IPL 2020 auction witnessed some of the greatest buys in the whole IPL. Here are the top five expensive buys for the season.
Pat Cummins- 15.5 crore- KKR
Australia’s Pat Cummins, as expected, grabbed more this year and became the most expensive overseas player in the history of IPL. The pacer went for 15.5 crore rupees to KKR, the franchise he played for some years ago.
Glenn Maxwell- 10.75 crore-KXIP
Another Australian to go big was Glenn Maxwell who will be returning to KXIP once again. The all-rounder recently took a break from the game and was back only recently. He also was left out of the ODI squad of Australia.
Chris Morris-10 crore- RCB
South Africa’s Chris Morris was another attraction in today’s auction as he went for whopping 10 crores to RCB. RR, KXIP also showed interest on the all-rounder but it was RCB who finally grabbed him. He certainly will be a player to watch out for.
Sheldon Cottrell- 8.5 Crore-KXIP
Cottrell is a well-known name among the Indian fans and looks like we are going to be treated with more salutes as the man is picked up in the IPL by KXIP. Cottrell went for 8.5 crore and both RR and DC showed interest in him as well. However, KXIP won the 3-way battle.
Nathan Coulter-Nile- 8 Crore- MI
It was an intense battle for both CSK and MI but this time for Nathan Coulter-Nile. The all-rounder was then picked up by MI for 8 crores. Mumbai Indians, who gave away Ben Cutting, had their eyes on an all-rounder and Nathan Coulter-Nile fitted that spot. Similarly, for CSK, they needed someone to provide strength in all the three departments but unfortunately, they couldn’t pick him up.
