We're going to be bringing you ALL the post-auction coverage on sportskeeda.com - Stay tuned for full squads, best buys, most expensive buys and much, much more. It's been a pleasure bringing the IPL auction to you. That's it from me Kaushal Raj, hope y'all have a fabulous week. GOODBYE! 
...
While RCB did not have the most happening auction, a look of their squad shows us why they're such a balanced unit.
...
Other signings include Pawan Negi, Aniket Choudhary, Praveen Dubey and Billy Stanlake.
...
RCB's most expensive buy is that of English fast bowler Tymal Mills who was acquired for 12 crore.

...
RCB sign 5 players; Ben Stokes is the most expensive player for 14.5 crore as he moved to the Rising Pune Supergiants! 
...
That's it from the IPL auction then! 
...
Will RCB add to the 5 players they bought in this year's auction?
...
We're back for the FINAL round of the IPL auction! 
...
A maximum of 24 players (If all teams submit 3 names) will be called out in the FINAL round of the auction! 
...
The next stage is for each team to submit upto 3 names who have not been sold yet that they would like to bid on. 
...
The auctioneer has raced through the 79 names that were resubmitted by the teams for the second round of bidding. 
...
Total money spent: 15.4 crore; remaining purse: 2.4 crore
...
List of players bought by RCB -
Pawan Negi 1 Crore 
Tymal Mills 12 Crore 
Aniket Choudhary 2 Crore 
Praveen Dubey 10 Lakh 
Billy Stanlake 30 Lakh
...
The action has gone by in a flash in the last hour! Teams were requested to list down the players they would like to bid on, and that has fastened the bidding process as we've seen a lot of players go after just one bid.
...
...
What a buy from the Mumbai Indians! In-form Sri Lankan batsman Asela Gunarathne to the Mumbai Indians for 30 Lakhs! 
...
RCB had 2.4 crore left in the purse and Mohammed Siraj was sold to SRH for 2.6 crore! 
...
This was like a game of poker! They just kept calling each other's bids before the Sunrisers priced the RCB out.
...
His base price was 20 Lakhs. He's gone up to 2.6 crore! 
...
Mohammed Siraj is a fast-bowler from Hyderabad.
...
RCB are in the race for signing Mohammed Siraj! 
...
RCB's latest acquisition will be towering over his teammates as he comes in at a cool 204 centimetres tall.
...
RCB sign Australian fast bowler Billy Stanlake for 30 Lakhs! 
...
2016 - Praveen Dubey signs for 35 Lakh. 2017 - Praveen Dubey signs for 10 Lakh. 
...
He was bought in last year's auction as well. 
...
RCB buy Karnataka leg-break bowler Praveen Dubey for 10 Lakh.
...
Imran Tahir, No.1 ranked ODI and T20 bowler in the world. Unsold twice! Ridiculous.
...
Oh blimey, Ishant Sharma's base price is 2 crore! Way too high. He remains unsold. 
...
Gautam Gambhir will be pleased with that! He spoke about targeting a few players, and Nathan Coulter-Nile certainly seemed like one of them.
...
There's a bidding war on for Nathan Coulter-Nile right now. His price is 3.5 Crore with the Knight Riders.
...
Plenty of experience and a world-class Indian seamer. The only doubt is whether they can afford him should there be a bidding war.
...
Ishant Sharma might be an interesting option for RCB. 
...
No Irfan Pathan in this year's IPL? A pity, but might be a reality. Unsold again. 
...
Business is razor sharp right now.
...
Chris Jordan. Sunrisers Hyderabad. 50 Lakhs! 
...
Saurabh Tiwary. 30 Lakhs. Mumbai Indians! 
...
Jason Roy! Nice and easy! Gujarat Lions the only bidder. Buy him for 1 crore.
...
Martin Guptill. Kings XI Punjab. 50 Lakh.
...
Punjab have done great business today! Very clear thought process. And they get another.
...
The first player in this session is Kiwi opener Martin Guptill. Base price 50L.
...
We're back LIVE and the post-lunch session is just about to get underway.
...
Not too much work left for them in the post lunch session. We can expect them to sign some exciting youngsters.
...
Did you guys have a good meal? Must have been a great one for the RCB team management. They seemed to have zeroed in on Tymal Mills and got their man. 
...
I shall be back with you after lunch! 
...
Summarising RCB's IPL auction so far - They didn't splash the cash for Ben Stokes as was widely expected, and instead went for Tymal Mills, for whom they spent a massive two crore! Earlier in the day, a tidy piece of business led to Pawan Negi's acquisition for a crore and before the lunch season, they added another pacer to their arsenal. Aniket Choudhary - who was used to train India's batsmen for the Mitchell Starc challenge was signed for 2 crore. There's just over 2 crore left in the kitty.
...
Varun Aaron. KXIP. 2.8 crores! 
...
While it looked like he might go unsold at one stage, his price has gone all the way up to 2.8 crore! 
...
Varun Aaron's life changed in a few seconds of madness between Keshav Bansal of the Lions and Virender Sehwag of Kings XI! 
...
Ex-RCB player Varun Aaron is going under the hammer. Will anyone sign him?
...
Another good piece of business from the Kings XI! The Kiwi pacer Matt Henry bought for 50 Lakhs.
