Starc's Record Bid, Two Players Cross 20 Cr

A historic moment unfolded at the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 auction in Dubai on Tuesday, as Mitchell Starc emerged as the costliest player in IPL history. The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) secured the services of the Australian pacer with a staggering bid of INR 24.75 crores.

The IPL 2024 auction witnessed two players breaching the 20-crore mark for the first time in the lucrative T20 cricket league. Prior to Starc’s record-breaking bid, his Australian teammate Pat Cummins was acquired by Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) for 20.50 crores.

Notably, all-rounder Sam Curran, who was the most expensive player in the previous year’s auction, saw his record surpassed by Starc and Cummins. Punjab Kings (PBKS) had shelled out INR 18.50 crores for the Englishman in the previous auction.

A total of 332 players from 13 countries participated in the IPL 2024 auction, with 216 of them being Indian players. Following player retention, releases, and trades, the 10 teams collectively had 77 slots to fill, including 30 overseas player quotas.

However, only KKR (23) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) (22) chose not to utilize their full quota of 25 players. Despite this, all 30 overseas player slots were filled.

Apart from Starc and Cummins joining the 20-crore club, other notable players who commanded premiums of 10 crores or more at the IPL 2024 auction included Daryl Mitchell (INR 14.00 cr to CSK), Harshal Patel (INR 11.75 cr to PBKS), Alzarri Joseph (INR 11.50 cr to RCB), and Spencer Johnson (INR 10 cr to GT).
