That’s it from us on our coverage of the IPL 2017 player auction. We sincerely hope we were able to keep you updated on the purchases as and when they happened.

This is Amit signing off for now  on behalf of our team as well as the experts who have contributed to this blog. We’ll be back again in full swing three days later at the start of the first Test between India and Australia in Pune.


  1. Ben Stokes

Team:  Rising Pune SuperGiants

Price: 14.5 Crore ( £1.7m ) 

An intense day of bidding came to end with Ben Stokes making history by becoming the most expensive foreign player in the Indian Premier League ever. The all-rounder was bought by Rising Pune Supergiants for a whopping Rs. 14 crore.

2. Tymal Mills

Team:  Royal Challengers Bangalore

Price:  Rs 12 crore ( £1.4 M )

Tymal Mills getting Rs 12 crore was more of a surprise, but the reasons for his selection were similar. He is a bowler who can send the ball down at over 90mph, can completely deceive batsmen with his clever slower balls, and he is a recognisable name thanks to the significant success he had in India in the T20 international series earlier this month.

3. Trent Boult

Team:  Kolkata Knight Riders

Price:  Rs 5 crore ( $1.04m )

The 27-year-old New Zealand fast bowler was the subject of a bidding duel on Monday between the Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians before the former got their man for five crore rupees (NZ$1.04m).That figure does not necessarily indicate what his salary will be. Players are paid pro-rata based on how many games they are available for. His price was the fourth-highest of the auction.

4. Kagiso Rabada

Team: Delhi Daredevils

Price:   Rs 5 crore  ( $1.04m )

Kagiso Rabada is the personification of a tornado, would be an understatement. Rabada has had a phenomenal journey through tests, through ODIs, Twenty20 International and there is no format he has not performed exceptionally well in. He has left people awestruck with his bowling and there no doubt that South Africa has bright future with him in the team.

5. Pat Cummins

Team: Delhi Daredevils

Price:  Rs 4.5 crore ( $A875,000 )

Pat Cummins says Cricket Australia will have to show good reason to justify any call for the Australian fast bowler to pull out of the Indian Premier League and relinquish his major pay day.Cummins once the Twenty20 series against Sri Lanka finishes in Adelaide on Wednesday to discuss his plans for the glamour Indian Twenty20 competition where he was snapped up in Monday’s auction by the Delhi Daredevils for $874,540.

6. Chris Woakes

Team: Kolkata Knight Riders

Price: Rs 4.2 crore

This event is for betting on which IPL team will buy England All-rounder Chris Woakes. Over the last year or so, Woakes has proved to be an absolute bowling machine, being able to hit the same line and lengths for long periods of time. He is also very handy with the bat and a base price of Rs.2 crore is extremely justified. Woakes has never been a part of the IPL in the past but I’m expecting him to make his debut and get paid big bucks at the IPL 2017 Auction.

7. Rashid Khan Arman

Team: Sunrisers Hyderabad

Price:  Rs 4 crore.

Rashid Khan made a huge mark for cricket in Afghanistan as he was purchased for IPL 10 by SunRisers Hyderabad for Rs 4 crore. The leg-spinner, while quite in the reckoning in the run-up to the auction, would still be delighted by the kind of money he generated, something that would be a huge boost to cricket in his country. The 18-year-old would be playing his first Indian Premier League.

8. Nathan Coulter-Nile

Team: Kolkata Knight Riders

Price: Rs 3.5 crore

Australian fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile was sold for a whopping price of INR 3.5 crores to former record two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), against the base price of INR 1 crore, during the IPL Auction 2017 in Bengaluru on Monday. The Australian pacer has so far played 17 T20Is, and has managed to claim 21 wickets, while from 76 T20 matches, he has managed to claim 88 wickets.
