In the list of most expensive players in IPL 2019, Jaydev Unadkat and Varun Chakravarthy are the most expensive players of this year’s IPL each worth 8.4 crores.
Jaydev Unadkat was released by the Rajasthan Royals earlier but was again picked up by them. They had earlier bought him for a whopping 11.4 crores hoping that he would be able to replicate his 2017 season form, where he was the second highest wicket-taker of the season. He picked up 24 wickets in 12 matches with an economy rate of 7.02 in 2017. But he rather turned out to be a disappointment as he was nowhere close to his form and could only take 11 wickets in 15 matches at an abysmal economy rate of 9.65.
Varun Chakravarthy was picked up by Kings XI Punjab at the same price, he had performed very well in the TNPL and helped his team Siechem Madurai Panthers to clinch their maiden title. He bowled 240 balls, of which 125 were dots and picked up 9 wickets.
