Livingstone was with Rajasthan Royals in the previous season of IPL and has now become the highest-paid overseas player in the ongoing auctions.He had a great 2021, where he was the 'Player of the Tournament' while playing for Birmingham Phoenix in the inaugural edition of The Hundred.Punjab's big-splurging continued with them bidding quickly for West Indies all-rounder Odean Smith's services. Smith's good showing with bat and ball in ODIs against India attracted attention from Lucknow Super Giants too.Despite Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals trying to get the deal in their favour respectively, Punjab stood their ground to buy him for INR 6 crores.

But after Jansen's price went past INR 4 crores, Mumbai backed out and Hyderabad sealed the deal at INR 4.2 crores.Shivam Dube received bids from Lucknow and Punjab. But Chennai entered the fray at INR 2.6 crores and eventually won the bid at INR 4 crores.
