With the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup homing in immediately after the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League, franchises will look to add more overseas muscle to their squads on Tuesday's IPL player auction in Jaipur. Ronchi's retirement from the worldwide game mean he will be available for the full duration of the competition, and teams like Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals could spark a huge tussle at the auction table.
He was listed in the IPL auction with a base price at 20m rupees (around £225,000) and was bought for 64m rupees. Indian all-rounder Jaydev Unadkat, who was bought for Rs 11.5 crore by Rajasthan Royals, will also feature in the same bracket.
Rajasthan Royals bagged Aaron for Rs 2.40 crore momemts after shelling out a whopping Rs 8.40 crore for Unadkat. However, no franchise showed interest in picking the sixer king. Another batsman Hanuma Vihari went under the hammer and is sold to Delhi Capitals for Rs 2 crore. The 37-year-old cricketer will be brought back in the auction pool later in the evening.
Shimron Hetmyer was the first big earner in the IPL 2019 auctions as he was picked up for INR 4.2 Crore by Royal Challengers Bangalore.
His teammate Brathwaite, the star of 2016 World T20, was sold to KKR for Rs five crore after a bidding war between the Dinesh Karthik-led side and Kings XI Punjab.
