A left-arm orthodox spinner from Delhi, Pawan Negi rose to fame when he was racked up for a whopping sum of Rs 8.5 Crores by the Delhi Daredevils ahead of the 2015 IPL auctions.
The deal had come on the back of impressive performances in the 2015-16 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. Apart from the landmark IPL deal, Negi earned his national call-up for the 2016 World T20.
However, Negi failed to live up to the expectations and with the franchise letting him go for the auctions in 2017. He was then bought by the Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore where he turned out to be a potent buy; taking 16 wickets in 12 matches.
