That's it from our end for the 2018 IPL auction. Hope you all enjoyed it. We will be back with our Live coverage of IPL when the tournament gets underway. Till then, this is Vignesh Ananthasubramanian signing off. Good bye!

16:22 (IST)28 JAN 2018

Mumbai Indians’ final squad for IPL 2018: Krunal Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Pat Cummins, Evin Lewis, Suryakumar Yadav, Ben Cutting, Mustafizur Rahman, Rahul Chahar, Pradeep Sangwan, Jason Behrendorff, Jean-Paul Duminy, Saurabh Tiwary, Tajinder Dhillon, Akila Dhananjaya, Aditya Tare, Siddhesh Lad, Mayank Markande, Sharad Lumba, Anukul Roy, Mohsin Khan, MD Nidheesh.

16:22 (IST)28 JAN 2018

They made a big mistake at the auction by using their RTM for Pollard, especially after bidding for the Trinidadian. They could have bought him and used their RTM on Jos Buttler, who was eventually acquired by Rajasthan Royals. Apart from that, they were brilliant at the auction.

16:22 (IST)28 JAN 2018

Apart from the signings, the franchise were also involved in some intense bidding for some players including the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, KL Rahul, Chris Lynn, Dwayne Bravo etc.

16:22 (IST)28 JAN 2018

The second day saw them going for under-19 leg-spinner Rahul Chahar before they bought their priority pick, Evin Lewis, for just INR 3.8 crores, a steal for a batsman of Lewis' calibre. They followed it up with some good overseas picks in Ben Cutting, JP Duminy and Jason Behrendorff and good uncapped Indian players.

16:22 (IST)28 JAN 2018

They started the bidding on day one by using their RTM card on Kieron Pollard before they bought the pace duo of Mustafizur Rahman and Pat Cummins. Later in the day, Mumbai used their second RTM on Krunal Pandya, something that was expected even before the auction started. They ended the first day with the signing of wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan and middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav.

16:21 (IST)28 JAN 2018
