Profile for Rahul Tewatia. Profile Updated On 22 Thursday October 2020 062430000000
Rahul Tewatia is an old-fashioned leg-spinner who prefers to give the ball air instead of firing it through. He made his Ranji Trophy debut for Haryana against Karnataka in 2013. Like many cricketer in the recent past, his breakthrough moment as a cricketer came in the Indian Premier League. He bowled a match-winning spell of 2/18 in his debut match for the Kings11 Punjab against KKR. In the same match he smashed 15 runs off 8 balls.
He was one of the surprise packages of the 2018 Indian Premier League auctions. The base price of the 24- year old-leg-spinner was just Rs 10 Lakhs. But within minutes the price soar to a massive 2.5 Crores. His previous team Kings11 Punjab were after him but eventually, Delhi Daredevils bought him at 3 Crores.
At Delhi Daredevils, Rahul will be playing alongside the veteran leg-spinner of the IPL, Amit Mishra. Rahul would like to use Mishra's invaluable experience to mature as a leg-spinner. He is decent with willow in hand too and can use long handle to good effect lower down the order. His batting ability was also one of the reasons behind his 3 Crore price.
IPL through the years
Rahul Tewatia is a wrist spinner and an extremely handy lower-order batsman, he is capable of playing the paddles and the scoops. And Tewatia as a package is a valuable addition to any IPL side. That was the reason he was one of the surprise packages of the 2018 Indian Premier League auctions. The base price of the 24- year old-leg-spinner was just Rs 10 Lakhs. But within minutes the price soar to a massive 2.5 Crores. His previous team Kings11 Punjab were after him but eventually, Delhi Daredevils bought him at 3 Crores. In the last edition, he was picked ahead of the veteran Amit Mishra by the Delhi franchise. Initially, the moved seemed justified but soon his performance dipped and Mishra replaced. In this season, Delhi has three wrist spinners in their team and it will be fascinating to see which one will figure in the playing eleven.
