England pair Matt Prior and Ravi Bopara plus Ireland batsman Kevin O'Brien all failed to attract bids at the auction for this year's Indian Premier League.


It was the second year running that the trio failed to attract interest.


Former Hampshire batsman and rising Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell fetched the highest bid of 1 million dollars from Mumbai Indians.


Abhishek Nayar and RP Singh also invited unexpectedly high bids for the sixth edition of the IPL.


Maxwell's price was significantly lower than the top sale achieved last year when India's Ravindra Jadeja was sold to Chennai for 2 million dollars.


The next highest sale was Ajantha Mendis who was sold for 725,000 dollars to Pune Warriors India.
