  • Yuvraj Singh Sold For Rs 1 Crore to Mumbai Indians at IPL Auction 2019 Check His Price at Auctions

They already traded Quinton de Kock before the auctions and with the inclusion of Yuvraj Singh, the squad resembles a settled look. Prabhsimran Singh would be playing in the IPL for the first time and it would be great exposure for the 17-year old wicketkeeper-batsman.

Once a near-guarantee to trigger bidding wars, Yuvraj Singh's value at the IPL auction has declined since Delhi Daredevils bought him for 16 crore in the 2015 auction. With majority coming at relatively low, below-one-crore base prices, they were all snapped up for a cumulative INR 17 crores, five times their combined base price of INR 3.4 crores.

But with the World Cup-winning star not making a huge impact with the bat in recent times and his performances in the previous season couldn't inspire faith either, no franchise was willing to take the gamble.

KXIP also spent big on England all-rounder Sam Curran, buying him for Rs 7.2 crore.


Consequently, Yuvraj went unsold in the first round.

With their latest IPL deals, Yuvraj and Ishant Sharma's count has risen up to six IPL sides, equalling the record set by a number of others already, most famously Parthiv Patel.

Earlier, Axar Patel became one of the costliest Indian players when he was bought for Rs 5 crore by Delhi Capitals on Tuesday. "He has won every trophy there is to be won", Ambani told the host broadcaster after the auction. However, he came back in the final round and Mumbai Indians snapped him up at his base price of Rs 1 crore. Malinga had served as Mumbai's bowling mentor in the last edition after going unsold. "We have identified specific roles for both of them (Yuvraj and Malinga)", Ambani said.
