Pawan Negi stole the lime light in the 2016 Indian Premier League – IPL – auction, where he was bought by Delhi Daredevil for whooping Rs. 8.5 Crores. This little known, but rising star of Indian cricket was the costliest player of this auction ahead of Yuvraj Singh.
Pawan Negi is a promising all round criketer. He can bowl left arm spin and can bat quite violently in death overs. That’s why he is considered a player to watch out for shortest version of the cricket – T 20.
Unfortunately, people still remember Pawan Negi for his encounter with Hardik Pandya. In a CSK Vs MI IPL match, Dhoni gave bowl to Pawan Negi thinking that Hardik will make a fault against him. However, Hardik scored more than 20 runs in the second last over of the innings turning the match in favor of the Mumbai Indians.
