Below is list of players purchased, retained or bought in the live auction being held at Bangalore by Kochi IPL Team. Please refer to below table for list. This was first time Kochi was in for Live Auction. They were new but still calm in the auction. They were with their coach Lawson. They bagged 11 players and still have $2 million to spend. Most funny part of the Kochi auction was Sreesanth. They bid for him at the last movement not for penny but for 900,000 USD thats pretty huge looking at his performance in the previous IPL. So, they did balance with solid team and local support.
