IPL auction 2011

IPL auction 2011 makes Indian Premier League among biggest spenders in the world

IPL auction 2011The first day of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is all hit. Teams fought with each other to rope in star players.

Gujarat was at the forefront as some of their players were at the top on the first day of auctioning. Held on Saturday in Bangalore, it drew crowd from the Indian film industry, politics and business houses. However, the most-sought after players came from Gujarat.

The popularity of the Gujarati players could be gauged from the fact that five cricketers were from the state. Those who were at the centre of attraction included Yusuf Pathan, Irfan Pathan, Ravindra Jadeja, Cheteshwar Pujara and Parthiv Patel.

They were up for grabs. Bidders forked out a total of Rs 27.32 crore to purchase them. That is no mean feat. At the top of the heap were the two Pathan brothers: Yusuf and Irfan. They together took home over Rs18 crore.
