Stokes and Mills - popular picks.

Going into the IPL auction, there was no doubt that England star Ben Stokes would attract the most attention after his glittering display with bat and ball during the recent tour of India.

The franchises didn’t disappoint as there was a massive bidding war for the 25-year-old all-rounder before Rising Pune Supergiants bought him for a staggering ₹14.5 crore [Dh7.9m].

The second highest earner was Stokes’ international teammate Tymal Mills, who was purchased for ₹12 crore [Dh6.6m] by the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Pune captain Steve Smith was quick to congratulate Stokes, insisting that the first round is on the Englishman when they meet next.

Here, we look at the top Twitter reactions on the Stokes and Mills purchases.
