The prices are unbelievable.  Some players going or what seems to be "cheap". As usual some players are getting a great boost to their bank balances. Thought De Kock might fetxh a higher price. Young Rabada certainly fetching a good price.

i love following the auction, it is so interesting following which teams are bidding for who etc...

Mills went for what he did for a few simple reasons -

1. Starc pulled out yesterday and RCB needed an overseas quick - preferably LA
2. Boult was right before him in the auction and MI missed out, so they therefore come into the bidding for Mills.
3. He started his Base Price low which makes him look like a bargain - a bidding war then drives the price up.

Not to mention he has actually been playing well  :) :)

yep i really don't get that why do they set it so high when you can see by the way Mills auction went if you get 2 teams bidding your price can go up very quickly or worst case you actually get sold for a low price and you still get sold and have a brilliant experience etc...

Or you could pull out before the start of the tournament if the price is too low. Bizarre from Bairstow, the experience would have done him some good!

really hoping mills goes well (not just being RCB fan) but he got natural ability and been shot by the back disease so deserves some luck

It's the totally despondent look; the owners all congratulating each other whilst the knowledgeable blokes looks on, beaten inside.

Don't get me wrong, I love him, but that is absolutely insane money...

i can see why though it has left Pune with hardly any cash.

However they have got a gun team - but they did have last year and got nowhere.

Overseas will be - Smith, Du Plessis, Stokes and Marsh plus Dhoni, Ashwin, Rahane.

Their bowling looks a bit weak though.

J Roy looks an unbelievable bargain. Mills for 1.4 mil?! We know he bowled Gayle with a yorker once on a Friday night at Hove....but 1.4 million?!

Corey Anderson has been terrible lately and hasn't been able to bowl consistently for a long while now.

Difficult for any player to hit the ground running after a bad injury.. Also not quite sure where you get the idea he is in poor form when he has hardly played in last 9 months.

Form is temporary, class is permanent.  :)

Prett sure all players enter the auction again in 2018, so Pune and Bangalore went big on Stokes and Mills as they know it's only for 1 season. Guptill bargain of a lifetime 50lahks! Sad that Brad Hogg missed out. Also Tahir surprisingly got no love

will be interesting to see if Roy gets a game considering he is at GL which already include Overseas players - Brendon McCullum, Aaron Finch, Dwayne Smith, Dwayne Bravo, James Faulkner and Andrew Tye.
