IPL 2019 Auction: 8 teams spend Rs 106.80 crore on 60 players

Denly's second coming included lower order runs and four wickets with his handy legspin, which found him named Player of the Year by the Professional Cricketers' Association as well as the domestic T20 and One-Day competitions.

Mumbai Indians paid Rs one crore for Yuvraj Singh in a last-minute buy and franchise owner Akash Ambai called it their biggest steal in the tournament's 11-year-old history. The 23-year-old, who came with a base price of Rs 75 lakh, went for Rs 4.20 crore to KXIP.

Tamil Nadu mystery spinner Varun Chakravarathy, who has as many as seven variations up his sleeve, is over the moon after being bought by Kings XI Punjab for a whopping Rs 8.4 crore, more than 40 times his base price, at the IPL auction on Tuesday.

Akshar Patel was sold to Delhi Capitals for 50 million Indian rupees while Jaydev Unadkat was sold to Rajasthan Royals for 84 million Indian rupees, reported ANI.

Capped Indian players were in demand and so were the West Indians before a 15-minute tea break at the auction.

Among the players expected to garner a lot of interest was Shimron Hetmyer, who was a bright spot for West Indies on their tour of India earlier this year.

The 20-year-old attracted the third-highest bid of 72m rupees, having entered with a base price of 20m.

India legend and three-time IPL victor MS Dhoni will again line up for defending champions Chennai Super Kings, while West Indies' Chris Gayle remains part of the Kings XI squad.

Spinner Axar Patel (Rs five crore), pacer Mohit Sharma (Rs five crore) and Mohammad Shami (Rs 4.8 crore) were the other names to fetch big bids. I hope to learn a lot from people like Ravichandran Ashwin, who is the captain of Kings XI Punjab and the others.

Mohit, who was part of the Indian team in the 2015 World Cup, returned to Chennai Super Kings when they bought the right-arm pacer for Rs 5 crore. Tamil Nadu's Varun Chakravarthy Vinod went from a base price of Rs 20 lakh to a whopping Rs 8.4 crore, snapped up by Kings XI Punjab in the auction in Jaipur on Tuesday.

Mumbai Indians bought back Sri Lankan veteran Lasith Malinga for Rs 2 crore while veteran Ishant Sharma was bought for Rs 1.10 crore by Delhi Capitals.

The high-profile unsold players were Cheteshwar Pujara, Brendon McCullum and Chris Woakes.
