4 Faded stars of IPL Auction
#3 Aniket Choudhary
Aniket Choudhary, the left-arm pacer from Bikaner was highly regarded as India's long-term solution for a left-arm bowler. He was also India's net bowler during the tour of New Zealand in 2016.
Royal Challengers Bangalore bought him for a price of 2 crores from his base price of 10 lakhs in the 2017 IPL Auction after he impressed everyone with his bowling exploits in the domestic circuit. However, he failed to make a mark and gave away 144 runs from just 5 matches at an economy rate of 8.55.
RCB released him ahead of 2018 IPL Auction and bought him again for a much cheaper amount of 30 lakh INR. Due to the presence of consistent bowlers in RCB's lineup, he was considered as surplus to their needs and did not get a single game to prove his worth. He was let go by RCB in the trade window and found no bidders in the 2019 IPL Auction.
