The auction for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League lived up to its hype and expectations as few unexpected names bagged some whopping deals while few big names missed out on the chance to earn a lucrative IPL contract.

The likes of Ben Stokes, Tymal Mills, T Natarajan, Rashid Khan have hit the jackpot with mouth-watering deals while some big players like Ishant Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Imran Tahir, Angelo Mathews went unsold. Well, one cannot blame the franchises for ignoring these big names as they were looking to build the strongest-possible team from a limited purse.

The auction is all done and dusted now and here are some of the best Twitter reactions:

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
