I got to know my positive side as well as my negatives: Anuj Rawat

The 22-year-old Delhi player was elated to share the dressing room with the likes of Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, du Plessis and Dinesh Karthik in IPL 2022. Rawat also said he learned about the areas that he needs to work on improving.

“These are the legends of the game. I am from the same academy as Virat Kohli. I know his journey. I have seen him when he was playing in Under-19 and where he is now. And talking about Faf du Plessis, Maxi (Glenn Maxwell) and Dinesh Karthik as well, I have learnt a lot of things from them,” he added.

Rawat was bought by Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2020 for INR 80 lakh but got just two matches to play across two seasons. The Delhi player was sold to RCB for INR 3.4 crore in the IPL 2022 mega auction.

RCB made through to IPL 2022 playoffs by dint of Mumbai Indians beating Delhi Capitals in their final group stage fixture. RCB’s title hopes were crushed by the Royals in the Qualifier 2 clash.
