NEW DELHI: Rajasthan Royals (RR) initiated the bidding for the West Indian power-hitter Rovman Powell, sparking a heated contest with the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). After a fierce back-and-forth, Royals ultimately secured Powell’s services, sealing the deal at a substantial Rs 7.40 crore at the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 auction in Dubai on Tuesday.
