List of most expensive buys at the IPL 2019 Auction

IPL 2019 auctions saw 351 players going under the hammer. However, there were some who made it really huge, here is the list of the most expensive buys for 2019 edition

Every year alongside the Indian Premier League, the auctions are an event in itself. The IPL auctions over the years have seen massive interest from fans and media. It is the ‘auctions’ that make IPL one of the richest sporting leagues in the world. And of course the prize money as well. So far we have witnessed 12 IPL auctions, since the league’s inception in 2008.

IPL 2019 auction began with a smash, with Jaydev Unadkat stealing the show and bagging 8.4 crores from Rajasthan Royals, after being released by the same franchise. In the 2018 edition, RR had signed him for a value of 11.5 crores, however, Unadkat failed to live up the expectations and was inconsistent throughout. RR’s pattern looked like they are on for a cost-cutting task.

Along with Unadkat the next player to join the expensive players club was Varun Chakaravarthy, who was sold to Kings XI Punjab for the same cost.

On the other hand, England all-rounder Sam Curran, who was the Man of the Series in the five-match Test series between England and Australia earlier this year, was sold to Kings XI Punjab for a whopping amount of Rs 7.20 crore, Whereas, South African batsman Colin Ingram lured a number of Rs 6.40 crore from Delhi Capitals. Shivam Dube was sold for Rs 5 crore after having a base price of Rs 20 lakh, Dube is the man who recently hit 5 sixes in an over.

IPL auctions have always been an interesting affair to watch out for. IPL 2019 auction saw 351 players go under the hammer, while some got sold and few are still awaiting a positive response. However, with ICC world Cup 2019 not much away, many big players might not be a part of the season, which would ultimately give an opportunity for hidden talents to showcase their game.
