IPL Auction 2019: Jaydev Unadkat, uncapped Varun Chakravarty emerge top buys; Yuvraj goes to MI

IPL Auction 2019: Jaydev Unadkat, uncapped Varun Chakravarty emerge top buys; Yuvraj goes to MI

Jaipur, December 18: Uncapped cricketer Varun Chakravarthy on Tuesday (December 18) fetched a sensational bid of Rs 8.4 crore, more than 40 times his base price before veteran Yuvraj Singh finally found a buyer at the IPL players' auction that had an unmissable Caribbean flavour to it.

Chakravarthy, with a base price of Rs 20 lakh, went to Kings XI Punjab after a bidding war that also involved Delhi Capitals, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals. KXIP, who had the maximum money going into the auction, also spent big on England all-rounder Sam Curran, buying him for Rs 7.2 crore, the most for an overseas player on Tuesday.

Yuvraj fans must have also heaved a sigh of relief when the 37-year-old was bought by Mumbai Indians for his base price of Rs 1 crore after going unsold initially.

"If you are wondering why this took time...we've just got back to senses! Welcome to Mumbai," tweeted Mumbai Indians. Yuvraj secured a last-minute deal but his IPL fortunes have been declining rapidly.

In 2015, he fetched a record Rs 16 crore deal with the Delhi franchise but was picked up by KXIP at his base of price of Rs 2 crore last season before the team released him. Both uncapped and capped Indians were in demand at the auction.

Medium pacer Jaydev Unadkat became a millionaire once again with a Rs 8.4 crore bid from Rajasthan Royals but the spotlight was firmly on Chakravarthy, the 27-year-old mystery spinner from Tamil Nadu who gave up a career as a freelance architect to pursue cricket.

Chakravarthy has risen to prominence owing to a strong showing in the Tamil Nadu Premier League. He has been widely credited for Madurai Panthers maiden TNPL title win this year.

Unadkat, on the other hand, is back in the RR fold after being released at the end of the 2018 season. He had been bought for Rs 11.5 crore by RR earlier this year. On Tuesday, the Royals lapped him up him after a bidding battle with KXI, CSK and Delhi Capitals.

Besides Chakaravarthy, the other uncapped players who attracted huge amounts were 16-year-old all-rounder Prayas Ray Barman from Bengal (Rs 1.5 cr to RCB), Punjab wicketkeeper PrabhSimran Singh (Rs 4.8 cr to KXIP), Mumbai batsmen Shivam Dube (Rs 5 cr to RCB) and Uttar Pradesh batsman Akshdeep Singh (Rs 3.6 cr to RCB). Akshdeep was bought after he re-entered the auction pool.

With uncertainty over the availability of Australian and England players in a World Cup year, the teams went after the West Indians.

Out of the 20 overseas slots available, six were sealed by the Caribbean players including Shimron Hetmyer, Carlos Brathwaite, Nicholas Pooran, Oshane Thomas, Keemo Paul and Sherfane Rutherford.
