Raj Angad Bawa now! Surely he will get a few bidders? SRH open the bidding. MI and PBKS enter too. MI hold the bid at INR 1.1 crore now. PBKS hold the top bid at INR 2 crore. And, that is the price at which PBKS get their man!

CSK look interested but withdraw as the bid reaches INR 1.7 crore. Sold to MI for INR 1.7 crore!

Right. Yash Dhull into the auction now! Base price is at INR 20 lakh. Guess what, DC start the bidding. PBKS arrive late at the market but arrive just in time. The bidding has gone up to INR 50 lakh and that is the price at which DC get Dhull! Frantic few minutes for DC, I must say!

Ripal Patel – another former DC cricketer under the hammer now. And, DC pick him up for INR 20 lakh!

The first set after the break is that of uncapped all-rounders. Lalit Yadav, who played for DC last season, is up for grabs. SRH open the bidding at INR 20 lakh and are quickly joined by DC. SRH are out of the reckoning and DC snap up Lalit for INR 65 lakh!
