Prashant Solanki - sold to CSK for Rs 1.2 crore

CSK were in this quickly. Royals wanted him too. But CSK were pretty clear that there were prepared to spend a little for the leg-spinner who made his debut for Mumbai last year.



Mayank Yadav, Tejas Baroka, Yuvraj Chudasama get no bids.

Chama Milind - sold to RCB for Rs 25 lakhs

Prerak Mankad - sold to Punjab for Rs 20 lakhs

Slots being filled up quickly.

Pravin Dubey - sold to Delhi for Rs 50 lakhs

Quick buy.

Tim David - sold to MI for Rs 8.25 crore

Lucknow and KKR were interested in getting him on board. RR came into the mix late. The big-hitting Singapore-born middle order batter has had one of the steepest rise to prominence in the T20 circuit over the last one year. David was the crisis man for both the Lahore Qalandars and the St. Lucia Kings in the PSL and CPL respectively. He was expected to go for big bucks and this doesn’t surprise anyone. MI came in last and had the high bid. From the base price of Rs 40 lakhs, all the way to Rs 8.25 crore! Phew!!!


Apoorv Wankhade, Atharva Ankolekar find no takers.

Subhranshu Senapati - sold to CSK for Rs 20 lakhs

Quick business. CSK continue to add to their squad.


Sandeep Warrier, Tanmay Agarwal, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Sameer Rizvi find no takers.

Andrew Tye - unsold

Gujarat should have gone for him. Base price of Rs 1 crore. Too high?

Chennai add some real pace to their mix. A smart play and if the skipper can get the best out of him, a very nice pick.

Tymal Mills - sold to MI for Rs 1.5 crore

The England T20 specialist finds a taker in MI. MI and SRH were in it initially and then Punjab came in too. He bowls the tough overs.

Obed Mccoy - sold to RR for Rs 75 lakhs

Quick business and good business too.


Australian bowler Nathan Ellis is unsold as is Afghanistan’s Fazalhaq Farooqi. Siddharth Kaul also gets no bids.

Jason Behrendoff - sold to RCB for Rs 75 lakhs

Only bid and a quality player added to their squad.


Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ben McDermott, Glenn Phillips find no takers.

Romario Shepherd - sold to SRH for Rs 7.75 crore

Lucknow in it first and then MI came in too. Lucknow only have Rs 3.3 crore left in their purse and have only acquired 15 players at this point. CSK came in late and stole a march over the others. Then, SRH jumped in. Then, Royals suddenly became interested. An intense fight for a player with insane hitting ability and quality death bowler too.

Mitchell Santner - sold to CSK for Rs 1.9 crore

The NZ spinner didn’t get a lot of playing time for CSK in the last season but may be the plans are changing. They have him back.

Daniel Sams - sold to MI for Rs 2.6 crore

Nice overseas allround option for Mumbai. The 29-year-old might be the consistent player they seek.

Sherfane Rutherford - sold to RCB for Rs 1 crore

RCB trying to make up the squad numbers but could be an interesting pick too. Will he get game time?

Dwaine Pretorius - sold to CSK for Rs 50 lakhs

The SA allrounder makes it to the CSK squad. A nice, smart buy.


George Garton attracts no bids in the accelerated auction.

Rishi Dhawan - sold to Punjab for Rs 55 lakhs

SRH and Punjab in the fray for the allrounder. Bowls medium pace and can strike big blows.


Charith Asalanka is next and he is unsold.

Jofra Archer - sold to MI for Rs 8 crore

He won’t play in the coming season but MI didn’t care. They wanted him and they had the purse. He is quick and takes wickets and tweets well too. Big buy but how it will impact the team... we will have to wait and see.


No bids for Rassie van der Dussen.

Rovman Powell - sold to Delhi for Rs 2.8 crore

Lucknow and Delhi in the mix quickly. And CSK follows. Base price of Rs 75 lakhs. Delhi win out in the end. They strengthen a squad that already looks pretty good.

Karun Nair - unsold

Base price of Rs 50 lakhs but no one wants him.

Evin Lewis - unsold

Was the base price of Rs 2 crore too high?

Alex Hales - unsold

Brought back but no interest yet.

Devon Conway - sold to CSK for Rs 1 crore

The kind of player CSK like. Solid under pressure and a good, good buy.

Finn Allen - sold to RCB for Rs 80 lakhs

To start things off. RCB and Royals showing interest. The Kiwi player is an interesting pick and Hesson will know something about him.


And we are back!


Akash Singh. No opening bid for him.

Five-minute break coming up and we will be going into the accelerated auction. A total of 106 players. Teams have expressed interest in bringing the players back into the auction.


Mutjaba Yousuf, Kuldeep Sen find no takers.

Simarjeet Singh - sold to CSK for Rs 20 lakhs

They almost didn’t spot the opening bid. CSK add to their squad.

Yash Dayal - sold to Gujarat for Rs 3.2 crore

KKR and RCB in a quick bidding battle for the left-arm pacer from UP initially. Gujarat came in too later and won the race. He has some pace and gets good bounce too. An interesting buy.



Vasu Vats, Yash Thakur, Arzan Nagwaswalla find no takers.

Uncapped fast bowlers coming up in the new set

Rajvardhan Hangargekar - sold to CSK for Rs 1.5 crore

MI putting their paddle up for many of the youngsters. The fast bowler has the right build and is certainly someone who is worth investing in. Was impressive in the U19 World Cup. CSK interested too and finally getting him.

Raj Angad Bawa - sold to Punjab for Rs 2 crore

SRH were interested and so were Punjab. Fine pace bowling allround talent who had a big impact of the U19 World Cup final. MI put up the paddle too. Bit of bidding war for the youngster. Punjab came in later again and got him.

Sanjay Yadav - sold to MI for Rs 50 lakhs

MI need to build up their squad as well.

Vicky Ostwal - unsold

He had a good U-19 World Cup but left-arm spinners are aplenty.

Darshan Nalkande - sold to Gujarat for Rs 20 lakhs

Once again, one bid and that was it.

Anukul Roy - sold to KKR for Rs 20 lakhs

One bid and that was it.

Mahipal Lomror - sold to RCB for Rs 95 lakhs

RCB and Royals in the battle for the young talent. He was with the Royals and showed glimpses of his big-hitting form. Both RCB and RR have a squad to make!


N Tilak Verma - sold to MI for Rs 1.7 crore

Base price of Rs 20 lakhs and CSK came in late at Rs 60 lakhs. It was between SRH and Royals early on. MI came in too and given the size of their remaining purse, there was no stopping them. Fine 19-year-old batting talent.


Yash Dhull - sold to Delhi for Rs 50 lakhs

Between Punjab and Delhi for India’s U-19 captain. A steady, smart batter and one for the future. He hails from Delhi and he will be playing for them too.

Lalit Yadav - sold to Delhi for Rs 65 lakhs, Ripal Patel - sold to Delhi for Rs 20 lakhs

And we are back after the break.

Press conference update:

(SRH) Simon Katich pleased with how Nos 3 to 6 in the batting order is shaping up for SRH with Williamson, Tripathi, Pooran, Samad. Talks up Aiden Markram’s recruitment, Indian pacers & how big Washi can be because he bowls in different phases.

(PBKS): Anil Kumble says the dynamics (that word again!) has been unlike anything he’s seen before in the auctions. The talent identification, budget allocation with 10 new teams has been a huge challenge he says. Doesn’t give out much about captaincy.

Gautam Gambhir on Star Sports: We wanted to free KL Rahul up from keeping duties, fortunate to get QdK at that price If I was in the studio I would have probably said that Rs 10 crore is too much for Avesh Khan too. But we went really hard for Prasidh and Avesh, we can build the pace attack around him:

A 45-minute lunch break we are told. Here’s a look at the purse remaining.

(Maximum overseas players: 8 Maximum squad size: 25)

Chennai Super Kings ₹15,75,00,000 3 12

Ricky Bhui is UNSOLD and that will be our cue for a short break.

Heartbreak for Lucknow faithful

Lucknow wanted local lad Rinku Singh but he returns to KKR for Rs 55 Lakh.

Manan Vohra then goes to Lucknow.

Uncapped batters

Virat Singh: UNSOLD

Himmat Singh: UNSOLD

Sachin Baby: UNSOLD

Harnoor Singh, U19 World Cup squad member: UNSOLD (Didn’t have the best of World Cups)

Himanshu Rana: UNSOLd

The first bids in this set come for Rinku Singh

Piyush Chawla makes it a hat-trick of leg-spinners who go unsold for now. Final set coming up before a lunch break it seems. Uncapped batters.

Is that a steal? Sri Lanka spinner Maheesh Theekshana, who impressed at the T20 World Cup, goes to CSK for just Rs 70 lakh. Karn Sharma, Ish Sodhi remain UNSOLD for now.

Shahbaz Nadeem goes to LSG for his base for Rs 50 lakh.

South Africa’s Tabraiz Shamsi, Afghanistan spinner Qais Ahmad: UNSOLD


Mayank Markande is the first player in this set... goes to Mumbai Indians for Rs 65 lakh after a long, animated discussion between the MI owners.

The fascinating journey of Jaydev Unadkat.

Jaydev Unadkat to MI for Rs 1.3 crore

He was JUST about to go unsold but MI have picked him for Rs 1.3 crore after some interest from CSK too. R Ashwin’s prediction fails. (He has since deleted the tweet)

Navdeep Saini goes to RR for Rs 2.6 crore

Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals in a tussle now for Navdeep Saini but MI step back and allow RR to have in. MI do have to start signing players at some point!

Sandeep Sharma goes to Punjab Kings for his base price of Rs 50 lakh.

Next up is Navdeep Saini.

Chetan Sakariya to Delhi Capitals for Rs 4.2 crore

Delhi Capitals join in later after Royals and RCB were at it in the earlier stages... Royals thought they had their man back but DC came in. Goes beyond Rs 2 crore with DC and RR battling it out... past Rs 3 crore. The paddles are now going up rather slowly. DC already have The Fizz and Khaleel... and they now have Chetan too! Left is right for them it would seem. They are chuffed with it too.

CSK might be in back for him later, you’d think.

Chetan Sakariya time, this could get interesting too. RCB and RR are involved.

Dushmanta Chameera goes to Lucknow Super Giants for Rs 2 crore

LSG and RCB battle it out for the Sri Lankan pacer. LSG get him, RCB stop short.

Khaleel Ahmed goes to Delhi Capitals for Rs 5.25 crore

Mumbai Indians, who missed out on Marco Jansen earlier, seemed determined to get him but once again not determined enough to go beyond a point. DC get another left-arm pacer to go with Mustafizur in Khaleel.

1.25 pm: WE are back after a break. Ishant Sharma goes UNSOLD as we go to a pacers set.

Short break before returning to the auction.

K Gowtham - sold to Lucknow for Rs 90 lakhs

Valuable utility buy and an experienced option in case they need one. And at a good price too.

Shivam Dube - sold to CSK for Rs 4 crore

Hot property at one point but the performances haven’t quite matched up. Big hitter on his day and can bowl a few handy overs too. Bidding started off slowly but Punjab wanted him. CSK came in just as bidding seemed to be coming to an end and they got him in the end. A good chance for Duba to learn from the best in the business.

Marco Jansen - sold to SRH for Rs 4.2 crore

MI and Rajasthan in this. The tall South African pacer is a top prospect and will only get better in the next couple of years. SRH came in later and sold a march over the others.

Odean Smith - sold to Punjab for Rs 6 crore

A good showing in the recent India vs West Indies series saw Punjab and Lucknow jump into the fray. SRH came into the equation a little later. Solid bowler and he has really worked on his batting. Likes hitting the big sixes. Royals coming into the picture after the bidding has crossed Rs 4 crore. Punjab stayed with him throughout and finally secured his services.

Chris Jordan - unsold

Unsold for now. But some team might want to pick him up later.

Vijay Shankar - sold to Gujarat for Rs 1.4 crore

Between Gujarat and CSK. The allrounder has had fitness issues but is a strong utility player. Also a former India no 4. Gujarat win and they have a solid Indian pace bowling allround option.

Jayant Yadav - sold to Gujarat for Rs 1.7 crore

He came in and did a job for MI and is a consistent no-nonsense performer. Bowls off-spin and can get some important runs lower down the order. Good, solid buy for Gujarat.

James Neesham - unsold

Maybe teams will come back to him later.

Dominic Drakes - sold to Gujarat for Rs 1.1 crore

The 24-year-old West Indian was with CSK last season and he can go big when the mood takes him. An interesting buy for Gujarat.

Liam Livingstone - sold to PBKS for Rs 11.50 crore

The England allrounder brings good explosive power to the table and teams always want that. He is an opener and an occasional spin bowler, capable of bowling both right-arm leg and off spin. And that is his USP. KKR and Punjab in the mix for his services. Gujarat entered the fray at Rs 7 crore. SRH came in even later. Madness! Punjab won out in the end.

Time for Allrounders - Set 2.

Cheteshwar Pujara - unsold

Unsold for now. CSK weren’t feeling generous.

Aaron Finch - unsold

Base price of Rs 1.5 crore has no takers.

Saurabh Tiwary - unsold

MI didn’t want him back. He played quite a few games for them but fitness is suspect.

Eoin Morgan - unsold

Great as captain but really poor as a batter. No takers for the England skipper.

Marnus Labuschagne - unsold

No takers for the ‘lucky’ Labuschagne.

Mandeep Singh - sold to Delhi for Rs 1.1 crore

Punjab had high hopes for him once but he never quite managed to do justice to his talent. A huge drop in valuation but still, a chance to turn things around.

Dawid Malan - Unsold

Not explosive enough but can do a job. He might come back into the mix later.

Ajinkya Rahane - sold to KKR for Rs 1 crore

KKR get Rahane at his bade price. Good man to have around the team but will he get any game time?

Aiden Markram - sold to SRH for Rs 2.6 crore

Punjab started things off on Day 2 but SRH, who need good players desperately, also jumped in. MI came in late at Rs 2.4 crore. But SRH kept at it. He isn’t in the best form but can get things right.

And we are all set for Day 2 to begin. Charu Sharma is at it again.

Delhi Capitals might have had the best day one, here’s some reaction:

Speaking about his team’s major buys of the day, Delhi Capitals’ co-owner Parth Jindal said, “David Warner is a legend of the game. He was the match of the series and helped Australia to win the T20 World Cup. He has captained his previous team to the IPL win. He will work out well with Prithvi Shaw and with Ricky Ponting.”

“If you see how expensive all the fast bowlers were going, we realised that the original plans and numbers we had will not work out for us. Shardul is an improving character. We thought he would add balance to our squad. Hence, we went aggressively for him. Plus, we have been great admirers of Shardul Thakur’s skills and his progression. He can bowl with the new ball and in the death overs, and can also bat. We could not be more excited about having him,” Jindal added, while speaking about his team’s expensive buy of the auction so far.

11.30 am: Hello and welcome to live updates from day two of the Indian Premier League 2022 mega auction taking place in Bengaluru.
