IPL Auction 2017: Ben Stokes Tops at Rs.14.5 Cr, Afghan Players Make Debut

England cricketer Ben Stokes topped the list of foreing players who were bought on Monday auction. He has been paid Rs. 14.5 crore by Rising Pune Supergiants, who had sacrificed MS Dhoni earlier.

For the first time, Afghan players have caught the attention of IPL leagues and Afghanistan allrounder Mohammad Nabi, legspinner Rashid Khan had been chosen by Sunrisers Hyderabad, which paid Rs.4 crore for Rashid and Rs.30 lakh for Nabi.

Otherwise, England fast bowler Tymal Mills was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore for Rs. 12 crore and Chris Woakes was the third England player for whom Kolkata Knight Riders paid Rs. 4.2 crore. Next comes Eoin Morgan, the fourth England player to get Rs. 2 crore from Kings XI Punjab.

Delhi Daredevils sought and within 90 minutes of the auction bought Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews for Rs. 2 crore, New Zealand allrounder Corey Anderson for Rs. 1 crore, South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada for Rs.5 crore and Australia fast bowler Pat Cummins for Rs.4.5 crore.

Kolkata Knight Riders waited long today at Bangalore auction before bidding for New Zealand’s Trent Boult for Rs.5 crore. Out of 108 players put on sale, only 33 were bought today.

The situation remained equally disappointing for Indian players including Ishant Sharma, Irfan Pathan, Pragyan Ojha, Cheteshwar Pujara, Parvez Rasool and RP Singh, who remained unsold. Aniket Choudhary was bought by RCB for Rs.2 crore, K Gowtham by Mumbai for Rs.2 crore, T Natarajan by Kings XI for Rs.3 crore, Basil Thampi by Gujarat for Rs.85 lakh, Karn Sharma by Mumbai for Rs.3.2 crore, Eklavya Dwivedi by Sunrisers for Rs.75 lakh, Varun Aaron by Kings XI for Rs.2.8 crore, M Ashwin by Delhi for Rs.1 crore, and Pawan negi by RCB for Rs.1 crore.
