The IPL 2017 is upon us and the Indian cricket summer will only get hotter from here. The auctions concluded today at Bengaluru and as expected, there was plenty of action and there were several bidding wars that enthralled us. And as the dust settled, the teams walked away with their preferred combinations.
IPL 2017 Player Auction was conducted on February 20 in Bengaluru inside the plush hotel rooms for the tenth edition of the league. With the league starting on April 5, teams had the auction as a launchpad to decide their strategy for the season in terms of players required and areas they need to improve upon.
While some recognisable names went unsold, there were several others who are sure to be smiling all the way to the bank. Ben Stokes was one of them, as he ended up as the most expensive overseas buy in the history of the IPL.
