CricketIPL Auction 2020

With 73 slots to fill for the eight teams, this was a mini-auction ahead of the next big revamp for the 2021 season.

Pat Cummins set the new record by becoming the most expensive overseas player of all time at the IPL auctions (behind only Yuvraj Singh overall). Glenn Maxwell and Chris Morris went for Rs 10 crores or more while Nathan Coulter-Nile, Shimron Hetmyer, and Sheldon Cottrell attracted big bids from teams.

Among Indian players, almost no one could have expected that Piyush Chawla will fetch the highest bid but MS Dhoni’s team has a way of springing such surprises that very few see coming.

Summary of IPL 2020 auction: 

Total money spent by franchises: Rs 140.30 crores

Total slots vacant in 8 teams: 73

Total slots filled up by 8 teams: 62

Total overseas players bought: 29
