IPL Player Auction 2019 Live Updates: 70 slots up for grabs, total of 145.25 crore to be spent in Jaipur

IPL Player Auction 2019 Updates: It has been an eventful day in the IPL 2019 Players Auction. Big money has once again been spent but no player reached the double digit in crores. Jaydev Unadkat once again grabbed headlines as he was brought for a whopping Rs.8.40 Crore and returns to Rajasthan. But alongside him, was uncapped Varun Chakravarthy who was bought for the same price by Kings XI Punjab. England all-rounder Sam Curran was also one of the names that stared a bidding war, but it was Punjab who claimed his services. Veteran Yuvraj Singh finally managed to get a franchise to play and he will this time represent three time champions, Mumbai Indians.  (Read in Hindi)

With the rule of having 7 Indians out of the playing XI in the IPL, the domestic players always get an edge over the foreign ones. Also, due to their availability during the entire course of the tournament, Indian players usually attract far greater bids at auctions. The defending champions Chennai Super Kings released only three players while other teams have released almost half of their squads, so the latter have to be a little more attentive during the bidding to complete their squad.
