    The players' auction for the fifth season of the Indian Premier League saw a total of 69 players going under the hammer, with 25 being bought and the rest remaining unsold.

    Indian allrounder Ravindra Jadeja was the biggest catch of the day, picked up by Chennai Super Kings for over $ 2mn in a secret bidding after a tie between CSK and Deccan Chargers. Another Indian, Vinay Kumar, surprisingly turned out to be the dark horse, bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore for $ 1mn. Delhi Daredevils bought now-defunct Kochi Tuskers skipper Mahela Jayawardene for $ 1.4mn.

    In a surprise move, Kolkata Knight Riders went frantically for the unheralded West Indies Sunil Narine, who was purchased for $ 7,00,000. The auction also saw Ireland allrounder Kevin O'Brien, who was expected to draw big bucks after his heroics in the World Cup last year, going unsold.
