Ahead of the 11th edition of VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL), the business day or in simple words, the 'IPL auction' took place in Bengaluru on Saturday, January 27, 2018. With big money spent on cricketing talent, Mumbai Indians re-signed Keiron Pollard with the 'Right To Match' rule for ₹5.4 Cr. MI bagged Bangladesh fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman for ₹2.2 Cr after SRH didn't use their RTM card.

Another pacer Mumbai Indians bagged was Australia's Pat Cummins for ₹5.40 Cr as DD said no to RTM.

Hardik Pandya's brother, Krunal Pandya was retained for ₹8.8 Cr with RTM.

Mumbai were in a bidding war for the likes of KL Rahul, David Miller, Chris Lynn Colin Munro, Dinesh Karthik, but were unsuccessful. South Africa's David Miller would've been an MI player had Kings XI Punjab not played the RTM (Right to match) card.

The most expensive Indian player on Day 1 was KL Rahul for ₹11 Cr who went to Kings XI Punjab.

The most expensive buy of the VIVO IPL Auction so far is England's Ben Stokes who was snapped by Rajasthan Royal for ₹12.5 Cr. 

U-19 Captain and Mumbai's Prithvi Shaw was bagged by Delhi Daredevils for ₹1.2 Cr.
