That's that then. Thanks for joining us!
...
A look at the Rajasthan Royals roster
...
So Chameera was the Royals' final buy as the auction comes to and end
...
It's Dushmanta Chameera and RR are the only bidders at 50 lakhs
...
Chris Gayle is first up. Surely he will find a bidder now. And he does. To the Kings XI Punjab for 2 crores
...
We are back for the final session. 15 players remain.
...
That ends the session. RR still have 2 crores left and can nominate one name from the list of unsold players who they would like
...
RR are also in for Aryaman Vikram Birla. They start off the bidding war at 20 lakhs. Punjab dip their toe in the water but RR emerge victorious again at 30 lakhs

A whole host of unsold players and then RR wake up again. Jatin Saxena for 20 lakhs
...
RR have 20 players in their roster now and can buy a maximum of five more players. They have a remaining purse of 2.65 crores
...
They are the only bidders and get him for 20 lakhs. Decent buy
...
Just as I say it, they raise their paddle for Mahipal Lomror
...
It's gone quiet in the RR camp again.
...
Ben Laughlin at 50 lakhs and Rajasthan make the only bid. SOLD.

Corey Anderson and Dale Steyn remain UNSOLD

Prashant Chopra up next, another keeper, and yet again RR in the mix

...
And SOOOOLD. To Delhi Daredevils for 1.4 crores
...
Rajasthan start the bidding at 75 lakhs. Delhi too decide to enter the fun. 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 130 and 140 it is with Delhi
...
But here they are, targetting Naman Ojha
...
Rajasthan Royals don't really have the funds to target the big names.
...
Gayle remains UNSOLD
...
Chris Gayle first up. What a way to start. At 2 crore
...
And we are back. 64 unsold players up for grabs now. Tighten your seat belts
...
...
We are done with all the names and after a 50-minute lunch break, the teams will submit a list of unsold players who they are interested in and they will be made available in the auction again.
...
Utkarsh Singh is the last name before the lunch break, and he goes UNSOLD
...
So, another leggie in the Rajasthan ranks. Exciting times
...
The Royals have woken up again. MS Midhun for 20 lakhs. Rajasthan the only bidders and they get him.

Fabid Ahmed, Akhil Herwadkar, Monu Singh, all remain unsold and we are running through the names now
...
The Royals have gone quiet again. Players come and go but the paddle remains firmly on the table
...
...
What a great moment for him and for cricket in Nepal
...
And it's the first Nepal player in the auction next. Sandeep Lamichhane, and he heads to Delhi for 20 lakhs.
...
Ben Dwarshuis to KXIP for INR 1.4 crore.

...
it's the Royals who do at 140 lakhs and Kings XI Punjab get the Australian. Not a great deal according to me but what do I know?
...
They look confident with their 60 lakhs bid but KXIP raise the stakes. Who will blink first?
...
Up next Ben Dwarshuis. Without the mustache may I add. And Rajasthan Royals are in big time
...
...
After waiting on the wings for so long, the Royals are active again in ana attempt to fill their squad
...
Next up Shreyas Gopal. RR with the only bid at 20 lakhs and they have him. Shreyas Gopal to the Royals for 20 lakhs
...
Rajasthan back out at 50 lakhs though and Mumbai get their man
...
It's for Tajinder Dhillon. They start the bidding at 20 lakhs but Mumbai make their entry as well. 
...
Finally Rajasthan wake up from their slumber
...
It's up to 7.2 crores already. Completely out of nowhere. And SOLD to Kings XI Punjab.
