IPL 2024: Avesh Khan and Devdutt Padikkal involved in double trade between LSG and RR


The Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and the Rajasthan Royals (RR) have been involved in a double trade which sees Avesh Khan head to the Jaipur-based franchise while Lucknow gets Devdutt Padikkal.

Both Avesh and Padikkal have been traded for their existing fees, which means that RR got for 10 crores while the left-arm batter went to LSG for 7.75 crores.

The news was confirmed by the IPL’s official website in a statement released on November 22.

“Avesh Khan has been traded to Rajasthan Royals (RR) from Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) while Devdutt Padikkal is traded to LSG from RR during the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) trading window ahead of the TATA IPL 2024.”

Avesh has so far played 47 IPL matches and has 55 IPL wickets to his name. The right-arm pacer, who represented LSG in 22 matches & picked 26 wickets after joining the franchise in 2022, was traded to RR for his existing fee.

“Devdutt Padikkal, meanwhile, will head to LSG from RR for his existing fee. The left-handed batter has 57 IPL matches under his belt and has scored 1521 runs with the help of a hundred and 9 half-centuries. He joined RR in 2022 & represented the side in as many as 28 matches, scoring 637 runs,” read the statement.

Avesh didn’t have the best of times in the IPL 2023 campaign as he picked up eight wickets from nine matches at an average of 35.38. Padikkal also had a relatively quiet campaign in the competition as he scored 261 runs in 11 matches.

Avesh has been included in the Indian squad for the upcoming T20I series against Australia, which begins on November 23.
