Within a total kitty of 167 crore, spent on 80 players, including 29 overseas stars, Punjab Kings spent the most for English all-rounder Sam Curran who became the most expensive player in the history of the Indian Premier League during the 2023 mini-auction.

At the Grand Hyatt hotel in Kochi, the Shikhar Dhawan-led side shelled out INR 18.5 crore for Curran, who had a base reserve price of INR 2 crore on December 23.

Curran’s selling price surpassed the record set by Rajasthan Royals when the side had bid Rs 16.25 crore for South Africa all-rounder Chris Morris ahead of the 2021 season.

Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore entered the bidding race to get the Player of the Match of the T20 World Cup final as his price quickly reached Rs 7 crore, at which point RR joined the bidding. RCB dropped out shortly after as RR and MI continued to engage in a fierce bidding war. Chennai Super Kings, PBKS and Lucknow SuperGiants entered the fray too, but Punjab eventually sealed the deal.

Later, Cameron Green also crossed the mark with MI agreeing to a Rs 17.5 crore deal with the Aussie.

Ben Stokes, meanwhile, equalled Morris’ mark as CSK roped him in. He will be seen as a potential successor to skipper MS Dhoni, who could be playing his last season in front of the Chepauk crowd.West Indies’ Nicholas Pooran became the most expensive wicketkeeper ever, going for eight times his base price to LSG at Rs 16 crore.
