The IPL Player Auctions for the 2019 season held on Tuesday had 351 players who were up for grabs. Eight of them breached the Rs 5 crore mark and Jaydev Unadkat and Varun Chakravarthy kicked up bidding wars to become the most expensive players obtained by teams. Unadkat, and the relatively unknown Chakravarthy, were bought by Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab respectively for Rs 8.4 crore.
