After getting dropped from India’s 30 men probables for the 2015 World Cup, more setbacks has been in store for Indian middle-order batsman Yuvraj Singh, who has now not been retained by his Indian Premier League (IPL) side Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team for the upcoming 2015 season. Yuvraj, who was bought in by whopping 14 crores rupees ahead of the IPL 2014 season, was let out by his side owned by Vijay Mallya’s UB Group.
Now with this, RCB will have Rs 14 crores ($2.33 million) in their auction purse ahead of the 2015 auctions. Yuvraj Singh, who was the highest paid player of RCB failed miserably during his time for the franchise. Yuvraj played 14 matches for the RCB in the 2014 season and scored 376 runs that included just three half-centuries. Virat Kohli led RCB finished 7th in the table.
For the IPL 2015, Royal Challengers Bangalore had acquired Manvinder Bisla from Kolkata Knight Riders as part of the first trading window which was opened on October 6 and was closed on December 12. ”The latest two trades both involve Royal Challengers Bangalore. They have acquired Manvinder Bisla from Kolkata Knight Riders and have traded Parthiv Patel to Mumbai Indians,” the BCCI said in a statement.
Yuvraj is not having a great domestic season to boast his case to be picked for RCB. Earlier Virat Kohli asked the franchise not to let the India’s dashing southpaw go. It is said that RCB will get him back for a lower price in the upcoming auctions.
