The auction for the Indian Premier League for the year 2020, the 13th edition took place in Kolkata and 338 players went under the hammer. Here are the players who got bagged for whooping prices.
Australian pacer Pat Cummins became IPL 2020 auction's most expensive buy after getting bought for ₹15.5 crores by KKR. Cummins also became the most expensive overseas buy in IPL history and the second most expensive player in the IPL auction history after Yuvraj.
KXIP spent ₹10.75 crores on Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, making him the second-most expensive buy and this one, you couldn’t even imagine it in your dreams as spinner Piyush Chawla became IPL 2020's most expensive Indian buy at ₹6.75 crores.
The Australians made merry at the auctions yet again and Nathan Counter Nile who set himself a base price of ₹1 crore, returned to Mumbai Indians after six years, for a whopping ₹8 crore.
Sheldon Cottrell was one of the trending names before the auctions commenced. The West Indian pacer had expectations to trigger a bidding war, and so he did, between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab before Delhi Capitals made it a three-way race. However, KXIP had the final laugh by bagging him for 8.5 crores.
Proteas speedster Chris Morris might have made the news, pocketing a big sum of ₹10 crores, but the news didn't go down well with many.
