The Players' Auction for the eighth edition of the Indian Premier League again saw cash being splurged. Sixty-seven players, including 23 overseas, were sold as Rs 86.8 crore was spent by the eight franchises in Bengaluru, on Monday.

Yuvraj Singh, left out of India's squad for the ongoing ICC World Cup, was once again the top draw at the auction, as Delhi Daredevils spent a massive Rs 16 crore to sign him up.

They staved off stiff competition from Royal Challengers Bangalore, who had paid Rs 14 crore for him last year.

Dinesh Karthik again commanded a good price as Royal Challengers Bangalore snapped him up for Rs 10.5 crore.

Delhi, who released a lot of players after the last season, went all out at the auction, spending Rs 7.5 crore for Angelo Mathews, four crore for veteran pacer Zaheer Khan and 3.5 crore on leg-spinner Amit Mishra.

New Zealand pacer Trent Boult also made a windfall as he went for Rs 3.8 crore to Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Mumbai Indians purchased Australia opener Aaron Finch for 3.2 crore and Murali Vijay was bought by Kings XI Punjab for Rs 3 crore.
