The 2013 Pepsi Indian Premier League Player Auction, held in Chennai on Feb 3, 2013, saw 37 players being bought for a total sum of USD 11.89 million.
Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell was the most expensive player to be sold at the auction as the Mumbai Indians shelled out a whopping USD 1 million for him.
Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke were the biggest names of the 108 players to go under the hammer. While Ponting was snapped up by the Mumbai Indians, Clarke was bought back by his last years franchise, Pune Warriors India. Both the Australians were sold for their base price of USD 400,000.
Royal Challengers Bangalore bought the most number of players seven [three Indians and four overseas] while the new franchise, Sunrisers Hyderabad, managed to get six players [one Indian and five overseas].
Australians dominated the auction with as many as 13 of their players sold at the event. Six players each from India and Sri Lanka, five from the West Indies, four South Africans and three New Zealanders found themselves a team during the bidding process.
Out of the 37 players sold, 14 have never played in the IPL before, while 23 will return to the tournament. Nathan Coulter-Nile was the only uncapped player to be bought [by the Mumbai Indians].
For the complete list of the purchased and unsold players and an overview of where the nine franchises stand in terms of finances post-auction

Chris Gayle should be paid the sum total of all fees received by RCB's 30 or so players.

According to this link,


he gets paid $560,000. He went unsold in the auction in 2011 as there
were questions about his availability. When that was cleared up,
Kumble got him as a replacement for Nannes in mid-season. In 2012, the
rules were that Bangalore had the first choice on retaining him, but
Gayle had to be happy with the price, else he could opt for an
auction, where Mumbai were ready with a $2 million dollar purse
exclusively for him. If Bangalore paid too much for him, their purse
for the 2012 auction would have been significantly reduced due to the
overall salary cap.

My take is that they paid him the $560K and then slipped something
significantly more under the table to keep him happy. IPL rules are a
work in progress and this is one area which would have been tightened
up subsequently to prevent any recurrence.
