Congratulations, winners of IPL 5 Auction Challenge!
Spot-on answers by so many of you! As we all knew, R Jadeja was the costliest Indian player during the auction. But, well deserved too! The, maybe, next captain of Team Sri Lanka was the costliest foreign player..! Congrats to all those who got it correct..
Some shockers too.. Lots of awesome players went unsold. Kevin O'Brien being 1 of the examples. Another major reason for no buy-outs was that most of the players will not be available for IPL because of National commitments. Respecting that, all the IPL teams made fair and square decisions!
Here is the complete list of the Auction Day: Which player was bought by which team and who went unsold!
And now for the winners.. Agreed it was a tough competition. Tough questions! But fans have given brilliant answers and scored superb points too!
The first prize goes to: Gayleactic! Your reasons were excellent for all the answers. You win: RCB Red-n-Gold jersey + flag + player poster + wrist band + key chain!
The second prize goes to: Karthik Shetty! As usual, deeply drawn insights and very well guessed! You win: RCB Fan jersey + flag + player poster + wrist band + key chain!
The third prize goes to: Pushpalatha06! 2 attempts; both had different point-of-view! You win: RCB Fan jersey + flag + wrist band + key chain!
And the consolation prize winners are: Sachin Negi and Rohit Kumar.. Well done guys..! You win: Flag + wrist band + key chain!
Well played all the fans! It was quite a shocker that Pune Warriors didn't participate in the auction. Since it was un-called for, we could not allocate any points to the fans.. But all-in-all, it was super fun! A special mention to the Fan Advisory Board members: Chintan, Vishwajeet, Sachin, Tejas, Ayush, Nivedith for the all-round support in this Challenge! Kudos to the team!
He, along with the fab members of the Fan Advisory Board, plot new schemes to engage with fans and trouble shoot their problems.
