On Monday, owners of all Indian Premier League (IPL) teams bid for the players one last time at the IPL auction. Indian middle order batsmen Yuvraj Singh and Dinesh Karthik emerged as the biggest earners at the auction.
Yuvraj fetched a record Rs. 16 crores from the Delhi Daredevils while Dinesh Karthik will don the red, gold and blue jersey of Royal Challengers Bangalore this year. The Challengers signed him for Rs. 10.5 crores.
A total of 67 players (44 Indians, 23 overseas) were sold at the 2015 IPL Auction.
The IPL auction also saw some surprising buys. KC Cariappa in particular stunned everyone. Kolkata Knight Riders splashed Rs. 2.8 crores on the uncapped leg spinner from Karnataka.
While inexperienced KC Cariappa fetched a handsome amount, big names like Kumar Sangakkara, Ross Taylor, Hashim Amla and Mahela Jayawardane went unsold.
Here is a final list of all the squads that will be featuring in the 8th edition of the Indian Premier League.
