Star Australian trio Mitchell Starc, Chris Lynn and Glenn Maxwell will earn close to $2 million each in this year's IPL, but Mitchell Johnson was surprisingly snubbed on day one of the auction. His IPL journey began with Rajasthan and remained a loyal servant to the side till the franchise was banned after 2015.

Players featuring in India's domestic T20 tournament, which concluded on Friday, will doubtless have considered their IPL chances. The 2018 edition will be the 11th year and the season starts on 4 April. "The players were not even bothered about the match", he says. Amla wasn't bought despite making two hundreds in the last season of the IPL.

"Whatever team I go in, I will look forward to win the cup them".

The bidding will continue until all but one team backs out and the team with the highest bid will get the player. When will the final be played?

The seventh set of the IPL auction included the spinners.

This weekend - 27-28 January.

A total of 578 domestic and worldwide stars will go under the hammer as the eight franchises loosen their purse strings to find the flawless combinations ahead of the 11th edition of the IPL. These include 361 Indian cricketers and 25 from England.

Chennai Super Kings ended 3rd in the points table with 16 points after Royals and Kings XI Punjab. There are 244 capped players out of which 62 are Indian players.

De Grandhomme was in the first group of all-rounders, and also attracted interest from Sunrisers Hyderabad, who had earlier picked up Kane Williamson. "The IPL plays a big part in our lives". "My parents are ecstatic - they're happy that I got another chance to play and improve my game", he added.

The slabs for internationals (Indian and foreign) are ₹2 crore, ₹1.5 crore, ₹1 crore, ₹75 lakh and ₹50 lakh, while uncapped players are base-priced at ₹40 lakh, ₹30 lakh and ₹20 lakh. There are 31 players in the ₹1 crore category, 23 in the ₹75 lakh and 122 in the ₹50 lakh base price bucket.
