Ravi Chandran Ashwin was among the first players to go under the hammer. The spinner goes to Kings XI Punjab and the Chennai Super Kings couldn’t bring him back to their dug out. The Chennai Super Kings retained MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja. They were keen to get Ashwin in the auctions but this comes as a surprise.

Ashwin would be a little disappointed not going to the Chennai Super Kings for it happens to be his home team. But he would surely be happy with the hefty price he’s gone for.
Ashwin is among the leading wicket takers in the IPL with 100 wickets to his name. Ashwin is a champion bowler and he’s been a pillar of India’s success in recent years.
