) at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati. Although they lost the match, but the Royals definitely found a new talent in this match against Punjab Kings.
Yes, Dhruv Jurel - a 22-year-old who was bought by the franchise in IPL 2023 Player Auction in December 2022 for his base price of INR 20 Lakh. At a point where it seemed that Rajasthan are out of the match, Jurel’s two consecutive sixes off Arshdeep Singh followed by a four just brought them back in the game. In his innings in the middle, the young player scored unbeaten 32 off 16 deliveries.
