Shreyas Iyer predictably became the highest paid player among the marquee set with Kolkata Knight Riders making a whopping bid of Rs 12.25 crore after an intense price war at the Indian Premier League auction on Saturday.

On Day 2, it was former India Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane who was bought by the Knight Riders for his base price of Rs 1 crore.
