All About IPL Auction 2016

                                                                                                                                                     

The 9th edition of the IPL with the successful completion of the 2016 players’ auction. While the 6 existing franchises used the opportunity to strengthen their squads further, the 2 new ones Pune (replacing Chennai Super Kings ) and Rajkot (replacing Rajasthan Royals) concentrated on forming a healthy nucleus of players for their first ever Indian Premier League. 

The Gujarat Lions and the Rising Pune Super giants started the auction with just 5 players in their respective teams, but they walked out of it with full squads. It was a surprise that the INR 10 crore-barrier was not breached, even though Shane Watson came quite close to doing it with an INR 9.5 crore deal with the Royal Challengers Bangalore. The most expensive man in IPL history, Yuvraj Singh, couldn’t quite meet his own standards despite signing with Sunrisers Hyderabad for a lucrative INR 7 crore. With this Shane Watson emerges as the costliest player at the IPL 2016 auctions while Pawan Negi became the costliest Indian player at the Indian Premier League auction fetching a massive Rs 8.5 crore.


Some of the players and their price are following….

Shane Watson sold to Royal Challengers Bangalore for Rs.9.5 crores
Pawan Negi sold to Delhi Daredevils for Rs. 8.5 crore
Yuvraj Singh sold to Sunrisers Hyderabad for Rs. 7 crores 
Chris Morris sold to Delhi Daredevils for Rs. 7 crores 
Kevin Pietersen sold to Rising Pune Supergiants for Rs. 3.5 crores
Dwayne Smith sold to Gujarat Lions for Rs.2.3 crores
Ishant Sharma sold to Rising Pune Supergiants for Rs. 3.8 crores
Ashish Nehra sold to Sunrisers Hyderabad for Rs.5.5 crores

Note: The Pune franchise was bought by Kolkata-based business tycoon Sanjiv Goenka’s company New Rising, while the Rajkot bid was won by Keshav Bansal’s company Intex Mobiles.
