Goodbye

09:34 PM

That is all from this year's auction! Who do you think has the best squad this time around?

 

Chennai - as usual? Or Mumbai for the balance? Do not forget Hyderabad as well.

 

Plenty of new players this time around. Looking forward to your company for the 2019 season in a few months' time!!!

Some shockers who missed out

09:33 PM

Many wouldn't have been able to foresee it. Some big names missing out this time.

 

Players like Brendon McCullum, Luke Ronchi, Alex Hales, Hashim Amla, Shaun Marsh, Corey Anderson, Angelo Mathews, Chris Jordan, Dale Steyn, Adam Zampa, Sikandar Raza and many more.

 

Some may have had availability issues, but the lack of willingness for the others will forever remain a mystery.

The most expensive buys...

09:20 PM

Would like to know whom does he meet or where does this bloke pray. 

 

JAYDEV UNADKAT - Once again the most expensive buy, at 8.4 crore, by Rajasthan. Only this time, he was not the only one at that price.

 

TNPL star Varun Chakaravarthy got picked by Punjab at 8.4 crore as well. 

 

Punjab had the next costliest buy as well  - Sam Curran at 7.2 crore.

 

The other notable buy was Colin Ingram - for 6.4 crore by Delhi.

 

 

Who bought the most?

09:16 PM

Punjab, as expected, got the most number of players - 13. 

 

Delhi got the next best number - 10. 

 

Rajasthan and Bengaluru got 9 each 

 

Kolkata snapped 8

 

Mumbai got 3

 

Chennai was the one which spent the least amount of time in purchasing a player - buying only 2.

2019 auction ends

09:13 PM

Happy? Satisfied? Cannot say. With the teams not too keen on buying players, majority of them went unsold. So much drama but nothing to unfold. 

 

Perhaps it was because the World Cup is looming and franchises did not want to take risk with foreign players, lest they leave in the middle of the tournament. Or maybe, they had a settled squad and did not want more than 2 or 3 players.

Riyan Parag is bought at 20 lakh by Rajasthan

09:10 PM

The final name at the auction is bought by Rajasthan again and everyone is smiling! 

 

Looks like only they submitted the names and got the players!!!

Riyan Parag

09:09 PM

Base price of 20 Lakhs.
