IPL AUCTION LIVE UPDATES – 1ST SET SOLD: R Ashwin / Trent Boult / Pat Cummins / Quinton De Kock / Shikhar Dhawan / Faf DuPlessis / Shreyas Iyer / Kagiso Rabada / Mohammad Shami / David Warner.

  • After 1st set of players MI, SRH & CSK yet to buy a player in AUCTION
  • David Warner: Goes to Delhi Capitals for 6.25 CR
  • Quinton De Kock: de Kock sold to Lucknow for 6.75 crores. That’s a bit of a steal of a price. Opening batter, left-hander, the wicketkeeper, proven performer. Surprisingly MI did not go big for him.
  • Faf Du Plessis: Will CSK get active? No, it is RCB who gets him for 7 CRORE. No AB de Villiers, but his schoolmate will be there.
  • Mohammed Shami: Gujarat Titans gets him for 6.25 CR / GREAT BUY.
  • Shreyas Iyer: KKR gets Iyer for 12.25 Cr / Highest BID of the DAY – Little last-minute fight from GT. KKR HAVE probably sealed their captain too with that bid.
  • Trent Boult: Rajasthan Royals gets Boult for 8 Cr
  • Kagiso Rabada – 9.25 Cr to Punjab Kings / Delhi slide out at 8 crores, but Punjab take up the baton. Punjab make their second big splash.
  • Pat Cummins – KKR for 7.25 CR / Stays with his old franchise at half the price. Still considerable. Just short of a dollar millionaire.
  • Ashwin SOLD to Rajasthan Royals for 5 CR
  • Shikhar Dhawan is sold to Punjab Kings for 8.25 crore.
