The Australian cricketer, whose base price was $200,000, was finally snapped for a whopping $1 million by the Mumbai Indians in the last auction.

Malinga’s ‘light’ wig
The colourful bushy wig which resembles the hairstyle of Mumbai Indians’ popular bowler Lasith Malinga has a new addition this season.
One can hear the sellers outside the Wankhede Stadium vehemently screaming ‘Lightwala Malinga’ (wig). The wig, which sells like a hot cake, can be bought for Rs 300 but one with good bargaining power, can own it at Rs 200 also.
Rayudu misses bus
Ambati Rayudu, one of the consistent performers for Mumbai Indians, apparently missed the team bus yesterday.
Rayudu was seen outside the team hotel waiting for a car to take him to the Wankhede Stadium.
