IPL Season 7 has already started with a bang as far as the player auction is concerned. Never have we seen such exuberant sums of monies splashed to capture players. The numbers are staggering and put top footballers salaries to shame. This year we witnessed Delhi playing real life daredevils by not retaining players and building a team from scratch splashing the cash on acquiring services of Dinesh Kathik (INR 12.50 Crores) and Kevin Pietersen (INR 9 Crores).

Teams like Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab have also built strong teams with a good mix of International and domestic players. Kings XI Punjab in particular have bagged a few super players in Glenn Maxwell, Mitchel Johnson and Virendra Shewag.

The big teams Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings have picked a couple of big players and have retained their core team.

I have sourced information from publications and sites to compile an infograph on key statistics from IPL 7 player auction. Feel free to share your thoughts, feedback and suggestions.
