The 2016 edition of an Indian Premier League auctions have been started with a BANG.
All the marquee players have been sold out on the very first day, with the controversial England international Kevin Pietersen is the first to go under the hammer.
Pietersen, 35, sold to Rising Pune Supergiants for INR 3.5 crore after a bidding fight between Pune and Gujarat Lions.
