Mumbai Indians pick Mustafizur up for 2.2 Crore

The likes of Yuvraj Singh will probably find a few takers once again

The likes of Yuvraj Singh will probably find a few takers once again

However his addition to the team did not make much of a difference as DD ended up second last winning only five matches. SRH were given the chance to use the RTM card for him but they chose not to use it. Yuvraj heads back to KXIP, where it all started for him in IPL.The third round of the auction got underway with an intense bidding war between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royal for India's second 300-man Karun Nair. Total 25 players are sold in the IPL Auction in which 16 were overseas player.

This weekend - 27-28 January.

The league, which goes into the high-profile auctions in about three days' time, has been the stepping stone for many a cricketer to realise their dreams of playing the highest form of the game and representing their country, with Indian cricketers unsurprisingly being a major beneficiary in this regard.

He said there is nothing a player can do about the auction as a player cannot rate oneself. England cricketer Jason Roy was bought by Delhi Daredevils for Rs 1.50 crore. After being deducted a certain fee for the players retained, these are the budgets available to the franchises for the final auctions.

Other than becoming judicious in buying, the teams are also paying attention to squad size. We are told England players have to leave in early May.

L. Rahul were the most costly purchases, with the former joining Hyderabad Sunrisers and the latter acquired by Kings XI Punjab.

Kolkata Knight Riders: 59 crore rupees (£6.5m). While, Dinesh Karthik was bought by KKR for Rs 7.4 Crores.

His India team-mate Ravichandran Ashwin went to Kings XI Punjab, Mumbai Indians signed Kieron Pollard and Mitchell Starc joined Kolkata. Ajinkya Rahane bought by Rajasthan Royal for Rs 4 Crores. In 2016, Watson was brought by Royal Challengers Bangalore for Rs 9.5 crores after setting his base price at Rs 2 core. Two teams - Delhi Daredevils and Sunrisers Hyderabad, especially, showed great interest.

Who are the IPL marquee players?

By the time Woakes had stepped on to the team bus, he was up for auction and monitoring proceedings.

The Black Caps have the No.1 batsman (Colin Munro) and bowler (Ish Sodhi) in the T20 rankings, two more batsmen in the top 11 (Kane Williamson and Martin Guptill) and two more bowlers in the top 13 (Mitchell Santner and Trent Boult).

The slabs for internationals (Indian and foreign) are ₹2 crore, ₹1.5 crore, ₹1 crore, ₹75 lakh and ₹50 lakh, while uncapped players are base-priced at ₹40 lakh, ₹30 lakh and ₹20 lakh.

Over 30 players went unsold on Saturday morning - but they still stand a chance of securing an IPL contract when bidding resumes on Sunday.
