IPL auction: rich haul for Sanju

IPL auction: rich haul for Sanju

The focus is also on youth as seen by the under-19 Indian star Kamlesh Nagarkoti getting Rs 3.2 crore. He was sold for INR 5.2 crore (USD 812,500 approx) after Kings XI Punjab offered the first bid of the morning with INR 2 crore.

He eventually went to Hyderabad at 11 times his base price as Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) decided not to exercise the Right to Match (RTM) option.

"I didn't even think that I was sold for my base price". However, the team from Punjab bowed out at Rs 94 million.

Stokes, 26, who was named the IPL's most valuable player previous year, was again listed as one of 16 marquee players.

Samson was another surprise with Rajasthan deciding to fork out Rs 8 crore for his services.

Set six of the auction started with the bowlers and the first one on the list was Mustafizur Rahman with a base price of Rs 1 crore.

CSK went after Dwayne Bravo and Faf du Plessis, both from CSK.

Dinesh Karthick also got a good price.

Colin de Grandhomme 2.2 crore ($470,000) to Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Strangely, the Kolkata Knight Riders didn't target Trent Boult, but forked out Rs 2.00 crore for Mitchell Johnson, who retired from worldwide cricket some years ago.

Royal Challengers Bangalore bought 21 players for Rs48.85 crore.

Jaydev Unadkat racked a whopping amount of INR 11.5 Crores as Rajasthan Royals picked him after his sensational performance in the last season. That meant Mumbai paid more for Krunal than they did for the third of their retained players, Jasprit Bumrah, whom they had kept on their roster for INR 7 crore before the auction.

The auction as stated earlier would be featuring 578 players in total with 361 of them being Indians.

"If you compare the 2014 auction, we had presented around 320 players, which went in acceleration process".

Punjab beat off bidding from Chennai and Rajasthan before sealing the deal.

Rahul, meanwhile, is a costly pickup for Kings XI.

Punjab also bought Manzoor Dar for Rs 20 lakhs.

CSK won the bid for Ambati Rayudu with Rs 2.20 crore. Kagiso Rabada, the South African tearaway, was retained by DD using RTM against CSK's bid of Rs 4.20 crore. The Royals, known for their wise spending, began day two with a bang splurging some more to snatch Karnataka off-spinner Krishnappa Gowtham for Rs 6.2 crore.

Barring CSK, who still have Rs 6.5 crore to work with, all teams have nearly utilised their purse.

Glenn Maxwell is another player who can be devastating in this form of the game, and he's on his way to Delhi Daredevils along with Gambhir. Delhi Daredevils went back and deep for Shahbaz Nadeem, while also adding a "millenial" - the 2000-born left-arm spinner Abhishek Sharma. He can be presented again for the auction at the day's end.

Mumbai Indians: Rahul Chahar (Rs.1.90 crore), Evin Lewis (Rs.3.80 crore), Saurabh Tiway (Rs.80 lakh), Ben Cutting (Rs.2.20 crore), Pradeep Sangwan (Rs.1.50 crore), JP Duminy (Rs.1 crore), Jason Beherendorff (Rs.1.50 crore), Tajinder Dhillon (Rs.55 lakh). England's Moeen Ali went to RCB for Rs 1.7 crore. About Rs 628-Rs 629 crore were spent in IPL auction. That is the ultimate goal for me but again, I don't want to be a player who plays for just one or two games.
