Phew! What a roller-coaster ride today has been! Surprises, steals, bidding wars - we were treated to all on Day 2 of the Pro Kabaddi League Auction 2021! After a riveting day in the auction room, a majority of the franchises will go back content with their purchases. 

Defending champions Bengal Warriors and U Mumba had a quiet day, picking up only a foreign player each. On the other hand, Tamil Thalaivas roped in some big names. Puneri Paltan had an impressive Day 2, picking up some Bhaari players for their side while the Bengaluru Bulls did plenty of shopping as well. 

In the last few moments of Day 2, Dabang Delhi KC sprung up and acquired the services of Sandeep Narwal while the Gujarat Giants strengthened their defence. The Haryana Steelers picked up Rohit Gulia for ₹83 lakhs. Jaipur Pink Panthers used both their FBM Cards to retain Deepak Hooda and Sandeep Dhull for another season. 

However, it was Pardeep Narwal who stole the show with a record-breaking bid of ₹1.60 Crores. Narwal will be seen in action for UP Yoddha, who went on to complement Narwal's purchase with an FBM used on Shrikant Jadhav. The Telugu Titans picked up some big names including the likes of Siddharth Desai and Rohit Kumar. Patna Pirates, in the absence of Pardeep Narwal now, opted for Sachin Tanwar and Prashanth Kumar Rai to handle their raiding department. 

Right then, that wraps up our coverage for Day 2. Do join us back tomorrow morning as the remaining Category B players will be auctioned along with Categories C and D as well. Until tomorrow then, this is me, Maanas Upadhyay, along with Prasen Moudgal, Gaurav and Mohamed Farzan bidding you adieu! Stay home and stay safe!
