WPL Auction LIVE: The Adani Group owned Gujarat Giants employed the most out of the box strategy in the inaugural WPL auction. The Rachael Haynes-coached side targeted overseas players early on before going for the Indian domestic players.

"We have depth in domestic circuit. Hence targeted overseas players first. We knew once we had the foreigners we could form an 11 with the talent we have in domestic circut," Nooshin al Khadeer, the team's bowling coach said.

The Giants eventually filled out their maximum player quota of 18 with INR.5 lakh still in hand. They, though, will have to take a tough call on the captain for the team with no clear cut choice to lead the team.
