Donovan Ferreira was acquired by Rajasthan Royals for Rs. 50 lakhs at the IPL 2023 auction. There was a small bidding war between RR and the Kolkata Knight Riders before the hammer came down in RR's favour. An exciting talent from South Africa, Ferreira possesses a range of strokes in his armoury and can hit them long as well. He's had a good start to his T20 career, having scored 703 runs from 31 innings at an average of 31.95. An eye-catching feature with the willow is his ability to strike at 148.94 per 100 balls. He can bowl a bit and keep wickets as well. He would look to impress in his first season and make the world take notice.
