The IPL 2024 auction was place for the first time outside of India. On December 19, 2023, Dubai's Coca-Cola Arena hosted the IPL 2024 mini-auction, with 333 players going under the hammer. A total of 77 slots were available, with 30 of them reserved for international players.

Mitchell Starc's INR 24.75 crore bid and Pat Cummins' INR 20.50 crore bid shattered records for the most expensive players bought in IPL auction history, while some other players received high bids despite the restriction of only four overseas players in the playing XI.

With limited spots available for players, there was a lot of bidding done by all the franchises and at the forefront of them all were the 5-time champions each, Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. They got into a bidding war several times during the auction and we take a look at 3 players who saw MI and CSK bidding for them.

Here are three players for whom both CSK and MI got into a bidding war in the IPL 2024 auction:

Robin Minz, who hails from Gumla, Jharkhand, was an unknown player in the IPL 2024. He was scouted by Mumbai Indians (MI) franchise and went to the UK in July. The scouts were impressed by Miz's batting and wicket-keeping skills. 

Both Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) started the bid for the young keeper-batter when his name came up for auction. Both the franchises took the bidding to INR 1 cr before CSK had to back out. Finally, Gujarat Titans entered the fray and gave MI a run for their money, before buying the young Minz for INR 3.6 Cr.
