When Yuvraj Singh went unsold in the first round of the 2019 IPL auctions, there were plenty of eyebrows raised.

India discards Mohit Sharma (₹5 crore) and Barinder Singh Sran (₹4.5 crore), too, drew a lot of interest from the franchises. He had been bought for Rs 11.5 crore by RR earlier this year.

In 2015, Yuvraj fetched a record Rs 16 crore deal with the Delhi franchise since then his IPL fortunes have fallen rapidly.

The 37-year-old, who last played for India in June 2017, has put himself in the Rs 1 crore base price bracket this time alongside other capped Indians - Wriddhiman Saha, Mohammed Shami and Axar Patel.

Having retained the bulk of their side, defending champions Chennai Super Kings hardly required any fresh faces after regaining Mohit Sharma for Rs 5 crore.

Yuvraj initially went unsold in the auction and it was only after he re-entered the players' pool, Mumbai Indians bought him.

While England all-rounder Sam Curran (₹7.2 crore, Kings XI Punjab) and South Africa batsman Colin Ingram (₹6.4 crore, Delhi Capitals) emerged as top draws among the overseas players, West Indies T20 captain Carlos Brathwaite (₹5 crore, Kolkata Knight Riders) lad the pack of six West Indies players who were signed. He had many takers before KXIP made him the joint most expensive buy also at Rs 8.40 crore.
