Bangladesh poster boy Shakib Al Hasan and left-arm seamer Mustafizur Rahman have found team in the much-awaited IPL auction which happened on Thursday in Chennai ahead of the 14th edition of the T20 extravaganza. However, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah Riyad and Mohammad Saifuddin were uncalled for auction. 

Shakib has returned to Kolkata Knight Riders for 3.2 Cr, while Mustafiz’s sold to his base price of INR 1 crore to Rajasthan Royals.

The base price of Shakib in this auction was INR 2 crore. In the second set, KKR took him from the all-rounder category. Kolkata and Punjab have fought to get this all-rounder.

Previously Shakib has played with Kolkata Knight Riders and won in 2012 and 2014 edition, while he played with Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2018. The Southpaw has played 63 games in the IPL and scored 746 runs in addition to picking up 59 wickets.

On the other hand, Mustafiz was seen playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2016 and Mumbai Indians in 2018. Hyderabad first recruited Mustafiz for Rs 14 million as he picked 17 wickets in 16 matches and helped them to clinch the title.

After leaving Hyderabad, Fizz joined Mumbai Indians in 2018 for Rs 22 million. In that season, Mustafiz took 7 wickets in 7 matches for the team. Mustafiz has played 25 matches took 25 wickets with 7.51 economy in IPL.

Moreover, Chris Morris became the most expensive player in the history of the IPL, when Rajasthan Royals paid INR 16.25 crore for him.

Taking centre stage in a high-spending auction for this year's tournament, the fee smashed the record INR 16.00 crore paid for Yuvraj Singh by Delhi in 2015.

Punjab snapped up Australian quick Jhye Richardson for INR 14.00 crore.The 24-year-old has played just two Tests and nine T20 matches.

Former Australia captain Steve Smith went to Delhi Capitals for INR 2.2 crore after being released by Rajasthan Royals.

Three-time IPL champions Chennai, led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, got England spin bowler Moeen Ali for INR 7.00 more than three times the fee paid when he was last at auction in 2018.

The total spend by franchises was 145.3 crore. So almost 50% of the total spend was on 5 players, the rest was on 52 players.

Meanwhile Chinese phone maker Vivo returned as the IPL's lead sponsor after the deal was suspended last year following a deadly border clash between India and China.

Vivo had signed a five-year contract in 2017 worth more than $330 million to sponsor the IPL.
