The IPL 2024 auction concluded with lots of success and money being used up by the 10 franchises. A total of over INR 230 cr was spent by the franchises to acquire 72 players to fill up 77 possible slots. Also, the INR 20 crore barrier was broken twice on that day. 

First Pat Cummins with an INR 20.50 cr bid by Sunrisers Hyderabad and then Mitchell Starc with KKR’s winning bid of INR 24.75 cr broke records of being the most expensive buys ever in IPL auction history, bettering Sam Curran’s record. 

Overall, 30 abroad players received a total of Rs 151 crore, accounting for more than half of all players sold. Australians also received 30% of the total monies invested during the IPL 2024 Auction, which was Rs 230.45 crore.

Here is the Best XI of the costliest players in the IPL 2024 auction:

Travis Head (SRH) - 6.50 Cr

Travis Head was bought by the Sunrisers Hyderabad for INR 6.50 cr. He previously played two seasons for Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2016 and 2017, scoring 205 runs in 10 matches with one fifty. He also picked up two wickets with his off-spin. But then he was a fresh-faced cricketer and now Head is one of the best batters in the world.

He won the Player of the Match in the final of World Test Champions 2023 and then repeated the feat in the semi-final and final of the ICC World Cup 2023. Head was expected to go for INR 10 cr or more, but SRH grabbed the Australian batter for a cheap price in comparison to what some other batters got.
