IPL Auction: No hat-trick for Yuvraj Singh; Shane Watson, Pawan Negi fetch maximum

http://www.indiantelevision.com/sites/drupal7.indiantelevision.co.in/files/styles/smartcrop_800x800/public/images/tv-images/2016/02/08/IPL.jpg?itok=4qbZFrUV

MUMBAI: Yuvraj Singh is a name that makes headlines every time the player auction for the Indian Premier League (IPL) takes place. He has established himself as a marquee asset and expectations are always soaring. However, the 2016 IPL auction saw a new Indian player emerging as the most sought after. 

Youngster Pawan Negi went to Delhi Daredevils and became the most expensive Indian player to go under the hammer at the recent auction fetching a price of Rs 8.5 crore, while the Australian cricketer Shane Watson emerged as the most expensive player of the IPL auction with Royal Challengers Bangalore bagging him for a mammoth Rs 9.5 crore.  

The left arm orthodox all rounder Negi’s base price was Rs 30 lakh. What a day for the young man, who has just been named in the India squad for the Asia Cup and ICC World T20!

Yuvraj Singh, whose performance last year failed to make any headlines, too garnered great attention. Sunrisers Hyderabad dished out Rs 7 crore for him. Last year Singh's was won for a whopping Rs 14 crore by Delhi Daredevils.

“Yuvraj will help Sunrisers rake in more money and fans. It’s a franchise that has not had the stardom yet, no big Indian brand has played for the team and now that they have Yuvraj, they can certainly generate higher sponsorship revenue. Fans will also be very happy with the move,” said a sports media planning expert.

Sony Six aired the entire auction live on 6 February and the telecast had a good traction on social media too with #IPLAuction trending the entire day.

The entire list of players who went under the hammer and were bought by the various teams are as follows:
