As you know that the IPL auction 2018 was held on 27th and 28th of January in Bengaluru, and two of the most popular teams in IPL came back from suspension which are the two times champion Chennai Super Kings and the inaugural season champions Rajasthan Royals. 169 players were filled in the 182 available slots and right from the beginning, the league has been a destination where talent meets opportunity. It was once again clear where 113 Indian cricketers were bought, out of which 71 are uncapped, and will have a chance to let loose their potential in the upcoming edition. In last season, players from Afghanistan made their debut and this time, a new addition with Sandeep Lamichhane will be becoming the first cricketer from Nepal to join the world’s best T20 league.

With 56 overseas players, this season will see representations from nine different nations. The Indian U19 cricketers currently playing in the ICC World Cup in New Zealand were the hot picks in this IPL season, as the franchises invested in the youth. Fast bowlers Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti were bought by KKR and both received bids of INR 3 crore.

The total of players sold in this season is 169 out if which 56 are overseas players and 113 are Indian players. The total amount spent in this IPL auction is INR 431.70 Cr.
