The biggest buys of the day were Shane Watson (Rs 9.5 Crore to RCB) and Pawan Negi (Rs 8.5 Crore to Delhi). 

It was pretty shocking that Martin Guptill did not attract any bids while the likes of Irfan Pathan went for just his base price. Meanwhile there was a lot more interest in someone like little known legspinner M Ashwin (Rs 4.5 Crore to Pune). Each team went after specific players with glee but there definitely seemed to have been a lot more research done in the domestic performances. Someone like Eklavya Dwivedi (Rs 1 Crore to Gujarat Lions), who was noticed by Suresh Raina, his Uttar Pradesh skipper also benefited from the same.

Some of the other major buys from the pool of uncapped Indian players were Deepak Hooda (4.2 crores to SRH), Karun Nair (INR 4 crores to DD), Nathu Singh (INR 3.2 crores to MI), M Ashwin (INR 4.5 crore to Rising Pune Supergiants) and Rishabh Pant for (INR 1.9 crore to DD).
