So the franchise decided to release him. But again he was bought by Rajasthan Royals only after a bidding war in 8.4 crores and once again became the most expensive player of IPL 2019.

The reason behind this is his recent performance. Playing in Vijay Hazare trophy he took 16 wickets in 8 matches and also he is having a lot of experience on Indian pitches.
