IPL-III auction: Who went where, for how much

January 19, 2010 19:27 IST

West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard and New Zealand pacer Shane Bond emerged the most expensive players, sold for a whopping US $750,000 (approximately Rs 3.42 crore) each at the players' auction for the third edition of the Indian Premier League, in Mumbai on Tuesday.

Pollard, who impressed in the inaugural Champions League T20 last year, started with a base price of $ 200, 000 while Bond, who was keen to join Chennai Super Kings ahead of the auction, started at $100, 000.

There was a four-way tie between Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders for Pollard, but the Mumbai side eventually prevailed via a silent tie-breaker bid, the rule being introduced for the first time in the IPL.

Like Pollard, there was a keen tussle for Bond. Chennai Super Kings set the pace but in the end it was a fight between Kolkata Knight Riders and Deccan Chargers, who both quoted $750, 000. The Kolkata team won the bid via the tie-breaker.

Here's a look at which players went to which franchise, and for how much.
