IPL Mega Auctions: U-19 all-rounder Raja Bawa will represent Punjab Kings

U-19 star Raj Bawa gets sold for ₹2 crore to team Punjab Kings.

Team Punjab Kings will be represented by U-19 star all-rounder Raj Angad Bawa, who was bought for 2 crore, a beloved local youngster from Himachal Pradesh. Punjab Kings won the bidding war, while Mumbai Indians tried unsuccessfully to get him.

Raj Bawa was a hero with both the bat and the ball during India’s title-winning U19 World Cup campaign. With the bat, the youthful all-rounder scored 252 runs in ten games, averaging 63.00 and striking out over 100 times. He took five-wicket haul in the U-19 World Cup final against England. He’ll be one of the most sought-after uncapped all-rounders at the blockbuster auction, without a question.
