Rajasthan Royals digs RCB: The two royal franchises leaned over each other for their lavish buys in the 2021 IPL auction.
Indian Premier League franchises Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore have taken the 2021 IPL auction battle from the auction hall to the social media platform Twitter. The administrators of both franchises have been seen digging into each other over the amount of money they spent on two players.
It should be noted that the Royals and Royal Challengers spent a total of INR 30.50 crore on two players, namely Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell and South African all-rounder.
While Bangalore bought Maxwell for INR 14.25 crore, Rajasthan acquired Morris’s services for INR 16.25 crore. Considering the fact that both players have had below-normal IPL 2020 seasons, making the amount of money they’ve made is without a doubt astonishing.
Rajasthan Royals Digs RCB Buying Glenn Maxwell
It all started after the Royals took to their Twitter account to thank Maxwell for putting a big hole in RCB’s purse. “Thanks for reducing the @RCBTweets wallet,” Royals tweeted which also had an attached GIF.

Although there was no immediate response from Bangalore, they waited for the right time to respond. Not having to wait long, RCB found the right time when Rajasthan pulled out all the stops for Morris. Just like RR, RCB also posted a GIF and used emojis in a fun way to respond.

In addition to Morris, Rajasthan has also purchased the likes of India versatile Shivam Dube (INR 4.4 crore) and Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman (INR 1 crore) from now on. Despite a strong offer for fast Australian bowler Jhye Richardson, RCB couldn’t seal the deal against the Punjab Kings and has yet to buy another player.
