This year in the list of top 5 most expensive players, 3 out of 5 players are British. Let’s start with the most sought-after player of the auction… There was a 3-way bidding war for Sam Curran between Punjab, Mumbai and Chennai… the England all-rounder finally went to Punjab Kings for Rs 18.5 crore….making him the most expensive player in the history of the Indian Premier League. Before Curran…it was South African all-rounder Chris Morris who was the most expensive buy of the IPL when the Rajasthan Royals paid Rs 16.25 crore for him in 2011.
