England all-rounder Ben Stokes was signed for almost £1.4million in the Indian Premier League auction.

Stokes, 26, was named the MVP at last year’s tournament and will hope for similar success during the upcoming campaign having joined Rajasthan Royals.

‘Ben is a cricketer of today and a cricketer of the future,’ Royals chief executive Ranjit Barthakur said.

England Test captain Joe Root, making himself available for bidding for the first time, went unsold in the first round of the auction.

After Stokes, England’s biggest earner was Chris Woakes, who bagged a £820,000 contract from Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Sussex all-rounder Jofra Archer, who was born in West Indies but intends to play international cricket for England, went for £800,000 after his eye-catching performances in the Big Bash League.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler (£485,000), all-rounder Moeen Ali (£187,000) and batsman Jason Roy (£165,000) will also feature in this year’s IPL, which starts in April.

Root, who captained England during their unsuccessful tour of Australia this winter as they lost the Ashes, was not the only high-profile player to fail to secure a contract.

West Indies opener Chris Gayle, the most successful T20 batsman ever, and South African great Hashim Amla are also without a franchise but could be picked up when bidding resumes on Sunday morning.
