IPL Auctions: Twitter erupts as Pune shelve out 14.5 crore for Ben Stokes

As expected, Ben Stokes made the headlines in the initial stages of the IPL 10 auctions after being sold to Rising Pune Supergiants for a whopping INR 14.5 crore.

The battle to steal Stokes started with Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Daredevils bidding for the English all-rounder. While Mumbai and Bangalore also showed their interests in the star player, it was Pune who scooped Stokes with a large bid right at the end.

While Pune’s decision to shelve out such a huge amount on a player who will not be available for the full tournament left many baffled, 

Twitter had a field day thanks to Sanjiv Goenka’s franchisee.
