The Indian Premier League (IPL) auctions were held in Bangalore on Monday. For the uninitiated, IPL is a Twenty20 cricket tournament held in India in April-May and draws players from across the globe in a month-long extravaganza.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter couldn’t hold its own while the auctions happened. 

Besides ensuring that #IPLAuction topped worldwide trends for the better part of the day, Indian cricket fans couldn’t stop talking about English cricketer Ben Stokes, who fetched an astronomical sum of Rs. 1.45 billion ($2 million) at the auction, making him the highest overseas purchase in IPL’s decade-long history.
