2 players RCB tried signing outside auction for IPL 2010 but could not
In 2009, BCCI gave amnesty to the players who were a part of the Indian Cricket League. Hence, these cricketers became eligible to play in the IPL. Back then, franchises had to sign uncapped players outside of the auction. Hence, there was intense competition between teams to sign the best-uncapped talent. On that note, in this article, we take a look at 2 players RCB tried signing outside auction for IPL 2010 but could not.
1) Ambati Rayudu
Right from his teenage years, Rayudu was known for his talent. Hence, with him available, many teams were looking to add him to their squads. Royal Challengers Bangalore was also one of the teams that tried to sign him. Eventually, Mumbai Indians signed the cricketer. Before the mega-auction in 2011, too, RCB tried to hire Rayudu but MI signed him again. From then, Rayudu went on to become a solid player in the competition. He won trophies with Mumbai and then moved to CSK, where he has won two trophies already.
2) Stuart Binny
Stuart Binny is also one of the players RCB tried signing outside auction for IPL 2010 but could not. Like Rayudu, Mumbai Indians signed the all-rounder for 2010. However next year, RCB came back again to sign the player, who fell in the catchment area of the franchise. However, Binny wanted to ensure consistent game time and hence signed up for Rajasthan Royals. Binny had a good time with RR and was also once retained by the franchise. Nevertheless, Binny did play for RCB and was part of the 2016 squad that had reached the finals.
