NEW DELHI - Twenty20 freelance Chris Gayle found a team at the third time of asking while seam bowlers Jaydev Unadkat and Andrew Tye earned big on the second and final day of the player auction ahead of this year's Indian Premier League (IPL) yesterday.

West Indian Gayle went unsold in two rounds with none of the eight franchises looking interested in the swashbuckling left-hander whose five centuries in IPL is the most by any batsman.

It was in the third round that Kings XI Punjab bought Gayle, IPL's leading six-hitter, at his base price of 20 million Indian rupees ($F6,280,820m).

Unadkat emerged as the most expensive Indian buy from the two-day auction.
