Delhi Daredevils has bought Darren Sammy for INR 3.5 crores. The former Sunrisers Hyderabad allrounder was grabbed by DD after tough competition from the Rajasthan Royals (RR).

 

RR started bidding for Sammy. DD raised the bar to INR 1.1 crores. DD and RR kept on bidding till the amount reached 2.2 crores, at which point Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) joined the bid with 2.4 crores.

 

RCB and DD continued bidding till they reached the 3.5-crore-mark. DD probably wanted the World Twenty20 winning captain to lead them.
