RR Acquires Rovman Powell for INR 7.40 Crore, Travis Head Joins SRH



RR secured the services of West Indies T20I skipper Rovman Powell for a whopping INR 7.40 crores in the IPL auction held in Dubai. Powell, known for his powerful batting, had a disappointing season with the Delhi Capitals last year, managing only seven runs from three matches with an abysmal average of 2.33 and a strike-rate of 77.77. Initially priced at INR 1 crore, Powell attracted interest from Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) before the Rajasthan Royals entered the fray. In another notable transaction, Travis Head was purchased by Sunrisers Hyderabad for a substantial sum of INR 6.80 Crore. The Australian cricketer played a pivotal role in his team’s success at the ICC World Cup 2023. Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings engaged in a heated bidding war before the 2016 champions successfully signed the player.
