SRH Auction Summary: Sunrisers knew they needed spinners and quality ones, they went out and secured those in quick succession. Then got some back-up for fast bowlers and in the wicket-keeping department.
...
And with that, Sunrisers Hyderabad end their IPL Auction 2017 with still INR 12.25 crore in the bank. They end it with a total of 25 players and with a maximum of nine overseas players.


...
And this brings the curtain on IPL Auction 2017.
