IPL 2020: Ajinkya Rahane bartered over to Delhi Capitals

Posted On

A crucial exchange decision on the final day of the trading window will see Ajinkya Rahane playing from Delhi Capitals in the upcoming IPL 2020. The move also sees spinners Mayank Markande and Rahul
Tewatia moving to Rajasthan Royal in exchange for Rahane.


Markande has become the first player to be exchanged twice as he was with Mumbai Indians before moving to Delhi capitals.

Delhi Capitals co-owner Parth Jindal in his statement said: “I am extremely honored to welcome one of India’s most stellar and consistent batsmen, Ajinkya Rahane, to the DC family. When the franchise underwent a revamp last year, a decision was made to keep Indian players at its core. The result was there for everyone to see, with the likes of Shikhar Dhawan and Ishant Sharma performing brilliantly for us, and complimenting the youth that DC has in Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, and Prithvi Shaw, among others.”

He also praised both the spinners: “Rahul and Mayank are both extremely talented cricketers with a bright future ahead of them. I am confident they will excel at Rajasthan Royals.”


Rahane has played 106 matches for the Royals scoring 2810 run with an average of 34.26., which also makes him one of the leading run-getter for them.
