sambaran banerje former cricket said, "I am not at all surprised to see Virat getting 17 crores. He is one of the most successful batsman in all format of the game as he knows how to dominate the bowlers and he is the face of RCB. Rohit also played very well this season and also gave two IPL title for Mumbai Indians. SO it was expected. I thought Rahane will be retained by RR as he played very well for Rising Pune Supergiants and he is also a very good player in the shortest format of the game. KKR management knows business very well that is why they didn't retain their two times title winner Gambhir. They did this with Sourav Ganguly also.
