IPL Auctions Have Begun

 Here are a few updates from the ongoing IPL auction .

We have a few of the interesting highlights of the IPL bids as follows:

Ishant Sharma is in the list, and no bids for him yet again. Why, one wonders? Well fitness woes for one, and his reputation as a Test specialist these days being the other.

Intense battle for Nathan Coulter-Nile in the second-offering, with the bid escalating to 3 cr in no time from his base price of Rs 1 crore. KKR finally bag NCN’s services for Rs 3.5 crore. Turns out to be the most expensive in the re-presentation so far.

Martin Guptill goes under the hammer again in the second half, and after getting ignored in the first round, goes to Kings XI Punjab for Rs 50 lakh.
