CSK want their old player back and CSK take it to 575L, at the moment. SRH take it to 600L, but CSK raise it once more. The same process is repeated again, and CSK is still on top.  Before the auction, Ambati Rayudu said ,”I feel very comfortable there at CSK – in terms of my role, what they expect out of me, whatever I can do. That way you feel like you want to give more than your best and more than your 100% for the team”, and CSK have responded brilliantly.

Ishan reaches 1400L! And no surprises, as MI keep going higher. SRH move it up to 1450L and MI respond by going to 1475L. Wow, as Mr. Sharma says – Ishan has reached INR 15 crores….and keeps going higher! This is insane bidding by MI – at 15.25 crores.

SRH go 600L! 650L by SRH, and PBKS ask for some time, after which they raise the paddle.

    RCB start the bidding process, CSK raise it to 300 lakhs. RCB taking some time, and raise it, only for CSK to raise their paddles once more. Karthik moves up to 360L, with RCB on top. CSK take a long time before taking it to 380L. RCB go up to 400L, and now, the members in the CSK table look at each other, as if unsure whether to proceed or not. They do.

RCB move higher without hesitation, and surprisingly, CSK raise their paddles quickly. RCB take it to 500L after giving it some thought. CSK asking for time, will they go on? They will, taking a seriously long time once more, getting input from outside. RCB move it up to 550L. CSK signal that they’re out now.
