  • (1888PressRelease) February 09, 2016 - Shane Watson emerged as the biggest buy of the IPL Auction 2016 conducted in Bangalore on Saturday. Shane Watson was snapped up by Royal Challengers Bangalore for a whopping 9.5 crore, but the surprise buy of the day was of Pawan Negi when Delhi Daredevils lashed a huge sum of 8.5 crores to snap him up, making him the most expensive Indian bought in the IPL Auction 2016.

    The Base price for Watson was 2 crore when the bidding started and soon RCB and Pune jumped in for some heavy bidding, joined by Mumbai later. But the RCB team led by Virat Kohli managed to snap him up for 9.5 crores.

    Yuvraj Singh, who emerged as the top draw in last year's auction, was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad for 7 crores, while another surprise pick was for South African all-rounder Chris Morris, who had a base price of 50 lakh but sold out to Delhi Daredevils for a mind-boggling 7 crore.

    Another Chennai Super Kings player who went for a big money was Mohit Sharma, who had a base price of 1.5 crores and finally was bought by Kings XI Punjab for 6.5 crores.

    Some of the main players who went unsold included George Bailey, Martin Guptill, Usman Khawaja, Mahela Jayawardene, Mike Hussey and Brad Haddin.

    Other surprises of the day include, Aaron Finch, Australia's T20 captain and a big hitter of the ball went unsold in the first round and finally bought by Gujarat Lions for his base price of 1 crore in the next round.

    Also, Dale Steyn couldn't command much of a bigger price, as he was bought easily by Gujarat Lions for only 2.3 crores.

    The IPL Auction 2016 has shown the homework done by the respective team management, which was shown from the fact that the number of uncapped and young players snapped up in the auction.

    One such player is M.Ashwin, the rookie leg break bowler from Tamil Nadu, as he was snapped up by the new IPL outfit Pune Supergiants for a whopping 4.5 crore. The base price set for him was only 10 lakh.
