John Pennington and Chetan Narula look back on the auction ahead of the 2014 Indian Premier League, which took place earlier this week.
They summarise the key moves during the two-day bidding war in Bangalore and then analyse which players went for bargain prices and which moves surprised them.
Chetan then gives his view on which franchises have done the best business and then assesses what comes next for the IPL, which is yet to finalise dates or indeed venues due to clashes with elections.
