Karthik, who used to play for the Mumbai Indians till the previous season, wasn't retained by the Reliance-owned IPL team. And they also did not use their right to match card to bring him back into the squad.

With the Daredevils having a lot of purse money remaining, it allowed them to go the distance to bring in Karthik as their keeper-batsman, joining the pair of Murali Vijay and Kevin Pietersen as their other players at that time.

Apart from Karthik, Robin Uthappa went for a princely sum of Rs.5 crores as well with the Kolkata Knight Riders opting to bring in him in place of Brendon McCullum, who was lost to the Chennai Super Kings. Chennai spent Rs.3.25 crores for McCullum and may well play him as a pure batsman given that they already have MS Dhoni in their side.

Among the Australian players sold from this second and third set of players, was George Bailey who will, in all probability go on to captain Kings XI Punjab. Punjab paid Rs.3.25 crores to bring him into the side after Bailey was a part of the Super Kings for a few seasons without getting too many games.

Mumbai Indians won the bid for Michael Hussey but had to pay Rs.5 million for him while Sunrisers Hyderabad bolstered their top-order batting with the selection of Aaron Finch for Rs.4 crores. Rajasthan and Punjab were able to retain the duo Brad Hodge and Shaun Marsh respectively but did not have to pay much of a premium - the right-handed player going for Rs.2.4 crores while the southpaw being bought for Rs.2.2 crores.

Chennai were able to win back Faf du Plessis for Rs.4.75 and buy Dwayne Smith from the Mumbai Indians for Rs.4.5 while Hyderabad managed to retain Amit Mishra for Rs.4.75. 

Some of the other players sold in these two sets were Zaheer Khan (Rs.2.6 crores to Bangalore), JP Duminy (Rs.2.2 crores to Delhi) and Manoj Tiwary (Rs.2.8 crores to Delhi).

The biggest surprise of these two sets of players in the auction, was the non-selection of Ross Taylor. Taylor had been in tremendous touch in recent times, having smashed a couple of centuries against India to go with a couple of other such efforts in the ODIs. Of course, Taylor can return back to the auction pool as one of the unsold players for the end of the auction if anyone's still interested in buying him.
