IPL 8 auction: Yuvraj Singh's worth increases to 16 crore!
The auction of the IPL 8 players turned out to be a success for former Team India member Yuvraj Singh. He was bought for a record Rs 16 crore (USD 2.57 million approx) by Delhi Daredevils on Monday.

He had a base price of Rs 2 crore, but increased his worth after Daredevils and Royal Challengers Bangalore wanted him for their teams. Most of the people were surprised by the price offered for his skills as he hasn't been able to show any spark lately.

Till the conclusion of the morning session of the auction 156 players were auctioned this morning and 39 were bought.

It is worthwhile to mention that actually four teams - Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers, Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils wanted to buy his skills, but only Delhi Daredevils succeeded in the interesting tug of war between teams.

Delhi Daredevils spent a huge amount in this auction and have the largest purse of Rs 39.75 cr as compared to other franchises taking part in the auction. Delhi Daredevils also bought Sri Lankan captain and all-rounder Angelo Mathews for Rs 7.5 crore which incidentally is the third highest price in the first two rounds of auction.

It would be interesting to see whether Yuvi would be able to prove his worth in the season and please his fans with some marvelous shots or not. Good Luck Yuvi!!
