Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins, on Thursday, became the most expensive foreign player to be purchased in the history of the Indian Premier League

Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins, on Thursday, became the most expensive foreign player to be purchased in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Cummins was sold to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for Rs 15.5 crore in the IPL 2020 auction held in Kolkata.

Cummins broke England all-rounder Ben Stokes’ record, who has purchased for Rs 14.5 crore at IPL 2017 auction. Not only that, the fast bowler is now the second most expensive player to be purchased in the history of IPL auctions. Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh tops the list. He was signed by the Delhi franchise for Rs 16 crore in 2015.

Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals were involved in an intense bidding war for Cummins, who had a base price of Rs 2 crore. However, he was eventually purchased by KKR for Rs 15.5 crore. The Aussie pacer earlier featured in 16 matches for Delhi.

Another Australian, Glenn Maxwell, who entered the auction with a base price of Rs 2 crore, was purchased by Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) for Rs 10.75 crore. On expected lines, South African all-rounder Chris Morris walked away with a handsome pay package. He was purchased by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for Rs 10 crore. Chris Lynn (Rs 2 crore), Jason Roy (Rs 1.5 crore), and Tom Banton (Rs 1 crore), all of whom were expected to be in demand, surprisingly went for their base price to Mumbai Indians, KKR and Delhi Capitals respectively.

Among Indians, veteran leg-spinner Piyush Chawla was the most expensive purchase at Rs 6.75 crore. He was bought by Chennai Super Kings. Varun Chakravarthy, despite a poor last season, was bought by KKR for Rs 4 crore. Yashasvi Jaiswal was purchased by Rajasthan Royals for Rs 2.4 crore. Robin Uthappa and Jaydev Unadkat also went to RR for Rs 3 crore.
