The rule of secret bidding auction was implemented in the initial seasons of IPL. Under this auction, when two teams were ready to buy the player for the same amount, a secret bid was made and the highest bidder would buy that player. But now this rule does not apply in IPL. Today we are going to tell you about those 3 players of IPL history whose auction was done through secret bidding.
Shane Bond is one of those players in IPL history on whom a secret bid was made. In the IPL auction on this former fast bowler, 2 teams had made equal bids. Both teams wanted to include Shane Bond in their team. In such a situation, through secret bidding, the KKR team made Shane Bond a part of their team. At that time his price was $ 750,000.
Kieron Pollard is one of the best all-rounder players in IPL history. In the IPL 2010 auction, Mumbai Indians, CSK, and RCB were ready to pay an equal amount for this player. For this reason, the Trai Broker rule was brought. In this way, Pollard became a part of Mumbai Indians in the amount of $ 750,000.
In the IPL 2012 auction, both CSK and Deccan Chargers wanted Jadeja to be included in their team. Because of this, a secret bid was made on Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja was bought by CSK for $2 million.
