IPL Mega Auctions: U-19 pacer Rajvardhan Hangargekar will represent Chennai Super Kings

U-19 bowling-allrounder Rajvardhan Hangargekar gets sold for ₹1.5 crore to team Chennai Super Kings.

Rajvardhan Hangargekar, a U-19 bowling all-rounder, will play for the Chennai Super Kings, who paid 1.5 crore for him. Chennai Super Kings won the bidding war, while Mumbai Indians tried but failed to acquire him.

A bowler clocking 140 kph has been as rare in the Under-19 World Cup as India not making the final since speed guns were added to enhance the viewing experience. Rajvardhan Hangargekar bowled faster than his previous best of 139.3 kph in India’s semifinal against Australia. His fastest in the semifinal was 141.7 kph.
It’s no surprise that Hangargekar has been the tournament’s talk of the town
