In a significant move at the IPL 2024 Auction, Harshal Patel, a former standout performer for RCB in previous seasons, has fetched a staggering bid of 11.75 Crore, landing him in the roster of Punjab Kings.
Released by RCB ahead of the auctions after a lukewarm 2023 season, Patel’s value soared by an additional crore in this auction.
Punjab Kings strategically aimed to secure a high-quality Indian bowler alongside Arshdeep Singh and found Patel to be a suitable option, especially in the death overs. With extensive IPL experience, Patel brings a wealth of expertise and is determined to make a strong statement after his release from RCB. His dual abilities as a proficient batter further solidify his appeal, making him an astute acquisition by Punjab Kings.
Addressing several aspects of their squad, Punjab Kings have made strategic moves to bolster their Indian middle-order and bowling line-up. With the addition of Patel, alongside the formidable presence of Shikhar Dhawan and the team, the outfit appears to be shaping up as a well-rounded and competitive unit for the IPL 2024 season.
A former holder of the coveted purple cap in the 2021 IPL season, Patel’s arrival to Punjab Kings ignites hope for a replication of his exceptional performances in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League.
