Colin Munro has been in phenomenal form in the last few months

Over the course of two days, eight franchises competed with each other to find the best combination for their team. The auction of the Indian Premier League always leaves fans startled. A few players were procured at a price which is beyond expectation and a few reputed international stars were left without any bids.

Let us take a look at some players who were the best bargains in this year's IPL auction.

#5 Colin Munro (INR 1.9 crore)

Former Kolkata Knight Riders player, Kiwi superstar Colin Munro was picked up by the Delhi Daredevils for a nominal price of INR 1.9 crores. Munro, who had a base price of INR 50 lakh, was expected to fetch a big amount of money after his recent heroics in T20 cricket.

The explosive left-handed batsman has featured in 154 T20 matches where he averages 30 with an impressive strike rate of 147. The New Zealander has scored three centuries in T20I cricket. Munro's exploits can be beneficial for the Delhi Daredevils as he can score quickly in the powerplay which will give Gautam Gambhir to play the anchor's role during the IPL.
