When will 2019 IPL Player Auction (IPL 2019 auction) take place?

Shimron Hetmyer was the first big earner in the IPL 2019 auctions as he was picked up for INR 4.2 Crore by Royal Challengers Bangalore. Denly's second coming included lower order runs and four wickets with his handy legspin, which found him named Player of the Year by the Professional Cricketers' Association as well as the domestic T20 and One-Day competitions.

Melania Trump ( Cecily Strong ) says she got divorced, improved her English and launched a real estate empire. He was imitated during the show's opening skit, with Alec Baldwin once again reprising the role.

Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab entered into a bidding war for Bairstow, who will only be available to play in next year's tournament until April 25 before being required to report for England duty. Alongside the big names, a host of uncapped Indian players will be up for grabs with some of them expected to turn millionaires overnight.

While a total of 351 players are all set to go under the hammer at today's VIVO IPL Auction, all eyes were on India's all rounder Yuvraj Singh.

The teams will go into the auction well aware of the players' availability.

Jaydev Unadkat once again kicked up a bidding war as he became the most expensive player to go under the hammer so far, acquired by Rajasthan Royals for Rs 8.4 crore in the IPL Auction 2019.
