IPL 2019 Auction: Shimron Hetmyer, Carlos Brathwaite earn big

IPL 2019 Auction: Shimron Hetmyer, Carlos Brathwaite earn big

Seamer Jaydev Unadkat and mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy were the big buys in today's auction both going for more than $1.5 million.

KXIP also spent big on England all-rounder Sam Curran, buying him for Rs 7.2 crore. A few years later, he resumed playing cricket, though this time as a pacer.

It means the former South Africa batsman, 33, will miss Glamorgan's participation in the One-Day Cup. "Welcome to Mumbai", tweeted Mumbai Indians. A knee injury forced him to take to spin bowling, and he has only played one first-class game. The 23-year-old, who came with a base price of Rs 75 lakh, went for Rs 4.20 crore to KXIP. On Tuesday, the Royals lapped him up him after a bidding battle with KXI, CSK and Delhi Capitals. Delhi Capitals paid Rs 2 crore and Rs 50 for Rutherford and Keemo Paul while Royals bought Thomas for Rs 1.1 crore. Meanwhile, left-arm quick Barinder Sran went to Mumbai for INR 3.4 crores (approx Dollars 472,000). This year he played for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, who finished outside of the playoffs.

Nuggets' second-half rally leads to win over Raptors
Leonard was nothing short of brilliant for the Raptors (23-9), putting up a double-double with 29 points and 13 rebounds. From the Raptors' depth to their rough play down the stretch, here are four takeaways from the loss in Denver.


The IPL 2019 Auction saw the eight franchises shell out in excess of Rs 100 crore, for a total of 60 players. The West Indies allrounder first made a name for himself in the World T20 final in 2016 when he hit four sixes off four balls to win the title at Eden Gardens.

Brendon McCullum has gone unsold in the Indian Premier League auction. But Jonny Bairstow did find a home.

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.
