SA20 Auction: From top 5 most expensive players to full list of squads, all you need to know

On Monday, the maiden auction of the SA20 T20 league took place with players from all over the globe going under the hammer.

While South African sensation Tristan Stubbs broke all records, becoming the most expensive pick at R 9.2 million (INR 4.1 crore), as he joined Sunrisers Eastern Cape after an intense bidding war, South African limited overs and Test skippers Temba Bavuma and Dean Elgar went unsold. 

Stubbs was signed by five-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Mumbai Indians in the 2022 season of the league as a replacement for Tymal Mills while he was still uncapped.

"Yeah, I mean it is crazy and I am still shaking. It is crazy! I played most of my cricket in St George's [Park, which will be the home of Sunrisers Eastern Cape] and I really enjoy playing cricket there. Like Neil [McKenzie] said after the SA A tour [I have been travelling everywhere]. I really enjoyed the Hundred and played seven consecutive games. I do feel I have more experience and I have played more cricket in different situations. The Hundred competition helped my bowling more and look to keep evolving. I am open to whatever the team needs [from me]," ESPNCricinfo quoted Stubbs as saying.

The six teams in the league are owned by IPL franchises -- MI Cape Town (Reliance), Pretoria Capitals (JSW), Paarl Royals (Royals Sports Group), Durban Super Giants (RPG-Sanjiv Goenka), Johannesburg Super Kings (India Cements), Sunrisers Eastern Cape (Sunrisers Hyderabad owner Kaviya Maran).

The other big buy for Sunrisers was their own IPL player -- left-arm pacer Marco Jansen for R 6.1 million (USD 344,000).
