Star of the IPL 7 auction Yuvraj Singh who was picked by the RCB for 14 crores then was the pick of the auction this time around as well, even the RCB went on to the extent of bidding 15.5Cr for the player they had released for 14Cr though the Delhi Daredevils bought Yuvraj Singh for another IPL record of 16 Crores. Dinesh Karthik was the next big name as he was sold to the Royal Challengers Bangalore for 10.5Cr.

Apart from this there were a few domestic players, who have shown promise in the current Ranji Trophy season and overall who were picked up by the big IPL franchises. A few shocking things that also occurred were Sri Lankan legends Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakara remaining unsold, New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor also found no takers for himself.

Due to the rules that have been framed, teams did not look very keen on adding big overseas names into the squads instead local and uncapped players were well received. Indian pacers Munaf Patel and RP Singh even after three rounds of bid appeal for their names had no bidders. Back in action Pragyan Ojha was bought again at base price by Mumbai Indians. The other two big names which took time to get picked were Zaheer Khan, who was bought by the Delhi Daredevils for 4Cr in the second round of auction and Irfan Pathan who got included into the Chennai Super Kings at his base price of 1.5Cr.
