Aaron Finch will head to his eighth IPL franchise, Royal Challengers Bangalore. The possibility had been discussed before.

Kolkata Knight Riders chilled throughout the Pat Cummins bidding war, coolly entering at the last moment and pocketing him for a whopping $2.18 million bid.

Brendon McCullum had shelled out the money, and he instantly asked for some favours in return.

Cummins, meanwhile, had his adrenalin pumping, as happens to anyone who becomes a millionaire in the space of minutes.

Chennai Super Kings waited and went for, you guessed it, another spinner, taking their tally to six (without counting part-timers Suresh Raina and Kedar Jadhav).

Chris Lynn will head to Mumbai Indians, and he could only see the big positives from that move. You'll still have to face Jasprit Bumrah in the nets, Lynny.

Glenn Maxwell will head back to Kings XI Punjab for the second time.

As unveiling videos go, this one from Shimron Hetmyer is right up there.
