  • IPL Auction Yuvraj Singh back with home team Punjab Delhi Daredevils bag Gautam Gambhir after KKR snub

National team mate and wicketkeeper Jos Buttler joined Stokes at Rajasthan but England captain Joe Root found no taker on the opening day of the two-day auction. Australia's Glenn Maxwell heads a marquee player list that also features Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh, Australia bowler Mitchell Starc and West Indies batsman Chris Gayle.

Battle-hardened Harbhajan Singh will having quite a different experience when the IPL auction begins on Saturday. The 2018 edition will be the 11th year and the season starts on 4 April.

Which teams play in the IPL? . Again Kings XI were involved, and again a RTM was used by Mumbai, snatching Pollard off Delhi Daredevils for INR 5.4 crore (USD 843,750 approx).

How does the IPL season work? Each team will be assigned a table from where they will bid for the respective players with a paddle to indicate whether they are interested.

The bidding will continue until all but one team backs out and the team with the highest bid will get the player.

Jhanvi, 16, became the youngest person ever to attend an IPL auction table. A total of 26 players from England, 58 from Australia, 30 from New Zealand and 57 from South Africa have registered for the auction, taking the tally of overseas players to 282. Last year's auction also catapulted a number of uncapped Indian players to fame (and considerable wealth); more such reward is expected for domestic talent. The English cricketers were at their prime but it was unfortunate that both the players were not available for a major part of the tournament. "We have spoken about the auction once, and we said let's keep that out of our minds", he stated. 78 players were bought by the eight franchises, while 31 remained unsold. It was shocking the Chennai Super Kings did not retain the local boy Ravichandran Ashwin.

Kolkata Knight Riders: 59 crore rupees (£6.5m).

The hard hitting Australian was roped in by Mumbai Indians for a sum of $1 million.

Royal Challengers Bangalore, who bought 11 players, pushed themselves only for England all-rounder Chris Woakes, engaging in a tussle with the returning Chennai Super Kings before buying him at 7.4 crore.

Who is still waiting to go under the hammer?

"My parents are ecstatic - they're happy that I got another chance to play and improve my game", he added.

There will be three tiers of players up for auction each with a base price. "Last year, it was Rs 10 Lakh, this year base price was 20 (laughs)". The second tier base price is £166,000 and the third tier base price is £110,000.
