What the table tells us…

 

-          Having spent a fortune on Yuvraj Singh Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has probably put themselves in a precarious situation. If they have to buy even someone for one crore they will be left with a wallet of 80 lakhs for the remaining three.

-          Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Bangalore, Rajasthan Royals (RR), and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) cannot buy any overseas cricketer tomorrow.

-          Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Mumbai Indians (MI) have gone slow; both can buy six cricketers tomorrow. Kolkata can actually splurge in tomorrow’s auction: they can buy three overseas players and spend 1.5 crore per player.

-          Delhi Daredevils (DD) still has two ‘Right to Match cards’, while Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), Rajasthan and Bangalore have one each.

What the table does not tell us…

-          Hemang Badani, Simon Jones, Herschelle Gibbs, and Wasim Jaffer were up for the grabs.

-          Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra did not turn up.

-          144 players were not sold today.

-          Preity Zinta looked very happy. Richard Madley looked exhausted. Alex Hales was crestfallen. Jade Dernbach expected this.

-          It took Delhi INR 12.5 crores to get Dinesh Karthik share a dugout with Murali Vijay.
