The IPL auction on Thursday generated plenty of emotions. First up, Shahrukh Khan's Tamil Nadu team-mates were delighted he went to the Punjab Kings for Rs 5.25 crore.
India Test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara returns to the IPL for the first time since 2014, this time turning out for the Chennai Super Kings.
England batsman Sam Billings went to the Delhi Capitals for Rs 2 crore, but his girlfriend makes a pertinent point.
The Kolkata Knight Riders' Bollywood co-owners, Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla, weren't present at the auction, but their kids were.
