SummaryVijay Mallya's RCB: We are satisfied with the players we had acquired today. And we are happy that we bought Yuvraj Singh.

Royal Challengers Bangalore owner Vijay Mallya today lodged an official complaint to the IPL Governing Council, saying his franchise coughed up Rs 4 crore more on buying all-rounder Yuvraj Singh on the first day of the players' auction here.

RCB had almost bought Yuvraj for Rs 10 crore when Kolkata Knight Riders joined in the bidding, and eventually the left-handed batsman was sold for Rs 14 crore to the Bangalore outfit.

Mallya, however, said that the hammer had fallen at Rs 10 crore for Yuvraj.

"The hammer did go down at Rs 10 crore. Normally, my understanding is that when the hammer falls down, that's the final," he said.

"We have written to the IPL Governing Council regarding this. I am hopeful that they (IPL GC) will consider the matter," Mallya told 'Times Now'.

Mallya said he was otherwise satisfied with his team's acquisitions on the first day of the auction. “I am satisfied with the players we had acquired today. I am happy that we bought Yuvraj," he said.
