England all-rounder Ben Stokes was the most expensive buy in the IPL player auction at Rs 12.5 crore while Steve Smith – the Australia skipper who led Rising Pune Supergiants last year -- and Ajinkya Rahane have demonstrated their leadership skills on the big stage. Kolkata Knight Riders will also name their captain to live on TV.
