Cricket is religion in India. And IPL is that festival which brings everyone in this religion under one roof for a yearly dose of fanfare, camaraderie and celebration.
The festivities start months in advance with the auctions, and this year was no different.
With the seventh edition of the Indian Premier League slated to begin early next year, players from all franchises are set to go under the hammer for the 2nd time since the tournament’s inception in 2008.
Yesterday was the day we all had been waiting for, the IPL 6 Player Auction day! This was the sixth player auction and the teams spent around $11.89 million and 37 players were bought.
We now have 7 new players, some big names and some who have shown tremendous promise. The auction started sharp at 11 AM. RCB fans were excited and were all set to welcome new players in to the squad. The RCB management and officials were seated at table no. 6 and the proceedings were about to begin.
