IPL Auction


The two day IPL players auction where the bidding will be done in Indian rupees with a total of Rs. 274.50 crore available with franchises across eight teams where 514 capped and uncapped players will go under hammer that gets underway on Wednesday in Bangalore broadcast live on both Sony Six and Sony Six HD.

Yuvraj Singh and Dinesh Karthik was the most expensive buy with his base price of Rs 2 crore on the first day of the cash rich IPL 2014 auction among the 16 marquee players. New Zealand allrounder Corey Anderson was bought by Mumbai Indians for Rs. 4.5 crore, while pacer Mitchell Starc was picked for Rs 5 crore while Brett Lee remained unsold and Kevin Pietersen once again looks set to be a major talking point bought by Delhi Daredevils for £880,000. The Ness Wadia, Preity Zinta co-owned Kings XI Punjab will go into the second day of the IPL 7 2014 auction with the maximum purse.

The 'Right to Match' system has been introduced to this year's IPL auction as a means for teams to buy back up to five of their core players.
