The much-awaited IPL auction for the 2017 season is now going on in Bangalore. Ben Stokes and Tymal Mills were the hottest picks among the eight franchises, and both the players were sold out after intense bidding. The Pune Supergiants bought Stokes for a whopping 2.16 million USD, while Tymal Mills succeeded in grabbing 1.8 million USD.

Will Stokes bring luck to the Pune Supergiants?
