That then folks concludes the 2017 IPL auction. It has been a day that has seen some major purchases for franchises and some prominent players going unsold.

As far as the Daredevils are concerned, they bought as many as  9 players, including the likes of Kagiso Rabada, Corey Anderson in the overseas department and the likes of Aditya Tare, Ankit Bawne etc in the Indian domestic setup.

They also got an old player in the form of Angelo Matthews who played for the team earlier. All in all, it was a good auction for the team, who will go back with satisfaction for the buys they have made during the course of the day.

The interesting bit about the Daredevils last year was the manner in which they shuffled their side around, in hope of giving most of their squad an opportunity to showcase their talent and as a result could not zero in on a playing XI, comprising of a fixed set of players.

The team will be carrying a purse of 23 crores into the auction. Will they once again hit the headlines like they did in last year's auction? 
...
The Zaheer Khan-led side let go of 7 players ahead of the auction, including their most expensive buy from last year, Pawan Negi, whom they bought for a mind-boggling sum of 8.5 crores.

Others to also find themselves out of their squad are the likes of Nathan Coulter-Nile, South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir, Joel Paris etc.
