IPL 2024: Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc sold for Rs 24.75 crore, broke this record of Cummins in two hours
The most expensive player of the Indian Premier League has now become Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc. This cricketer has broken all the records of the IPL auction. In the mini-auction going on in Dubai for IPL 2024, the biggest bid so far has been made on Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc, who has been bought by two-time winners Kolkata Knight Riders for Rs 24.75 crore.
With this, Starc has broken the record of Australia's world-winning team captain Pat Cummins, who had become the most expensive cricketer in IPL history today. Pat Cummins was bought by Sunrisers Hyderabad for Rs 20.50 crore. There was a war between RCB and Sunrisers to buy Cummins.
In the end, Cummins was successful in winning the match. His base price was Rs 2 crore. Earlier, England all-rounder Sam Curran was the most expensive cricketer in IPL, who was bought by Punjab Kings for Rs 18.50 crore.
