Following day 1 of the 2014 IPL auction, RCB Chairman Dr Vijay Mallya said: "The first day of the Auction went very well for RCB. We are on track to achieve our objectives and compose a competitive and well-balanced team. We are very happy to have acquired Yuvraj Singh who will not only strengthen our batting but also gives us another bowling option. We have significantly strengthened our bowling with Mitchell Starc, Varun Aaron and Ashok Dinda - all genuine pace bowlers. Plus we addressed our need for a good finisher with the acquisition of Albie Morkel."
